Title: Too Rich For a Bride
Author: Mona Hodgson
Review: This is a cute sweet Christian romance. The story took a bit to get started, but it kept up a good pace once it did. I enjoyed the sweet romantic bits and even the quoting of scriptures here and there wasn’t so bad. I'm not a huge Christian romance reader, I do enjoy Linda Howard and Nora Roberts, but if you are looking for a clean romance with a sweet story this may be the book for you.
The story is based in a mining town and around the Sinclair sisters. I think that a few items could have been cut, it did feel like it went on just a tad too long. Romance, a bit of mystery and thrill were also present, but this book is full of God and church references. If that is your thing, then you should enjoy this story.
Check it out.

Synopsis: With a head more suited to bookkeeping than a bridal veil, Ida’s dreams include big business- not beaus.
Ida Sinclair has joined her sisters, Kat and Nell, in the untamed mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado for one reason: to work for the infamous but undeniably successful businesswoman, Mollie O’Bryan. Ida’s sisters may be interested in making a match for their determined older sister, but Ida only wants to build her career.
Under Mollie's tutelage, Ida learns how to play the stock market and revels in her promising accomplishments. Fighting for respect in a man's world, her ambition leaves little room for distractions. She ignores her family's reservations about Mollie O'Bryan's business practices, but no matter how she tries, she can't ignore the two men pursuing her affections—Colin Wagner, the dashing lawyer, and Tucker Raines, the traveling preacher.
Ida wants a career more than anything else, so she shrugs off the suitors and pointed “suggestions” that young ladies don’t belong in business. Will it take unexpected love—or unexpected danger—for Ida to realize where her priorities truly lie?
