  • A fascinating story!

    Nothing Short of Wondrous by Regina Scott is the second book in American Wonders Collection. It can be read as a standalone if you have not read A Distance Too Grand. I thought Nothing Short of Wondrous was well-written with developed characters. The story moved along at a gentle pace. The author certainly did her research for this book. She painted such a vivid picture of Yellowstone National Park. I could envision the park in my mind with its numerous natural wonders along with flora and fauna. Regina Scott really made the park come alive for me. The story was intriguing. The Calvary were working with limited resources to protect such a large amount of property. It was hard to believe that people were out to destroy such beautiful animals and natural wonders (like the paint pots). I learned some interesting facts about Yellowstone National Park. This book got me curious to learn more. I liked the action that kept the story moving forward to its delightful conclusion. The romance was nicely done. I liked that it did not dominate the story. We get to see people get to know each other while enjoying each other’s company. They learn to trust each other as well as respect each other while they fell in love. Lt. William Prescott had an issue in his past that drives him to be a better man. I think it enhanced the story without adding drama to the relationship. I liked the various characters in the story. Alberta, the cook, was one of my favorites along with Kate’s curious son, Danny. I look forward to the next tale in the American Wonders Collection. Nothing Short of Wondrous has friendship, mystery, suspense, romance, action, faith, and family all woven together into one interesting tale. Nothing Short of Wondrous is a multifaceted historical novel with perilous paint pots, a curious kid, a problematic poacher, besieged bison, a chivalrous Calvary officer, and an impressive inn owner.

  • A Place Unlike Any Other!

    Join widow, Kate, and her young son who live among God’s wonders at our first national park, Yellowstone. Times were cut-throat in 1886 because the government was only allowing a certain number of businesses in the park to remain—and Kate’s hotel is one of the few. Additionally, she tries to protect the natural marvels from hotel guests who want to break off a piece as a souvenir, or who wander too close to the geysers. The government’s next inspection will determine if Kate gets to keep the hotel open with a ten-year contract, or be forced to leave the land she loves. Pressure is building from another company that will stop at nothing to push her out. Untrue rumors fly that the hotel is dirty with bed bugs, the stage that brings visitors is sabotaged, and her needed supplies are attempted to be cut-off. Kate welcomes the cavalry who are assigned to protect the park from harm, but will her relationship with Lieutenant Prescott cause the loss of her reputation and her hotel? Will the world’s few remaining buffalo, who have taken refuge in Yellowstone, be killed by poachers? The use of the natural beauty of the newly formed national park was a great backdrop for this tale. As visitors to geysers and other wonders were experienced for the first time, the advantages and challenges Kate would face during those days were very real, and made a great story. I recommend this 5-star book to those who like a clean romance mixed in with the early days of a national treasure. Revell Publishing has provided Tickmenot with a complimentary copy of, Nothing Short of Wondrous, for the purpose of review.

  • Great Historical Fiction!

    Have you ever been to Yellowstone National Park? How about Yellowstone in 1886? Author Regina Scott gives readers a view of the way this national park may have been 134 years ago and the title says it all. Even then, Yellowstone National Park was Nothing Short of Wondrous but it was in danger of being destroyed. I felt like I was there as Kate Tremaine witnessed her beloved home being threatened by poachers and vandals and I could feel her relief when the United States Calvary was sent in to protect it. One of the soldiers proves especially helpful and when her young son Danny is kidnapped by a poacher, it is Lieutenant William Prescott who does all he can to reunite this mother and son. As they feverishly work to find Danny, Kate finds herself drawn to this man who is so different than her late husband! Toby had been one to take chances, never considering the consequences. Will tended to think things through, look for possible problems, and resolve them before they grew. He appeared to be a man one could count on. The urge to do so was surprisingly strong. I enjoyed seeing Kate and Will's relationship develop and sweet little Danny added a wonderful addition to the mix. Will wasn't just attracted to Kate, he was also drawn to this little boy who needed a male figure in his life. They, and other memorable characters, along with the vivid descriptions of the beautiful forests, geysers, and endangered bison, make this a book that kept me reading to learn more! Nothing Short of Wondrous is rich in historical detail and its romance is sweet but intent. I certainly recommend this book to all who enjoy Christian historical romance. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. A favorable review was never required and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts.
