Editorial Reviews

Based on the best-selling book by Nora Roberts! Haunted by the death of his partner, former Baltimore cop Nate Burns (Eddie Cibrian, TV's "Ugly Betty") accepts the job as chief of police in the remote outpost of Lunacy, Alaska. Once there, he falls for Meg Galligan (music superstar LeAnn Rimes), a feisty bush pilot with her own demons. When Meg's father, a man she's long believed abandoned her and her mother Charlene (Rosanna Arquette, Desperately Seeking Susan), turns up dead, Nate becomes embroiled in a high-profile murder investigation - and must use his big-city survival instincts to solve an elusive mystery threatening his new life and love.

This is the 4th Nora Roberts based movie that my wife and I have enjoyed. It is. of course, an adaptation and, unless you are prepared for a 12 hour minisweries, it is always impossible to crowd an entire novel into a movie. Moving from book to movie means picking out what is best suited to the screen, and a necessary element in the plot, and discarding anything else. That was done well here. The main characters were well portrayed, even giving allowance for the fact that the female lead has not spent most of her professional carreer as an actress. This was at least as well done as 'Montana Sky'.

Nate Burns (Eddie Cibrian), a former homicide detective in Baltimore, has just been appointed the new Chief of Police of Lunacy, a small town in the Alaskan Rockies. Burns quit his previous job after his partner was shot and killed, and Burns feels responsible. The two most eligible females in Lunacy, Charleen Galligan (Rosanna Arquette) and her daughter Meg (LeAnne Rimes), are both romantically interested in him. Charleen's husband disappeared a decade earlier and the family assumed he'd just upped and left. But now two young climbers find his body with an ice-pick in his chest, so the search is on for his killer. Several of the townsfolk are resentful at Burns because they thought someone from the town should have got the job, not an outsider. Now, although the state police want to take over the case, Burns insists on handling it because he believes the killer is still in town. When the editor of the local newspaper is also killed, Burns is convinced his theory is right, though the townsfolk are happy to call it a suicide. There are twists and turns in the story, and it's quite an exciting thriller.

One of my favorite Nora Roberts books and I bought movie thinking it would be true to the book just a little. It didn't even have enough of the Alaskan scenery to make up for the horrible way plot and characters were totally screwed, I wouldn't even rate it one star.

I love this Nora Roberts movie, It has just enough intrigue added to the romance and is a wonderful rainy afternoon getaway.

Love, love love the Nora Roberts movies! After watching them so many times on Lifetime, I had to own them. These are great movies that I watch over and over with a couple of other Nora Roberts movies! These are a must for Nora Roberts fans!

I'm about thirty minutes into it and I can't take any more. I loved the book but this movie is an insult to it. For one, there is no engaging the viewer. The scene are rushed, there are no transitions, and I feel like the whole movie is just rushing along to get the movie done, regardless of how it ends up. I've. Never felt so disconnected with a movie before. They don't take the time for the viewer to get to know the characters. It's just bam! Here they are, here's the actors reading their lines, throw in a few shots of snowy mountains, the end.

I was curious to see the movie that this couple was making when they fell in love with each other, romantic that I am! Was pretty good. I'd seen LeAnn in another movie, and she's not a bad actress. I thought she did a pretty good job. Her (now) husband, is handsome and rugged - a manly looking guy. They worked well together.

As much as i love Nora Roberts books, i was not that impressed with the movie. The characters didn't even come close in looks or actions as in the book. It was interesting, but also a disappointment if you read the book.
