I was just browsing around online one day and came across this book. I thought well it sounds interesting maybe I will try reading the 1st chapter from the website. Right away I loved how the young boy "Cooper" would explain his feelings how he felt betrayed by his parents sending him out to the middle of nowhere "deadwood" in black hills with his grandparents he barely knew. I thought well maybe one day I'd get it, just put it on my list.

I noticed the book on sale when I was out and thought what the heck I'll try it. I am so happy I picked this book up! What an amazing story! The characters were just so loveable and down to earth, just like "your own family".

It starts with "Cooper" being shipped off to his grandparents out in the middle of nowhere because his mom and dad were going on vacation (i.e. a troubled marriage). He hated this because he was a city boy from New York. What was he to do? He couldn't even think about being without his TV and video games, let alone all the Yankee games he would miss, he got to see all of them because his father owned box seats. All they had at his grandparents were horses and cows and dirt and stuff. That summer changed his life in so many ways! In the beginning "Coop and Lil" would have to meet; something he was not looking forward to but thought he would have to endure it because his grandparents were friends with her parents and he would be nothing but respectful for them. This girl it turns out isn't so bad, she is pretty good at playing ball and isn't like any other girls back home. They immediately become friends and intend to stay that way. So much happens in the book as the story follows Cooper and his "black hills" family from childhood into their teens and then into their 30's. This book is definitely a must have.

Black Hills was my "beach read" this summer, I guess. Reading it, I thought it was just like the Nora Roberts' movie adaptations I've watched this past year: romance, woman-in-jeopardy, thrilling resolution when there is not much time or pages left. And there is nothing wrong with that, is there?

I've always been a Nora Roberts fan...and have bought and read all her books. As the years go by I find I'm less and less interested in Nora's books. Black Hills was a pretty boring book. I had a hard time finishing it...put me to sleep everytime I picked it up. I'm glad I didn't waste my money on the hardcover and waited until it came out in paperback to buy it. Nora's writing is definately lacking something these days.

Starts good... gets progressively worse as it goes along.

It's a pretty standard Nora Roberts book, overall pretty well written, but it drags in parts and is way too rambling at times. This book really could have used a bit more editing to cut down on some of the long drawn out parts about the animals and to get Lil to grow up a bit faster. The first part of the book was better for Lil and Cooper's relationship and they were more interesting characters; adult Lil gets very tiresome with her self-pity and her crankiness towards Cooper and the "you broke my heart, blah, blah, blah" stuff over and over and over and over like a broken record... it makes her an immature and almost unlikeable character at times. Lil is so tiresome and whiny that I don't know why Coop didn't consider himself lucky to have escaped her when he was younger and just keep running in the opposite direction.

Usually I warm up to Nora's characters more than in this book; they're my favourite part of a Nora book. But I also had a hard time warming up to the secondary characters in this book too. They were all pretty "blah". I was kind of relieved when the book was finally over.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 12 2009
Format: Hardcover
"I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers." -- 2 Corinthians 11:26

Black Hills has many attractive qualities for readers. You'll relive your first loves, learn about rescuing and taking care of exotic animals, feel chilled by a remorseless predator, and feel warmed by devoted love. If you don't know the Black Hills, you'll probably decide that you want to visit.

The book's drawback is that it feels a little over programmed. There's more romance than a mystery or a crime story usually has. There's more crime than most romances have. The sophisticated women in the story are written about as though they are so smart. After the first hundred pages, I thought I was reading about some characters rather than feeling like I was living inside the story. But regardless, I enjoyed the trip.

I liked the Lil Chance character. I suggest that Ms. Roberts bring her back . . . but don't have so many relatively hapless male figures in the plot.

If you are like me, this book will, however, keep you up late . . . in my case on consecutive nights.
