Lunacy, Alaska - population 506 - is Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he had watched his partner die - and the guilt still haunts him. Maybe serving as Chief of Police in this tiny, remote town, where darkness falls by mid-afternoon and temperatures fall to below zero, will bring some kind of solace. It isn't as if he has anywhere else to go. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose and pulling apart two brothers fighting overJohn Wayne's best movie Nate's first weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But as he wonders whether this was all a big mistake, an unexpected kiss from feisty bush pilot Meg Galloway under the brilliant Northern Lights of the Alaska sky lifts his spirit - and convinces him to stay just a little longer. Born and raised in Lunacy, Meg has learned to be independent. But there's something about Nate's sad eyes that gets under her skin, and warms her frozen heart. However, when two climbers find a corpse on the mountain, Nate discovers that Lunacy isn't quite the sleepy little backwater he imagined.

Review:

While Alaska is an unfamiliar setting for a Roberts novel, the song she sings here remains happily for fans of the romantic suspense genre the same. The New York Times
[An] engaging mix of suspense and romance. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The characters in Northern Lights come alive on the pages It s well written, has intriguing characters, a tantalizing plot, wit and romance. The Times Union (Albany, NY)
The setting is economically but beautifully evoked, the spare style balancing the breathtaking grandeur of Alaska. Pace, dialogue and scenes are cunningly shaped, and the police procedural skillfully dovetails with romance. The Washington Post Book World
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, welcoming and hostile, indisputably American and yet profoundly exotic to those in the Lower 48. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Jack London, move over. The Queen of Romance has you in her sights...Roberts doesn t miss in this wild and woolly tale of love and murder in Alaska. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
The amazingly prolific Roberts continues to entertain and entice readers with good old-fashioned storytelling. Library Journal
Roberts beautifully captures the rugged splendor of Alaska, and her cast of uniquely endearing secondary characters adds just the right touch of quirky humor to her splendidly entertaining, sexy, and suspenseful romance about two tough yet vulnerable people. Booklist"
