Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran Christian romance novelist Coble sets her latest story in Alaska, where protagonist Haley Walsh goes to take still photographs for a celebrity nature documentarian's foray into bear country. There Haley faces painful childhood memories of her sister's death and her parents' rejection. As bear biologist Tank Lassiter leads photographer Nowak's team through the wild, he and Haley quickly forge a strong connection that each tries to fight for fear of getting hurt. Before the main characters know it, secrets about the deaths of Tank's wife and Haley's parents emerge. The novel's romantic and suspense plots are strictly by the numbers. The two romantic leads dutifully go through all the motions of denying, then fearing, then finally embracing their attraction, and while the identity of the primary villain is not telegraphed, many other plot points are. Several Christian fiction clichés are in full bloom as well: a city-dwelling protagonist learns important lessons in a small town, a non-Christian converts just in time to make an appropriate romantic partner for a mature Christian, and unsavory female characters are marked as such either by their unattractiveness or sexually provocative behavior. But Coble's prose is competent, and readers who crave a light, though formulaic, Christian novel will not be disappointed. (Mar. 7)

From Booklist

Photographer Haley Mitchell has come to Alaska to help document wildlife biologist Tank Lassiter's work with bears. Tank, predictably, is a mountain of a man and a staunch environmentalist concerned with the effects of global warming on bear environments. He is also a Christian and therefore a romantic possibility for Haley, despite the inhibitions imposed by her urban, moralizing soul. Meanwhile, as the documentary team hits the trail, a popular doctor is killed, apparently by bears. Tank and Haley work frantically to find the real, human culprit, bringing some suspense to this light but pleasant tale.

I've read this twice and enjoyed it immensely both times. The heroine is a spunky lady who comes to terms with her fears and losses right before your eyes. She is a wonderful example to us readers who may need some help to see past physical handicaps to the person inside. Our hero is strong and rugged and everything you'd expect to find in an Alaskan Bear Researcher/Guide. Alaska Twilight is incredibly entertaining! Colleen Coble has a way with words that kicks my visual imagination into overdrive. I'm glad to have this novel in my personal library.

And I agree with other reviewers: the ending was wonderful!

Colleen Coble is a MASTER at weaving a detail plot, loveable characters, and the perfect setting. I was swept away to the beauty of Alaska, fell in love with a big, hunky hero, and my heart broke for poor Haley. If you love reading stories of suspense, love, and hope, you don't want to miss this one!

I've read all of Colleen Coble's books and I have to say, this one blew me away! Using a protagonist with a handicap was a stroke of genius. . .makes you root for the heroine all the more. And the surprise appearance of some of Ms. Coble's favorites was a welcome delight. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romantic suspense--you won't be sorry!

I enjoyed this one and finished it quickly. Haley was a likeable character and I was impressed to find that she was handicapped. The mystery was engaging though I figured out whodunit about halfway through. The biggest hint was in the prologue. ;)

I'd love to give this 5 stars but I felt that at times the storyline was a bit confusing. The events in the prologue seemed like they happened over a decade from the story's beginning, not just a couple years. There were also multiple characters with motives and a few relationships that you had to remember how they went together. My advice would be to take notes and to draw out a family tree as you go. The other women in our reading group felt the same way. We actually spend a bit of time trying to figure out the actual storyline!

All in all though, it is a good read. The characters are well developed and the setting is nicely described. I will be reading the next one in the series!

No matter where Ms. Coble sets her books, once I start reading, I'm there. I found myself looking over my shoulders for bears on the loose as I hiked over rocky terrain without ever leaving my sofa. I wanted to knock some sense into a couple of characters while my heart melted toward others. A book of intrigue, suspense, and believable characters, this book was a page turner from start to finish.

I highly recommend Alaska Twilight!

I was torn between whether to give this book a four or five until I got to the ending. The conclusion was as good as any I've ever read.

For some reason, the characters didn't draw me in as much as usual in Coble's novels. However, the book was still interesting, even though I did have the the villian figured out before the end. I like that sometimes, and I've learned I can never be sure.

This is a strong Christian story filled with adventure, mystery, and romance. It reads quickly, and I would recommend it.

Format: Kindle Edition
Indiana author, Colleen Coble, needs a "heads-up" for the men. She's not just writing romance for the ladies, even though most women will love her books, including "Alaska Twilight" for that aspect. Coble mixes it all together. Kings and Queens, if you like rugged wilderness nature, and/or complicated mystery, then here is a book to read. The setting alone gives the satisfaction of a travel book, with its scenes intricately described. Readers can almost smell the pine needles...
and bear scat.

The mystery involves a family house fire accident and a cave collapse that causes death. When Haley returns to the Alaskan area where all this happened in the lives of her family, new events take place that begin to weave a tapestry of clues. Not all is revealed about the truth. Haley struggles with deciding if she wants to know all the truth.

The adventure takes place during a summer in Alaska with a crew thrown together to document human interaction with bears. A TV nature/animal star seeks a new documentary, a local biologist (Tank who looks the Paul Bunyan type)who studies bears, Haley the still photographer, camera crew, and Grandma Agusta (author) all converge on the Alaskan bear population for each their own reasons. Often their personal purposes clash, but the summer must go on. I learned more about bears than I'll ever use the rest of my life, but it was a pleasant education while reading about the story characters that loved them and thrived due to them.

The family connections and personal relationships of the characters in this small village area in Alaska required me to keep a paper handy as a sort of genealogy chart. Nothing like small town backwoods Alaskan life for intimate interaction.

Book review for:

Alaska Twilight

By Colleen Coble

Alaska is a wide-open state full of wonder, wildlife, tundra, and scenery, any one of which would open ones eyes as wide as most any other sight on earth.

Colleen Coble takes you into this land of adventure with Haley Walsh. Haley travels to the wilds to attempt to find out what happened when her parents were killed in their cabin fire years before. Haley meets some long lost family members as she tries to unravel the mystery of her parents' death in that fire. She meets up with a tough man, Tank Lassiter, who works as a bear biologist, especially with Miki, who Tank had raised from when he was a cub.

The descriptions of the Alaska wilderness, the bears, the few towns in the vicinity, the many types of people, some nice and some defiantly not nice, and the living in this country will dominate your mind from cover to cover. During all this, Haley tries desperately to find God since she thinks He forsook her when her sister and her parents were killed years earlier.

Alaska Twilight is hard to put down. Colleen Coble writes in a way that keeps you involved and makes you feel as though you were looking behind you for the bears!
