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)
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.
I wasn't sure about a Nora Roberts story. I like Mysteries and Thrillers but this was a good love story with a mystery of who done it and it kept my interest. The narrator was fantastic and really made the Story even better. I would recommend this one to take your mind away to Alaska.
Mysterious Romantic Fun
Nate of course. The author made him so likeable and I wanted to see what happened to him.
The film has all ready been done I hear
This book kept my interest from start to finish! The way Nora Roberts described Alaska was amazing!
Gary Littman yes. Nora Roberts Maybe. This is not the forst book I have read from her. But I was not at all imprssed. I finished it only to see what the ending was. But it was too drawn out. I have to say Gary Littman did a great job in narrating the story.
There was not alot of passion in the story. It dragged on.
The narrator did just fine
No one really. Everyone played a decent part.
Moved to Stratford Ontario in 2014. Listen to my stories at night in bed mostly. Like narrators that aren't too loud or shrill!
As usual, Nora keeps us guessing. It took a while to reveal the murderer, and she played it well to keep us guessing.
I liked the description of the Alaskan town, and most of the characters. However, I cringed every time she had the Mayor speak - Gary Littman overdid the supposed harshness of that woman's voice!
This mystery/romance is a great read for anyone who loves to imagine life in Alaska. The new police chief relocates to a small Alaskan town right in the middle of the winter. Everyone places bets on whether or not he'll last until breakup. His romance with the local bush pilot is well plotted and reads believably.
I enjoy a story about the frontier and the tough minded folks who live there. This story is has a generational whodunit that keeps the reader engaged.
Gary Littman does a great job reading this narrative. His tone changes as his dry, damaged character begins to be charmed by the natural beauty of his surroundings. Very well done!
Excellent narration and a good story line in an interesting location.
Meg - classic strong woman
