Summary:

Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as Chief of Police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But just as he wonders whether this has been all a big mistake, an unexpected kiss on New Year's Eve under the brilliant Northern Lights of the Alaska sky lifts his spirit and convinces him to stay just a little longer. Meg Galloway, born and raised in Lunacy, is used to being alone. She was a young girl when her father disappeared, and she has learned to be independent, flying her small plane, living on the outskirts of town with just her huskies for company. After her New Year's kiss with the Chief of Police, she allows herself to give in to passion - while remaining determined to keep things as simple as possible. But there's something about Nate's sad eyes that gets under her skin and warms her frozen heart. And now, things in Lunacy are heating up. Years ago, on one of the majestic mountains shadowing the town, a crime occurred that is unsolved to this day - and Nate suspects that a killer still walks the snowy streets. His investigation will unearth the secrets and suspicions that lurk beneath the placid surface, as well as bring out the big-city survival instincts that made him a cop in the first place. And his discovery will threaten the new life - and the new love - that he has finally found for himself.

    I love Nora Roberts. I love her happy endings and her love stories and yet she can write a good mystery. This combined both and was fun to read. I didnt figure it out until almost the end. I love too how you get to laugh and feel good when reading her books.

    Great story, and the narrator's voice was really enjoyable. I was trying to solve the crime throughout the whole book, which made it an interesting listen, and loved how it came to a head at the end.

    I love Nora Roberts, and this book was no exception. But it was a little long, with alot of drawn out details of routine daily living. I think an abridged version would have been better.

    i enjoyed this book and i keep thinking about it. the thing i enjoyed most about it was the wonderful descriptions of the little town and the artic weather, northern lights, mountains covered with ice, the cold and when it came, the spring with milder weather. i felt i was there. i thought the plot was well worked out, moved along at a good pace to hold your interest. and the characters were mostly believable. they were a bit too predictable though. however both nate and meg were likable anyway. the reader was good and had many voices to portray. an altogether enjoyable book.

    What a great ride. I just came back from Alaska and this book lengthened my vacation as well as introducing me to some real Alaska-type folks. LOVE my books on tape and this one was one of the best.
