Too Rich for a Bride by Mona Hodgson

I'm super behind on several reviews so I'm working on getting caught up. I've read several great books lately and this is certainly one of them!

Too 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.

  1. Too Rich for a Bride is a romantic novel written by Mona Hodgson. A western historical fiction, this is a story of a career-oriented woman named Ida Sinclair who's set her sights into conquering the male dominated world of business. She ignored suitors in the process since they are just distractions until two men came along - Colin Wagner, the dashing lawyer, and Tucker Raines, the traveling preacher.
