This is an oldie but goodie if you are a Nora Robert's old school fan. I haven't read this one in forever, but was glad to see it when I was at Powell's book store. I am happy to say I didn't remember who was the bad guy in this one so I went in legitimately surprised. It's a slow burn romance novel...

Northern Lights by Nora Roberts Lunacy, Alaska--population 506--a colorful, compelling novel about two lonely souls who find love--and redemption. Lunacy is Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he watched his partner die--and the guilt still haunts him. Maybe serving as chief of poli...

Ugh. This book gave me a raging headache. I don't remember who half the characters were and couldn't remember them while reading. There were just too many of them. Lots of time spent in awe of the snowy mountains. I mean, this is a busy book. Lots of things are happening. The repeated descriptions o...

I read this, unfortunately, in a rather clumsy German translation. The story in itself was good, though--a twenty-year old case of murder that fueled a series of killings in a likably clichéed small Alaskan town, and a nice romance too.

A good read, but maybe a 100 pages too long and with a major pain in the nether regions heroine (which is a first in a NR book for me).

I sometimes wonder if there are two authors named Nora Roberts. Some of her books are very good, others are so dull beyond belief. This is one of the good ones. OK it's a little cliched but burnt out Baltimore cop Nate Burke accepts the job of Police Chief in a remote Alaskan town called Lunacy. Whi...
But I don’t know what to do with those Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs.
I enjoyed this book, but I primarily enjoyed it for the murder mystery, which was really interesteing and well-written. The romance between Nate and Meg was just so-so. The characterizations of the people in town were also excellent. You really got the sense of knowing the dynamic of this small A...

Great romantic / mystery. It was also fun to picture the small city in Alaska, the cold, the dark, the light, the northerns lights. Just fascinating. It reminded me of the old TV series Northern Exposure. Fun!!

"This book is a perfect example of why I love Nora Roberts so much. It takes a lot for me to want to move anywhere in the north where winters are long and harsh. Yet, even long after finishing Northern Lights, there is a part of me that really wants to move to Alaska. Her descriptions of its harshne...

I liked this one. Nora Robert is, in recent books of hers that I've read, 3 for 3 with the prickly heroines/cool heroes. Like Birthright and Tribute, I liked the hero more than I liked the heroine. Police Detective Nate Burke comes to a small town Lunatic, AK (pop. around 600) to get away from th...
