I have read a lot of Nora Roberts. With her I always find it can go either way.
This is a book that did not go the right way.
Let's start with the romance. There is no romance!!
2 kids become best friends. When they are still kids they fall in love, get into a relationship.
Breakup without a real justified reason. Then years later are in the same town and automatically drift back together with no real romance, no drama . nothing. Yawn.
There is a serial killer. They discovered the serial killer when they were kids. Same killer is here.
Lil is the target. He keeps attacking things, sending messages. Lil and coop keep taking precautions.
Nothing moves forward. Finally killer is killed.
Even the climax was so predictable.
SPOILER
They introduce a cat that bonds with her. It keeps following her, comes back to her.
Finally when she is in the killers grasp, the cat tracks her, shows the way, kills the killer.
Yawn!! The minute the cat was introduced and the author talks about the bonding, we know the cat will save the day. ( )

Lil Chance and Cooper Sullivan met as children when Coop came from New York City to spend every summer at his grandparents ranch in South Dakota. Each year, with Coop’s annual summer visit, their friendship went from innocent games to stolen kisses. But one experience would always haunt them: the grim discovery of a hiker’s body.

Lil rehabilitates wild cats, including cougars, jaguars and tigers, She has spent her life trying to recreate as much of their natural environment as she can so they can live out their lives in a safe environment. Some of the best parts of the book are the stories of how each animal comes to be at the refuge.

Predominately a romance novel, Lil and Coop’s on-and-off romance was a bit too drawn out. As usual, Nora is excellent at filling her book with both lead characters and secondary characters that are vivid and recognizable to her readers. I loved the big cat wildlife reserve setting, I thought it was a unique aspect of the book and it made the small annoyances disappear in a wave of kitty love.

I am not a fan of romance novels, but picked this one up because it was set in south dakota. This book adds mystery with the romance and turned out to be a pretty good book after all. Even tho they gave away who was stalking her about half way thru the book, which only left the question of how he would get caught. It still ended up being better than I thought it would be. Kinda slow moving at times. Not sure if I would read it again or not. That remains to be seen. ( )

Synopsis:
While visiting his grandparents on a ranch in North Dakota, Cooper Sullivan meets Lily Chance and they begin a friendship that develops into romance years later. After circumstances drive them apart, Lil fulfills her childhood dream of establishing a refuge for large cats and Coop becomes a detective and then a PI. Now, Coop has returned and they rekindle their romance. However, their path is not without obstacles for they must get past Lil’s trust issues as well as the threat of a serial killer who has decided to make Lil his next victim.

Review:
The backstory regarding the animal refuge and the large cats is very enjoyable as are the descriptions of the scenery. While the book begins very well, I found that the middle dragged on a bit until the build-up of tension at the very end. While I did like the main characters and the development of their relationship, I felt that Lil’s trust issues were a bit unfounded and did not warrant her coldness toward Coop.
Farley is definitely my favorite character in the book. His loyalty, honesty and ability to love despite the circumstances of his upbringing make him one of the best characters Nora has ever written.
Recommendation: A enjoyable read overall and I recommend it to Nora fans without hesitation. ( )

an interesting read, the supernatural elements all seeming very matter of fact and the story flowed. You got to find out about Paha Sapa from his childhood, through to his descendants, you got a sense of place, both in the Indian days and in the 30's America days. It all felt a bit dreamlike, I can't say that I really know why Paha Sapa set his goal to be the blowing up of the Rushmore heads or (spolier alert) why he failed to do so in the end, but the story was intersting nevertheless.
