 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.

Fast paced with twists that  keep readers on the edge of their seats, this book will stay with you long after the last page is read. I loved how Carrie has survived betrayal from a man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. I can’t imagine being thrown out of a plane by the man you loved. What is really a miracle is that Carrie survived. She thinks the past is behind her and she has found a place to hide out. Her dear friend Isaac has been like a father to her and rescued her  from what could have been her death. When she discovers him dead, her world is shattered. What did he need to talk to her about as she was leaving that day? Was he trying to warn her of something?

Trevor has come to Alaska to find  out what happened to his sister who has been missing  for a year. All he has to go on is something she kept for him in a safety deposit box. He gets Carrie to fly him over the area where the clues that  were left for him might give him some answers. A strange accident finds the pilot that Trevor hired after Carrie couldn’t help anymore dead and with him was the only lead he had to find his sister. Was the pilot a victim of pilot error or something more sinister? 

With danger surrounding our two main characters the author delivers a powerful story. Carrie and Trevor start to see that there may be a connection between what they are investigating. Carrie is fierce and has no problem taking care of herself. I loved her strong character and appreciated how she was a bit skeptical of trusting Trevor. Now Trevor with his good looks and sharp mind was a little hard to like at times. He shares just enough with Carrie but still holds back a little. Will these two find a way to trust each other? 

It will come at a high price as Trevor and Carrie dig deeper into his sister’s disappearance and Carrie’s friends death. I loved being in Alaska and  following them on their journey. It is a breathtaking place but it can be dangerous if you are not prepared for the terrain. There are little communities that are tight lipped about anything going on in their town. As Trevor and Carrie get closer to the truth, threats start surrounding them. Don’t overlook the people who do help our two main characters. I loved how these people were willing to risk their lives and stand with Trevor and Carrie. 

The ending is thrilling, dangerous and filled with deceit, revenge and trust. I loved how the author brought Trevor and Carrie together in an adventure where puzzle pieces started to fit. The relationship between the two is slow to develop and I’m glad that the focus of the story was more on the illegal activities they were investigating. What a roller coaster ride this has been. The author includes faith elements in the story and how the main characters learned to rely on God to see them through danger. 

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The review is my own opinion.


  1. It sounds suspenseful, with great mystery. The first half of this review had a few spoilers- can you give a heads-up before those next time?
