Reviewed by Lynn Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

Too Rich For A Bride is Book Two of the Sinclair Sisters Of Cripple Creek series. Ida Sinclair has moved to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to be with her sisters Kat and Nell and to study with Mollie O’Bryan, a successful business woman. Ida learned the stock market and became a successful businesswoman in a man’s world. Things were starting to get complicated. People in the town did not feel women should be in business, and they were not making life easy for her. Two men came into her life. Colin Wagner who is a dashing lawyer meets up with Ida on the train en route to Cripple Creek. Then there is the traveling preacher, Tucker Raines. She seems to come face to face with the men everywhere she goes. Ida has to find out where her priorities lie. Is there room for love in her life? Can Ida manage to mix a career and romance together or will she give up one or the other?

I haven’t read Book One in this series; however, I feel this book stands well alone. The characters are quite charming and easy to become connected with. I feel the book is well written and has an engaging plot. It was a book that was hard to put down once I started reading. This book has strong Christian undertones but is never preachy. If you like historical romances then I feel you will enjoy this series. Look for it on the shelves at your nearest book store in May 2011.
