This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts love/mystery stories. I first bought is in cassette but eventually wore those out and had to buy it digitally. The main character and his supporting cast are colorful, deep and they use their brains for thinking, not just to wear extra warm headgear for the cold.
If you are looking for a book that you can listen to anywhere - this is it. There is humor, life, death, murder, conspiracy, and a crazy tow-truck driver. I would love to see this have a sequel so I could hear more about the Lunitics and their steadfast Chief of Police!
The descriptions of the town and the surrounding land and mountains is so detailed, that you often feel you are their watching the Northern Lights with the characters.

While one could say that most books in the romance genre following the same basic format--it's the back story that makes a book interesting or not and gives it its uniqueness. This back story is definitely interesting & unique. I really like the Alaskan setting & the suspense was intriguing. I'd picked out every character in the story (at one point or another) to be the villian before it was finally revealed. The narrator did a good job with the exception of the mayor's voice. The mayor is an older woman with a foghorn laugh--the narrator kinda over acted her part. But other than that (which is very tolerable) he did an excellent job. Overall I enjoyed the book & performance & would recommend it all the way around.

This is one of the better audiobooks that I have listen too.
The story told from a male main character, which is not common for a Nora Roberts book and Gary Littan handles all the characters parts brillantly each sound expressing the character personality and carry you easily though the story.
This is certainly an audio which I gladly listen to over and over again

I read the book several years ago and thought I would like to hear it again. I was very pleased with the narrators voice.He takes the parts of the different characters very well and the book is much funnier than I remember and I'm sure that is due to hearing the book spoken in an appropriate accent for the setting rather than a welsh accent (in my head).Really enjoying it.

Having read 'The Witness', which I absolutely loved, I was looking for another Nora Roberts novel that combined similar elements. Unfortunately, for me anyway, this was not the book. I found the two main women characters beyond annoying and so cliched and the mystery not all that interesting. The one saving grace was the Alaskan setting. The narrator was fine. I will try another Nora Roberts book because for me 'The Witness' was that good.

Different to have a male perspective .The omniscient voice is without artifice,as is the rough terrain of the magnificent Alaskan landscape.Romance ,Murder,intrigue,kept me guessing as to themurderer until almost the conclusion.I can usually guess much earlier,! The many colours of emotion contribute to a different perspective ,Another Nora Roberts masterpiece of construction.
