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)
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.
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.
