Tribute, Northern Lights and High Noon Movies based on Nora Roberts' Novels
Nora Roberts is a prolific author of romantic mystery and suspense novels. She also writes novels in the science fiction and paranormal genre, which I enjoy immensely.
The Lifetime Network has made some of Nora Roberts novels into movies which are available on DVD. Some of the Nora Roberts movies that I enjoyed are Tribute, Northern Lights and High Noon, although there are several more out now and there maybe more in the works for the future.

This suspense stars Brittany Murphy, Diana Scarwid, Jason Lewis and Tippi Hedren. Cilla, a former child star turned house renovator, buys and moves into her famous grandmother's farmhouse in Virginia. As the renovation proceeds, she begins to have dark nightmares about her grandmother's death (supposedly of an overdose) 30 years before. Her neighbor, Ford, both comforts and protects her when the dark dreams turn into real danger.
Tribute Movie on DVD
I enjoyed both the book and movie version of Tribute. The strong female character and handsome but a little geeky graphic novelist was a great combination.

If you are a Nora Robert suspense fan, then you should also read the book that the movie was based on. There are also audio versions which are great for long trips in the car.

Of the three, Northern Lights was my favorite. There's just something about Alaska that has always thrilled me.
When it warms up in Alaska the wildlife gets busy. These hummingbirds are so cool.

Nora Roberts' High Noon Synopsis
Nora Roberts' High Noon is a suspense starring Cybill Shepherd, Emilie de Ravin and Ivan Sergei. Expert hostage negotiator Lieutenant Phoebe McNamara is thrust into a fight for her life when she begins getting threatening messages from a deranged killer, who is often heard whistling the theme song to High Noon. As if dealing with an agoraphobic mother and raising a young daughter isn't hard enough. At a hostage negotiation, she meets bar owner, Duncan Swift, who becomes a part of her complicated life.
Original High Noon Movie
The killer in Nora Roberts' High Noon is fixated on Gary Cooper's character in the original version. I found it interesting to go back and watch the old movie co-starring Grace Kelly again.
