A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Cold Light of Day by Elizabeth Goddard: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

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 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 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.

Elizabeth Goddard is one of those authors that when I say her name on a cover, I know I am in for a good read that will keep me on the edge of my seat with suspense... Cold Light of Day certainly lived up to that expectation. Right from the start, this book drew me in and had me reading on to discover what was going to happen next, and try to figure out all the answers. And just when I thought that perhaps I had it figured out, something new would be discovered that kept me guessing... and I enjoyed every minute of it. 

A suspense novel set in Alaska certainly adds another level of suspense, knowing that help was not always quite so easy to come by as it might be elsewhere. I felt like this story really depicted that well. This is the first book in the new Missing in Alaska series, and it certainly has me looking forward to more in the series. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
