Book Review: ‘Nothing Short of Wondrous’ (American Wonders Collection) by Regina Scott

About The Book:

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.

About Regina Scott

After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, and a good kick in the backside from her husband, she got serious about writing. Since then, she’s had published more than 40 clean historical romances for adults and young adults. Her traditional romances have earned praised from reviewers and readers alike. Booklist calls her work “quietly compelling” and “impeccably written.” Huntress Reviews says, “Regina Scott delivers,” and “I will always buy a book with Regina Scott’s name on it.”

Regina Scott is the author of the Frontier Bachelors series set in pioneer Seattle (The Bride Ship, Would-Be Wilderness Wife, Frontier Engagement, Instant Frontier Family, A Convenient Christmas Wedding, Mail-Order Marriage Promise, His Frontier Christmas Family, and Frontier Matchmaker Bride). She is also the author of more than two dozen sweet historical romances set in Regency England in such series as Fortune’s Brides, Uncommon Courtships, the Everard Legacy, the Master Matchmakers, and the Lady Emily Capers. She has twice been awarded best book of the year for her type of story from industry favorite RT Book Reviews.

Regina Scott has learned to fence, driven four-in-hand, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course. She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband. Find her online at her website, the blog she shares with author Marissa Doyle at, on Facebook at, and on Goodreads at

My Rating: 4 Stars!

Regina Scott paints such a magnificent picture of Yosemite in this novel, I wanted to go visit myself!
Truly, this series will cause the reader to ‘see’ the landscape and natural wonders as they are actually there. I was captivated not only by the story, which is very well done, but the beauty of the national park as seen through the eyes of the characters.

Scott includes a wonderful plot line as well, populated with equally wonderful characters. Kate and Lt. Prescott were precious together and her son Danny stole my heart. Her hotel cook, Alberta, made me hungry with those pies of hers, too! Book two in this series is not to be missed.

About Andrea Boyd
Each of Andrea Boyd’s series represents a different genre but all fall into the category of romance. All offer an element of her own brand of humor. And all are a tribute to God.

Book Review: ‘A Haven For Her Heart’ (Redemption’s Light) by Susan Anne Mason

About The Book

Homeless after being released from a women’s reformatory in 1939
Toronto, Olivia Rosetti is taken in by an angel of mercy, Ruth Bennington. The two discover they share a painful past and together decide to open a maternity home for troubled women.

Despite the success of the home, Olivia is haunted by her inhumane treatment at the reformatory and the way her newborn son was taken from her. She feels undeserving of love–until she meets businessman Darius Reed. Although his attention makes her heart soar, he can never learn of her past.
Greek widower Darius Reed is determined to protect his daughter from the prejudice that killed her mother. He’ll ensure her future by marrying a woman from a respected Toronto family. But when Darius meets Olivia, he’s immediately drawn to her beauty and compassion.

Can love prove stronger than prejudice and past mistakes? Or will Olivia’s secrets destroy any chance at a future together? 

About The Author

Susan writes both contemporary and historical Inspirational romances. She describes her writing style as “Romance sprinkled with faith” and loves themes of forgiveness and redemption!

She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and a former member of the Romance Writers of America. M

Susan lives near Toronto in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two adult children. She loves chocolate and wine and isn’t partial to snow even though she’s Canadian!

My Rating: 4 Stars!

‘Forgiveness, preached so easily from the tongue of the prison chaplain, sat hard on her unwilling spirit.’

Susan Anne Mason tackles a difficult subject with this book, based on true events when women were deemed incorrigible and thrown into prison for mistakes made. It really touched my heart, so much so that I bought a book written by one woman who endured the harshness of the punishments. This book is profound. Grittier than Mason’s previous novels, she gives us not only a good read, but something to think about in more ways than one. Redemption, grace and forgiveness play a large part here and is something we all should strive to keep active in our lives.

Olivia’s situation was heartrending and one that is difficult to read at times, but it touched my heart from the very start. The story shows us how far God will go to help His children when they feel there is no help at all left for them. Highly recommended.

Book Review: ‘When I’m With You’ (Big Prairie Romance) by Jennifer Rodewald

About The Book

He wants what he deserves, and this time he won’t walk away without it.
Meeting Daisy Hopewell shouldn’t change a thing.

Lane Carson is sick of living like a wandering homeless man. When he receives a text message from a woman claiming to be his brother’s fiancée, nothing short of meeting her will convince him his reclusive older brother has worked up the courage to talk to a woman, let alone propose. And since he’s returning to Big Prairie, he’s determined to claim the inheritance that should have been his. As long as no one expects him to live up to his brother’s impossible standards.

Daisy Hopewell has found refuge in Big Prairie working as a hired hand at the Carson Ranch—an opportunity to prove that her worth goes much deeper than being a rich man’s daughter. Her haven is shaken, however, when the boss’s brother shows up. Lane Carson is nothing like his reserved, serious brother. And Daisy knows from experience that when you add massive flirt to good-looking, the result is heartbreak.

Meeting Daisy sidetracks Lane’s plans, especially when she turns out to be irritatingly immune to his charm. But after being caught with her in a devastating flood, Lane suddenly finds himself reevaluating his approach to everything. Daisy’s stubborn determination and unflappable kindness feed his burgeoning desire to be more than a reckless, selfish man, but the last thing Lane needs is to be deemed unworthy by yet another person in his world.

Daisy is discovering a depth to Lane she hadn’t expected, and with Daisy, Lane finds himself believing he could be a better man. But by the time he figures that out, it might be too late, because she’s determined never to play the fool again.

Can Lane and Daisy release the resentment they cling to from the disappointments of their pasts and step toward the possibility of being different—better—together?

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘He was nearly certain there was nothing within himself worth finding.’

I love the Big Prairie Romance series by Jennifer Rodewald. Actually, I love anything at all written by her. This time she brings us the youngest Carson sibling, Lane’s story. Lane, who has always been so reckless, silly, flirtatious and bitter. Lane, who both loved and couldn’t stand his brother Lance because Lance has been willed the family farm when their father died. Why couldn’t he have measured up some?

Daisy Hopewell has come to stay with her Aunt Jane after a painful life lesson. She works at the Carson ranch for Lance when Lane shows up for Lance’s wedding. Right off the bat, Lane makes a particularly bad impression on Daisy.

Come along as Jennifer Rodewald once again plumbs the depths of human emotion as we discover that there is so much more to Lane than a flirty guy who never takes anything seriously and Daisy apparently can’t let go of the bitterness in her heart. Once again, I was practically glued to the book, as I always am with Rodewald’s stories. She teaches us instead of just merely entertaining us with a good story. Don’t mistake me: she tells a mighty fine story, but her readers always learn a very valuable lesson in their spiritual walk in her books.

These characters were real enough that I settled down inside this book; the story totally compelling and it flowed marvelously along. Recommended.

Book Review: ‘Point of Danger’ (Triple Threat) by Irene Hannon

About The Book

Radio talk show host Eve Reilly is used to backlash from her pot-stirring on-air commentary and interviews, but now it seems a disgruntled listener is resorting to more than angry words to express their displeasure. When a suspicious package arrives on her doorstep, Eve turns to law enforcement for help.

Police detective Brent Lange can’t find any evidence to link the string of unsettling incidents that follows, but he’s convinced they’re connected. As the harassment grows more menacing, it becomes clear someone wants Eve’s voice silenced–permanently.

But unless he can track down her foe, fast, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes–and who is swiftly winning his heart–may not survive.

‘Final warning. Shut up or die.’

Irene Hannon starts a new series with a great story that will have you trying your best to discover the culprit. Only you probably never will. I don’t. This one was a huge shocker. I love how she layers her suspense from chapter to chapter. Much like the late Mary Higgins Clark, Hannon continues to add to her stories until the reader has no idea who is the bad guy. I love it. This one is a satisfying read and I look forward to the next in the series. Recommended.

Book Review: ‘The Price of Valor’ (Global Search and Rescue) by Susan May Warren

About The Book

Former Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones thought that the love of his life was dead. But when a girl claiming to be his daughter shows up with a dire message from his wife, Ham knows he will stop at nothing to find her and bring her home.

Kidnapped by rebels while serving as an interpreter in Ukraine, Signe Kincaid has spent the past decade secreting out valuable information about Russian assets in the US to her CIA handler. Fearing for her daughter after being discovered as an operative, Signe sends her to Ham for safekeeping. She’s ready to give her life for her country, and she can hardly expect Ham to rescue her after breaking his heart over and over.

When Ham discovers the reason Signe has kept her distance, he must choose between love for his wife and love for the nation he has vowed to protect. Will he save the many? Or the few?

USA Today bestselling author Susan May Warren takes you on a global search and rescue mission where the stakes are higher than ever in this final installment of her popular series.

About Susan May Warren
Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.

Here’s my “Official” Bio.

With over 1 million books sold, critically acclaimed novelist Susan May Warren is the Christy, RITA and Carol award-winning author of over seventy-five novels with Revell, Tyndale, Barbour, Steeple Hill and Summerside Press. Known for her compelling plots and unforgettable characters, Susan has written contemporary and historical romances, romantic-suspense, thrillers, rom-com and Christmas novellas.

With books translated into eight languages, many of her novels have been ECPA and CBA bestsellers, were chosen as Top Picks by Romantic Times, and have won the RWA’s Inspirational Reader’s Choice contest and the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year award.

Of her books, Publisher’s Weekly has written, “Warren lays bare her characters’ human frailties, including fear, grief, and resentment, as openly as she details their virtues of love, devotion, and resiliency. She has crafted an engaging tale of romance, rivalry, and the power of forgiveness.”

And Library Journal adds, “Warren’s characters are well-developed and she knows how to create a first rate contemporary romance…”

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘She recognized his SEAL voice–cool, detached, the one that got business done.’

Sometimes you read a book and you are just completely stumped as to how to write a review worthy of said book. This was such a book. Truthfully, all Susan May Warren’s books are much the same. I come away from them changed and not wanting to pick up another book until I’ve digested this one because it remains in my heart, vibrant and alive, long after the last page is turned.

‘Forgiveness is the currency of heaven.’

Warren brings us the third book in her Global Search and Rescue series with Hamilton Jones’ story, the founder of the group. It can be read as a stand alone, but to really experience it, you truly should read the series. Ham’s determined to find his wife Signe after she left ten years earlier. Now he is father to a ten year old daughter he didn’t know he had. Signe is CIA and determined to not be found. Ham has never stopped loving her and will not let anything stand in his way of finding her Thus begins a story that will move you to the core of your being. Both Ham and Signe were hurt tremendously as children and formed a deep bond as they cared for each other. Now, they must once again help each other and they try to overcome all that has passed and find their peace. Ham is a man of action, a man who pushes right ahead to rescue and save those he loves. Signe, too, has great strength of character and resiliency.

”He didn’t do ‘sit around and wait’ easily. Not when someone he loved needed him.’

Susan May Warren writes with such such depth of heart that my own heart is left incredibly moved and deeply impacted by her words. The spiritual themes here pack a giant wallop and left me in tears many times during the reading. I truly do not have adequate words to describe how powerful this book was. My heart is just too full. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘Love isn’t stable in our world. It’s not something you can count on, and when you do have it, it’s used against you.’

Jenny B. Jones gives us the final novel in her Katie Parker Productions series and it’s sooo worth the wait. I have loved Katie since she showed up in the little town of In Between as a foster child in her teens, mad at the world. I’ve hurt for her, cried for her and rooted for her in each book. And what can I say about Charlie Benson? He is a precious hero, strong, loving and totally gets Katie. These two have wound themselves around my heart. But wait! What about Mad Maxine, Katie’s grandmother? She absolutely is a treasure. I have hooted with laughter so much at Maxine’s antics till my stomach hurt. I wouldn’t mind having a grandmother like her myself. Minus the famous stake outs, of course. You’ll have to read the books to figure that one out. Then there’s James and Millie, two people who were willing to take on such an angry young teen, then loved her with all their hearts.

Jenny B. Jones is so good in this series. Actually, in everything she writes. I am a forever fan. She excels here, though. It’s been a long haul, but they finally get their happy ending and Jones does it well indeed. Why, I ugly cried through the last few chapters. I highly recommend this series. Note: you must read them in order. They are not stand alones.
