Blog Tour - Courting Carrie in Wonderland


About the book: Struggling through college and balancing her summer job with the Wylie Camping Company, Carrie simply doesn’t have time to consider romance. War Veteran Sergeant Ned Ramsey isn’t looking for love either, 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: Carla Kelly really has a way with writing a great romance story! I also really like the way she includes history in her romance story. 

I really enjoyed the love story in this book. Ramsey is in the army, stationed in Yellowstone Park aka Wonderland. I thought it was really funny the way that Ramsey was ordered by his superiors to find a wife. And he thought there was no way that could ever happen. He's in the army remember, and his assignment in Yellowstone Park is to talk with everyone in the park, both workers and visitors and make sure that everyone is happy. All. The. Time. Wow. Now he can pass on the hardest assignments to his superiors if he needs to, but his job is really full and busy. I really love his love for animals, and the way he sees things needing to change to be better for the animals in the park. No more handouts for the bears or trying to kill the wolves would be his highest ideals. 

Then there's Carrie. She's working as a pie maker in the Wylie Camping Company, just as she does every summer. She's trying to pay her own way through school and she needs every penny she can make from her salary to her tips. I loved Carrie. I loved the way she had risen over her circumstances and was working hard to make her life better. But she's never down or grumpy, she always takes her circumstances as they are and is just happy about life.

I loved the twists and turns that brought these two together. I loved the way they met! Carrie hanging out in the outhouse waiting for a bear to leave. She doesn't realize he already has and is calling out to whoever is outside to answer her. Ramsey comes upon the scene, not realizing there had been a bear! It's just a really funny scene.

This is a cute, clean story that I really enjoyed reading! I love Carla Kelly's books!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
