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. He can't afford to be distracted during this survey, which is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team.

As dangers arise from all sides--and even from within--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: 
This story was one I really enjoyed. It was like a therapy listening to it on Audible. I know that may seem strange to say, but when you are reading and listening to the descriptions that Regina Scott is writing about for the Grand Canon, you can't help but slip away in your mind to these beautiful vistas and picture yourself looking out on to the majesty of this wonder.

Regina Scott is an author who has a talent for writing sweet romance stories that just bring you in to it. Her characters and their stories have such a real feel to them. Meg and Ben have a history. This history affects their decisions in the story, but they are also ones, who know how to work through the past and find away to work together. They learn who they are on this journey and in the process learn more about each other and how the ideas they had in the past, really were not their own doing. It's a story of how when young, you get idea, you get scared, and unfortunately you make decisions on not the whole story. But this book offers a fun look at a 2nd chance.

Ben is a straight shooter, a man graduated from West Point. Has lived the military life with his dad. He knows what is expected of him. He knows his job. Meg is a girl who knows how to be a free spirit. She wandered around the country with her dad taking pictures. She loves the freedom. However, with her dad gone now, she now has the sole responsibility of his company, and with that must find away to provide for herself.

Ben and Meg are joined with a fun cast of characters on their adventure. Each so different, but all working well together.

This story was a fabulous escape. When I was in a repetitive task, it was a book I loved to listen to and help me get away.

If you are looking into a sweet, adventure, romance...this is the story for you.
