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.

In South Dakota, wildlife biologist Lil Chance is plagued by a ruthless killer who wreaks havoc on her game preserve. Her lifelong friend and former lover, P.I. Coop Sullivan, helps her protect the reserve, the animals, and her heart. While they seek the identity of the killer, they find time to rediscover their love and desire for each another. Nick Podehl narrates this romantic suspense at a steady pace. But his distant tone misses the mark in portraying the emotions that inhabit this love story. The search for the killer is told in equally unemotional tones. As Coop and Lil try to find their way back to romance, Podehl struggles to connect with the characters.
