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 for themselves 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 Patrick Maloney or Judson Archer awaits them with open arms. 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, rogues will gamble for the shoes on one's feet, and God's grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks.
Two sisters, two missing misters, a shocking welcome to the Wild West that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their dreams and the hope for true love.

Overall this book isn't terrible but it falls short in plot and character development. The story is comfortable but predictable and the characters lack dimension and substance.
