I have to admit, this is the first Nora Roberts I’ve read, and it’s a big, fat one.

Take one depressed Outsider cop from the lower 48 and toss him into a secluded Alaskan town named Lunacy. He’s the first chief of police they’ve ever had. Take one tough, supremely independent woman who owns Alaska’s a$$. Add in the discovery of a 16-year-old murder. Stir in a bunch of grumpy locals who all seem to have motives and means, and at the same time, don’t. Voila, you have a rocket full of conflict ready to blast off.

I found it interesting how the character’s changed in this story. There was a definite arc as the cop regained the ground beneath his feet, found his purpose and grew stronger and more determined. On the other hand, the gal starts out tough as nails and slowly allows her softer side to make appearances. It was well played out. And yes, of course the officer got his man (and girl).
