In the Nora Roberts movie “Northern Lights,” former Baltimore policeman Nate Burns (Eddie Cibrian) was hoping to start a new life by accepting the job of chief of police in the town of Lunacy, Alaska. He escapes to the small, remote town in an effort to forget the traumatic death of his partner, for which he holds himself partially responsible. But the moment he meets Meg Galligan (LeAnn Rimes), an independent and feisty bush pilot with her own demons, he finds himself falling for her. The town is rocked when the body of Meg’s father, a man who Meg believed had abandoned her and her mother Charlene 16 years ago, turns up in a mountain cave. Nate finds himself in the middle of a high-profile murder investigation and quickly learns the killer is someone in the community. Nate must use his big-city survival instincts to solve the mystery that threatens his new life and new love. (The “Northern Lights” movie is based on the Nora Roberts book title of the same name.)
REVIEW: So my sister-in-law and I watched this today. We hadn’t read the book in years, so the killer was driving us nuts, okay it was driving me nuts, so I went and grabbed the book and looked it up.
We liked the movie, even thought a lot of the meat of the book was left out, but that is what you get when you have a made for t.v. movie based on book. If you like Nora Roberts you will probably enjoy this movie.
We give this movie a 3 out 5, however we give the eye candy (Nate with no shirt) a 5 out of 5.
