Werewolves can be dangerous if you get in their way, but they’ll leave you alone if you are careful. They are very good at hiding their natures from the human population, but I’m not human. I know them when I meet them, and they know me, too.

Mercy Thompson’s sexy next-door neighbor is a werewolf.

She’s tinkering with a VW bus at her mechanic shop that happens to belong to a vampire.

But then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself … and her connection to the world of things that go bump in the night is about to get her into a whole lot of trouble.

Read for Fun!
Challenges: TBR, Read for Fun
Overall Rating: 4.75
Character Rating: 5.00
Story Rating: 4.50

NOTE: I realize I am late to the Mercy Thompson series so this review will be no big revelation to the 100s of you that told me to read them.

First Thought When Finished: Oh My GOSH! Y’all were all right and I totally bow to your greatness!

What I Loved: Well just about everything! I know, I know that is totally not specific especially for something I gave a 4.75. Alright here we go! I loved the characters! They were so well written and very well-rounded. No one is black/white instead they run the emotional and attitude rainbow. Some of the best I have read! World-Building was excellent. I never felt lost or out of touch. In fact, it felt very organic and real.

What I Liked: Patricia Briggs has a writing style that draws you into the story quickly and never lets you go! The pacing was excellent.

Why it didn’t get a 5: Love Triangle–hate them! Even the hint of one makes my skin crawl.

Final Thought: I am really hooked!

(I am going to start adding Recipes to things that I ate while reading.ย  I blame Mercy for making me crave sweets while reading)

  5. Yummy, homemade pralines to eat over icecream. Thanks for the recipe. I love this serie, so fun. I like the banter between Mercy and Adam. I like the pack and it just gets better and better. Glad you are loving the gang as well.
