This book reminded me a little of the old TV series Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. In the TV series, Dr. Michaela (known as Mike) Quinn moves from the posh world of Boston to a rough and randy frontier town in Colorado to practice medicine. The hero in Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Byron Sully (known mostly as Sully on the show), was much softer and much less wounded (figuratively and otherwise) than the hero Rafe McCay in Linda Howard’s The Touch of Fire.
In general, my criteria for whether a nonfiction book is worth reading is whether I learned at least one thing from the book that would benefit me in some way. In the case of Money Loves You, I learned several things which makes it a book I’m glad I read and one I feel comfortable recommending to others.
