The Wonder of You

Modern Alice in Wonderland Re-telling

About The Book:

What if Alice didn’t fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, traveled through 

Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:

New York City.

The best day of twenty-five year old Alice Leighton’s life was the day she got to put her nothing special, lil Southern town in her rear-view mirror. Good-bye to phony ‘bless your hearts’ and ‘I’ll pray for you’ crap, all while talking trash behind her back. She’s New York City’s latest addition and she’s going to work her ass off proving she earned her spot in the country’s top grad program.

Never again will she let some jerk derail her future and break her heart. Oh, and no more players. She’s D.O.N.E with the ‘cool guys’. 

Getting caught up in Dare Grangeworth, the art world’s resident bad boy, was not part of her Alice 2.0 plan, even if he is just her type, with his beard, tats sleeves and intense green eyes. When he’s not dodging the press or his cultish fan base, Dare’s making art that makes a statement. Women seem to lose their heads around him – all the more reason why he finds Alice’s candor refreshing. He’s used to women giving in – not giving attitude.

He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, he becomes more than a simple outlier she can explain away. And for him everything starts to feel larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, all while desperately trying not to lose his heart. 

Become lost and found in this re-imagined story of Alice and her cast of characters, in a world where Wonderland meets Sex-and-the-City.

My Review:

The Wonder of You (A Different Kind of Wonderland, # 1)The Wonder of You by Harper Kincaid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Wonder of You by Harper Kincaid is the first book in her brand new series, A Different Kind of Wonderland . A modern day take on Alice in Wonderland.

We first meet our Southern Belle, Alice, bent over in a cab gathering her belongings getting ready to move in to her sisters apartment. She is basically heckled by the next customer in line for the cab. When she gives him as much crap as he gives her, still bent over gathering things from said cab, she is surprised, once she backs out and bumps into him, to find him not only tall and muscled, but absolutely gorgeous.

Dare has never had anyone put him in his place quite as well as the mystery cab lady does. Her parting words sit badly with him though. He doesn't like thinking that what she said about him may just be the absolute truth. Ready to try and put it out of his mind he discovers she left behind a treasure trove of secrets for him to discover by way of her handbag, filled to the brim with textbooks, notebooks, and a vibrator???

Told in dual POV, these unlikely characters literally sizzled on the page. Dare is a famous New York artist and Alice is a grad student studying Clinical Psychology and Human Sexuality. Well written and well paced I really just devoured this story. The Chapter headers with well-placed quotes from Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland were great! Enjoy!

About The Author:

Born in California and raised in South Florida, Harper Kincaid has moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on her head ever since. For years, she was a jill of all trades and a master of none, but is now tickled hot pink to pen stories that break and mend people's hearts for a living. Kincaid believes seduction occurs from the neck up, which is why her characters are smart, sexy, and slightly quirky - and definitely worthy to be your next hard-core book crush.

When not writing, she adores listening to indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl,  the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds), and making those close to her laugh 'til they snort. She is a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but has now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia.
