I am a fairly new reader to Mona Hodgson. I only discovered her less than a year ago, I think, but I thoroughly have enjoyed her books. I love the step back in time and the I honestly think her covers to her books are appealing. (I'm a cover person and although I know not to judge a book by its cover, it sure does to help when a book has an appealing cover!)

This is the third book in the Brides of Cripple Creek series. I have not read all of the books in this series, but I don't feel like I missed out on anything. I am definitely going to buy the rest of the series so that I can feel in some gaps where I'm sure the extra information would be nice.

Vivian wants to be a good girl, like her sisters, and takes steps to try to put her "badness" aside. However, things seem to keep tripping her up. Who knew decision making could be so hard! For some reason, she is attracted to making the wrong decisions where she feels a spiral down to where she feels worthless. Will she finally realize once and for all the key behind making wise decisions? Will she give her heart to Him?

I love the plot to this book because it is so realistic and deals with things we deal with everyday. Not necessarily in the sense of the time period, but we deal with these same issues in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones. I love the honesty, frustration, and at times, the heartache, that Mona leads her readers to experience as they turn the pages in the book.

I received this book free from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
