Struggling through college and balancing her summer job in Yellowstone Park with the Wylie Camping Company, Carrie McKay simply doesn't have time to consider romance. Spanish American War Veteran Sergeant Major Ramsay Stiles also isn't looking for love, busy with his own complicated affairs. But as the magic of Yellowstone starts making its way into their hearts, both begin to see love move up their priority list.

My Review

COURTING CARRIE IN WONDERLAND was an honest and heartfelt story splendidly told. It's a story where love creeps up on these characters from the start and the reader can't help but to love every minute of it. Historical and romance readers alike will love this story!

I loved every single page of this book! 
I adored these characters! I don't know how this author does it every single time, but the characters come alive so vividly and you can't help but fall in love with them. I loved the humor and sarcasm and whit. I loved the way the romance blossomed between two individuals who doubted so much about themselves and their chances with each other. I cried for them and hoped for them. I especially loved how perfectly their story ends, or begins, as it may be.

The author gives such a candid view of everything, making it all feel authentic and, at the same time, come alive. I could see the picturesque scenes from Yellowstone National Park and envision the people at work and at play there. I felt for the crazy circumstances with the wildlife, some inadvertently treated so poorly or without knowing the future consequences. The historical setting came alive with the easily visualized styles of dress and mannerisms. Now I'm hankering to go visit Yellowstone and see these wonders for myself, even though I know views are much more restricted than they were then.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Yes! This was a beautiful and endearing story from beginning to end and definitely one that I highly recommend!
