Bluebonnet Bride is book number 3 in that series. The story opens with Rosalyn, who is waiting in jail to be hanged, unjustly, for the murder of her husband. Her life has been hard and no one knows the trials she has suffered. Rosalyn’s only experience of a supportive family was provided by the two savants her father gave her on the day of her arranged marriage. Her only comfort is that her daughter, Lucy, will be cared for by the trusted servants after her death. Things don’t always happen the way we expect, and so it is with Rosalyn. A tornado passes through town and destroys the jail. This is the chance Rosalyn prayed for. She makes her way home and with the help of her servants, who have been more family to her than her own parents, she and Lucy escape. She and Lucy settle down in a small town and their lives take on the appearance of normalcy. Rosalyn is burdened by her past and fear of detection haunts her, especially when she falls in love with the local sheriff. She wants more than anything to be able to tell him everything but fear of being taken back stops her. When her home burns she is sure it is because of her past. Then her daughter is put into danger. Her past is closing in. Her love for Joel is growing. Joel’s family accepts her as one of their own. How will they feel about her if the secrets she harbors are discovered? I have read both Brazos Bride: first book in this series and High Stakes Bride: second book in this series. This third installment did not disappoint. The series highlights the life of each brother in the Stone family. I love the way the family unity is brought out in each book, but especially in Bluebonnet Bride. Ms. Clemmons brings each character to life in such away you just know you have known them forever. I highly recommend this book. Bluebonnet Bride is my personal favorite in the series. Of course I thought that after reading High Stakes Bride as well. Each story is a stand alone book, but the way all the family members come together in a scrap you wouldn’t want to miss a single story. Reviewed by best Selling Author Mary Adair ***** I give Bluebonnet Bride 5 stars

    BLUE BONNET BRIDE: Men of Stone Mountain Book 3 Joel By Caroline Clemmons Four stars Sweet Western Romance This is the third book of a trilogy written so that a new reader to the series, such as me, is able to catch up with the family dynamics.

The story opens in 1873 with Rosalyn Vandagraff facing being hanged in two days, having been convicted of murdering her husband Robert by using a poisonous plant in his coffee. Her seven-year old daughter Lucy is being cared for by her own former nanny, Birdie, a Black woman with her husband Luther. However, Rosalyn worries that Robert’s brothers who are neither married nor have children will take Lucy in order to get her share of her father’s money. But before Rosalyn is led to the gallows, a tornado hits and destroys the jail from which Rosalyn escapes. She grabs a bag that contains her financial savings and her daughter and goes as far as she feels she will be safe from anybody who might know her back in her old hometown of Pearsonville, East Texas. Immediately she meets Sheriff Joel Stone, who is attracted to her, falls in love with her, but no matter how much he treats her well and helps her, she remains shy. He knows she has a secret, but he patiently waits to learn it. The characters of his brothers and their families are not well developed since apparently they were in the other two books. His character is well developed and Lucy, the child, is delightful and rather takes over in the story. Rosalyn is characterized as being good looking and a strong woman to support herself and defend herself a couple of times. This not a deep philosophical story and although it has a mystery buried in it plus some scenes of violence, the author has kept them light reading and entertaining, especially for women.

    “Bluebonnet Bride” by Caroline Clemmons was a very entertaining novel. The story opens with Rosalyn watching men build the gallows that will be used for her hanging the next day. She has been convicted of killing her abusive husband. Her only thought is for her daughter Lucy and what will happen to her. As she watches out the barred window, the weather turns deadly with a tornado hitting the town and jail and killing the sheriff. Rosalyn takes the advantage and flees to pick up her daughter.

As she watches out the barred window, the weather turns deadly with a tornado hitting the town and jail and killing the sheriff. Rosalyn takes the advantage and flees to pick up her daughter. Her old nanny and her husband are waiting with Lucy, a wagon and their belongings. They fled to the west in hopes of eluding the corrupt law enforcement in the town. Rosalyn finds a little town where she started her life anew. She starts a dressmaking business and makes friends with the people in the town. The sheriff of the town is taken with her and they begin a new life together. Can they have a chance at a new life without the threat of being found out by the law? I really enjoyed this book and the characters in it. The townspeople and the sheriff’s family were very believable. They provided a new life for Rosalyn and Lucy that they so deserved. There is a twist at the end of the story that I will not give away, but trust me when I say; you will want to read every word. I received a free PDF copy of this book in return for my honest review.

    I enjoyed thoroughly Ms. Clemmons’ latest book, Bluebonnet Bride. What a sweet story this is: full of heart, hope and love, with just enough suspense to pique and wonder, family ties to warm you, romance to make you tingle, and a satisfactory ending to make you sigh…and want to read more by this author. Ms. Clemmons does not sugarcoat life in the Old West; she makes it believable and real--and enjoyable--to the reader. I will definitely read more, especially the rest of this series, by Ms. Clemm I enjoyed thoroughly Ms. Clemmons’ latest book, Bluebonnet Bride.

    Rosalyn is convicted of her husbands murder and sentenced to hang. A tornado destroyed the jail and she escaped. Now she and her daughter Lucy live in a new town and the Sheriff is very interested in her. This is a heartwarming story with lots of problems to be overcome. I enjoyed it tremendously.

    The book has an interesting theme and the potential to be a really good story but it's too rushed. There's no build-up between action, romantic or every other situation that happens in the book.

Aside from that, everything was prety much decent, even the revealing of the antagonist was quite bad, I must say that I felt happier about finishing it thant he story itself. Some changes in the writing, execution and structure would help to imporve the story. I wouldn't recommend to read it, but if you are a fast reader and don't mind much about the writing and some gramamr mistakes then you are invited to do so.

    The story starts in January of 1873 in East Texas with Roselyn Vandagraff, mother of 7 year old Lucy, in jail sentenced to hang for poisoning her husband. Ms Caroline Clemmons has suspense, adventure, romance and several unexpected twists and violence in this story. I enjoyed my Kindle version of this book very much and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I would certainly recommend Bluebonnet Bride, but feel compelled to advise that the story contains sexual violations and miscarriages.

    There were some great things about this book. One scene I had to skip completely (honeymoon night). The overall storyline was engaging, though the "bad guys" didn't all seem to have sufficient motives for their actions. I don't know that I would necessarily recommend this book to friends, but it's possible I would have enjoyed the story more if I had read the previous books. I didn't realize I'd jumped into the middle of a serious until afterward. There were some great things about this book. One scene I had to skip completely (honeymoon night).

    My favorite of the series! It was very nice to visit the Stone family again. This story, like the other two Stone Mountain books, included the villians and suspense I have come to expect from the author. From the opening chapter Ms. Clemmons draws you in describing the sound of a tornado heading straight for the jailed heroine. The story moves along and it is never dull. I especially liked the thoughtful and sweet hero. I wish there more Stone brothers to read about!

    Great clean read This was a great clean romance set in the west. I was pleased with the clean romance yet it had a mystery that kept you going to the end. No cliffhanger which was great. There were reference to other stories but enough information was given that you did not need to read the others to keep up.
