"A Distance Too Grand" by Regina Scott -- Book Review

About the Book

Meg Pero has been assisting her photographer father since she was big enough to carry his equipment, so when he dies she is determined to take over his profession--starting with fulfilling the contract he signed to serve on an Army survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 1871. What she doesn't realize is that the leader of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry.

Captain Ben Coleridge would like nothing more than to leave without the woman who broke his heart, but he refuses to wait even one more day to get started. This survey is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team.

As dangers arise from all sides, including within the survey party, Meg and Ben must work together to stay alive, fulfill their duties, and, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.

My Thoughts

"A Distance Too Grand" is the first book in the American Wonders Collection. I enjoyed reading this book and found it to be well written. The scenery described made me feel as if I was there with the expedition. I liked Ben and Meg and enjoyed their interactions. The added mystery of Ben's secret mission and the midnight visitor added another layer and depth to the story. I hadn't read any of Regina Scott's books before, but I look forward to reading more books in American Wonders Collection and others by her.
