A Wagonload of Trouble

By Vickie McDonough


Someone is sabotaging the family business.

Bethany Schaffer has no desire to return to her family's guest ranch in Wyoming . But when her dad calls and asks for help, she goes anyway, only to find the ranch is in financial distress and mysterious events are putting their property and guests in danger.

Evan Parker is completely out of his element. Despite a pressing deadline, he agrees to take his niece on a two-week wagon train tour with her American history class. The deeper the group goes into the wilderness, the farther out of his comfort zone Evan finds himself. To make matters worse, the pretty gal heading up the tour thinks he's a geek extraordinaire, but he can't help his attraction to her.

As the adventure progresses, danger escalates. Can Bethany and Evan uncover the perpetrators before someone is seriously injured—or the ranch is driven into bankruptcy?

Book Takeaway:

Sometimes God asks us to do things that are out of our comfort zone, but if we are obedient, He usually sends a blessing our way.

Why the author wrote this book:

My husband and several of my sons are computer/engineer geeks. I thought I could have a lot of fun taking a computer nerd with a looming deadline and putting him some place way out of his comfort zone. In this case, on a two-week wagon train tour in the mountains of Wyoming with his niece and a bunch of other teenagers.


"A fun exciting read with a backdrop of the beautiful nature that is Wyoming. The unlikely pairing of a cowgirl and a computer geek working together is a fun refreshing read."
