Audiobook Mini-Review: Alaska Twilight

11 Jun

“You hide behind your camera instead of stepping out and engaging life with both hands. You’re so afraid you’ll fail at something, you won’t even try.” 

For some people, Alaska is a breathtaking wilderness adventure, full of light and beauty. For Haley, it is a dangerous world of dark dreams and tortured memories. On the surface, she’s here to document wildlife activist Kipp Nowak’s bear encounters. But her real reason is to unearth the truth about a past murder. The suspense mounts when another body turns up, and Haley begins to wonder if the tragedies she experienced in the past are connected to the dangers and mysterious incidents of the present. 

From behind her camera, Haley observes it all, including Tank Lassiter, the wildlife biologist who has been forced to lead Kipp and his team into the Alaskan backcountry. As she watches him with his work, she feels a growing attraction. It will take great courage and faith to confront the truth she once ran away from. Before it’s over, Haley may be viewing herself from an entirely new angle. 

Alaska Twilight is the story of a young woman’s emergence from the shadows of past sorrow into the light of forgiveness and grace.

My Impressions:

To prepare for my trip to Alaska, I read fiction! Probably not the way to get the most accurate information, but I love a good story. 🙂  Alaska Twilight by Colleen Coble gave me that and more. This romantic suspense novel is action-packed and full of tension right from the start. Bear attacks, seaplane crashes, mine collapses, and stolen artifacts keep the characters hopping (and this reader guessing until the end). It was a wild ride right from the beginning and fit the wild Alaskan bush in which it was set. The characters are complex and face a number of emotional and spiritual challenges, as well as the aforementioned physical challenges. A sweet romance develops, and I cheered main characters Haley and Tank on as they grappled with their differences. Faith messages are incorporated throughout the book. There are believers and non-believers among the characters, and each faced crises of fear and doubt. Forgiveness and trust in God are strong themes.

Alaska Twilight is a good choice for fans of romantic suspense whether headed to Alaska or the back porch. Recommended.
