Alaskan Avalanche Escape (K-9 Search and Rescue, #9) by Darlene L. Turner

Alaskan Avalanche Escape

Sabotage in the mountains…

Can this K-9 sniff out the truth?

After surviving a sudden avalanche, mountain survival expert Jayla Hoyt and her search-and-rescue K-9 discover that it was no accident—someone deliberately triggered the mountain explosion. To uncover the culprit, she’ll have to partner with Alaska park ranger Bryson Clarke, a man she doesn’t trust. But when the investigators become targets, can they capture the criminal mastermind…before they’re buried alive?

From Love Inspired Suspense: Courage. Danger. Faith.

K-9 Search and Rescue

Book 1: Desert Rescue by Lisa Phillips
Book 2: Trailing a Killer by Carol J. Post
Book 3: Mountain Survival by Christy Barritt
Book 4: Search and Defend by Heather Woodhaven
Book 5: Following the Trail by Lynette Eason
Book 6: Dangerous Mountain Rescue by Christy Barritt
Book 7: Wilderness Hunt by Lisa Phillips
Book 8: Alaskan Mountain Search by Sarah Varland
Book 9: Alaskan Avalanche Escape by Darlene L. Turner


This book begins with a terrifying scene and the action never lets up! I was immediately caught up in the activities of a K-9 search and rescue team's efforts to determine why so many avalanches are occurring along a mountain pass that stretches from the Yukon into Alaska. Is it the work of an overactive Mother Nature, or could there be evil behind these catastrophes?

I love this author's great storytelling abilities and this book is the perfect example. Alaskan Avalanche Escape is an exciting adventure that kept me turning the pages to find the answers! There are twists, turns, and many surprises but I especially enjoyed the intriguing characters. Darlene L. Turner slowly peels back the layers to display their strengths and weaknesses. Jayla Hoyt is a mountain survival expert who has painful secrets from her past and major trust issues with Alaskan Park Ranger Bryson Clarke, but there's no doubt of her love and devotion for her K-9 partner, Hercules! Can Jayla and Bryson overcome their differences? Will the threats on their lives help them discover the power of faith and trust?

This is a captivating story. I recommend Alaskan Avalanche Escape to all who enjoy romantic Christian suspense.

I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review, and I am voluntarily sharing my thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Darlene L. Turner’s love of suspense began when she read her first Nancy Drew book. She’s turned that passion into her writing and believes readers will be captured by her plots, inspired by her strong characters, and moved by her inspirational message. 

Darlene won the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense twice and an ACFW Genesis award. She’s represented by Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency. Her debut book, Border Breach, released in April, 2020 with Love Inspired Suspense. She has two books releasing in 2021: Abducted in Alaska (March) and Lethal Cover-Up (August).

Darlene met her husband Jeff at the turtle races in Ontario, Canada. She loves flavored coffee and plaid shirts. You can connect with Darlene at www.darlenelturner.com where there’s suspense beyond borders
