Cold Light of Day (Missing in Alaska, #1) by Elizabeth Goddard

Cold Light of Day (Missing in Alaska, #1)

Police Chief Autumn Long is fighting to keep her job in the quiet Alaska town of Shadow Gap when an unexpected string of criminal activity leaves her with a wounded officer, unexplained murders, and even an attack on her own father. Despite her mistrust of outsiders, she turns to Grier Brenner, a newcomer who seems to have the skills and training Autumn needs to face this threat to her community.

Grier is in Alaska for the same reason so many others are--to disappear--when Chief Long enlists his help. He emerges from the shadows and proves his mettle, but his presence in her life could be a deadly trap for them both. If his secret is exposed, all will be lost. And he's not sure even Autumn could save him.

As the stakes rise and the dangers increase, Autumn and Grier must rely on each other to extinguish the deadly threats.


Warning! If you dislike stories with non-stop action and adventure, and romantic suspense isn't your cup of tea, please don't start this book! Cold Light of Day begins with a chase amidst an Alaskan avalanche, and the danger and thrills escalate from there. Police Chief Autumn Long finds herself inundated with unsolved murders in the small town of Shadow Gap and newcomer Grier Brenner may be the answer to her prayers. But is this truly the case? Will he help her, or does he have his own secret agenda?

I've long been a fan of Elizabeth Goddard's books and this newest story is top-notch! She captured my attention with this tale of budding romance, increased criminal activity in the unique setting of Alaska, 'the last frontier', and characters that are both relatable and likable. There are twists and turns that kept me turning the pages, personal relationships begging to be explored, and an inspiring faith thread woven into the compelling plot. I thoroughly enjoyed Cold Light of Day and I can't wait to read the next book in the Missing in Alaska series!

I was given a complimentary copy from the author and Revell. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
