Too Rich For A Bride

She's a business woman in every sense of the word. She's capable. She's independant. She know's what she wants. And what she doesn't want. Ida Sinclair has worked her way through business school and now she is ready to launch. She travels from genteel Maine out to the wily west of Cripple Creek, Colorado where she set's about to work for the infamous, but undeniably successful businesswoman Mollie O'Bryan. But what she doesn't know is that the ways in which Miss O'Bryan get's ahead are sneakily underhanded. Will Ida come to her senses before its too late? Set in the late 1800's, the west in anything but tame and the Mining town of Cripple Creek is just the same. Woman crazed mining men living lonesome along the creek, snarling businessmen and coy underhanded men all are here. But there's the tame type too. The motherly figure of Ida's boardinghouse owner, Hattie is an example of pure tenacity, love and motherhen all mixed together. And that preacher turned businessman, Tucker Raines with eyes like silken chocolates and motives just as pure. But what about Colin Wagner, the dashing lawyer with supposedly a good head for business propositions?

Two of Ida's three sisters are also in Colorado where they have married good Christian men and set up homes of their own. However, they worry about Ida's mixed up business dealing's and give their words of caution which fall upon deaf ears.

Caught up in the world of prosperity, can Ida come to realize what is truly important in life? And can she ever find that there is room in her heart for love?

A quick and easy read, Too Rich For a Bride will definitely hold your attention right to the last page. (And I hear that this title is actual a second in a series! It really stood well on its own!)
