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? Download and start listening now!

    " 3.5 stars a clean and entertaining enough read. I wish there would have been more time spent building a relationship between the two leading characters. I always want more than a few conversations then love. Nevertheless I still liked the story and will be reading the first book in the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judith | 7/22/2010

    " This is a Christian book. It is filled with psalms,
    Bible verses, and hymns. The plot is very poorly written, without development. It is as though the author selected the psalms, verses, and hymns before writing, and then put together a story to showcase them. "
