Cry Wolf

Angela Campbell gifts her readers with a fantastic Halloween story full of chills as well as giggles. This started out as a simple fun story and turned into a serious and scary tale while remaining a true love story. I'm not usually a fan of reunited romances but I really enjoyed the re-connection between our two main characters. I loved the serious elements to this story and how seamlessly they were woven with the humorous moments. Andrea is such a fabulously complex heroine and until everything was revealed I had moments when I wasn't sure if I truly liked her or not. Sean is a truly likable hero, his faults make him seem more realistic and while he is far from perfect he is admirable. The supporting cast was so wonderfully developed and had a huge impact on making this such an enjoyable experience for me. I loved the fledgling reporter and so many of the eccentric residences of the quaint town. The premise of this story had the potential to border on the silly but instead I found myself truly believing every moment and holding my breath until the final. I cannot wait to see what else this author has to offer.

Journalist Andrea Lockhart finds herself on assignment in a small town tracking down a werewolf sighting for the tabloid she works for. She doesn't expect to be shocked but when she discovers the local reporter is her old college classmate she is shocked. But not as shocked as when she discovers there just might be some truth to the werewolf rumors.

Book Blurb for Cry Wolf

Andrea Lockhart's job as a reporter for cheesy tabloid The Naked Truth isn't exactly where she thought her journalism career would end up. She's determined to make the best of it, but when her editor sends her to Woodbine, South Carolina, to investigate a werewolf sighting, Andrea decides the ridiculous assignment will be her last. Until she meets Sean Hunter.

The last time she saw Sean, he had just beat her out for the position of editor of their college newspaper, and told her she'd never make it as a reporter. Given his grand ambitions, she's shocked to find him editing the Woodbine Weekly. Once they start competing for leads on the werewolf, Andrea becomes determined to break the story first—she can't let Sean beat her again.

As they each get closer to finding the source of the rumors, the only thing more surprising than the truth are the feelings Sean is able to stir in her, feelings she thought she had left behind...
