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.

"[A] richly textured novel that captures the intimacy of smalltown police work, the prickliness of the pioneer spirit and the paradox of a setting at once intimate and expansive." (Publishers Weekly)
"Roberts's latest hit novel could not be performed better." (AudioFile)
Overall the book was between a 4 and a 5 .. but the reader was just a bit too vanilla for my taste. He had about 3 different voices and used them interchangeably in such a way that many of the characters sounded the same .. it was like he couldn't keep them straight himself so he just "winged" it and it was annoying. The interplay between the two main characters was fun and "real," and that was refreshing. Their ability to argue and stick together was nice. I haven't read much by Nora Roberts under that name, and I don't think I"ll be going out of my way to get more, but it was a pleasant interlude with a quick and colorful glimpse of life in Alaska.
one of the best
liked all of the main characters - their strength
enjoyed his voice - very compelling
the killing of the bear to protect the dogs
I love Nora Roberts and she didn't disappoint with this one. Romance,suspense,humor and great characters. I love the descriptive way she writes.
I am not sure what it was about this book that I didn't like. I usually like Nora Roberts but couldn't get into this book. I made it about 1/3 into the book but I need to admit that I did not finish it. Could be good for someone else.
Someone who likes linear and shallow romance novels with a dull edge.
Anything NOT by Nora Roberts
No, but I liked his voice. He did a good job. It was the text that riled me.
I liked Nate, the one telling the story. It was the cheap stereotypical small town women that I found disgusting. I like most stories about Alaska, fiction or non-fiction. I could have kept listening if not for those slutty women. I don't think Nora did her research. I live in an isolated small town in Wy, and have never met a woman like that here, and per my reading, they aren't in Alaska either. Those kind of women are usually in big cities at cheap corner bars.
It was a waste of money.
not worth my time, glad i listen
get out of the cold and go to the next season. A sequel would be nice because Alaska is so beautiful
great in another season
Yes...it is a good story and I like the characters. Nora Roberts really makes them come alive.
Hmmm...I would say the mountian side rescue...very exciting and it really started the story moving from there.
I don't know...wasn't a huge fan of how he read the story. Once I got past the first few chapters it got better but in the beginning it was an adjustment.
This is the first book I read by Nora Roberts. I found myself sad after it was over. I did not want the story to end. This book keeps you guessing. It could have been much longer if it went into more detail about the characters, but it was still a great read.
I didn't realize when I purchased this audiobook that I had read the book years ago. Normally that would not stop me from listening --- in this case it is a GREAT story, Nora Roberts does a terrific job of bringing all the characters of this small Alaskan town to life .. and Alaska herself is a beautiful character in the book. Unfortunately for me, the narration was downright dull. It lacked inflection when needed, it did nothing to honor the personalities of the characters .. about 1/3 of the way in, I decided to contact Audible for a refund.
