This is now the sixth book of Hoag's that I have read and can honestly say I have enjoyed each one.
Cry Wolf is set in Acadiana, along the banks of the bayou. It is the story of the bayou strangler and the love found between the two main characters. The scenes are beautifully descriptive and the characters have good depth. From the moment I picked up this book, I had trouble putting it down. A must for Hoag fans!!
Just a word of warning, don't read A Thin Dark Line before this as it talks about the murders in this book and tells you who the killer is (as I found out the hard way - however I still enjoyed the book immensely, which shows how good a writer Tami Hoag is).

I started this book when I went to bed and didnt go to sleep until it was finished. The first Tami Hoag I have read, usually preferring to steer clear of femal crime authors, and it blew me away. I thought noone could better James Lee Burke in summoning up the New Orleans area, or its characters but Tami Hoag put me right slap bang in the middle of the heat, mosquitoes, and swamps. A fantastic novel dealing with a fairly simple plotline, but it draws you in and doesnt let you go. You care and condemn along with our heroine. And who wouldnt like a Jack Boudreux in their life?

This is the second of Tami Hoag's books I have read in the last month. I picked up Still Waters because it looked nice (awful, I know) and absolutely loved that and ordered a few more of her books from Amazon, including Cry Wolf. I thought the book was great - the scenes were so beautiful and descriptive, it's like you're reading a movie. When I finished Still Waters I loved it so much that I worried the next book wouldn't live up to my expectation but Cry Wolf was even better. I'm only marking it down a star because it finished when I wanted the story to carry on! It would be great if there was a sequel to Cry Wolf, perhaps exploring the future of Laurel and her mother, and Jack, and the community. Some people think the relationship themes in Tami Hoag's books are irrelevant as these books are thrillers, but I think it makes them all the better. All I can say is, I'm starting Dark Paradise next - and look forward to all Ms Hoag's future releases!

It was one of them books I bought and left for a while skipping over it thinking I wasnt going to enjoy it. When I finally picked it up to read I nearly put it back in the pile. I am so glad I didnt.
This book is a love story - admittedly slightly gruesome also.
Laurel is an excellent character - you really can relate to her.
As for Jack - if ever you wanted a man to jump out of a book and wrap you up in his arms - then this is the man!!! I didnt want this book to end. I did figure out who dun it pretty early on but it didnt ruin it for me.
Highly recommended!! Be ready ladies to fall in love.
This was the first Tami Hoag book I have read and I am going to be buying more.

At first I felt sorry for Laurel and Jack:they both had suffered terrible childhoods. They carried wounds into their adult life damaging their professional and personal lives. But enough is enough! The first half kept reminding me of their scars and not enough about the killer's state of mind . It picked up in the second half when Laurel began to acknowledge her sister's self destructive behaviour might possibly lead her and her sister into a terrible fate.Romance between Laurel and Jack was nice but overall Night SIns was much better.

I loved this book for its three dimensional characters. The suspense is not there like it was in Night Sins but thiss book is more about the two main characters overcoming their own self-torment and finally accepting happiness and love. Tami Hoag does an excellent job in fleshing out the two main characters and making them three dimensional. I enjoyed this book because of Laurel and Jack and not for the plot. I highly recommend this book.

I rarely put a book down halfway through after trying to stick with it and decide to never pick it up again but this is one that i just couldn't bring myself to keep goin with, ive read tami hoag books before and enjoyed them but this one just did not live up to her high standards, i actualy got the feeling tami was trying to tell us about her own personal fantasy of meeting a bad boy and a few issues of her own private life like she had to get it off her chest by putting pen to paper and her publisher thought it a good idea for a book, it just screams of desperation from the author and was a huge let down. This is only my view and im sure others will enjoy this load of tripe shes put on paper. My advice is just leave this one to gather dust and just dont bother wasting your time or your money

I know a lot of people complain about the romance aspects featured in many of Tami Hoag's books but that just makes me like them all the more. I struggled to put this book down and it had me guessing until the end! I love the way she portrays the area and the characters and i can't recommend this book, or any of her others, enough.
