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.

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.

Tracie Peterson has done it one more time! Alex is a Harvey Girl in Arizona, a fine Christian young woman who cannot trust men, believing they are all like her womanizing, despicable father. Politics are present even in Christian fictions written around 1925, and this book presents politics as an ugly, dog eat dog situation. Alex has as her goal to work just long enough to get her mother safely away from her cheating father but Luke Toland first must be reckoned with. You will love Alex, admire Luke, pity her mom, scowl at her dad and the senator and positively hate Joel (the scoundrel).. A suspicious death brings tremendous intrigue into the story. I could barely put down the book. I will watch amazon carefully for signs of book 2. Way to go, Tracie!!!

She trusts no man in the area of sex, romance or love. Of course, she has yet to figure out what the difference is between sex and love. She knows Luke is important as her best friend, but she ignores the tugging on her heart. In the meantime, a wicked political game is being played out at the resort where she works as a Harvey girl. Her mother becomes involved and there is a tragic incident. This is a wondrous tale of seeking transformation and new life, but in the search, one must first face the darkness of those who would do evil. Great Read! Tracie P., we want more!
