    Kurzbeschreibung

    Book 1 of the Desert Roses series. Working as a Harvey Girl at the luxury resort of El Tovar, located on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, Alexandra Keegan feels she is in a dream come true. But when her father's indiscretions come to light and her mother is suspected of murder, Alex finds herself the center of some unwelcome attention. Will she soon find herself alone in the world?

    Synopsis

    For women of principle, the West was difficult to live alone. Becoming a Harvey Girl, though, made things a little better as they'd be surrounded with friends and the country's wild beauty. How these women maintain their honor and even grow spiritually from their adventures?

    4.0 von 5 Sternen A Romance Peppered with Murder, Intrigue & Saving Lost Souls 29. April 2003
    Von FictionAddiction.NET - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    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.
    When Valerie approaches him after Joel has been especially cruel, he senses that something has changed. She isn't the calculating flirt she once was. She is confused and lost. Luke decides she needs God in her life and he's willing to share what he knows with her and trusts that Alex will understand why he's spending time with Valerie.
    Throughout Alex's day to day struggle with father, her confusing jealousy where Luke and Valerie are concerned and the aggravation of Joel's attentions, Alex's mother is invited by the Winthrop's to attend one of their lavish parties. Rufus Keegan is furious - not only because she is there, but also because of the reason she decided to accept the invitation and join her husband in El Tovar. When she arrives, the story takes a turn from the battles raging in Alex's head - her feelings for Luke and trying to honor God by respecting her father - to the drama playing on the rim of the Grand Canyon.
    Though set in the 1920's during the Prohibition era, Alex Keegan is a modern woman. She set out on her own to make money and to take care of her mother.
    Though there is a trace of romance and love, the story centers on Alex moving from friendship to trust. There is even a hint of mystery and a plot twist towards the end.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner! 10. November 2002
    Von J. Peterson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    I have read many of Tracie Peterson's other books, so I eagerly picked this one up. This is an interesting story about trust. If you don't your family, can you bring yourself to trust your feelings? Alex's father is a rat, basically--always throwing his infidelities in her mother's face. Seeing this has soured her on all men. Luke is her friend, and he loves her but cannot bring himself to tell her.
    THere is betrayal, murder, mystery and romance all wrapped up in 370 pages. A fast read that will have you perched on the edge of your seat. Enjoy!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen First book of a promising, exciting series as usual 7. September 2002
    Von Bonnie McKinzie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    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!!!

    2.0 von 5 Sternen This is truly fiction 26. Dezember 2007
    Von Faye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    Although the author does a fairly good job at creating the characters. The story line is to far off and contrived. It is just way to unbelievable. At one point I wanted to stop because the "cringe" factor was so high. The end was also very predictable. It was not the worst book I have read, but it was certainly not great.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Far too Contrived a story line 4. Oktober 2013
    Von TexasTracking - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I generally like historical fiction set in the American West - this time period just after WW1 should have given plenty of good deep material for an author. Sorry - there just wasn't much believable in the characters or the overly complex story line. Good descriptions of one of the great scenic wonders of North America and nice details about how the work situation of Harvey Girls. I won't be reading anything else in this series - nice try with a good premise but not a winner for this reader.
