Review: A Wagon Train Weekend (Back Inn Time #1) by Stephenia H. McGee

About the Book
It was just one night at a Victorian B&B. Until they woke up in 1857.

Collette Donaldson never should have taken her boyfriend to her cousin’s wedding. Or introduced him to her parents. After a disastrous weekend, all she wants is to get back home and sort out the mess that had once been their relationship. A heartbreaking fight, a flat tire, and an inconvenient storm force her and Seth to stay the night at a quaint bed and breakfast. But when Collette finds an antique photograph of herself, circumstances quickly shift from weird to unimaginable.

Seth Stone was ready to propose. Now he isn’t sure if he and Collette even have a relationship. People he'd never want to be his in-laws, an irritable girlfriend, and now he has to spend the night in a creepy old Victorian inn. He should have never wondered how things could possibly get worse. When they wake up stranded on a wagon train in 1857, Seth is determined to get home. But the only way to get out of the past is to face the problems stealing their future.

What an absolute delight! This story was a ton of fun and a nice change from what I've been reading lately. I love a good time travel story and this one was so well done. I've always been curious about what it would be like to go back in time, to experience history. (Just for a little while, though. I'm too fond of modern conveniences to want to stay for very long, lol.) And this book does a great job of imagining that.

A young couple struggling in their relationship are thrust back to 1857 to the Oregon Trail. They're so far out of their comfort zone, but this new adventure could be just what they need to work through their problems.

This was a quick read that I greatly enjoyed. I felt like I was there with the characters, experiencing everything right alongside them. I didn't want to say goodbye when I reached the end.

Favorite Quote:
Even if she hurt. Even if she felt discouraged, she could still trust and be thankful. A person didn’t have to be glad about God’s decision in order to trust Him. She could be both painfully disappointed her prayers hadn’t turned out like she’d wanted, and yet still trust that God had her best interest in mind.



  1. They wake up stranded on a wagon train? That's awesome! I have to read this one. :D

    1. It's quite the shock for them, but so entertaining to read about. :D
