Catherine Stanway cannot believe the way this day is going. It started out normally enough with her treating patients in Doc’s office. But, she never expected to be trussed like a calf and tossed into the back of a wagon and josted back there while the wagon travelled for hours.

She left her hometown to rid herself of the memories of the family she lost. Catherine can’t let her heart fall again – she won’t live through devastating another loss.

Drew Wallin is flabbergasted when he stops the wagon his brother, Levi, is driving like a nut to find that Levi had kidnaped the nurse. Sure, doc refused to come treat their mother, but kidnapping a nurse? Now, because it’s almost dark, Drew doesn’t have time to take her back to town without endangering her further.

Drew’s brothers think Catherine is going to be the perfect addition to their family. They agree that Drew should marry Catherine, but all are willing if he refuses. Drew knows he’s not husband material. A husband is to leave his family for his wife but Drew made a promise to be responsible for his family and can’t leave – what wife would be okay with that?

Hott Review:

Would-Be Wilderness Wife is absolutely going on my favorite reads list!
What I liked: I couldn’t put this book down! I fell in love with the characters immediately, Catherine and Drew are completely awesome but I also loved all of the Wallin family. The imagery and the plot of this story are more than enough to have you looking for the next Regina Scott release!!
What I didn’t like: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Author Bio:

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).

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.

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.

Lots of big things have been happening to Rose lately. She went from being an orphan to being a magician’s apprentice in what seemed like moments and she’s still trying to wrap her head around that when she’s tossed into another quandry.

A moment’s glance in a mirror causes Rose to rethink everything she’s ever believed.

Rose grew up hoping that her parents were dead – that would be the only reason she was left at the orphanage, right? – but when she sees an older version of herself in a looking glass, Rose begins to hope that she may have a family at last.

But will she be able to solve the mystery before it’s too late?

Hott Review:

What I liked: Rose and the Silver Ghost was so much fun! Even I couldn’t put it down! I really enjoyed not only the plot but the characters. It was fun and imaginative – I’ve not read anything like this before!
One of my favorite things about this is how Ms. Webb builds vocabulary. Without being preachy, she uses uncommon vocabulary and then explains it in such a way that it feels like part of the story and not a lesson.
Although this is intended for middle-graders, it’s appropriate for younger readers and many would love to have it read to them!!
What I didn’t like: The beginning of Rose and the Silver Ghost was quite confusing. I think that Ms. Webb is trying to catch us up on what happened in the other books so this can be a stand-alone read but, there is a LOT of info and it’s a bit confusing until we get into the meat of the story.
