A Deep Divide


About the Book

 After being kidnapped as a child, heiress Emma Grace McMurray has seen firsthand the devastation that greed causes in the world, and she wants nothing to do with it--including her father's offering her hand in a business deal. She sneaks away to be a Harvey Girl at the El Tovar Grand Canyon Hotel, planning to stay hidden even if it means always looking over her shoulder.

Ray Watkins arrives at the hotel wanting to impress his father by finding success on his own. Then maybe he can take on more of the family business and do something good with the profits.

Ray immediately admires Emma Grace, and though a friendship forms, she's afraid he's just like every other wealthy man she's known. Then art and jewels go missing from El Tovar and the nearby Hopi House, a mystery that pulls them in and stirs up their worst fears. When shocking revelations come to light, they'll have to question all they thought to be true. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts


The Grand Canyon is one of the most beautiful places I have been so a book in that setting is wonderful. I loved the history that is in this story and I had to do some research after finishing the last chapter because I wanted to know more! 

I enjoyed this book. The first few pages really start off with a bang and get you fully engaged in the story. I loved Emma Grace's character and I am hopeful she shows up later in the series. With Ray I had a difficult time really getting to know his character, so he isn't my favorite. This book had a nice twist near the end that I enjoyed. There is a bit of a mystery element that carries the story that really added to making this book enjoyable. 

I recommend to those that enjoy history or are just looking for a fun quick read. 

Four stars.
