Black Hills

As I was walking through the library I just picked this off the shelf- and didn't bother reading the back. I took a chance- and it paid off.

This was such a good book. About 1/3 of the way through, before they introduced who the bad guy really was, I was speculating who it could be..... it could have been anyone. It was fun to try and figure it out- but then they simply said who it was.

It's a suspense book- it's a romance book- It's a little mysterious.
There are about 3 or 4 steamy sex scenes- but they were easy to skip over. I don't recall much if any foul language.

This is off of the back of the book:
Lil Chance fell in love with Cooper Sullivan pretty much the first time she saw him, an awkward teenager staying with his grandparents on their cattle ranch in Montana while his parents went through a messy divorce. They spent every summer together, treking in the Black Hills, tracking cougar and falling in love. Then Cooper broke her heart and moved back to New York City. Ten years later and Cooper has given up his job in the police force to run the ranch after his grandfather is injured in a fall. Lil has stayed true to her love of cougars and of the Black Hills and opened an animal sanctuary. She has been targeted by animal rights campaigners in the past but this time someone seems intent on murder. As hikers are killed, animals mutiliated and a family member goes missing, Lil knows that she has no choice but to turn to Cooper for help in her fight for survival ...

The love conflict that Lil has gets a little drawn out- she just doesn't seem to get over her heart break and you want to shout at her "Enough already! Just get over it!!"

Other than that- great book. :)
