Cold Light of Day Review


 About the Book

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. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

I was excited to discover a new series based in Alaska! I haven't read this author before that I can recall so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. The first part of the book starts with a bang and the suspense is on. Both main characters have a lot of baggage and things to work through and the murder mystery is intriguing. I loved the setting as Alaska is such an interesting place and is perfect for a suspense novel. As the book progressed it got a bit slow for me and to be honest I ended up not fully invested. I so wanted to love this story but I just didn't. I know many other people will but it just wasn't for me. After the first few chapters it just fell a little flat. But this author is popular and many will enjoy! 

Three Stars.
