What do you do when you can't find a job, really want to be out from under your older sisters' wings, and are just about out of money? How far would you go to maintain your independence? That's Vivian Sinclair's dilemma in The Bride Wore Blue.

The Sinclair sisters are a lot of fun. This is the first book in the "Sisters of Cripple Creek" series that I've read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hodgson took a very serious problem - how to achieve financial independence - and a spiritual one - how to forgive yourself - and addressed them with historical accuracy, emotional depth, and enough lightheartedness to keep the story fun. Vivian's antics were often comical and her run-ins with Carter, a deputy, had enough zaniness to make you blush for her. Trying to untangle the mess she's made of her life, though, has a depth that is belied by the simplicity and beauty of the cover. The message is far deeper than what is normally contained in your typical 'romance' - and could prompt serious soul searching to those in need of personal forgiveness.

Previews are included for Hodgson's next two books at the end of this one (as well as a reader's guide). They sound as fun and dramatic as this one. I can't wait to read them!

I received a free copy of The Bride Wore Blue from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.
