2.5 stars--Christian romantic suspense--Woman goes to Alaska to photograph a guy who deals with bears, finds out something about parents who were killed. Irritating in places.

I struggled a little bit rating this one. It held my interest, I enjoyed it, and I loved the mix of mystery and romance. There were simply several times during the course of the book that I found something a little hard to fully believe, so I considered rating it a three, but entertainment value won out and I went with a four. The author does a very good job making the reader feel they are actually experiencing the Alaskan wilderness, and I enjoyed the characters of Haley, Brooke, and Tank. If y ...more

Unimpressed. That's how I describe my attitude through the entirety of this book. I can't really blame the author; freelance writers tend to be of an, er, lesser quality.
The usage of Christianity felt forced, the relationships were very superficial, the dialogue was synonymous with a 14 year olds creative writing assignment. Just a lot about this was over all unimpressive. Not recommended to anyone younger than 40 of Protestant religion who doesn't spend their days knitting and watching family

This book has a pretty heavy Christian message. Haley Walsh has come back to Alaska where she lived until she was eight and her sister died, she lost part of her leg and then her parents sent her away. Haley and her grandmother, Augusta, are working with Kipp Nowak who makes TV documentaries with bears. Augusta is a writer and Haley is a photographer. Haley's parents had died in a fire a year earlier. She wonders about the fire but since she had no real contact with them, it doesn't seem to matt ...more

How can Haley emerge from the shadows of past sorrow into the light of forgiveness and grace?

On the surface, she's here to document wildlife activist Kipp Nowak's work with bears. 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

Haley Mitchell is a photographer that is given the rare opportunity to document biologist Tank Lassiter's work with bears in Alaska. She loves the beauty of the wilderness, but knows how deadly it can really be. Haley struggles with trying to find clues to the mystery of her past, but is strangely drawn to the wilderness - and Tank.

Haley is in Alaska for reasons of her own, and so is Tank. He could never imagine living anywhere but Alaska, and with a little girl to raise on his own, he couldn't

Alaska Twilight is a great adventurous book with a good mystery that lasted the whole book. Haley had a difficult situation that she is trying to work out which she did with the help of Tank, her aunt, and sister. The random bear facts and descriptions of Alaska made the book seem more real and easier to connect to. There was also romance with a good looking guy who was a caring father. Overall this was a good book with family values and the example that everyone can get through problems with su ...more

I like reading the "Women of Faith" books, but there is a certain barrier that makes the stories lack..I know it's the faith of these writers that they can only go so far with their characters..The stories are fun and the there is romance, but the romance always lack..I'm into stories that have a juicy romance in them if there is one to be started..
Anyways, this story was fun to read and I enjoyed some of the characters..

Another good story. It was very interesting reading about Haley and how she handles her handicap. I enjoyed reading about Alaska. Some day I will get there. I really liked how Bree, Kade and Samson from the Rock Harbor series were there and were able to help out. Anyway, this was another great Colleen Coble story. Suspense and romance together for a good, clean, interesting read. Thanks, Colleen!

This was the first book I have read by Colleen Coble, and I truly enjoyed it. Though there were some things that were predictable, there was a good amount of unpredictability as well. She also did a great job giving her characters individuality. A good read, with adventure, and suspense. I definitely would recommend it and I think I may have to pick up another of her books. :)

I really enjoyed this inspirational fiction. There is quite a bit of mystery thrown in as the main character tries to come to grips with her family's past, even as she falls in love with the wilderness guide assigned to help their group. I liked the characters and the storyline, and am looking forward to reading more by this author.
Nov 12, 2012 Kristyn rated it it was ok
Had the murderer figured out by the third chapter, but kept reading to see why. I lumbered through the middle to see the semi-okay romance develop. But by the end, just when I thought the suspense might make the story better, it got so far-fetched that I was groaning in misery. WAY too many coincidences and just too predictable throughout. The last few chapters really just became laughable they were so ridiculous.

Probably deserves one star, but I usually reserve that for books I can't stand to e

Enjoyable mystery about bears in Alaska.

Aw! I liked one of the characters that ...

I didn't figure out the mystery.

This is an author that my mother-in-law has enjoyed before, with a setting I also think she'd like, so I'll give her the book soon. I enjoyed Colleen Coble's Hawaiian series more.

I like this book, though I don't always agree with Coble's views on the nature of God. She sometimes says things about Him that I don't agree with. But, it was a very good mystery! I never guessed who it was in this one.

Romance and Suspense, I didn't have it all figured out until it was explained........well, I did figure out the last few pages of the romance part!!! Had to stay up to finish it off.

Coble's writing frustrates me, but her stories and characters continue to capture my attention and keep me intrigued until the very last page.

Alaska Twilight is a Christian romance novel. I didn't know that when I borrowed this from a friend, and I'm not sure that she did either since it was a gift and she hadn't read it yet.

It was strange to read a romance novel that wasn't even a little bit on the risque side. Every time there was dialogue along these lines, "We can't have a future until you work through your issues with God" I was reminded that this is part of the 'Women of Faith Fiction' series. (Ok, got it)

I gave Alaska Twilight

I would love to go to Alaska, but I know I never will, so I choose to read books whose story is based there. This was a good mystery as are all of Colleen Coble's stories. Worth reading!

I had a hard time at the beginning cause there were so many subplots but once the action really started rolling it was hard to put the book down.

Excellent Christian book with suspense that takes place in beautiful and wild Alaska.

A page turner!
Jan 19, 2012 Audrey rated it liked it
Read this for book club. I enjoyed the Alaskan setting and learning about bears and surviving in the bush. I thought Colleen Coble put in some great elements, and her characters were good overall. However, this is a romantic suspense, and I found the mystery to be all over the place at times. There were just so many different people, and sisters, and affairs, and family members...hard to keep up with. I would have preferred more of an explanation at the end. Oh, and maybe a picture of "Tank" on ...more
