Too Rich for a Bride - Mona Hodgson
My suggestion to the author is this... the main storyline was the growing and changing relationship between Ida and Tucker. However, my favorite part was near the end when the villain is introduced. The stock market debacle, almost-kidnapping, possible hostage situation, and the results of those events really spiked my interest and held it there. Unfortunately, the mystery wasn't introduced until the last quarter of the book, and it was over quickly. The stock market mystery could have been the main storyline right from the beginning in lieu of the romance. Writing in more mystery would require more research and would be more difficult to craft, but that should be no problem for Mona Hodgson. She is a talented writer and keeps the story moving.
I would recommend this to someone who wishes to relax, enjoy a lightweight, conservative romance over the course of a couple days. However, if you like to think through your books, this one isn't for you.
This book was a gift from the published in exchange for an honest review.
