The Grand Canyon is the backdrop for the resort where Alexandra Keegan works, in SHADOWS OF THE CANYON (3). She loves her job and her friend, Luke, but trouble is brewing. Her father is attempting to gain political favor with a visiting senator and nothing will stand in his way. Luke discovers his feelings for Alex go much deeper than friendship, yet he knows her father's infidelity has jaded her. Initially, Alex is pious and snobbish and her strength seemed to be in her verbal tongue lashings. Still, author Tracie Peterson knows how to grab readers' attention, causing their blood to boil over injustices. Fans will enjoy this first book in the Desert Roses series. (Sep., 384 pp., $11.99)
