Get her to watch a 'watch it played' video in her own time - this worked with Brass Birmingham, as she felt like she was almost teaching me the game, pointing out things she remembered from the video. She took ownership of her own learning and I think she enjoyed that.
What's a game you enjoyed more with the 2nd time?
There are, however, games which I feel are just getting better and better and I really feel that the next play will be more enjoyable.

I think Brass Birmingham is a better game, but it's also the more complex of the two. Personally, I feel like something like **Concordia** or **The Castles of Burgundy** is a better next step before you jump into something like either of those. **Everdell** and **Viticulture** are also really good medium-weight games, but less similar to the games you mentioned.

BRASS: BIRMINGHAM Review: An Economic Whirlwind Full Of Strikingly Reimagined Gameplay And Art — GameTyrant
Flipping through the rulebook can be a bit daunting, as you’ll have to compare and contrast rules and specific reminders about networks, era-specific industry tiles, the dos-and-don’ts of consuming resources. And the visual splendor, which after you’re familiar with the mechanics really just opens up for expressive admiration, can appear cluttered and confusing at first.But, ultimately, Brass: Birmingham is pretty accessible for a Euro-style game
