Twice A Bride by Mona Hodgson

About the Book
Love lost doesn’t mean love lost forever. 
Can unexpected romance deliver a second chance for two deserving widows?
Full of resolve, young widow Willow Peterson decides to pursue her dreams to be an artist as she settles into a new life in the growing mountain town of Cripple Creek.  When she lands a job working as a portrait painter with handsome entrepreneur and photographer Trenton Van Der Veer, the road before Willow seems to be taking a better-than-anticipated turn.
With questions tugging at several hearts in town, including the Sinclair Sisters’ beloved Miss Hattie, change is traveling down the tracks as several unexpected visitors make their way out West.  Will the new arrivals threaten the deep family bonds of the Sinclair sisters and the roots of love that are just taking hold for Willow?  
Filled with the resonating questions that all women face, this romance awakens hope against grief, love against loss, and dreams against life’s unexpected turns.

My Thoughts
This fourth and final Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek was probably my favorite of all of them. I really enjoyed meeting Willow in the last couple books so I was happy that she was gonna get a second chance at love in this book. I love her caring heart and selfless ways it made her quite easy to love. And Trenton was a great hero for the story. His speech impediment was an interesting quirk to give a character and it went far in endearing him to me. I wanted to smack the people that looked down on him for it, especially the pastor who told him that it was from the devil.
Another cool thing about this book is that we finally got to meet the girl's father Harlan Sinclair. I don't want to give any spoilers but I was happy that he, Miss Hattie, and Boney each found someone spend the rest of their lives with. Check out this book to see who!
