Even in Grundy, Alaska, its unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham,who has been openly critical of Mo's ability to adapt to life in Alaska, has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, its love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, hes worried that he might be the violent canine in question.
If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if hes not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated.

Fun, fabulous -- the best I've heard in a long while! Great characters, dialog, plot; funny, flirty, sexy and just plain fun!

This was my first Amanda Ronconi production but I had heard good things about her Jane Jameson rendition from other bloggers. However, I found the Mo's voice was flat, somewhat Southern, whine that grated. I had a hard time differentiating between the younger men's voice or some of the secondary women and Evie. Cooper's voice in particular reminded me of Christian Bale as Batman: low, growled, and very fake. Eventually I got used to it but I never quite enjoyed his parts. There were even parts where the narrator seemed to forget she was supposed to be in character and talk in a normal voice.
While I didn't enjoy the story as much as I hope, the funny moments were a wonderful break to an otherwise depressing story and brought it up a little in my estimation. Although if I still used a grading system, this would have been a definite C-. As for the narration, I don't think I will listen to another production by this narrator, which include almost all of Molly Harper's other audio titles. I don't trust that this poor production was the exception, instead of the normal.
Molly Harper moves on from vamps in KY to werewolves in AK and delivers laughs throughout. These are all great, lighthearted, comedic romances, but don't let the cartoon cover persuade you that these are for the kids. There are some adult scenes that range from R to X-rated, depending on your POV.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I love books that not only have a good story but that holds my interest throughtout. I loved this book for all that and it made me laugh out loud more than once.
Funny, engaging, satisfying
I really enjoyed this book, especially the narration by Amanda Ronconi. Her tone was pitch perfect, and got just the right amount of sarcasm in every line. I will definitely continue with the series
Hippies , werewolves , single women in the Alaskan frontier . Definite chick flick !
Saffron ,love to hate her . Irritating hippie mother .
The voice of Cooper could of had more depth .
Hippies , werewolves , single white female .
This book seems to start slow, but really picks up. The narrator is terrific and I choose this book based on her as the narrator.
Overall, I get the over invasive parents and fleeing to another place to start over, things are going well and then they improve. I totally felt invested in the characters and could see them getting together. I'd recommend as a light read and a great road book.
I listened to this book on the recommendation of Charlaine Harris at her blog. I can only say that I'm back for more! The reader was excellent and the story was fun, light, and very entertaining. I'll definitely listen to more Molly Harper, and would recommend her to anyone interested in this type of book. Just on a side note, the reader, Amanda Ronconi, reminded me very much of Ellen Degeneres.
This was the first Molly Harper book I read and after reading it, I knew Molly would be an author I read again. I loved that Mo was from my hometown in little ole MS. That is something you definitely don't hear everyday. Also, I can't say enough great things about the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. The fact that she actually do a believable southern accent is a huge plus but she also has great energy and keeps the story flowing. I highly recommend anything Molly Harper writes!
