Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.
If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .
This is such a nice, cute, fun, reality buster. I enjoyed reading this book because it didn't take itself too seriously and was serious enough to keep me interested. I think Molly Harper has a beautiful flare for characters, I can tell she loves writing them and I can feel their personalities and different...textures...for lack of a better word, vividly.
I enjoyed the love/hate relationship that Cooper and Mo shared in the beginning, it's a classic tale but one everyone loves if done right, and Ms. Harper does it right. I enjoyed reading about Mo's day-to-day life because it took me out of my own so well that I felt the chill from the Alaskan air and I smelled her baking. This book is an experience, and I enjoy that in a book.
The only complaint I had about this book is that Ms. Harper could get a bit long winded in a few sections. I found myself zoning out when she explained her background in the beginning. It happens and that was really the only thing I could say even remotely neutral about this book. I will definitely be on the look out for more Molly Harper.
