Review:  Regina Scott has done it again.  Another book you can hardly put down.  If you like action and mystery, this is the book for you.  You have two main characters:  Lieutenant Will Prescott of the US Cavalry and Kate Tremaine, owner of the Geyser Gateway, a hotel in Yellowstone National Park.  There is a lot of action where you have romance, fires, a poacher, rumors, and even a kidnapping.  As you go along in this book, you get more hooked up in it.  In the category of romance, you have Will and Kate.  Will has a past that haunts him continually.  Kate is a widow who is not interested in a relationship.  So will there be a courtship between these two?  When Kate begins to show the safest way around Yellowstone to Will, she denies what her heart is feeling.  Will is feeling guilty – will he tell her the truth?  If he does, will she not want anything to do with him?  And who gets kidnapped?  You will have to read the book to find the answers to these questions and more.  I rate this a 5-star.

Synopsis:  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.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.

Nothing Short of Wondrous, book 2 of the American Wonders Collection Book Series, became available for sale October 20, 2020.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author through her publisher for my honest review.
