To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

Cold Light of Day by Elizabeth Goddard Book Tour!

February 20 - March 17, 2023 Virtual Book Tour

Cold Light of Day by Elizabeth Goddard

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.

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."

Cara Putman, award-winning author of Flight Risk and Lethal Intent

"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."

My Thoughts

Cold Light of Day by Elizabeth Goddard is the first in a series Missing In Alaska #1. The story takes place in Alaska and features Police Chief Autumn Long, who is the police chief after her father was injured on the job. There are a couple people on the city council that want her gone from the position. So there is some animosity within the department.

Autumn is finding out how hard the job is when a rash of criminal activities leaves her with an injured officer among other things. She is worried about her father as he tends to drink a bit more than he should. He is upset because he had to retire and misses his dead wife. When Autumn's mother drowned while they were on vacation in the Caribbean, she finds herself carrying around guilt. Lots of what if's. After the death of her mother, her father moves them, Autumn and her brother Nolan who is an Alaskan State Trooper.

Grier Brenner, a man of many talents and offers them to Autumn to try to solve a series of murders. He is in Alaska as he is trying to disappear and whenever Autumn asks him about his past he is very elusive. 

Stakes get higher and it is up to Autumn to try to solve the murders that are happening, more bodies are found and now a stranger is in town, no one knows who he is but Autumn thinks that he is following her. What could the reason be?

The story is descriptive in that it describes the Alaskan frontier, and life in the relatively small town, as the story goes on the reader learns more about Autumn, Grier, and the people that are after them both. To describe more would be a spoiler alert. 

I enjoyed the story, the pace, and the plot were important to make the story a success, personal relationships were very well developed and then there is the romantic side of the story. I would like very much to read more in this series. I give it 5 stars!

I received a copy of the book for review purposes only.
