Former Baltimore cop Nate Burke accepts the unlikely post of police chief of Lunacy, Alaska (pop. 506), to stave off the depression caused by divorce and the traumatic death of his partner, for which he holds himself partly responsible. His early days in the close-knit town are quiet except for minor disturbances and a dalliance with a feisty bush pilot, Meg Galloway. Then Meg's father, who disappeared 16 years before, is found frozen in a remote mountain cave, an ice ax in his chest.

I’ve never been to Alaska but I feel like Nora Roberts describes Lunacy and the surrounding area so well that I can practically feel the frostbite setting in. Though Meg wasn’t really a character I could relate to (she’s a bit too grumpy and independent to the point of stubborn) I do really appreciate that Roberts is never afraid to explore a different character type.

This was a very good book. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors.

The way she describes things is so detailed, you can almost feel the coldness she describes in the book. I can picture the scenic mountains of Alaska in my head, and it is beautiful!
