Extremely enjoyable romantic suspense story set in Alaska. Hero Nate Burke who is running from his past in Baltimore takes the job of Chief of Police in the remote town of Lunacy, Alaska. Heroine Meg Galloway, who is a bush pilot, is the girl he falls for. The story focuses more on Nate adjusting to life in Alaska and the years-old murder mystery that is uncovered, than it does on the romance, but that worked out just fine for me. The cast of many characters were really memorable with suspects galore for the crime. The setting of Alaska was a character itself, described in such vivid detail. I could feel the freezing cold and see the snow covered mountains. This book was really long but I never found myself bored, it held my interest throughout. ( )

Northern Lights crosses the line of a small town with a big city cop. It presents a storyline that makes you feel the chemistry between the characters. At times it seems to stray from the storyline, and at points switches to the perspective of characters that have minor roles in the book. All in all an interesting book to read. ( )

Fantastic! A mystery with twists and turns and I didn't know who it was until the very last minute. I will have to read it again to see if there were signs that I didn't pick up on. Round that out with strong people doing whatever it takes to survive in Alaska and the love for this story couldn't get much more. ( )

To my precious Logan, son of my son.  Life will be your treasure box, filled with the sparkle of laughter, the gleam of adventure, the shine of discovery, the flash of magic.  And through all these jewels streams the steady glow of love.
