the editor and jack of all trades for the Woodbine Dispatch Andrea has little choice but to work very closely with SeanThough I m still a little wary as a relatively new blogger of reading debut works by new authors when Angela Campbell reuested I read and review Cry Wolf I accepted I m truly honored when an author thinks to ask me to read and review though wary because you never know if the experience will end well for botharties I m happy to say this experience ends well for me at least I will be honest and say that though I m totally into the werewolf and vampire craze going on now I was a little skeptical about a story of a town that reported seeing a real werewolf I wasn t sure it would be my cup of tea But the writing in this book is so well done that I couldn t help but get drawn into the story from age one I was totally invested in the investigation for the Woodbine Werewolf I shivered at the scary and tense moments and I bit my nails guessing if there really was a real werewolf or not Very good suspense writing I was eager to find out about Sean and Andrea s ast together and separately and I desperately wanted them to have their happily ever after Andrea had been hurt retty deeply by words Sean had said to her in a moment of high stress and it was all the crushing because of the feelings she harbored for him What I appreciated about their relationship is that they both worked to overcome the obstacles in their way because they just couldn t deny the love and care they had for one another The love happened gradually and realistically and the steam though mild was very well written as well If you re looking for a sweet romantic aranormal ish suspenseful read with great writing definitely check out Cry Wolf It s a worthy debut by what I believe is a romising new authorA little bit about the authorAngela Campbell is an overachiever with a soft spot for men who dress funny Superman Charlie Chaplin Draculashe loves them all and don t get her started

obsessing over a good book She currently channels all of her enthusiasm and geekiness into blogging and fiction writing Her greatest ambition is to write a Pulitzer Les Ténébreuses - Tome I - La Fin d'un monde prize winning novel butesky little genre fiction keeps leaping into her imagination screaming Write me Write me A mild mannered and award winning reporter with almost 15 years experience as

writing supervisor and furry best friend Dusti who just so happens to be a catI ll be keeping an eye out for her next book and definitely checking it outFind my reviews atage 317 Andrea Lockhart went from being an award winning journalist for the Chicago Tribune to hunting werewolves for a tabloid in Podunk South Carolina If that wasn t ego deflating enough she runs into her one time college crush turned arch nemesis while she is hanging upside down after being caught in a snare trap Determined to keep the upper hand this time Andrea doesn t acknowledge the fact that she remembers Sean Hunter and he sure doesn t seem to connect the sophisticated together rofessional woman with the chubby introvert he used to torment in college Sean Hunter is the first to admit he was a bastard in college but he had his own issues he was working through He is fascinated by the changes in Andrea and makes no secret of the fact that he wants to renew old friendships If only that esky werewolf would uit showing up he might be able to work his own brand of magicWell this turned into a very traumatic and heartbreaking book for me UGH MY CHEST STILL HURTS BUT I CANT TELL My chest still hurts but I cant tell why without giving spoilers Just remember I live with wolves everyday and they are very near and dear to my heart The fact that Ms Campbell can ull that much emotion from a reader is a true testament of her skill as a writer and while extremely ainful for me it bodes well for the rest of her audience who may not share my overdeveloped empathy for wild animals Overall this was a very entertaining story and had a relatively cheerful tone Yes it was about a scary creature stalking the unwary citizens of a small rural South Carolina town but it wasn t overly dark It was mostly a fun book with laudable interesting characters It captured my interest from the very first and held it until the very endWhat I found most striking about Cry Wolf was that it was the talent of the author that made it such a excellent book and not the graphic content Some books hold readers attention merely by shock factor like a car wreck Cry Wolf was not graphically explicit in either the sexual content or the gore factor yet I was totally enthralled The heroine Andrea exceeded my reuirements in all areas something that almost never happens Her character really impressed me to no end I had not one eye twitch moment with Andrea in fact most of the time I was actively cheering her on The snark uotient in the dialogue was than gracious and the hero was than smexy Would it have hurt my feelings to have added a bit smut to the story Nooo but then I m a The Elephants Journey perv like that It still didn t take away from the story which still contained a very strong romantic thread I am completely confident of my recommendation of this book and know with 100% certainty that fans of a good story will enjoy this You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading Romance Cry Wolf is Angela Campbell s debut novel and it s a cute sweet contemporary romance with a little werewolf tossed in to mix things up I was hoping that this was the beginning to a series given the ending on that later but after checking out her webpage I think it s a stand alone novel Either way you ll definitely enjoy this book out just in time for HalloweenAndrea Lockheart is a reporter for the tabloid The Naked Truth and her editor has sent her to investigate rumors of werewolf sightings in Woodbine South Carolina She certainly isn t expecting to run into Sean Hunter former senior editor of her universityaper He s the Woodbine Sklaven für Wutawia + Gauner mit der 'Goldenen Hand' paper s editor now and Andrea isn t thrilled that she has to work with him since he said some cruel remarks to her when theyarted ways in college She d always hoped that their next meeting would involve some sort of acknowledgement of her stellar career rather than his discovering her hanging upside down from a makeshift werewolf trap Sean doesn t immediately recognize Andi Lockheart from college This new Andi Is Stunning And Clearly Not Interested is stunning and clearly not interested his help but he owes her an apology after being such a jerk in college Sean s move to Woodbine to be with his sister and her kids is a far cry from writing for the New York Times but he s definitely enjoying the slower ace of his new life especially since it allows him to spend time helping Andrea with her investigation When Andrea experiences her own werewolf sighting she and Sean begin to take the rumors werewolf sighting she and Sean begin to take the rumors and the two find themselves spending and time together Can the two find a future together searching for the truth about the local werewolfI really enjoyed the romance in this novel The majority of the book focuses on the relationship between Sean and Andrea rather than the werewolf of the title and that s art of its appeal Andrea is a compelling heroine with a difficult Changing Face of the Hero past She s a very talented and hardworking writer despite writing about celebrities for a tabloid and her sharedast with Sean is an awkward one that threatens to undermine her hard won self confidence when the two meet again Sean is one sexy editor and he manages to redeem himself from his being a total jerk in college His focus on his family and concern for Andrea demonstrate that his changes are sincere The werewolf aspect of the novel was interesting as well I like that Andrea starts out doubting the veracity of the claims and gradually begins to believe in Andrea Lockhart's job as a reporter for cheesy tabloid The Naked Truth isn't exactly where she thought her journalism career would end up She's determined to make the best of it but when her editor sends her to Woodbine South Carolina to investigate a werewolf sighting Andrea decides the ridiculous assignme. He sightings as her investigation continues I think making the romance the central focus of the novel was articularly effective and the werewolf mystery starts to It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life pick up about halfway into the book which causes theace to Lignin Biodegradation pick up Unfortunately the werewolf mystery wasn t completely resolved to my satisfaction leaving us with a bit of a cliffhanger I liked that the romance between Andrea and Sean was tied up nicely but I wanted explanation about the actual werewolf Initially I assumed that this was the first book in a series and we would learn in subseuent books but as I mentioned earlier Ms Campbell s webpage indicates that this is a stand alone novel and her next book will be in a series set in a different world Cry Wolf is only 87000 words long so there s definitely room for background about the werewolf and the open ending definitely detracted from my enjoyment of the book Overall however this was a really sweet romance and I very much enjoyed it I liked Ms Campbell s insights into the world of journalism and her experience writing in that world has translated well into fiction writing I ll definitely be looking for of her work in the futureI received this book for review from Carina Press through NetGalley You know what makes this book even fun to read It s actual release date is Oct 31st I got an e arc copy from net galley WOW I m glad I did I m so excited to tell you about this book Here I thought it would be a typical romance book My first thoughts after reading the blurb was that the reporter guy that s following her around was the werewolf But NO WAY This is a TOTALLY DIFFERENT type of werewolf story I was at the edge of my seat for the whole thing I couldn tut it down I finally caved and fell asleep at 1 am the other night only to be woken up by the image of this very werewolf standing in front of my car just looking at me and it was as freaky in my dream as it was in this book HAOk the book starts off with lol Ok first of all we meet Andrea Lockhart and she s a reporter for the Naked Truth tabloids a nationwide magazine They sent her to this little town because when they were going over i Cry Wolf is fun and sweet romantic mystery with a Pure Chance paranormal ish twist Andrea Andi Lockhart is a reporter for a famous tabloid magazine who is sent to the small town of Woodbine SC to investigate the local werewolf sightings Unfortunately she finds that her old competitor and the man who beat her out for editor of the college newspaper is now living in Woodbine and runs the townaper As a young man Sean Hunter felt that Andi was too soft and said some cruel things to her for what he thought was her own good Now Sean s the last The Lady and the Lionheart person Andi wants to see or work with but she has to if she s to crack the story and find out the truth about the Woodbine Werewolf I wasleasantly surprised by Cry Wolf I am a huge fan of aranormal books Give me a vampire or demon and I ll read it It was a nice change of ace to read a book that had was about werewolves but wasn t necessarily a aranormal story The lot was well written and well Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church paced and I was totally sucked into the mystery I wanted to find out if the werewolf was real just as much as Andi did I loved the romance in this story Andi s got a big chip on her shoulder from what happened with Sean in college I don t really blame her at first Sean s words were cruel and to the insecure young woman that Andi was I can see how much it would have hurt Even though it s been years and Andi is a successful journalist now she still feels like she has something torove to Sean and A (kinda) Country Christmas perhaps to herself Sean on the other hand isn t the big time editor he set out to be Seeing Andi makes him realize that a jerk he was in college The years have changed Sean and he s no longer the selfish ambitious man he used to be Actions speak louder than words and Sean does everything he can to help Andi and keep her from becoming werewolf bait during the investigation As rivals Sean and Andi have that great antagonistic chemistry that I love to read While Sean and Andi have great chemistry the loves scenes themselves areretty mild Don t get me wrong they did get hot and heavy a few times but just as things were really heating upit would fast forward to the next morning Personally I refer a little smut in my romance books but those who like their hanky anky on the lighter side will enjoy this I had a great time reading this The small town setting was erfect for the mysterious werewolf sightings It was fun following Andi and Sean on their investigation and meeting all of the uirky townspeople And the story definitely keeps you guessing right up to the very end A fun debut novel from Angela Campbell I am excited to see what she comes up with nextAn e ARC of this book was rovided free of charge by NetGalleycom This in no way affected my opinion or review of this book The Devil s in the DetailsThe grass is green The sky is blue There is no such thing as werewolves Those are just some of the absolutes in tabloid reporter Andrea Lockhart s world regardless of the stories covered in The Naked Truth the rag she works for Then the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 photo of some mysterious creature in some backwards town on the other side of the country came across her editor s desk and next thing Andrea knows she s traipsing through the woods of Woodbine South Carolina looking for a creature that most assuredly does not existThe investigation into the local legend of the werewolf doesn t start off as she expected She gets caught in a hunter s snare trussed up like a wild boar and comes face to face with the mostainful memory from her college days Sean Hunter The ratfink she d gone to college with took journalism courses with and who had beat her out for the job of editor of the school journalism courses with and who had beat her out for the job of editor of the school aper She had been overweight and mousy back then and she had a huge crush on him Right up until he d verbally shredded her after he got her jobNow Sean is living in Woodbine and is editor of the town s weekly circulation To make matters worse not only is he intent on accompanying her on her assignment but he s doing one of his own on her investigation into the werewolf that she is still uite ositive does not exist This Halloween nightmare of an assignment just keeps getting better and betterThe conversation a kind word for an ugly truth that Sean had with the incredibly intelligent if socially awkward Andrea Lockhart back in college is still one of his greatest regrets He d been cruel if well intentioned and he knew it Now she s come to Woodbine lookingwowconsiderably different than she did back in the old days She s gorgeous Poised Cool as a cucumber And she obviously wants nothing to do with himHe thought they d been friends once if very very casual ones He certainly wouldn t mind becoming much closer than friends now Her job doesn t make sense though She d been on the fast track of a major journalism career at one time Working for an exploitative tabloid is about as far removed from that as she could get and still be in the business He should know He s fairly far removed from the beat of his own high Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism powered career as a reporter for a major New York CityaperHe has his reasons for that though Sean is sure Andrea has hers as well He intends to discover what those areas well as a myriad of other details about the amazing womanas he helps her in her investigation into a werewolf that he s not entirely sure he believes exists Though he doesn t exactly disbelieve it eitherThe grass is green The sky is blue Sean Hunter is even appealing than he used to be There is no such thing as werewolves These are some of Andrea s absolutes Until she comes face to fangs with something that threatens to rip one of those absolutes away from her forever And it ain t the grass the sky or the hot editor with the nice smileI loved the concept of this book I thought it was great the X Files esue investigation into the Woodbine Werewolf sightings the two reporters ferreting out evidence for and against the Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory possibility the developingroof of something existing the certainty that it couldn t Charming the Firefighter possibly be a werewolf the worry that it was Every element of thatlotline worked uite nicely for me and the investigative aspects were cohesive logical believable and tightly woven than in many romantic suspense books i ve readunfortunately the romantic suspense books I ve readUnfortunately the characters gave me some trouble and I struggled mightily with the execution of the romance arc throughout the book I also had some issues with the style of writing in the narrative in laces and got a little frustrated with the over telling that bogged down the flow of the story and muddied the watersAndrea troubled me throughout the book She was not light on backstory or defining characteristics tons of them were tossed out but they never seemed to be. Nt will be her last Until she meets Sean Hunter The last time she saw Sean he had just beat her out for the osition of editor of their college newspaper and told her she'd never make it as a reporter Given his grand ambitions she's shocked to find him editing the Woodbine Weekly Once they start competing ,
