Nate moved to Alaska and became the police chief in a small city named Lunacy to get away from the big city where he watched his partner and friend die in a gun fight which still haunts him. At first it's a nice quiet job and he begins to wonder if he made a mistake until the first body is discovered, frozen in a snow cave. It turns out it had been there for 16 years. Afterwards a crime spree begins, vandalism, murder, and everyone is suspect. In between all this action is the developing romance between Nate and Meg. The story starts out kind of slow but then picks up when Nate's investigation into what's happening in this small town begins with lots of twists and turns and a few surprises.
There were also some nice descriptions of Alaska in the winter and spring.
The narrator did a pretty good job, although at times I did have a little trouble distinguishing if Meg or Nate was talking because the voices sounded kind of the same.
So well written I want to go to Alaska. I could hardly stop listening for wanting to find out who the killer was and why.
A quick witted, damaged hero, too delectable to ignore; a heroine with more guts than 10 women, no slouch in the damaged department either BTW. Add to that a cast of secondary characters to make any listener's Top Ten List of Absolute Hoots. And the narrator is brilliant.
Don't pass this one up. You'll be sorry if you do.
but this one was just gorgeous and there was enough of a plot to make the second time round enjoyable just picking up on the clues that were left along the way.
Gary Littman does a great job and made me go all Charlene and want to head up to Alaska to find Nate.
I like mysteries, suspense and thrillers. Occasionally I will listen to some scifi or fantasy.
This is not my favorite Nora Roberts book but I did like the mystery and the location very much. I didn't guess who did it until much later in the book.
Another perfect book by Nora Roberts. Love her work! Murder mystery, great romance, interesting Alaskan location. Love it!
Pacing, mystery, romance
Perfect in every way. Love him!
Love almost everything Nora Roberts does..
Make the romance less crude. I enjoy romance read a lot of it, have really enjoyed some of Nora Roberts other books more than the romance in this one.
I would haave preferred a woman narrator.
This book was a total waste of a credit and time. My husband and I finished it because we were listening to it while on a long auto trip, but the story lacked credibility. The ending was ridiculous and did nothing to pull together what story line there was! The impression at the end was that the author wanted this book to end as much as the listener did so she chose a murderer and that was that. I have other Nora Robert's books in our audible library, but doubt that I will purchase more!
awful to hear...just hard to imagie everything...voice was grooggy
book was fine...
whoever read this should practice
I enjoyed this enough to listen to it twice - and will probably do so again. Interesting characters and story with some different twists to make it enjoyable.
