Rebecca Reviews ~ A Distance Too Grand (American Wonders Collection, #1) by Regina Scott

Paperback384 pages
Published October 1st 2019 by Revell

When a spunky photographer wrangles her way onto an 1871 survey crew of the Grand Canyon she thinks nothing can stand in her way. But her mind changes when she finds out she'll be working alongside the one man she doesn't want to fall in love with.


3.5 stars!!!

"Men don't like haggling with women, Meg . . . . Just smile and look pretty, then show them you can do the job better than any of them."

With her father's advice ringing in her ears, Meg Pero stares down Fort Wilverton's clerk and asserts herself right onto the army's survey team as the contracted photographer on an expedition along the northern rim of the Grand Canyon. Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine that the officer in charge would be someone she knew. Knows. Rather well.

When Captain Ben Coleridge steps into the middle of a rather heated discussion between a lovely young lady and one of the fort's clerks, he can scarcely believe his eyes; it's none other than Meg Pero, still as stubborn as ever, and quite alone in the world with the passing of her father. In spite of their past, Ben doesn't question Meg's abilities to document their assignment. It's just that there is more going on that he can divulge, and he is not sure how to maintain a professional distance from the woman he once petitioned to become his wife.

"Then let's follow the path and see where it leads." . . . . "Spoken like an Army engineer."

Interesting subject matter, lovely word flow, and characters who fit quite comfortably in their own skin, combine to make this historical romance both fascinating and entertaining.

Rebecca Reviews ~ Hopes Highest Mountain (Heirs of Montana #1) by Misty Beller + GIVEAWAY

Paperback, 336 pages
Published October 1st 2019 by Bethany House Publishers

On her way to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory, Ingrid Chastain never anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. When rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man, she's hesitant to trust him, but the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.


Rebecca's Review
3 STARS!!!


"God has a plan in this . . . . We need only to make sure we follow His leading."

Ingrid Chastain's plans were to accompany her father to Settler's Fort with life-saving vaccines, but when a tragic accident leaves her critically injured on the side of a Montana mountain, she suddenly has to rely on a reticent savior, a mountain man who introduces himself as none other then Dr. Micah Bradley.

Micah Bradley has been battling hopelessness and despair since losing his young wife and daughter to the ravages of small pox. Happening upon the wreckage of a supply wagon, he is able to rescue the lone survivor and transport her back to his rustic camp site.The lovely young woman has suffered much and is in no shape to travel, yet she insists that they continue across the snow-laden wilderness with the contents of a carefully wrapped crate. Their journey, and that of those they meet along the way, proves that eternal hope may be found on the highest mountains as well as the darkest valleys.

Readers will feel as if their own feet are slipping along the icy trails in this dramatic story of survival against all odds, as Micah's faith is rediscovered and strengthened through the sweet example of the one whom he declares that, "God kept you alive for me."
