Romance anyone?

book jacketHave you ever read a romance before? I used to read them years ago and quite enjoyed them. I think romance novels get a bad rap, to be honest. One of our more popular romance authors is Nora Roberts; actually she's hugely popular! Her romantic suspense novels go over very well with our romance readers. I chose Black Hills because it sounds pretty good. I'm going to give it a try. Who couldn't use a bit of romance AND suspense in their reading choice? Here is a bit about the storyline:

Deep into the rugged Black Hills of South Dakota, the shadows keep secrets, hunters stalk the land, and a childhood friendship matures into an adult passion. 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. Twelve years after they last walked together hand in hand, fate has brought them back to the Black Hills where the people and things they hold most dear need them most.  When small pranks and acts of destruction escalate into the heartless killing of Lil's beloved cougar, recollections of an unsolved murder in these very hills have Coop springing to action to keep Lil safe.
