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. Even horseback riding isn’t as awful as Coop thought it would be. 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, Lil stays steadfast to her dreams 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 most dear need them most.

An investigator in New York, Coop recently left his fastpaced life to care for his aging grandparents and the ranch he has come to call home. Though the memory of his touch still haunts her, Lil has let nothing stop her dream of opening the Chance Wildlife Refuge, but something . . . or someone . . . has been keeping a close watch. When small pranks and acts of destruction escalate into the heartless killing of Lil’s beloved cougar, recollections of an unsolved murder in these very hills have Coop springing to action to keep Lil safe.

Lil and Coop both know the natural dangers that lurk in the wild landscape of the Black Hills. But now they must work together to unearth a killer of twisted and unnatural instincts who has singled them out as prey.

Oh it was about time for Nora Roberts to write a good book since the last ones didn't quite do it for me. This one is amazing. A nice story that starts with the characters being kids and continues until they're adults. It was nice to see the developement of their relationship. The story about cougars, pumas, jaguars and the refuge was very interesting and made me want to pick up a shovel and help during feeding. The whacko "Native" is the villain of this story and truly scary. That'll teach me not to go hiking the Black Hills on my own. If I ever get the chance. I truly liked the family dynamics and the friendships in this story and am really glad about having read this book.

This will be part of my perm coll as all Nora Roberts books are, but I'd be glad to lend it someone in "need".
