BOOK REVIEW: Clara lacks for nothing in her lavish New York mansion--except love. When her husband, Adolph, dies suddenly, Clara Vesper is stunned. Not grief-stricken, as their marriage had never been a love match, but staggered by what might become of her and her children. For years she designed the sapphire jewelry that made her husband's company a fortune, but she has little money in her own name and soon discovers that she has inherited nothing. Fearing for the welfare of her two small children, she decides to take them to her aunt and uncle's ranch in Montana, the only place she has ever been happy.
But much has changed since she last visited the Montana ranch, both for Clara and for those she was forced to leave behind. And when dangerous secrets from her late husband's past threaten everyone she loves, Clara must fight to remain where she can fulfill her dream.
MY REVIEW: This is the third and final book in Tracie Peterson's Sapphire Brides series. It is preceded by A TREASURE CONCEALED and A BEAUTY TRANSFORMED.
I personally think every author should follow Tracie's example. When you visit her page, you see book after book after book, series after series after series. It is lovely to see so many books by a favorite author! :)
This book is the tale of Clara Vesper after the death of her husband. When prodded by her mother and brother-in-law, she runs to Montana to start a new life for herself and her young twins. But she doesn't bargain on her old love being there.
Of course, one can assume the ending of this tale. After standing up to her mother and her brother-in-law and discovering the truth of her husband's death, she marries ______ and lives happily ever after.
I like Tracie's books, and I liked the preceding books in this series. Unfortuantely, this book was not one of my favorites.
