Mountain Refuge, a true Alaska book

Mountain RefugeMountain Refuge by Sarah Varland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mountain Refuge is a good, suspenseful book with a romance that seems a bit fast, but still believable, due to the fact that the relationship is forged in fire, fear, and fighting against a serial killer.

I really enjoyed this book. It moved quickly, and yet it was paced well. Plenty of crisis moments, faith moments, and conversation to make it all worthwhile.

Books set in Alaska are tricky, and because I've lived there I am overly critical. I can almost always tell if the author has been there or not, just from how they write about Alaska. (I could name names, but that might get me in trouble!)

You can rest easy with anything by Sarah Varland, however--she's the real deal! Her book gives such a sense of place with Alaska. From the strangeness of summer daylight to the feel of hiking in the mountains, she's absolutely captured the essence of Alaskan life.

Highly recommended!
