A Distance Too Grand, by Regina Scott, is the first in her American Wonders Collection. A thick volume, it was easy to get into and Meg was a wonderful character. I loved her spunk. It was fun to watch her pursue her dreams and not let anyone or anything get in her way. When she's reunited with Ben, an old flame, she is able to keep her sense and doesn't crumble at the sight of him. He is taken aback at seeing her again and soon all of those old feelings return for both. This is a sweet historical romance with the Grand Canyon as the setting. The cook was another favorite character. I liked the bit of mystery. It's a clean read and a relaxing one. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

From the back cover:
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, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.
