A DISTANCE TOO GRAND by Regina Scott, Reviewed by Kim

I have heard some good things about this author, so I was really looking forward to reading this story. I was also very interested that it took place in the Grand Canyon, because it’s a place I’d love to see and it’s not used as a setting very often.
While I did like the writing style and, at first, I thought the story was going to keep my interest, I ended up really struggling to stay invested in the story and the characters. I felt like the pace was too slow and I found myself getting bored at times. I kept waiting for some action or movement in the story, but it never really happened.

Ben was okay, but I didn’t connect with Meg, at all. I felt like she was all about “the shot” for the majority of the story and therefore, when her feelings about Ben changed, it just didn’t ring true for me.

While this wasn’t the story for me, I’m sure that others will enjoy the beautiful setting and the slower paced storyline.

BackCover Blurb:
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.
