Nora Roberts like to get into a lot of detail. This book really makes you believe that you are in Alaska. A shieff from the lower 48 comes to find himself and solve an 14 year old murder.

Nora Roberts flies us into Lunacy, Alaska, population 506, and into a colorful, compelling novel about two lonely souls who find love-- and redemption.

I live in Alaska, so I was prepared to be unimpressed by a 'cheechako's' portrayal of life here--in spite of the fact that it's Nora Roberts and I love nearly everything she's ever written. I was pleasantly surprised, however; she clearly did her research, and she describes Alaska and our unique outlook on life very accurately.

I also love the heroine--I kept thinking of the character Maggie (Janine Turner) from Northern Exposure...and yes, Alaskans really do love their dogs that much! :)

I really enjoyed this book, Nora has not disappointed me yet. I was a little skeptical of this one, waiting to say "Ha! that is not true to form!" since I am a lifelong Alaskan, but I never felt the need to say that, I just enjoyed it.

Still reeling from the death of his partner, Officer Nate Burke takes a job as sheriff of a small town in Alaska. Nate soon meets the colorful town's people, including Charlene, a serious man-eater who runs the town's only hotel, and her daughter Meg, a sexy pilot. Nate and Meg are soon drawn together when three college students go missing while mountain climbing. While the boys are soon found alive, Nate gets a big surprise when a frozen body was also found with an ax in chest.

I wasn't expecting this book to be so good. The descriptions of Alaska and the town's people are so real, you feel like you're there with them. Great story!
