Montana Detective Trevor West is desperate to learn what happened to his sister, who went missing in Alaska over a year ago, leaving nothing but a few photographs as clues to her whereabouts. At the advice of Police Chief Autumn Long, Trevor enlists the help of an experienced bush pilot. If Carrie James can't help him find the places in the photographs, no one can.

But Carrie has her own agenda. Grieving the death of her closest friend and the only person she could trust, Carrie will help Trevor find his sister on one condition--that he help her track down her friend's killer.

As the two close in on the answers they crave, they'll face dangers and connections they could not have imagined. They'll have to learn to trust one another--and face the dark secrets of the past--if they are ever to discover the truth and bring a killer to justice.

My Thoughts 

Shadows at Dusk is the second book in the Missing in Alaska series and here we meet Trevor West who is in search of his missing sister. In the process he meets Carrie James who is a bush pilot willing to help him. She agrees to do this only if he will help her track down the man who murdered her close friend. 

Not sure if it was my reading mood but I hate to admit that this was not my favorite Elizabeth Goddard book. It was hard to get into the book. I found it a bit slow in parts. There were suspenseful parts but I feel like it took a bit long to get there. I also felt like the romance between Trevor and Carrie moved a bit fast for the circumstances that they were under. 

I will say that was plenty of adventure and action throughout the story and it was nice to see characters from the previous book in this one. 

If you enjoy action packed storylines then this may just be the series for you!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
