Howling at the Moon (Tales of an Urban Werewolf, Bk 1)
Howling at the Moon - Tales of an Urban Werewolf, Bk 1 Author:Karen MacInerney ROMANCE IS ABOUT TO GET A LITTLE HAIRY — 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 month has a ... more »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.« less
This is a fast moving fun romp full of werewolves, witches, ghosts and more. The end still leaves unanswered questions that will hopefully be answered in the next two books that I am very impatient for! Other than that, the characters are well developed. The plot is believable.

Helpful Score: 3
This is the first book I've read by this author (but not my first paranormal) and I found it difficult to get into. Too many story lines and too many cliches (both in what the characters say and how they are portrayed) made the story a bit ho-hum for me. That some of the scenes don't seem to fit with the main story is distracting and it just fell flat for me in the descriptions of the relationships between the characters.
The author sets up the next book in the series with an abrupt ending, but even with that I have to say that I'm not very interested in finding out what happens next.
I thought this was a fun and easy read and tht the characters were nice and easy to like. I picked up two junk books before I decided on this one and Im glad to say it made the cut, I will be adding it to my collection and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
