Title: The Hunting Grounds

I have to admit serial killer killing in national parks had me agreeing to the book before I even knew who the author was.
The Katee Roberts created two story lines for readers to follow a group a young hikers who can't seem to get past the past and second chance romance Maggie/Vic. The first few chapters the author caught readers up with everyone past but soon the past kept being brought up to the point readers will be pulled out of the story.
The story suspense would be well paced and than slow down only for the author to rush readers into scenes that had no building up. I even found myself finishing the book wondering if I had skipped a few pages. The best way I can put it is the author had a word count and she was running low.
I am interested in reading more by the author as she develops her voice in the Romantic suspense genre.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy.
For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.
Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.
For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.
As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

About The Author:
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it 'a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension." When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
