ARC Review: The Hunting Grounds by Katee Robert

The Hunting Grounds is book two in the Hidden Sins series by Katee Roberts but fret not it can be read as a standalone. I have read several Katee Roberts books and I have to say I like this one more than any of the other I have read. I really enjoyed the plot, I loved the setting, and the characters were well written. I loved the whodunit it surprised me, the fact that I couldn’t make a guess impressed me. I love the mountains and love it when books have the majority of their setting in the forest, Katee’s active setting was great I could picture what they saw and what they experienced. 

Maggie Gaines believes she failed so spectacularly at being an FBI agent that she left and isolated herself in a job that requires the minimum amount of social interaction, she became a Forest Ranger up in the Glazier National Park. She figured she was as far away from murder as she could get until it found her. Vic Sutherland was Maggie’s partner and the senior agent in charge he doesn’t blame Maggie for her emotional breakdown that lead to her quitting, it was a tough case even for him. It’s been eight years since she left and he hasn’t stopped thinking about her and now he’s not prepared to see how much she has changed since she last saw her, and that one kiss they shared. 

Maggie was surprised that it was Vic that came instead of one of the local agents, he is part of the BAU and the dead body discovered in her park matches the MO of two other bodies he’s found in other National Parks, they were shot with arrows and gutted like game. Soon after he arrives another body is found, one who was part of a group that has now gone missing. Maggie and Vic work together in the park while Vic partner tracks down leads in town but soon Maggie and Vic are targets from this hunter. Meanwhile Vic and Maggie realize the attraction they both felt years ago is still there only now there is nothing in the way of them forming a relationship, they want to take it slow but the sexual chemistry between them is too strong to slow them down. They just have to take down this hunter before the hunter takes one of them down first.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this one. Maggie had a lot to overcome personally and Vic was there to help here gain her self-confidence back and find where she needed to be. Maggie isn’t one of those stupid heroines who go off by herself, well she does but she’s smart about it she texts and tells Vic what’s happening and she’s doing it was just crap luck that he didn’t see them sooner. She is still a little annoying at times but that’s just who she is, mixed with the issues she has to work through. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
