    Cold Pursuit is a mystery/suspense novel by author Gayla K Hiss.It is book 4 of the Peril in the Park series. Monica Wallace is missing. Faith is on a free tour trip to Yellowstone National Park with her friend Shelly, hoping to get away from her problems at home. I love the setting, Yellowstone National Park at Christmas.

I learned the Fort Yellowstone was once used by the U.S. Army when it was in charge of the park, before the administration duties were transferred to the National Park Service in 1918. Who is the masked menace who seems to be following Faith? Can the reader figure it out before the end of the novel? There are so many ways this novel could have ended. I did have it figured out but that did not ruin my interest in the book. Can a young couple who broke up seven years ago start over? Or should they continue to move on with their own lives? This is a quick read and I recommend the book to fans of mystery or suspense. Even though it is book #4 of the series it can act as a standalone. However, you’ll love it so much you will want to read the rest in the series.

    I enjoyed the suspense element as much or more than any book I have read recently. As the story neared the conclusion, I was surprised to learn who the masked man was. No, it was not the Lone Ranger. This was a bad dude who kept showing up at the most importune times for Faith. I kept wondering if he would ever get caught. I appreciated the fact that Faith began to realize that God wasn’t a being who sat way off somewhere in Heaven with no particular interest in our daily decisions, such as what I enjoyed the suspense element as much or more than any book I have read recently.

I appreciated the fact that Faith began to realize that God wasn’t a being who sat way off somewhere in Heaven with no particular interest in our daily decisions, such as what job she should accept. What an amazing discovery for her to learn that He truly does care about every aspect of our lives. Now it may be one thing to read that in a fiction story, but the truth of the matter is that He does care. We can bank on that. I enjoyed the awesome scenery described by the author. My only trip to Yellowstone and Old Faithful was over sixty years ago during the summer, so we obviously missed the grandeur of the park in the winter. I can’t say the book was almost like a travelogue because there was far more to the story than the descriptions of the geysers erupting, the wildlife all over the place, the frozen waterfalls, steaming rivers, and challenging trails. The action was intense and the drama was almost comical, if it had not been so pathetic. To clarify, I am referring to two women who were such drama queens. Faith was not the only one who had some lessons to learn from God. Jake had some old issues to settle as well. The only disappointing thing about the book is that it is the final one in this series. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.

    "Cold Pursuit" is the fourth and final book in the Peril in the Parks series. I first met Jake Mitchell in "Wildfire", book three in the series, but you could read this book as a standalone. Some of the characters are mentioned and you do learn a little bit about Jake's background by reading "Wildfire" first, though. There was part of the mystery that I had figured out, but I didn't know the whole story, so it still kept me in suspense until the end.

    Great Suspense, Setting, & Romance! I loved this series set in our amazing national parks! I’m sorry they have come to an end. I enjoyed all the suspenseful twists and turns in the stories and learned a lot about the parks and different events that were taking place in the stories. I enjoyed the different characters and sweet romances as well! My husband and I are trying to visit as many of the national parks as we can so the settings of these books were very interesting to me. Thanks Gayla!

    A wintry adventure Far from the relaxing vacation at Yellowstone she was expecting, Faith found herself the target of a masked man. Was it somehow related to Monica's disappearance? Was it someone trying to hurt the business of the tour company? Or, was it actually a jealous female, hating that Jake was showing her interest? Gayla K. Hiss did a great job in keeping the motive behind the attacks as hidden as the person behind them. I was kept guessing.

Gayla K. Hiss did a great job in keeping the motive behind the attacks as hidden as the person behind them. I was kept guessing. When I thought I knew the answer, there was reason to question it yet again. While Jake had been hurt when Faith broke off their engagement years earlier and then surprised and a little dismayed to find her on the tour he was leading, his response was mature and even kind. Well, after he stopped ignoring her, that is. It was not an "insta-forgiveness"; he had to choose to forgive and treat her with kindness. This did make it more realistic to me. While I was bursting with curiosity and just wanted Faith to tell Jake why she deserted him right away, I could see why she would have wanted to avoid doing that. Not a fan of confrontation myself, I loved that Jake was able to forgive without knowing why she had made the choice she did. The descriptions of Yellowstone made me want to hop on a plane and go visit immediately. It even made me want to do cross-country skiing! At least in theory. :-) Read my full review at Among the Reads I was given a copy of this book. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review.

    Gayla K. Hiss has written an exciting story of second-chance love for her main characters Faith Chandler and Jake Mitchell. Their story takes place among the grandeur of Yellowstone National Park in December. The scenery, park features and wildlife are described in exquisite detail.

Unfortunately, Faith is targeted by an unknown assailant for the duration of her two-week trip to Yellowstone. “...the sound of a motor disrupted the silence. Shifting her focus, she saw a red and black snowmobile crossing the parking lot at a breakneck speed. Surprised she stared at the oncoming vehicle, expecting it to stop. When it didn’t, she dove out of the way right when it veered where she had been standing.” This is a romantic story with elements of nail-biting suspense. It is book 4 in the Peril in the Park series. It can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read the other books in the series but I will be shortly. I recommend Gayla K. Hiss’s books to teens and adults alike. I was provided an Advanced Readers Copy of this book by the author. I was not given or offered any compensation for my honest review.

    Cold Pursuit the last in Gayla Hiss's Peril in the Park Series, is a fast paced page turner full of mystery, intrigue and romance. Once started I couldn’t put it down and the story kept me guessing until the very end. All this with an almost magical setting, a White Christmas at Yellowstone, which is described in wonderful detail. The depth and intricacies of the characters relationships only heightened the suspense. Their faith was also evident throughout the book adding a special element.

    This mystery set in the winter wonderland of Yellowstone Park was a walk down memory lane for me. My husband and I took a snowmobile trip through the park many years ago. The book is well written with interesting characters but I felt like the mystery took a backseat to the wonders of the Park. I like this series a lot. I like the overlap of one character from the previous book in the series.

    Fair warning…after reading this book you’ll want to pack your bags for the trip to Yellowstone :) “By day, the giant fountain awed and dazzled with her power and spectacle. By moonlight, her water exploits became an enthralling, romantic dance, suspended between heaven and earth.” I’ve really enjoyed this fast pace suspense, which is beautifully written with great descriptive detail.

    Very good book. It contained suspense and little romantic interest. I could visualize the scenes of Yellowstone since we visited there 2 years ago, in the summer not winter. Well worthy of 5 stars. I received an ARC of the book, but this is my honest opinion and I was not influenced by the advance copy.

    Exciting book that kept me guessing. I had not previously read the three other books preceding this, but I certainly will now! Fast paced yet the sheer enjoyment of the spectacular scenery never made it seem rushed. I know I want to visit these sights, but I think I will try for fall, the cold there was punishing. Great story line and I am a sucker for second chance romances!
