Mona Hodgson's second book in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek, "Too Rich for a Bride," is a great historical fiction novel that you will not want to miss out on reading!
Ida has moved to Cripple Creek to prove to herself and others that women can make it in the business world and it can be done without making promises to men. Two of Ida's sisters already live there and so Ida is thrilled to be near them. However, her sisters and brothers-in-law have reservations about Mollie O'Bryan, Ida's employer. Mollie and Ida are very successful in what they do, but is it wrong how they gain their information in regards to what stocks to invest in? Ida has no room in her life for men, but yet she seems to continually have contact with a very successful lawyer, Colin, and Tucker, a traveling preacher who is in back in town to run his ailing father's business. Both men have secrets, yet which will harm Ida and who does she lose her heart to?
Hodgson has a style of writing that is very easy to follow and it pulls the reader right into the story through the vivid images and descriptions. The characters are lovable and real. I have not read the first book, but I am going to find it and read about Nell and Kat. There are family dynamics throughout this book, along with romance, heartache, healing, and growth - everything that makes for a great read! Be sure this is on your summer reading list!
