Jessie McQuade is just a small town Wisconsin cop when things start going screwy. What seems like a random car accident pushes her into a world where werewolves roam the streets, gorgeous professors walk around naked, and German werewolf hunters prove the most sane minds of the bunch. It's up to Jessie to try and stay ahead of the pack, before the werewolves win and nobody's left to fight them off.

I actually read "My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding" before this, and got my first taste of the author there with her short story, "Charmed by the Moon." Because I enjoyed that one so much, I decided to check out the entire series, and I was thrilled to see the two characters from that in this first offering. Even better, the book turned out to be swiftly paced, with an incredibly likable heroine, a gorgeous romantic hero, and supporting characters that leap off the page. Jessie and Will both have their insecurities, and while the suspense was mildly spoiled for me because I read that later short story about them, there were still moments when I questioned just who was a good guy and who wasn't.

I'm also tremendously relieved because it doesn't fall into the whole mate trap that so many shapeshifter/werewolf romances do. That might change for later books, which I plan to start reading as soon as I can get them, but for this one at least, it made a welcome change.
