I know when I read a Darlene L. Turner story I am in for an action packed story where nobody is safe from peril, I'll have a hard time figuring out who the villain is, and there will be a good faith thread throughout. Alaskan Avalanche Escape is no different.
The action in this story starts on page one and really never lets up until the mystery is solved. And even though I accused most everyone of being the villain, I was totally wrong and totally surprised at the end. While I enjoyed the storyline, the writing style, and the very unexpected ending, I did not really care for Jayla and the way she treated Bryson. This really took me out of the story. While the reason for her behavior was explained, I felt like it was just too weak of a reason, especially in light of her past. These things made it hard to believe in their HEA.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is medium.
