A summer at his grandparents’ South Dakota ranch is not eleven-year-old Cooper Sullivan’s idea of a good time. But things are a bit more bearable now that he’s discovered the neighbor girl, Lil Chance, and her homemade batting cage. Each year, with Coop’s annual summer visit, their friendship deepens from innocent games to stolen kisses, but there is one shared experience that will forever haunt them: the terrifying discovery of a hiker’s body. As the seasons change and the years roll by, Lil remains steadfast to her aspiration of becoming a wildlife biologist and protecting her family land, while Coop struggles with his father’s demand that he attend law school and join the family firm. Twelve years after they last walked together hand in hand, fate has brought them back to the Black Hills when the people and things they hold dear need them most. When small pranks and acts of destruction escalate into the heartless killing of Lil’s beloved cougar, memories of an unsolved murder in these very hills have Coop springing to action to keep Lil safe. Lil and Coop know the natural dangers that lurk in the wild landscape of the Black Hills. Now they must work together to unearth a killer of twisted and unnatural instincts who has singled them out as prey. Download and start listening now!

    " I love how it started. Nora Roberts really brings out the characters. But, i was disappointed. I expected more mystery. More wow. More whamp. Or whatever you call it. But non the less, a good book is what you can't deny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 2/6/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/25/2014

    " Very enjoyable read from Nora Roberts. It had a heartbreaking and at the same time uplifting childhood sweethearts type love story and a good suspense plot. As per usual Nora also included a seemingly well researched storyline pertaining to the profession of her main character, Lil Chance. Lil was owner of an animal sanctuary in a beautiful small town named Black Hills. Definitely worth a read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patti | 5/13/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 5/5/2011

    " Nora Roberts hit a homerun out of the park with this one; no gratuitous sex; a great plot; great characters, etc.. The only thing is, I figured out how the bad guy would get it in the end about 1/8th of the way in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/4/2011

    " A very enjoyable book. The plot was different enough to make it interesting. The setting is at an animal preserve in South Dakota. The plot brought the animals into the story. I hope there is another book with these characters.....must see if they marry and have children. "
