3.0 out of 5 stars good story poor execution
I was looking forward to read this book but It became shortly clear that the writer did not think through everything before started writing.
Details are fuzzy and not explained properly. Certain information would be vital to give final conclusion but I'm still waiting to find them out. The end is sweet but seems to forget about the fact that the danger will be always...

5.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Werewolves....Cool!, 31 Mar. 2012
This book has several things I love: Scotland (in spite of the fact I live in England), Wyoming (my favourite place to go on holiday), dogs and an twisty, excellent plot.

Hiding in the great state of Wyoming, our heroine Kelly McKenzie (whose dialogue was spoken by Blythe Duffy from 'Taggart' in my head) runs a rescue shelter for abused dogs. She has a wonderful way with dogs which comes as no surprise since she is a werewolf. Her greatest fear is to be found by whoever is kidnapping her family. She has been approached by The Pack and their pseudo-cops, The Protectors, wanting to help her, but she rebuffs them as she is sure of her own abilities.

Mac Lamonda is looking for his children. He is The Protector: strong, capable and dangerous. He's American. He is also not going to let Kelly continue to live as she has. She needs The Pack more than she realises. Mac is also convinced she is the key to his kidnapped children's whereabouts as his late wife was a cousin of Kelly's. More importantly than that, Kelly and his late wife were a special type of werewolf called a Tearlach - rare, magical, mystical werewolves.

The plot is excellent. Right up to the final chapters one is not exactly sure who the "good" guys are and who the "bad" guys are. There are enough twists and red herrings to make any mystery fan happy. As our hero and heroine race for their lives across the Western US, Ms Whiddon keeps the pace of the story fast and exciting.

There are a few problems in the story. Firstly, the timeline of events seems to change. The time lapsed between her father's death and the current story fluctuates from over a decade to several years. This really bugged me throughout the story because this timeline of events is vital to the story. Secondly, I-25 is a north/south interstate not east/west. All odd number roads in the US are north/south and even numbered ones are east/west. I got a bit lost geographically in my adopted state. And there is nothing 76.3 miles north of Casper save Kaycee (68 miles), so she is in the middle of nowhere and there sure aren't a lot of trees. By the time one gets to Buffalo or Sheridan, yes, but not there. I know this seems picky, but if you ever see the open spaces of Wyoming, then you could believe that werewolves could live there happily.

The good things in this novel are well defined, developed characters that are believable. The actions of the secondary characters are well drawn and those actions add to the plot and excitement. The use of some 'created for purpose' Gaelic was well thought out and almost accurate, which was really nice. The hero and heroine do have real reasons to argue with each other besides the usual plot device. The dark undertone of the novel becomes a full fledged menace as the lies and manipulations are revealed.

A great tale for everyone who likes a good thriller and werewolves. I'm really glad I took the time to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Promising, 9 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf Whisperer (Mills & Boon Nocturne) (Kindle Edition)
This book had a lot of promise. However, there were some format issues. Throughout the book, there are many places where a word has been split in two, e.g. "in sect" instead of "insect". It happens with various words in various places. Mostly I could ignore that but there were a few places where it actually made it a little confusing. Also, I felt the end of the book was very rushed and somewhat unclear as to what was actually happening. As a result, I feel that much was unresolved. Is there another book following this? The bad guys weren't exactly defeated, the ending just feels wrong, and the relationship was very rushed in the end.

Having said that, if those problems were sorted, it would be a pretty good book. The idea was a good one, the characters were good, the spelling/grammar was fine (yay!) and it was reasonably well written. It just needs the format issues cleared up and the end re-written.

Details are fuzzy and not explained properly. Certain information would be vital to give final conclusion but I'm still waiting to find them out. The end is sweet but seems to forget about the fact that the danger will be always there as that parts of the story is not finished.
I am also not convinced that the love between them is because they fell in love or just the bonding is the reason.

2.0 out of 5 stars paranormal romance/mystery, 31 July 2012
Wolf Whisperer was an action packed read full of adventure, mystery and forbidden romance. After the death of his wife, Pack Protector Mac had his children taken from him. Shifter Kelly has been in forced isolation for years, but when her kind start disappearing, she must go looking for answers...and Mac must join her.

Initially both distrust the other, but after Kelly binds them together to save Mac's life, neither will be the same.

Mac thought he could never love anyone else after his wife, but Kelly awakens feelings inside him that have been dormant for a long time. Kelly begins to trust Mac and realise that not only can he help find her missing kin, but he can also find her.

Wolf Whisperer flew by. It was a pleasurable read that takes little effort. I felt the story was little repetitive, like I'd read the same paranormal romance a few times before, but the characters kept it fresh and enjoyable. Whilst being a fairly saucy read, the descriptive scenes were kept to a minimum. The mystery element, even though it was predictable, was still entertaining. The book's best feature was watching Mac and Kelly fall for each other and work through the obstacles in their path.
