Publisher's Summary

The last thing Colin McDowell wants is to inherit his Aunt Geraldine's mansion in the San Juan islands off the coast of Washington. As the pack leader of the Trevelyans in Scotland, he has little time to travel halfway around the world to take care of his inheritance. But the trip takes a pleasant turn when he meets Luna Reynaud, the young secretary his aunt hired shortly before she died. He isn't sure which surprises him more - Luna's clever plan for turning the mansion into a resort, or the fact that she's drop-dead gorgeous. Both intrigue him - until he learns that Luna is only a half-breed. There's no way a pack leader can mate with a woman who's partly human... or is there?

fun and simple

Where does Werewolf in Seattle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like the whole series they are fun and easy to do chores to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like the family's coming to terms with difficulties and working to except each other.

What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like the cultured city and animal woods that she jumps back and forth through.

Any additional comments?

I was having a hard week when I bought this book and it put me in a much better mood. My whole family liked that! It was a great pick me up that I needed.

A fun read

Sometimes in the course of events, I like to be entertained. This series so far has allowed me to escape reality very nicely. Lots of fun,

Not to bad

Story
The first two books deal with full male weres falling in love humans with the obstacle obviously the difference between them. This is the first where the heroine is already knowledgeable about the paranormal elements as she is half were, half human. I was quite pleased with the honesty of Luna's character. The author could have made Luna hide it for most of the book, making it the main conflict. Instead, Luna admitted it the truth in the beginning, surprising me, and taking the story in a different route, which was nice.

I am still debating how I feel about the way the author handled Colin's prejudice against humans and half-were matings. He admits it is hard to forgo years of rigid beliefs in a matter of days to accept her human half background; since he doesn't consider her mate material, I'm not sure why it is such an issue. He also sleeps with her really quickly, using her lack of were knowledge and were sexual experience as an excuse. This seems like a very quick (and illogical) outcome considering those beliefs.

Even more worrisome for me was the fact that Luna just accepted his posturing. She says nothing negative against his contrary actions; just goes with it, continuing to satisfy their natural were urges. Whether this was due to her lack of were knowledge or her desire to be with Colin, I am still unclear.


Narration
The narrator's rendition of Colin's brogue wasn't very strong, and at times, sounded like a French accent instead of British/Scottish. The author described it as a light brogue with a heavier connotation during moments of great emotion. Also, the narrator's New Orleans accent resembled a southern accent true, however, I'm not sure it picked up the cadence of NOLA.

In conversations where the ladies of inn were all together (with the exception of Luna, who's accent was quite distinctive), it was hard to distinguish between them. This, surprisingly, was not a problem for the range of male accents. Not even when both Scottish brothers spoke; I was still able to distinguish between the two of them.

It was a cute story. The narration wasn't so terrible it detracted from the overall story. Nothing hard hitting but amusing for the 9+ hours it took to listen to it. These type of stories are funny and especially good to listen as they require no intense mental concentration while listening to them. Even better, as the series is loosely connected so you can pick up a book and read it out of order without getting lost.

A soft read

What disappointed you about Werewolf in Seattle?

This book is not a disappointment if you know that it is a light fun book.

What could Vicki Lewis Thompson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It is a light enjoyable harlequin like novel.

Any additional comments?

You do not read this book if you are looking for character development and a interesting plot. But it you want something light and PG rated sex, this is fine.

Fun easy romance

What did you like best about this story?

This series is easy to stay with. A fun romance novel with just enough of a mystery/action to keep the listener hooked. I really enjoy this author.

Which character ??? as performed by Abby Craden ??? was your favorite?

Luna, her accent wasn't really perfect but it was cute.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It kept me listening even after I pulled into the garage!

Good Story

What did you like best about Werewolf in Seattle? What did you like least?

The story was fun, easy to follow.

What aspect of Abby Craden’s performance would you have changed?

Narrator has a hard tim keeping with accents, and needs to pay attention to what a Southern, and Scottish accent really sound like.

Do Not Use Your Points On This One!

Any additional comments?

I almost never purchase books that have not been reviewed and I really should have stuck to that on this one. I used my last point this month on this book and I finally gave up on it as a lost cause about 3/4 of the way through the first part. I just couldn't take it any more. What a waste!<br/><br/> I was looking for a light, fun book that would be a little different from my usual reading and being from Seattle, this title caught my eye. What I got was an old fashioned

Kilted Were and a half breed

I am loving all of Vicki Lewis Thompsons books.They are all very entertaining,have great story lines and lots and lots of HOT romance.The narrator Abby Craden does an excelent job creating a male brogue which is hard for a female to not only create a sexy male voice but also with a Scottish accent ,she does a great job giving each character their very own voice and personality.I would definitely read this series again.

Terrible fake accents killed this book

How could the performance have been better?

Southerners beware, this narrator is no Amanda Ronconi or Allison McLemore!!! I'm not Scottish, so though I recognized the Scottish accent as bad it didn't much bother me. The southern accent drove me nuts!!!! I'm from the south, and I find bad, false southern accents to be very off putting. This narrator chose to give the female lead (modern 20 something from Louisiana) an accent similar to Scarlet O'Hara. Nobody in the real world speaks with that accent, cadence, and inflection!!!! It made it impossible for me to become engaged in this book or imagine the character as an actual person. I warn anyone considering this audiobook to first listen to the sample before purchasing.

Hero is not easy to like

It was hard to like Collin and be in favor of a continued affair with Luna after she finds out he is a bigot.
