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.
I love love love anything Nora Roberts writes!!! This book is one of the best I've read. There is just enough of a sexual tension between the two main characters. I was on the edge of my seat, holding my breath at every turn of the page as I got closer and closer to the end that would pleasantly surprise me.
