Book Review of A Distance Too Grand by Regina Scott

A Distance Too Grand (American Wonders Collection, #1)

About: 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 Review: I expected to enjoy this book as a light and somewhat serious historical romance and what I found was that and more with the descriptions of the Grand Canyon, reading about the beautiful depths of the canyon was so interesting and is was as though I was there – which would be amazing – the details were written so we’ll. This did end with some sadness but much sweetness.

Rating: 4 stars,

Recommendation: 16 up for romance and slight violent mentions (can give details if wanted.)

Verse: Deuteronomy 13:4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.(King James Version.) (Not only was this verse the verse of the day, but it also fits the book and how the characters needed to grow.)

Disclaimer: I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
