Two Brides Too Many
Two missing misters.
And a shocking welcome to the wild West that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their hope for true love.
Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west—away from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado, to start new lives as mail-order brides.
Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight.
But when the ladies disembark at the train depot, neither fiancé awaits them. The well-bred Sinclair sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in the wild, frontier town—a place where fire threatens to reduce the buildings to rubble, the working women strut the streets, and rogues will gamble for the shoes on one’s feet. A place where God’s grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks.
What Readers are Saying
“Spunky sisters, mail-order brides, a mining town full of men… but where are the right ones? I was captivated from the first page of Two Brides Too Many!”
~Lauraine Snelling, author of The Red River Series and Daughters of Blessing
“Two Brides Too Many is one good book! Mona Hodgson sweeps the reader away with Sinclair sisters Nell and Kat and nestles them in the majesty of Colorado, where a cast of characters eagerly await, to create a home. Hodgson leaves a tasty trail of breadcrumbs ready to lead us into the next story. Two more sisters…I can’t wait!”
~Allison Pittman, author of The Bridegrooms and Lilies in Moonlight
“Strong characters play out an intricately crafted story across a rich tapestry of setting. Not your usual mail-order bride story, and I loved the twists and turns. A real page-turner.”
~Lena Nelson Dooley, author of Wild Prairie Roses and Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico
