From AudioFile

When Alexandra Keegan's mother is accused of murder, Alex and ranch hand Luke unravel the mystery behind the murder and discover their love for each other. Sandra Burr gives a great performance, with plenty of emotion in voice and pacing. As the romance proceeds along the usual path of Christian fiction, Burr manages to tone down the passion and warm up the morality while bringing Peterson's story to a perfect conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Combination April 16 2004
Format:Paperback
"Shadows of the Canyon" is my favorite of the Desert Roses Series. Though all of them ore good, there is a perfect blend of romance, mystery, and suspense all with a Christian twist.
One minute your heart absolutely bleeds for Alex and her situation and the next you want to shake her from exasperation. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
Tracie Peterson has a way of ending her books with nothing wanting. You never feel cheated and you always put down the book feeling completely satisfied, and yet again she does not disappoint you.

Alex Keegan was never going to marry. Why would she after seeing the way her father hurt and humiliated her mother day after day by his philandering? Nope, men could not be trusted.
Four years ago, she left her home in Williams, Arizona, to be on her own as a Harvey girl at the El Tovar Resort on the Grand Canyon. The El Tovar hosted parties for the rich, famous and powerful - the perfect place for her to make enough money to take her mother somewhere far away from her father.
Luke Toland is the cowboy in love with Alex Keegan and it cuts him clear through to his soul when she can't see past her father's infidelities to open her heart to another. When presidential candidate Senator Winthrop of SC comes to town with his beautiful, young, flirtatious daughter who has her eyes set on Luke, Luke has a difficult time convincing Alex he has no desire to take Valerie Winthrop up on her offers.
To make matters worse, Rufus Keegan, Alex's father, joins the Winthrop party and she must witness his thirst for power and position no matter what the cost. For Rufus, the cost may be his youngest daughter, Alex.
Winthrop's top aide, Joel Harper, who happens to be his daughter's fiancée, has his eye set on Alex because she presents a challenge to him. He usually has girls falling at his feet.
Alex sees him as a man like her father and wants no part of it. He also has a very unsavory past that threatens to rear its head every now and then.
With Valerie chasing Luke and her fiancée chasing Alex, Alex's perceptions of men and marriage are confirmed until Luke convinces her to look in the mirror. Just as she is doing nothing to encourage Joel he is doing nothing to encourage Valerie.
