10 K-Dramas With The “Rich/Poor” Trope That Are Actually Good
Jun 30, Brenda rated it really liked it. This book althought being historically interesting and the characters were good seemed to be a little slow for me. I didn't want to not finish it slow, but there was something missing and I'm not sure what it was. The ending was somewhat predictable although there were some surprises which helped me finish the last fourth of the book faster that the first part. It may have been me, I was in a position where I had to keep putting it down and picking it back up. So I'm giving it 3 stars. I liked i This book althought being historically interesting and the characters were good seemed to be a little slow for me.
I liked it, but didn't put my tv, computer, sleep, etc. I see how the newest beginnings of stock purchases and a stock exchange back when they were still mining, taught me why there were laws in place in latter years for those who had insider information could hurt others and so there are very stringent laws in place. There was quite a bit in history that the author had to do some research and quite a bit is included in the book.
I liked it Three stars worth. Will it take unexpected love—or unexpected danger—for Ida to realize where her priorities truly lie Apr 24, Laura rated it liked it. Ida is a very strong heroine. In the days before womens lib, Ida bucked the system. I found the story a bit predictable, as in I knew where it was going and who the hero would be.
I had no surprises. Fans of Ms. The town it was set in sounds charming. Jul 07, Laura rated it really liked it. Ida soon thrives but finds herself balancing her ethics with her ambition. Can two ambitious entrepreneurs find time for love? I am a character-driven reader, and this book is full of unique characters whose stories need to be shared.

Ida is a strong, fierce woman who strives for something more than is expected of her. Even though women today are equal to men in the workforce, female readers will identify with the need Ida has to prove herself and her worth to those she loves. The minor characters are intriguing. Abraham, the young boy who always has a joke, adds a layer of humor to the story. Otis, an African-American, faces some discrimination as he serves as a faithful employee to Tucker.
His story could stand alone in a book. I did not read the first book in the series, but I did not feel lost in this book. I do plan to check out the first book, and I hope Mona writes more about the characters in this small town. Overall, I thought it was a fantastic story with wonderful characters and a strong plot that sparks discussion.
Too Rich for a Bride would be a great book club read. I was given this book free of charge by the publisher. My thoughts and opinions Apr 26, Heather rated it liked it Shelves: christian-fiction.

This appears to be the second in a series of books about the Sinclair sisters. I definitely plan on reading the others. On a more meaningful level, I could relate to one of the main premises of the book: I really enjoyed this book. On a more meaningful level, I could relate to one of the main premises of the book: the struggle of priorities as a woman, between ambition and relationships.
My mother was one of three women to graduated in business from her university in The first day of one of her business classes, she walked in and the professor said, "Miss, the typing class is down the hall. She went on to have a successful career as a businesswoman.
This is the woman who raised me, who taught me that I could do anything and be anything I wanted. But all that being said, after I was born, she gave up all of that success to be a stay-at-home mom to me and my two younger siblings that followed. And so, years later, when I found myself about to graduate from my undergrad with acceptances to two of the best graduate programs in the country I chose love over ambition.
I've never regretted it for even a moment. As I said then, I'm not giving up dreams, I'm choosing some dreams over others for the time being. Someday, I'll go back to school. But I'll do it knowing I have everything that really matters, because I chose that first. I love books that relate to topics I feel passionately about. Feb 28, Kristen rated it it was ok Shelves: christian-fiction. I really wanted to like this book when I picked it up and I suppose overall I did, but I think that's just because it had a decent ending.
I kept waiting for the plot to pick up and really grab my interest but it didn't really happen until almost the very end. I didn't find Ida all that relateable or really very likable. I cared more about Tucker and his story than I did the actual love story in the book. From the description, it sounded like Ida was going to have opposition at every turn and re I really wanted to like this book when I picked it up and I suppose overall I did, but I think that's just because it had a decent ending.
From the description, it sounded like Ida was going to have opposition at every turn and really have to struggle to succeed, but she really didn't. I mean, the opposition was there sort of, but it wasn't actually problematic until the end. I also felt like the love story was a little rushed. Basically the whole book they're both saying they aren't looking for love and don't really want to give the other one the chance and then all of a sudden they're in love. No in between stage.
There were there meetings here and there, of course, but I felt like they realized their love a bit early. I would have liked to see it stem from more than 4 or 5 encounters and brief conversations. Overall, I liked the plot, I just thought the characters could have used a bit more development and Ida could have used a few more obstacles to be more realistic. But I did appreciate that the Christian aspect of it was accurate and felt real. Jun 22, Renee rated it liked it. I'm as big a fan of the western romance as the next girl but it all gets repetitive sometimes.
While the setting, a mining town in Colorado, is kind of humdrum the characters are not. I loved that our hero, Tucker Raines, was a traveling preacher turned ice man. You might expect a preacher to pop up in a Christian romance but not a pervayor of ice and ice boxes. That said, the romance felt a bit cold no pun intend I'm as big a fan of the western romance as the next girl but it all gets repetitive sometimes. That said, the romance felt a bit cold no pun intended and I remained disconnected throughout.
Although each of the characters were complex and flawed, which I loved, the romance did not work for me. The little that we saw of Ida's sisters and their husbands left me wanting to know what happened next in their lives rather than what would happen between Ida and her beaus. Towards the end of the book the man whom Ida chose even admitted that they didn't get to spend much time together which led the conclusion to feel a bit forced.
If there is going to be another book in this series I really hope that Ms. Hodgson puts more of Ida and her husband into the story because they are great characters. Apr 30, Heidi rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads. I was fortunate enough to win this book as a Goodreads giveaway and I absolutely loved this book!! The setting and time period was such a fantastic thing to experience with Ida Sinclair and her sisters. I think the proper way people acted and the minimal living was really refreshing.
I enjoyed that Ida Sinclair, and her sisters to an extent, broke away from the "way a woman should act" during that time. I'm happy Ida got her start with Molly but am even happier when she realized that even though I was fortunate enough to win this book as a Goodreads giveaway and I absolutely loved this book!! I'm happy Ida got her start with Molly but am even happier when she realized that even though she was a woman in business, she didn't have to be dishonest to get ahead.
I really enjoyed that her and Tucker found love even though they weren't looking for it. I was also happy to see that just because she was married, she still worked and retained what she worked so hard for I think what would have made this fantastic story even better would be if we saw the birth of the baby and knew that everything worked out fine since there was the fear of dying in child birth. I would also have liked to see her other sister expecting a baby of her own. It was a fantastic story; one that I was sad to see end.
I will definitely be looking for more novels from Mona Hodgson. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this fantastic novel. Ida Sinclair has big dreams of making it big in business. Yet Ida is determined and focused until she meets Tucker Raines who puts an unexpected kink in her well laid plans Ida Sinclair has big dreams of making it big in business.
Yet Ida is determined and focused until she meets Tucker Raines who puts an unexpected kink in her well laid plans.
This is an easy, quick read. Tucker Raines was the character that kept this story moving. It was his struggles that I connected and felt more with. His loyalty to family and friends and his determination to help his father even when his father hurt and reviled him, made him heroic to me.
This book okay but for sure won't be ranked among my favorites. It just came off a bit weak to me. This is a Christian historical fiction book which I received from Blogging for Books. It is free from language and sexual content.
Jun 04, Ellen rated it it was ok Shelves: gentlereads. I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. This is the second book of the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series. Not having read the first book, I caught onto the premise of the series easily. This book is about the oldest sister, Ida, and her plans to be financially independent by becoming a stenographer. Can Ida make it in the growing town of Cripple Creek? Will she resist the attraction she feels for two men who are pursuing her affections? Can she justify her employer's business practices? You can figure it out yourself by page Classified as Christian historical fiction, I was surprised that Bible passages were referenced but not quoted.
The religious references were mostly limited to the last half of the book, and were not overwhelming for those who may not have the same beliefs. The biggest problem for me was that the characters are one dimensional, and the storyline completely predictable. I haven't read a book in this genre since I was fifteen, so I must admit, I found it rather simplistic.
Apr 05, Elizabeth rated it liked it. Ida is the oldest of the Sinclair sisters. And while Ida is not looking for a husband, love seems to be hunting her none the less. I very much enjoyed this story. Even though I haven't read the first book, I believe this story can stand on it's own. That said it did take me some time to get in to this story. It was enjoyable but took a while to get going. And having not known the characters from the previous book, I felt like I was trying to play catch-up. I love the character of Tucker Raines. I also have found a love of fiction set in Colorado.

The two form an adorable bond and Min Hyuk realizes that his feelings for her go beyond that of an employer-employee relationship. The story is also pretty unique as it involves a girl with super strength who fights bad guys while protecting her weak boyfriend. Although it seems like a superficial storyline, this K-drama really does tug at the heartstrings! The two meet and it seems as though Eun Tak is more intrigued by the fact that Shin lives in a mansion and has endless amounts of money.
The two embark on an emotional and adventurous relationship where they must figure out where their destiny together lies. There are various instances throughout the series where Eun Tak makes jokes about wanting Shin to give her some money, and as superficial as it may seem, it comes off as being adorably endearing. Lee Ji Yi played Lim Ji Yeon , a poor girl who was very realistic about the world she lived in and her relationships. The two meet in Cuba and start to develop strong feelings for each other, but when they discover that Jin Hyeok works for Soo Hyun in Seoul, it makes for an awkward relationship.
With the pressures of social class and media, Soo Hyun and Jin Hyeok are forced to face various obstacles in their relationship and their feelings for each other are put to the test. One of the main reasons why I like this series is because the rich main lead is actually not male. While K-drama tropes tend to favor the male being the rich one and the female being the poor one who takes on odd jobs, this specific drama deals with the female lead being wealthy.
