"The Bride Wore Blue" is the third story in the 'Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series'. The youngest Sinclair, Vivian, comes West from Portland, Oregon, to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to join her happily married older sisters, Kate, Nell and Ida. Vivian stays with her aunt Alma at Miss Hattie's Boarding House in Cripple Creek but then it is time for aunt Alma to return to the East. Vivian knows she cannot impose financially on her sisters and sets about finding herself a local job. She fails terribly at the local telephone switchboard center and she is allergic to paper at the local newspaper, so what is a girl to do? Local Sheriff's Deputy, unmarried Carter Alwyn, thinks Vivian is a pretty lady, for certain, but he has his hands full catching three men who are bent on local robberies. Arriving at Cripple Creek, Vivian and aunt Alma are on the very train those robbers attack and Vivian is certain that one of them has a licorce-smelling mouth?
"The Bride Wore Blue" is Book Three of a delightful romantic series that takes place in the old western part of the United States. Vivian, her sisters Kate, Ida, and Nell and their husbands, Deputy Alwyn, and all the other characters are authentic and totally believable, accurately portraying the mores of those long ago times. The plot goes along evenly as Vivian Sinclair tries everywhere in Cripple Creek to obtain work and finally settles for a position in the kind of place that nice folks don't write home about. Good writing, good plot and nice romance, who could ask for more? Readers of romance everywhere will love "The Bride Wore Blue".
