Shadows at Dusk by Elisabeth Goddard was equal parts suspenseful and emotional!
The prologue was very gutting, and I had almost wondered if the story was over for Carrie until I realized she wasn’t the sister Trevor was searching for in Chapter One. Guess that shows how invested I was when opening the book without reading the blurb. The cover and title were intriguing enough to give this story a shot.
Alright, let’s go to the meat of the story. This puzzle had just the right amount of pieces; I appreciate a good mystery and held very little hope that Trevor’s sister was alive. The action sequences were smoothly written, and I enjoyed how Carrie and Trevor slowly came to care for each other.
I had a few good laughs, especially when Carrie ran from the store at their first stop while searching for his sister’s whereabouts. This was sooo not my version of island hopping, but I learned a lot about Alaska and have added it to my list of places to visit. The beautiful scenery sometimes became deadly and added a natural level of organic tension. Fire, explosions, and a plane crash round off the action in the story.
Thank you, NetGalley and the publisher, for giving me an ARC copy of this book to read and review. All of these thoughts and comments are my own.
