Short Book Description:

I was perfectly content with my life–that is, until the pages of my story were ripped out before I had a chance to live happily ever after.

Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But the happily-ever-after life she’s planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real one. To top it off, Alice loses her beloved library job because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression.

Longing to run from small-town gossip, Alice flees to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the tiny coal-mining town of Acorn, a place with no running water, no electricity, and where the librarians ride ornery horses up steep mountain passes to deliver books. When Alice is forced to stay in Acorn far longer than she planned, she discovers that real-life adventure, mystery–and especially romance–may be far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.

My Thoughts:

When Allie gets dumped by her boyfriend and loses her job in the same week, she takes a trip that will lead to an adventure.

Allie arrives in Acorn, Kentucky, to deliver some boxes of book to the library. She meets Mack and Lillie who live in the library. She helps fake a funeral. She learns to ride a horse. She even makes some new friends.

To tell you the truth, this book did not become a favorite and a friend of mine. Yes books can become friends, especially old ones.

Wonderland Creek just didn’t really keep my attention. Although there was adventure and a little romance and mystery, all good things in a book, it just didn’t seem to click, too bad.
