It has been a while since I read Two Brides Too Many and I somehow missed Too Rich For a Bride, but that did not detract at all from my enjoyment of this latest novel in the series. Vivian Sinclair is the baby sister of the bunch and she has finally made her way to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to join her other three sisters. She has missed her sisters terribly and cant wait to be near them again but that is not her only objective in moving. She is trying to make a new start for herself after suffering a broken heart and she is ready to try her wings at becoming a clothing designer. But nothing goes as she has planned and she finds herself making one poor choice after another in a desperate attempt to keep her head above water.
I connected with this story from the get-go and was completely wrapped up in Vivians adventures and mistakes along the way. I found all of the characters to be believable and the story to be well thought out. Not only was it an enjoyable read but it had a very strong message about the consequences of a choice. Even though Vivian should have known better in some areas, I found her to be portrayed as a woman who just allowed herself to be drawn into the wrong choices without intending to do the wrong thing. Any of us can have that happen if we are not careful, so I was pleased to see this depicted in a novel that could not only tell a captivating tale but could also encourage young and old alike to make the right choices. That is what I look for in Christian Fictiona good story with a good moraland this book delivered.
