I'm just going to chime in here and add my opinion. I'm 5 foot and 140 pounds. I've owned the Giant Intrigue and didn't really like it. I'm currently on the Specialised Camber and LOVE IT. I'm now looking for my next bike as my daughter (she is 10 but has hijacked my bike and I don't think I am getting it back...) is riding the Camber. So I am on the look out for something similar to the Camber. I live in Revelstoke BC and ride mostly XS these days (so many injuries I don't go crazy fast or steep anymore).
Right now for standover the options are:
XS - Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt
XS - Trek Fuel
XS - Stumpjumper
I always prefer to women's specific bikes if possible, I love pretty bikes (not necessarily pink) and love riding hot looking bikes (who doesn't?)
Anyway, just my opinion, but equally if anyone has an opinion on what I should try (just read the posts that I should look for a Pivot Mach 5.5 so going to do that)...

Flowt in revy has (or at least had) a small al bronson available for demo. Might be worth a try since demo options are limited. My wife (5'2) loved it on the revy trails and is ordering the juliana version (roubion). She was leaning towards the shorter travel furtado until she demo'd the bronson. The orange on the furtado is amazing in person though. The demo bike does have wide handlebars on it though so just take that into consideration if you demo it.

Based on your love of the camber, why not get the new camber? They changed the name- its a Stumpjumper ST now.

It even comes in a girly color.

Specify a price range and you might get more detailed recommendations.
