    One thought on “Northern Deceit”

    1. Northern Deceit is the third book in a lovely series featuring Detective Louis Baker and her partner Detective Bert Hicks. When Louis gets suspended from her job, it frees her up to fly to Alaska to help Bert find his missing mother. While in Alaska Bert breaks his leg and ends up in the hospital, so its up to Louis and the local police to find his mom. I really like this series. I enjoyed being in Alaska at Christmas time in a town called "North Pole". I love the chemistry between the two detec [...]

    2. NOTHERN DECEITBy Coi Lynn Arnold Kindle $3.99Print, $12.99Richmond (NY) Detectives Louis Baker and Bert Hicks are back in their third novel. Clearly, Hicks needs help –supposedly vacationing in the Caribbean, he actually is in North Pole, Alaska (near Fairbanks). Kicked off a case in Rochester for her temper, Louis goes forth to North Pole to help Hicks find his mother, get out of jail, and mend his broken ankle. She leaves behind a shattered marriage. Weather is truly a character in this nove [...]

    3. The story resumes some months after the events of "Scalding Deceit", with Hicks and Louis temporarily not together. The separation is not doing either of them much good -- sail without boat, boat without sail -- but they are not suffering equally. Hicks is just kind of aimless and and slobby, whereas Baker has gone a bit off the rails.I'm not giving away anything that can't be guessed from the book cover when I tell you that circumstances conspire to bring them (separately) to Alaska, where a my [...]

    4. Maybe even a little more. It was a good mystery, and a lot of fun. Part of the fun was I used to live at Eielson AFB, and North Pole Alaska, where the book is set, was just outside the front gate, so I know the Village well. Two little quibbles [though it is possible these were "in-jokes"]. The book starts with an incident at "West High School." We find out later this is in Rochester NY. Anyone in Alaska knows this is the name for the very first High School in Anchorage [then called Anchorage HS [...]

    5. I received this book for free through giveaways. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I entered the giveaway because I liked the cover and had just come back from living up north for the past 10 years and was feeling nostalgic.This is my first review so I'm not sure what to write. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say that I haven't read any of the other books in this series, but I still felt like I knew the main characters. The characters are likeable and I was immedi [...]

    6. According to her bio, the author grew up in North Pole, Alaska, and the attention to detail and surrounding backs that up. I read this over a blistering summer week, and could feel the chill of winter! A riveting read with complex characters that left me wanting to find out, "What next?" for Detective Louis Baker and her partner, Bert Hicks.

    7. My favorite Baker & Hicks book yet! I think this would have been fun to read in the winter, instead of the hot summer, because I loved the amazingly accurate descriptions of a biting cold Alaska winter. Took me back to my Canadian childhood. Good plot, interesting characters, and enough suspense to keep me reading this right through dinner.

    8. I shivered through the entire reading of this book. The author does a superb job of writing the setting of Alaska and making the reader feel as though she was there. Layered characters, intricate plot, and really interesting details made this novel hard to put down. Looking forward to reading more from Cori Lynn Arnold!

    9. Cori has a great way of catching the reader with intrigue and plot. Her writing continues to develop with each book.I felt a constant chill while reading this and her description of an Alaskan winter .

    10. Northern Deceit is a pull-you-in suspense. The characters are well-developed and the setting, Alaska, is very detailed. Arnold does a great job in grabbing, and keeping, the reader's attention, making the pages fly by until the very end.
