A Werewolf in the North Woods – by Vicki Lewis Thompson
A Werewolf in the North Woods is the second book in the “Wild About You Series.” The first, A Werewolf in Manhattan, was reviewed here. If you haven’t read that book, go read the review. You don’t have to read A Werewolf in Manhattan to enjoy A Werewolf in the North Woods. The books are linked in that the heroes of these books are brothers, but the books stand alone.
“Official” Book Blurb from the back of the ARC: When she used to walk around her grandfather’s property outside Portland, Abby Winshell loved the idea that Bigfoot was somewhere out there too. Now her grandfather swears he’s seen two creatures that fit the legendary description–and he has evidence. Sort of. Grandpa Earl may be a bit dotty, but when his neighbors invite a renowned anthropologist to disprove his theory, Abby decides to send the man packing…until she sees how hot he is.
Anthropology professor Roark Wallace can’t risk news being made of a Bigfoot sighting in the north woods–not with a local pack of werewolves to protect. Disproving the evidence should be easy, but ignoring Abby is not. Her fiery red hair makes him want to sit up and big, and this obvious attraction is making the pack suspicious…
The entire Winchell family has relocated from the Portland area to Arizona. Her Grandpa Earl’s the last of the family left in Oregon. He suffers from arthritis and he is getting older. The family wants him to retire from running his general store and more to Arizona to be with them. He, and his father before him, spent their entire lives looking for Bigfoot. Now Earl has finally seen the elusive creature, except the picture is blurry, no one believes him, and the neighbors (who want to buy Earl’s property) have brought in a well-respected professor to refute Earl’s claims. Except the professor is a werewolf and Bigfoot does actually exists and the professor has actually been brought to Oregon to find the Bigfoot couple and relocate them.
Abby has been sent by the family to get Grandpa to move. But he just won’t leave until he can prove Bigfoot is real. She loved her grandfather and would anything to help him, including meeting the NYC professor to convince him to lay off the public talks refuting Earl’s claims. Except the professor isn’t want she expected. He’s hot, sexy, and OMG…A Werewolf! She blackmails Roark into taking her with him into the north woods as he looks for the Bigfoot couple.
This is a fun book with witty dialog and some wonderful sexy scenes. But I have to reprint my favorite lines from the book:
“Shut up, Spot.”
“Just try not to be a complete butthead, Rover.”
You’ll have to read the book to find those lines. If you don’t laugh, or at least smile, you have no sense of humor!
