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.

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.”

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.”

Mary Alford, author of Among the Innocent

Review by Coffee&Ink

I love stories with remote, hard-to-get-to settings, and the author does a wonderful job of evoking small town Alaska. Shadow Gap’s interim Chief of Police, stepping in for her father, attends a number of seemingly unrelated events in her jurisdiction. The story’s told in alternating viewpoints between Autumn and Grier, a stranger in town who keeps himself to himself until a woman needs rescuing from the cold sea.

This is a very good rural police procedural with a thread of romance underneath the main plot. Page turning, edge-of-your-seat action that doesn’t stop until the very last page. Interesting full bodied characters and setting. Highly recommended for mystery and suspense lovers.

I’m really looking forward to the next in this series!
