I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Ebook Format
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 9-781-46366-404-6
Release Date: July 15 2011
Overall Rating: 4/5 

            Running from a nightmare stalking her every move, Phoebe Martin arrives in Echo Falls hoping she has finally found a safe place to stop. But trouble has a way of catching up and soon the signs are there.
            After a vicious attack in an alley, policeman Aidan O'Bryan is left with Phoebe as his only path to understanding why the Echo Falls werewolf pack - his pack - is being attacked. When another pack member is killed, Phoebe is forced to confront her past before she loses Aidan and everything she has come to love.
            Love and duty become one as Aidan strives to prevent Phoebe from becoming the next victim. But with Phoebe just as determined to protect Aidan and her new home, secrets from her past threaten to tear them apart.
            Will love give Phoebe the strength to trust Aidan and face her fears, or will her past destroy her future?
            As soon as you start the book you’re already threw into the fray, your heart pumps faster as the main character Phoebe runs for her life from an unknown enemy. It was great the way the book started, though a bit unexpected. Arriving in Echo Falls Phoebe is running from something in her past as well as something chasing her. She’d saved by Aidan alpha of the wolf pack and can I just say. . .yum I want one. From there we meet a few key members of the pack. Though we don’t get to really know them all. We also meet Mia, can I just say eww. She’s your typical mean girl, who deep down hates herself more than she hates you.
            I love shifters, which was the reason I wanted to read this book and I’m glad I did. Echo Falls as a whole was really good and fast paced. Each character had a specific role they had to play in the story, and it was easy to figure out what roles was being played and by whom. I really liked that fact that when you thought it was going one way it went the other, though there were things that were easy to predict, but that didn’t take away from the story. A suspense thriller with a supernatural take that made me never want to put it down. There’s action, secrets, murder, and romance so do yourself a favor and read this book.
