Review: A Love Transformed by:Tracie Peterson

 A Love Transformed (Sapphire Brides #3)
About the Book:
The Riveting Final Story in the Sapphire Brides Series
When Clara Vesper's husband, Adolph, dies suddenly, Clara is stunned--but not grief-stricken. Her marriage to Adolph had been arranged, their primary interaction revolving around the sapphire jewelry Clara designed and Adolph produced and sold. Widowed and penniless, with two small children, Clara decides to return to her aunt and uncle's ranch in Montana, the only place she has ever been happy. 


Curtis Billingham, injured in a sapphire mine collapse, is recuperating at the ranch of his friends, Paul and Madeline Sersland. But when the Serslands' niece returns from New York City, Curtis curses both his broken body and his broken past. Clara, the love of his life, has come back to him, but he is no longer worthy of her love. 


Clara's brother-in-law Otto Vesper, Adolph's business partner, fears that the loss of Clara's design skills will doom the company's prospects. Following her to Montana, Otto is prepared to do whatever it takes to get Clara to return with him to New York. 


As Clara fights for love and freedom, a dangerous secret in her late husband's life comes to light, threatening everyone she loves.


My Review:
 Let me first say that Tracie Peterson is a phenomenal author. She is well researched and her story lines are always on point. While some parts of the overall story of  A Love Transformed, can be said as over done it was still a good story overall. It only added to the series and didn't take away, at all.

 Clara's arranged marriage comes to an end but she is still at a loss as to what she will do next. She does have two small children to think about and care for. She decides to return to Montana to live with her aunt and uncle and to hopefully regain her footing.

 While there at their ranch she runs into someone from her past that may beckon for her love once again but there will be many obstacles in her way to see that bring forth any fruit. Meanwhile, a colleague of her late husband's decides that the business that she once was a part of needs to continue and he vows he will do whatever it takes to make the business successful once again.

 Clara is caught in a whirlwind between two different worlds and each threaten her future. She thought that moving to Montana would be the best thing for her and her children but now she is not so sure. Finding out secrets after the passing of her husband is not such a good thing especially when you are trying to rebuild your life.
