NOTHING SHORT OF WONDROUS by Regina Scott, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

This book was almost as good as a real visit to Yellowstone. It was a virtual visit with vibrant descriptions and a great story of adventure in 1886. Ms. Scott wows us with the scenery and tells a wondrous tale of widowed hotel owner, Kate Tremaine and Lieutenant Will Prescott who is there to protect the park. Both are grieving and wary of new attachments. But there is much to do to patrol the area and keep up the hotel for visitors. Kate and Will strike a bargain: Kate will be guide and Will will help with repairs.
As the story unfolds, we see the vast beauty and unique landscape of the area. The characters are real and the dangers are ominous. The hero and heroine re-discover their faith and work together to guard the park from poachers. Ms. Scott writes in an easy style that showcases the grandeur of one of our nation’s treasures. And she writes romance that talks of honesty, forgiveness and repentance. 
I enjoyed the first two books and am looking forward to reading the third in this series: American Wonders Collection.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Reads Blogger Program. I was not required to give a favorable review. All opinions are my own.*I give this 5 stars. A solid faith thread. 

BackCover Blurb:
It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.

Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate's aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. As they work together to protect the park and stand firm through injustice and tragedy, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control.
