As Christians, we have a responsibility to reflect the image of Christ in our lives and wrong actions can be harmful to our testimony.
IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5September 8, 2011IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Too Rich For A Bride is the second book in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series. You don't need to read the first to enjoy this one. They flow well together but can be read independently.
This book is about Ida and her quest to stay single and build her career. The book is set in the late 1800's so did feel sometimes that the story was a little ahead of itself in the character's independence.
Ida comes to town and begins working for a local businesswoman, Mollie O'Bryan. She gains respect in a man's world while also earning her own money. While she may not be looking for love, it is looking for her. With two suitors seeking her attention and some unexpected adventure she has a very busy life.
Will she choose the lawyer or the preachers? Will she keep her money or lose it? Read the book and find out!
L. Miller4 Stars Out Of 5Too Rich for a Bride by Mona HodgsonAugust 29, 2011L. MillerToo Rich for a Bride by Mona Hodgson is the follow-up novel to her Two Brides Too Many. Ida Sinclair joins her sisters in Cripple Creek, Colorado with aspirations of becoming a successful businesswoman. Thinking she has no time (or need) for men, she is surprised when two eligible bachelors begin vying for her attention.
Hodgson produces a great historical fiction. The town of Cripple Creek is interesting the men and women who live there are true characters. Mona writes each character in such a way that they seem to be real people. I also enjoyed that although this is the second novel in the series, it truly stands alone. I loved the characters of Kat and Nell and look forward to reading their story in Two Brides Too Many. My only complaint was that the romantic connections in this book seemed a bit forced. However, the rest of the book made up for it. This is a charming series and I look forward to the final installment.
I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my fair and honest review.
Laurie Kingery4 Stars Out Of 5Book 2 in the Cripple Creek SeriesJuly 9, 2011Laurie KingeryQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Today I'm reviewing TOO RICH FOR A BRIDE by Mona Hodgson, published by Waterbrook. This is the second book in the Cripple Creek series.
In the 1890's, women were expected to marry, keep a fine home, and raise children. But some women have always fought against the mold and Hodgson's heroine, Ida Sinclair, is one of those. After taking business courses, she aspires to be a successful businesswoman in the east. After a nearly disastrous false start that leaves her disillusioned about working for a man, she comes west to join her sisters in Colorado, where she lands a job with a somewhat notorious businesswoman there whose success seems based on an 1890's version of insider trading.
Tucker Raines is a former traveling preacher who must give up his ministry to take on his family's ice business when his father falls ill with TB. Tucker's father has always been harsh to him because he chose the ministry, which causes Tucker hidden pain. He is taken with Ida, but hesitant because she seems to prefer material goals over marriage and family. And then there's the too-smooth businessman wooing her.
The story of how Ida learns that love is really what is valuable in life, how she gains discernment into character, and how Tucker regains his true calling and the love and respect of his father is a tender, heartwarming story. I had not read the first book in the series, TWO BRIDES TOO MANY, but I'm thinking I need to!
This book was provided free for my review by Waterbrook Press in the Blogging for Books program.
