FYI - This story was written in the time period between WW1 & WW2 when women were trying to get the vote or already had the right to vote yet while many women were still thought of or treated as just property.
Tracie Peterson weaves a good story, and she certainly does so here. With threads of conflict, intrigue, romance, mystery, and faith, the cloth has texture, color, and beauty. Alexander learns she can’t automatically assume the worst about every man and that all men aren’t like her father, but it’s a long, rough journey. If you decide to come along for the ride, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Alexandria Keegan just can’t get away from philandering, womanizing, selfish men! Her father has shown her from day one how destructive they are and she will not allow herself to be in the same position as her mother is now!
Saving her money so that she can hide her mother from her father’s promiscuous ways, Alexandra can’t help but think that marriage is a trap. But when she’s faced with the unwanted advances of an already engaged political aid and her father advises Alexandra to accept the unwanted attention, she decides men are worthless.
These greedy men are up to something and the more they try to force her into ‘knowing her place’ the more Alexandria wants to see them accountable for their actions. But will it cost Alexandria her life?
What I liked: Shadows of the Canyon was a suspense-filled ride! It was very emotional and provoking — both in religious and political context. It’s definitely not a light read!
What I didn’t like: I almost put this book down. I wanted to quit reading several times before I reached 20% of the book because I thought it was boring and I didn’t like the characters. Luckily, I kept reading!!

Series: Desert Roses Book #1
Luke has been in love with Alex for quite some time, but she only sees him as a friend. Her view of men has been affected by her father's treatment of her and she feels that all men are the same. Bundling Luke into that category is a little unfair, but Alex has to realize that on her own. One of the Winthrop party has taken a liking to Luke and he can't seem to get rid of her.
These two get into a lot of trouble. Winthrop's assistant is willing to do anything, and I mean anything, to make sure the senator gets into the White House and has no conscience. He uses anyone and everyone to accomplish that goal and eliminates anyone who gets in his way. Alex'a mother arrives on the scene and now the stakes have been raised when Alex and her mother are not only threatened by Winthrop's assistant but also by Alex's own father.
I enjoyed this book. I found Alex to be a little heartless at times when she would prejudge Luke and have no faith in him. She eventually learns the difference but what will she do about the danger surrounding herself and others at the hotel? Book 2 is called Across the Years and book 3 is called Beneath a Harvest Sky. Looking at the main characters in book 2, it appears that it doesn't have a significant connection to this book and can be read as a standalone or out of order.
It held my attention with interesting interaction between the characters, sweet romance, politics, and mystery and murder that had me feeling anxious at times! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
