Bear Witness (An Alaska Untamed Mystery)
by Lark O. Jensen
This is a great start to a new series. The pace is good, Stacie is a likable protagonist, there are multiple suspects, and it’s very well-written. There’s something for everyone in this great story.
~Christa Reads and Writes
In Bear Witness, Ms. Jensen has built a great foundation for this series going forward.
~Escape with Dollycas Into A Good Book
The beautiful descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness and its inhabitants was breathtaking. Visit inducing even.
~I Read What You Write!
Bear Witness is a wild tale with scenic cruises, a dead deckhand, a helpful Husky, a striking trooper, a careful killer, and wandering wildlife…
~The Avid Reader
If you enjoy cozy mystery books set in Alaska, I think you’ll enjoy Bear Witness for its lovely setting and puzzling murder.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
With a great setting and an exciting conclusion, BEAR WITNESS has lots of potential for a new series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Bear Witness was a good book. It did take me a little while to get into the story, but once it finally got going, I was reeled in until The End.
The setting is idyllic full of cute critters (deadly ones too) as well beautifully described scenery makes you feel like you are there. Add in a murder and a list of quirky characters as suspects to get a read you won’t want to put down.
~Books A Plenty Book Reviews
I enjoyed this story and will watch for the next book in the Alaska Untamed Mysteries.
~Carla Loves To Read
Bottom Line: Bear Witness by Lark O. Jensen takes readers on a tour of Alaska in all its wild beauty. You’ll spot seals and bears, glaciers and ice floes, even some wolves and a humpback whale or two…

Alaska tour boat guide Stacie Calder faces the deep freeze in this scenic cozy series debut perfect for fans of Paige Shelton.
No nine-to-five cubicle career will suit Stacie Calder—the naturalist much prefers working in the great outdoors. Specifically, the spacious and spectacular Alaskan wilderness, whose rugged charms she shares with sightseers on the top deck of the tour boat where she works. But one May afternoon, Stacie’s passengers see more than glittering glaciers, frolicking harbor seals, climbing bears and soaring seabirds…they also witness a man lying dead in the frigid Alaskan waters. And it seems likely that someone gave him a fatal push.
Stacie didn’t know the unfortunate victim, but he sure wanted to know a lot about her. He spent most of his final afternoon bombarding her with questions quite awkward to answer. And when he wasn’t in her hair, he was arguing incessantly with the boat’s beleaguered crew. Which makes for a suspect list about as long as the passenger manifest. Furthermore, as police helicopters relentlessly circle her boat in search of any clues, Stacie is shaken to find herself on that suspect list.
Before the tour boat reaches shore Stacie—accompanied by her beautiful blue-eyed husky, Sasha—must deduce just who sent the testy tourist tumbling into the turgid waters and have the authorities take custody. Because if she can’t, then the killer might aim a fatal ice-cold stare at Stacie.
