Author(s): 

Hodgson is a master of her craft, and has written an amazing book with characters that leap off the page. Ida is strong and independent, set to prove she can be both smart and feminine. There is romance, mystery and the excitement of playing the stock market. This one’s a keeper.

Maine and Colorado, 1896: Ida Sinclair leaves Maine to join her sisters in Colorado. Her sisters want her to marry, but Ida wants to work for Mollie O’Bryan, Cripple Creek’s most famous businesswoman, and doesn’t want any distractions. That doesn’t stop two men — Collin Wagner, a brilliant lawyer and Tucker Raines, a preacher — from trying. Ida learns how to play the stock market, but when Mollie passes on false information, a few townspeople lose their life savings. Can Ida find the person responsible, and will she realize there is always time for the right kind of distractions and get rich in the love market? (WATERBROOK, May, 320 pp., $13.99)
