Review:Joy to the Wolves by Terry Spear was one irresistible read.
The story was cozy and action-packed. This book started off as the first book in a new wolf series, The Red Wolves. It held the same amount of suspense, action-packed pages, and sexy scenes. The heat between the main two characters was fun to follow. Their first meeting is one where the hero is annoying yet hot as hell and the heroine disliking his accusing tones but still found him sexy. Both feel the instant attraction.
I loved how complicated the plot was and how interesting every character big and small were. Once again, I found myself falling hard for Terry Spear’s contemporary paranormal romance book. She is definitely one talented writer.
As Christmas approaches, red wolf shifter Brooke Cerise unexpectedly inherits an antique shop in Portland, Oregon. But when a missing reindeer calf turns up on her property, she becomes embroiled in a kidnapping case and the primary suspect of far-too-intriguing shifter Detective Josh Wilding.
Josh doesn’t intend to fall for the mysterious new woman in town, but Brooke gets under his skin from the moment they meet, and he can’t help his instinct to protect her. These red wolves are both on the hunt for love, but there’s a mystery to solve before they can enjoy their holiday happy-ever-after.
Spend every Christmas with an unforgettable shifter hero
READING CAFE Review, loved this too!!! Thanks, Sandy!
REVIEW:JOY TO THE WOLVES is the first installment in Terry Spear’s contemporary, adult RED WOLF paranormal, romantic suspense series focusing on the Red Wolf pack in Portland, Oregon. This is Detective Josh Wilding, and antiquities dealer Brooke Cerise’ s story line.
Told from third person perspective JOY TO THE WOLVES is a Christmas themed story line that follows red wolf shifter and antiquities dealer Brooke Cerise. Following the death of her great aunt Ivy, as the sole surviving relation, Brooke Cerise inherited her aunt’s antique shop in Portland, Oregon with the stipulation that she work and run the shop for a minimum of three years. When a missing reindeer calf shows up in Brooke’s courtyard, our heroine becomes the number one suspect and finds herself investigated by local law enforcement. Enter wolf shifter Detective John Wilding, the man with whom Brooke will fall in love but all is not well in the antiquities business when a mysterious shipment places Brooke in the direct line of fire, and the DEA and FBI are called in to help find the people responsible.
JOY TO THE WOLVES is a detailed story line that follows several intersecting paths including the romance, relationship and mating of Brooke and Josh; the appearance of an orphaned, teenage wolf with no biological family to speak of; the murder of two antique dealers, millions of dollar in drugs and a missing thumb drive, and the discovery of a fortune in collectibles that are about to make our heroine a very wealthy wolf.
I’m off to walk and mail a payment for a bill. And I made a list of some of the things I need to do because they’re keeping me awake in the night: Get passport renewed just in case I can ever travel again. Flu shot. I haven’t taken one since I got so sick on it a hundred years ago while I was in the army. Get more light bulbs. I have lights under my kitchen counter, love them. But what a job to remove the covers. So I need to go to ACE Hardware and pick up light bulbs. One went out on me the year after I moved here. Three went out on me yesterday. There are two others, but smaller size. Maybe they’ll last longer. But it’s amazing how dark the kitchen is without the lights now. And the list goes on.
I had to pick up some replacement parts to upgrade my computer, so my SIL is going to put those in next weekend. Hopefully it will all get here by then. I seriously need an upgrade. My Photoshop keeps crashing, sometimes hanging up my whole computer and I have to pull the plug on my computer.
And I’m off to walk before it gets too hot. It’s supposed to be 94 today! Then tomorrow, last look, it was supposed to start cooling down.
I did get started on Cougar Christmas Calamity–first 2,000. Shooting for 2,000 daily, except for days I have little one. And another little one is on its way next spring. I’ve been able to get a little done while she’s here because she’s getting older. But with a new baby, ohmigosh, that will be interesting. lol
I was working on long hair, still need to make some changes on a woman with short hair. But I was working on a mermaid kind of picture, which is much more fun. And I finished a little girl’s picture with long hair too. Managed to get 3300 on Cougar Halloween Trouble. Hope to get 3,000 more today. I’m at 9000 words. Minimum 20K, probably about 26K when it’s done.
I moved a pine tree yesterday. It was about 2 feet tall, not sure it will make it. They have really long tap roots and if you don’t put it in the ground right, that can be the end of it. I kept thinking maybe I’d leave it where it was, but it was in front of a hibiscus tree and that meant I’d have to move it. I have a smaller pine tree to move too, not sure where to yet. They just sprout up all over the place.
It’s cooler this morning! Yay! So no little one here so I was out working on pulling up more of that nutsedge weed grass. What a job. Sun was coming out, and the fire ants were getting bad so it’s time to get back to writing. I have about 6 cardinals out in the yard right now. Many are young.
I wrote 4,000 words yesterday, 1,000 words away from word count. Yay!
One of the Facebook pages I follow: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Imaginationbyrowena/ mentioned taking something in your house and making a composite for it. So I did. It’s a fun exercise. I’m going to try it with a fairy my mother gave me years ago. This little bear paddling I picked up in Minnesota when I visited last year.
Another artist had done that using ceramic pixie figures to create composites and they were adorable.
Okay, finished 3,000 words + yesterday and I’m liking the story much better. I’m rereading all the stuff I rewrote yesterday to make sure it fits and then have to continue working on it. I’m 7,000 over word count. Yay! I’m shooting for another 8,000 words. Minimum at least 3,000.
So this morning at oh-dark-thirty, I took the dogs out and was shocked to see lightning. Maybe we’ll get rain. I wouldn’t count on it, but hoping…
