Wednesday Review: Howling at the Moon by Karen MacInerney

The heroine is a born werewolf who knows nothing about werewolves and thinks her worse problem is turning furry on the full moon.

Somebody knows her secret. Can Sophie keep her wolfish alter ego under wraps?

Sophie Garou seems to have it all: a great job at a prestigious accounting firm, a closet that rivals a Nordstrom showroom, and a terrific boyfriend who isn’t afraid to use the “M” word.

There’s just one little itty-bitty problem: Sophie is a werewolf – and HER time of the month has a whole new meaning.

Needless to say, life among yummy flesh-and-blood humans is no piece of steak… er, cake!, but regular doses of wolfsbane tea and a mother who runs a magic shop have helped Sophie keep her paranormal pedigree under wraps.

Still, when a sexy, golden-eyed werewolf prowls into town, Sophie finds herself struggling to keep her animal impulses in check – not to mention trying to keep things on track with her super hot (and super HUMAN) lawyer boyfriend.

What’s more, someone is threatening to expose Sophie for what she really is.

And when her mother is accused of selling a poison-laced potion, Sophie must sniff out a culprit before the fur hits the fan.

Amazon Review

By Snowgoddess

This book reads more like a mystery than a Shifter novel.

It’s a very different take on shifters.

The heroine is a born werewolf who knows nothing about werewolves and thinks her worse problem is turning furry on the full moon.

She’s an accountant and tries to ignore the werewolves although she’s never met any until her Romney witch Mother is arrested for killing a Councilman by poisoning a love potion she made for him.

In other words, this is a fascinating story that’s funny, supernatural, and grounded in a human world.

It’s not sex-driven, but it does have romance.

All in all, I devoured it. Highly recommend it if you like a good read with no bad language and no X-rated sex scenes, just excellent storytelling and character development.

Amazon Review

By Charlotte Salsbury

I read this series years ago and was so excited to see that it is back. This author is amazing at placing you in the minds and troubles of the characters.

This is a little spicier than her other series (The Gray Whale Inn mysteries–another great read!), but nothing explicit or too raunchy.

The bumps along the way (I mean, what kind of read would it be without some twists and turns?), almost seem commonplace as the character is so well developed.

Sophie is successful in her career, her love life, her wardrobe, and at keeping her dirty (hairy) little secret.

Sophie is a werewolf, living in the middle of a big city, on the fast track to partner in a prestigious accounting firm, dating a hunky lawyer, with a mother who practices in the paranormal and provides her with concoctions to keep Sophie from transforming into her furry side at inconvenient moments.

The scrapes and razor-burns are all part of keeping her world in balance.

Living with the resentment of her father sending her mother away with the half-human, half-werewolf progeny, Sophie resists anything to do with her paternal heritage.

She has no insight into the dark and veiled world of werewolves, except the unsavory details contained within the pages of books she has read. Those are enough to seal her determination to try to deny that part of her DNA growing up.

The confusion and anger cause Sophie’s hackles to rise as werewolves begin popping up and intruding on her human life that she has worked so hard to build.

Her animal instincts, which she has tried to suppress for so long, are unleashed with the uncomfortable experiences.

As Sophie gets dragged into that unknown world, with a culture and hierarchy all its own, she struggles to make sense of all that she thought she knew.

Follow Sophie through this rollicking trilogy as she navigates the twists and turns of an ancient werewolf code with a modern spin. The inner conflict, as well as external influences, send Sophie to question everything she once believed as truth.

An excellent series that is hard to put down!
