Publisher's Description

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?

Endorsements

“A beautiful tale. Intriguing. Inviting. Inspiring.” — Cindy Woodsmall author of The Hope of Refuge and When the Soul Mends

“It’s always a joy to read a historical novel that isn’t afraid to let its women escape the farm. In Too Rich for a Bride, Mona Hodgson invites her readers to the reunion of the Sinclair sisters from Two Brides Too Many when she brings the smart, business-minded Ida Sinclair to Cripple Creek—Colorado’s “city of opportunity.” This is a story that lets us stand on the cusp of a great societal shift—the entrance of women into the business world. With engaging characters and an intriguing plot, Hodgson doesn’t let the important historical backdrop overshadow the heart of the story. Cripple Creek’s cast of colorful characters play host to a new romance, as well as pulling back the curtain on a local family tragedy. This sequel does more than simply tell the “next” story; it revisits the characters we’ve already come to love and creates a complementary depth to an entertaining new tale.” — Allison Pittman author of Stealing Home and The Bridegrooms

“Ida believes her future is secure in a man’s world. After all, she has drive and determination. But what happens when she meets a man who makes a withdrawal from her heart? Author Mona Hodgson makes discovering the answer to this question a rich, rewarding adventure.” — DiAnn Mills author of A Woman Called Sage and the Texas Legacy Series

Ah, a book I’ve been waiting for. Too Rich for a Bride by Mona Hodgson will charm your socks off. All the ups and downs of a romance with a delightful dose of history with characters that will sneak into your heart and take up residence. More, more, we want more.” — Lauraine Snelling author of No Distance Too Far and the Daughters of Blessing series

“Mona Hodgson has done it again. With deft storytelling and characters that leap off the page, Too Rich for a Bride is a book I won't soon forget.” — Kathleen Y’Barbo author of The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper and Anna Finch and the Hired Gun

Publisher's Weekly

Hodgson is a prolific children's book author who has also contributed to 11 books for adults. Her second 1890s western romance continues the story of the four Sinclair sisters (following Two Brides Too Many). Ida Sinclair is passionate about only one thing: succeeding in the business world. When she graduates from business school and a professor propositions her, she promptly moves away to Cripple Creek, Colo., where her sisters Kat and Nell live. Ida lands a job with business owner Mollie O'Bryan, learning how to play the stock market. Life seems pretty near perfect until Ida must choose between the town's new iceman/preacher, Tucker Raines, and Colin Wagner, a lawyer. Investing in the stock market comes easily for Ida, but not so making her heart's choice. Fun and lighthearted, Hodgson's work provides a breezy feel-good read.
