Summary:

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.

    I'm not finished with Black Hills, but so far it's boring but willing to give it a chance.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Black Hills, in fact I was sorry when the book was over. I wanted the story to continue. The listening was made all the more enjoyable by the narration by Nick Podehl. His use of different voices for each of the characters was amazing. He is very talented. Nora Roberts story line and characters are very believable.

    The love story and murders are predictable, but the story is fabulous. I loved the story line and characters and the narrator was absolutely splendid! It is a must read/listen.

    Good Story but could have been done in 5 C-D's NOT 14. The only thing that keep me listening was the reader--he was fantastic!

    Excellent, well developed book. It would be nice to have the story & characters continue in another book.
