Two Brides Too Many by Mona Hodgson

This is the first book of the series.  I started this book expecting to not like it BUT I was happily surprised to find a wonderful story of the early west.  The story never drags, it's filled with mostly good, god-fearing people with a good mix of the not so good.
I can highly recommend this book.  I look forward to read the second book in this series.

it's around the year 1915 - 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 fianc√© 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.
