The Enterprising Bride by Claire Sanders is the fourth and final book of Ms. Sanders’ “The Masons of Brightfield” series. It is a clean, sweet romance story and as a Book Reviewer, this is my honest review. I was not required to write a positive nor any review.
Each of the books in “The Masons of Brightfield” series has a different main character from the Mason family. However, all of the family members are included in each story to some degree. The Enterprising Bride focuses mainly on the oldest of the Mason siblings, John, and the woman he is in love with, Rosalind. But, John is dragging his feet in regard to getting married. Will Rosalind get tired of waiting and accept the affections of a childhood friend who returns and expresses interest in spending time with her?
Claire Sanders is a talented writer. She engages her readers from the beginning of the story and holds their attention until the end through her well developed, captivating characters who feel like friends. The relationship between the Mason siblings is realistic and includes a bit of sibling teasing and conflict, as well as a bond that holds them together and gives them a love for one another that enables them to encourage and help one another. Her words paint pictures in the reader’s mind and the interactions of the characters bring smiles and occasional chuckles to the reader’s lips.
Ms. Sanders also does a good job of showing both John and Rosalind’s points of view. She clearly shows their character, their thoughts and feelings, and their concerns, frustrations, hopes, and dreams throughout The Enterprising Bride.
She resolves the conflict to the great satisfaction of the reader by the end of the story.
I have read all of the books in Claire Sanders’ “The Masons of Brightfield” series and enjoyed every one of them. Each one presented unique problems for the characters to overcome, whether external or internal, or some of both. Each story presented a very realistic family with realistic relationships and problems that the reader could easily relate to. I will miss the delightful characters of the Mason family, but I greatly look forward to what Ms. Sanders publishes next.
I give The Enterprising Bride by Claire Sanders 5 stars.
