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

Missing in Alaska #1
Romantic Suspense

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.

My Thoughts

If this opening salvo to the Missing in Alaska series is any indication of what's to come, we are in for a real treat. Cold Light of Day had me entranced from the very beginning. There's a prologue that sets the intensity level for the rest of the story. And let's just say that it's up there. 

After having read a few chapters I thought I knew how the prologue ties in to the rest of the story. But I was wrong. I hate being wrong but in this case it was a good thing. The truth was ten times better than what I had thought.

The main character is Police Chief Autumn Long and I was fascinated by her character. She has a lot of pluck about her. She's definitely one that runs towards danger rather than away. If you need someone to have your back she would be the one I would pick.

Grier Brenner is the mystery man in this tale. He arrived in the small little town of Shadow Gap just a short while ago. He came there to disappear. But when he sees someone in need of a rescue he can't help but give aid because that's just who he is.

The plot twists and turns are well written and keep the reader guessing as to the meaning and outcome right up until the very end. I'm excited to get my hands on the rest of the series. In the mean time if you haven't read anything else by Elizabeth Goddard I highly recommend any of her previous titles.
