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..

Review: Cry Wolf was a very cute novel about town that may or may not have a werewolf. Andrea comes to Woodbine to write a story for the tabloid that she works for. Little does she know that her crush from college is now living there. She comes to Woodbine a non-believer in anything werewolf and you have to read to find out if she changes her mind. The story is not your typical werewolf story. Andrea has come to write a story that she doesn’t really believe in but she was sent there and does her job because of the pride she has in her work. She has many demons to bear and it is interesting to learn about them and how she resolves them throughout the story.

The story is centered around a werewolf but its more than just a retelling of a famous myth it is fun and very humorous. You fall in love with the main characters but also the secondary characters who lend to the humor the overall friendly hometown feel of the novel. I hope the set up I gleamed from the novel comes true and there will be a second novel with Sean’s sister as the heroine.

Andrea is a strong female that is a bit unsure of herself love wise but truly blossoms by the end of the novel. You watch all the characters grow as humans throughout out the novel. Sean goes from being a man that is only interested in casual dating to someone that loves fully. The romance is sweet but not contrived. I really enjoyed the writing of this author and will be on the watch for further novels by her.
