After reading and loving the third book in this series (The Bride Wore Blue) I was thrilled to be transported back to Cripple Creek and the characters that I had fallen in love with! In my opinion Twice A Bride is a phenomenal conclusion to this series, which fans of the Sinclair Sisters as well as new readers will devour!!! I love the authors writing style and especially that God and family are the top priorities of her characters lives! Mona portrays 1890's Colorado so well that you really feel like you are there! I will stop myself now to keep from giving away too much of the plot. My only complaint is that the story seemed to lag at times, however, having said that there were many points when I didn't know what was going to happen next, I loved that!!! I cannot wait to go back and read the first two books in this series!!! I highly recommend this book to fans of this series or anyone who enjoys reading historical romance! I recieved this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review. I have done so. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.

I loved this book! This was the first book I have read by Lauraine Snelling and I can tell you now it will not be the last!!! I had not read the first book in this series before reading this one, but it was not confusing at all and now I can't wait to go back and read the first one! I loved the authors writing style and the characters, especially Cassie. She is so human and her personality is so much like me that I fell in love with her immediately! Also, I am very blessed to own my dream horse, a pinto whose personality is almost exactly like Wind Dancer's, needless to say Cassie and Wind Dancer's bond really touched my heart!!! I absolutely loved everything about this book! However, while it does seem to be leading that way, there is almost no romance in this book, a fact that I found very refreshing and welcome, but that romance lovers should be aware of! I cannot say enough about how awesome this book is! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves historical fiction! I cannot wait for the next book! Lauraine Snelling has a new fan in me!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I loved getting to learn about Florence, Italy! The premise and message of the story were really neat and I loved Sofia's writing! Also, as a lover of historical anything I really loved the parts of the story that were told from Nora's perspective in the 1500s. I felt like the story did lag a bit in places and the ending felt a bit rushed and left me with a few unresolved questions, but I think my very favorite part of this book was the last couple of pages of what I would call the epilogue! Read it and you'll see what I mean!!! I really did like this book and I can anticipate reading it again. Because there were questions left unanswered I really hope there will be a sequel!!! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books about Italy, finding yourself and a bit of history! Oh and a sprinkle of romance!!!
