The couple's relationship is tested when Meg's long-missing father turns up dead

Audience Reviews for Northern Lights

Mainly watched this one out of curiosity to see if Leann Rimes can actually act. Can she? Well... Kind of. The whole movie is extremely b-grade, so for the feel of it and the level it aims at, I would say yes. For a big screen movie - probably not any time soon!
This is a thriller based on a Nora Roberts book. I haven't read this particular one, so I can't say if it's a good adaptation or not. It doesn't especially make me want to run out and read the book either.
However, for a tv movie on a boring day, you may find this one acceptable.

Maybe I am not critical enough, but I didn't mind this movie. It has all the normal aspects of a entertainment-type movie. It has mystery as Nate tries to solve a murder; it has the required love-interest between Nate and Meg. It has parades and gun battles - no car chases though. All in all a stock Lifetime-type movie.

Surprising ending - it was not who I expected it to be.
