Shadows at Dusk by Elizabeth Goddard: Book Review

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

Montana Detective Trevor West is desperate to learn what happened to his sister, who went missing in Alaska over a year ago, leaving nothing but a few photographs as clues to her whereabouts. At the advice of Police Chief Autumn Long, Trevor enlists the help of an experienced bush pilot. If Carrie James can't help him find the places in the photographs, no one can.

But Carrie has her own agenda. Grieving the death of her closest friend and the only person she could trust, Carrie will help Trevor find his sister on one condition--that he help her track down her friend's killer.

As the two close in on the answers they crave, they'll face dangers and connections they could not have imagined. They'll have to learn to trust one another--and face the dark secrets of the past--if they are ever to discover the truth and bring a killer to justice.

Shadows at Dusk is the second book in the Missing in Alaska series. While I recommend reading the first book (because it was a great read!), I do believe this one could be read just fine as a standalone. 

There is just something about suspense stories set in Alaska, isn't there? The setting with it's more difficult travel (and sometimes spotty communication) adds that extra element of danger that makes the story all that much more compelling. As such, I find I always find this type of story entertaining. This one was no different. Right from the start of the story, I was absolutely drawn in. That didn't let up at all throughout the story and I found myself at the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. There was a lot going on in this story and I really enjoyed how the author drew it all together. There was definitely some romance to the story, which I really enjoyed, but it definitely took a backseat to the action so even those who aren't huge romance fans could probably enjoy this one too! 

If you enjoy Christian suspense, this is definitely one to check out.
