About the Book
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.
Other Books in the Series
In My Opinion
Shadows At Dusk by Elizabeth Goddard is the second book in her Missing in Alaska series, but can 100% be read as a standalone.
This book starts out with a huge bang in the prologue and some of Carrie’s backstory (and wow, that event has most definitely shaped who she is in the present). By the time Trevor arrives on the scene, you will be rooting for him to reach Carrie.
This is a romantic suspense with lots of twists and turns, but those keep the story moving at a great pace. And of all the romantic suspense books set in Alaska, this series has become one of my favorites as the gorgeous setting becomes another character in the book.
I also appreciated that the characters acknowledge the high-stress, intense days they’ve spent together and how those aren’t necessarily a good foundation for a relationship. This is always something that slightly bothers me with romantic suspense stories where the characters have no history with each other.
Goddard’s stories are just getting better with each release, and I highly recommend Shadows at Dusk.
