Cold Light of Day
by Elizabeth Goddard
February 20 - March 17, 2023 Virtual Book Tour
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.
Praise for Cold Light of Day:
DiAnn Mills, author of Concrete Evidence
"An exhilarating, page-turning race to the finish!"
Carrie Stuart Parks, bestselling author of Relative Silence
"Gripping and hard-hitting."
James R. Hannibal, award-winning author of Elysium Tide
"Elizabeth Goddard has created a novel that immerses the reader in small-town Alaska. From the first page, it's a race to stay alive and solve a number of ever-spiraling mysteries. I highly recommend this novel."
"A simmering romantic suspense with an explosive ending. Once more Goddard proves she is a master storyteller and deserving of her place as one of the best Christian romantic suspense authors of our time."
Mary Alford, author of Among the Innocent
This is an engaging novel. I was hooked early with the tension of the intriguing mystery building. Grier is nice fellow but we know there is some secret he is hiding. Autumn is a good police chief in the small Alaskan town but she has issues from her past making her a realistically flawed human trying to keep her job. The mystery builds as murders begin to happen, leading to compelling action. It seemed so hopeless near the end I read way too late as I just had to see how it ended.
I like the setting. The small town is exactly the kind of place in Alaska people might go to hide out or start a new life. That could be because of a previous crime (Hank) or a secret from which one needed to hide. I like how Goddard developed the residents of the town. They formed a tightly knit group that helped one another, especially when trouble loomed.
I highly recommend this novel. It begins with mysterious intrigue and ends with action that compels reading to the end. There are a couple of twists thrown in too. There is a subtle but good faith message and just enough hint of romance to add an emotional layer to the plot. I've read a number of Goddard's novels and this may be her best one yet.
