Sophie Garou is an up-and-coming accountant with a bright future...and a huge list of problems! Her mother, a witch, has been arrested for the murder of a well-known politician; someone is anonymously sending Sophie packages, which contain stuff that tells Sophie someone knows her secret and the Equinox is coming. Why is she concerned about the Equinox, you ask? Well, she’s a werewolf and four times a year, during the Equinox, she heads to her vacation cabin, does her “change” and heads home but it looks like she’ll be a bit too busy this time to take off. Oh! There’s also a new hunky, male werewolf in town! How Sophie handles all of this turmoil in her life, along with trying to do her job, keep her secret from her boyfriend and her best friend and avoid the “packette” is a terrific hoot with some serious laugh-out-loud moments that are sure to please!
Howling at the Moon (Tales of an Urban Werewolf Book 1) by Karen MacInerney is a fun tale of a woman who faces what life throws at her. Hey, nobody said she had to like it! I was impressed with Ms. MacInerney’s wit – this book has several laugh-out-loud moments and a host of most enjoyable characters. The one complaint I have is Sophie’s reaction to Tom, while supposedly being committed to Heath. I understood her desire to talk to Tom and learn about herself and werewolves but no matter the attraction, she should have controlled herself better. I lost respect for her, as I would any heroine. However, despite this, I can’t wait for the next book in this wonderfully refreshing series!
