Nothing Short of Wondrous By Regina Scott

Kate Tremaine is a strong and tough widow, raising her young son Danny, and running a hotel in Yellowstone Park.  After the tragic sudden death of her husband she had developed the grit to deal with what came her way.  The only thing she loves more than her son is the park itself.  She ferociously guards it against anything that might harm its natural wonders and beauty

Lt. Will Prescott of the U.S. Calvary has come to patrol the park to protect it and put an end to poaching animals. He has a past he is ashamed of. Kate and Will become friends and develop deep feeling for each other.  Setting aside the personal obstacles they perceive, there is danger and complications regarding the park.

I have never had the privilege to visit Yellowstone and didn’t know much about it other than Old Faithful and bear stories. I thoroughly enjoyed all the descriptions of its beauty and uniqueness.  The dangers of the park’s natural wonders were surprising.  One can only imagine how wonderful it was in the 1800’s.  I actually went and researched it to learn more. 

The author’s vivid depiction of Kate’s Gateway Inn was delightful.  How she cared for her guests, the meals, the special touches.  *Sigh* So comforting and homey.  I guess it played at my lifelong dream to own bed and breakfast.  But seeing as how I struggle to make my own bed daily and eat no more than oatmeal for breakfast that this vision is probably not in my future!  I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

I received this book from Revell Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  The opinions stated are my own.
