    One thought on “Cry Wolf”

    1. The Devil's in the DetailsThe grass is green. The sky is blue. There is no such thing as werewolves. Those are just some of the absolutes in tabloid reporter Andrea Lockhart's world, regardless of the stories covered in The Naked Truth, the rag she works for. Then the photo of some mysterious creature in some backwards town on the other side of the country came across her editor's desk and next thing Andrea knows, she's traipsing through the woods of Woodbine, South Carolina, looking for a creat [...]

You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading RomanceCry Wolf is Angela Campbell’s debut novel, and it’s a cute, sweet contemporary romance with a little werewolf tossed in to mix things up. I was hoping that this was the beginning to a series, given the ending (more on that later), but after checking out her webpage, I think it’s a stand-alone novel.

    4. You know what makes this book even more fun to read? It's actual release date is Oct 31st :) I got an e-arc copy from net galley - WOW I'm glad I did :) I'm so excited to tell you about this book! Here I thought it would be a typical romance book - My first thoughts after reading the blurb was that the reporter guy that's following her around was the werewolf - But NO WAY! This is a TOTALLY DIFFERENT type of werewolf story! I was at the edge of my seat for the whole thing! I couldn't put it down [...]

    7. Cry Wolf is fun and sweet romantic mystery with a paranormal-ish twist. Andrea “Andi” Lockhart is a reporter for a famous tabloid magazine who is sent to the small town of Woodbine, SC to investigate the local werewolf sightings. Unfortunately she finds that her old competitor and the man who beat her out for editor of the college newspaper is now living in Woodbine and runs the town paper.

    8. Andrea Lockhart went from being an award winning journalist for the Chicago Tribune to hunting werewolves for a tabloid in Podunk, South Carolina. If that wasn’t ego deflating enough, she runs into her one time college crush turned arch nemesis while she is hanging upside down after being caught in a snare trap. Determined to keep the upper hand this time, Andrea doesn’t acknowledge the fact that she remembers Sean Hunter, and he sure doesn’t seem to connect the sophisticated, together pro [...]

    9. Originally posted at Libri Ago.Sorry, no rippling teen werewolf abs or sparklepire foes in this tale. Just a good old-fashioned story of a reporter out to debunk an urban legend.I love that a modern story involving a werewolf can be categorized as a contemporary realistic book. Realism FTW! I'm so ready for the paranormal phase to be over and get back to the good old-fashioned ghost, monster, and urban legend stories. I prefer to outrun scary creatures, not date them.Before getting to the heart [...]

    10. Cry Wolf by Angela Campbell is a sweet contemporary love story with an air of paranormal mystery as part of the main plot. Andrea Lockhart and Sean Hunter used to be friends and co-workers in college; but since then, they have not been in contact with one another. Andrea is sent to Woodbine, South Carolina to research an article on a werewolf sighting. While on assignment with the Naked Truth, a tabloid publication, she finds herself in an awkward position (literally) when she reconnects with Se [...]

    12. I have to say, this book was not what I expected. I received my review copy a long tie ago and I guess I forgot it was a contemporary romance not a paranormal one, so I kept expecting more supernatural stuff. My confusion is entirely on me, not the publisher or the author, but I think it affected my reading. Don't get me wrong, I did really enjoy the story and the characters.Andrea and Sean are a nice pair. They went to college together, parted ways after Sean was incredibly rude and cutting, an [...]

    13. I was fully expecting to read about shapeshifters in this book. What I wasn't expecting was the town legend of the Woodbine Werewolf. It was a pleasant surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed.Andrea Lockhart finds herself in Woodbine, South Carolina in search of a werewolf that has gotten a lot of attention the past two years. Not the usual story she is assigned, she throws herself into finding facts that prove this creature is either true or a hoax. From the second she stepped foot in Woodbine, she [...]

    14. My review:A- spicyI really liked this book. At first, I wasn't sure what it was going to be, but the book was so much more and much deeper than I expected. This is the story of Andrea and Sean. They went to college together, and being the top journalism students in their class, were often competing against each other. Early on in their college lives, they'd actually been friends, but by the time they graduated, they were much less. And on Andi's part, there were lots of hurt feelings over the wa [...]

    15. Posted on Romancing the Book's blogReviewed by~AubreyReview Copy Provided by~the Authorry 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 [...]

    16. Cry Wolf is an unusual werewolf mystery. It is more modern and truthful and not based in so much paranormal fantasy. Andrea Lockhart is a reporter for a leading Tabloid and usually gets to work on celebrity pieces but her new boss who happens to be an ex sends her to woodbine, South Carolina to chase after a wereworlf story. It isn't until she meets the local Paper Editor, Sean Hunter that things get interesting. Sean Hunter had been her mentor and competitor in college and she had a crush on hi [...]

    17. This is a cool mystery romance with a touch of horror. I really enjoyed the different take on the werewolf myth. The story kept me guessing right up until the end and I loved the characters. I especially identified with the characters because I went to school for journalism and remember how competitive it was when the editor spots came open. The main characters met in college, and he was the hot shot reporter and editor while she was shy and just learning her craft. They both have misconceptions [...]

    18. I'm starting to think maybe contemporary romances just aren't my cup of tea anymore. This one was a bit frustrating because I initially found it really appealing, but 2/3rds the way in, everything seemed to just start wandering aimlessly in circles. By the end I was skimming and kind of annoyed by the so-called "resolution" of the whole werewolf arc. I did enjoy the relationship conflict and character development of our hero and heroine. I also liked the secondary characters and the small-town s [...]

    19. One of those books that starts out kind of slow but seems to keep on getting better and better. It is a contemporary 'werewolf' story involving a tablold reporter who really doesn't believe in werewolves, who is sent to a small community to write a story for a Halloween issue, but who ends up encountering not only a story that is far greater than she originally perceived it will be, but an old flame whose disregard has hurt her in the past. Lots of colorful characters that populate a story that [...]

    20. Happily, this wasn't the fantasy-laden chick-lit book that I was expecting to read. Yes, there is a romance involved; but it was more of a side story to the supernatural mystery. And yes, "werewolves" lead the current reader to think Team Jacob, but the werewolf in question luckily wasn't part of the previously mentioned romance in any way. The werewolf is treated in a very grounded, scientific way. The cryptozoological aspects were explored, not exploited.I enjoyed the fact that the characters [...]

    21. I'm a huge fan of Destination Truth on the SyFy Channel. The whole searching for mythical creatures has always fascinated me. When I read the blurb for Cry Wolf, I knew I had to read it. Angela Campbell didn't let me down. I loved the whole concept of the book. Her writing is quirky and had me laughing out loud at points. The romance is sweet with that heart-warming appeal that I love. Add in a little on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense in a few scenes and I had myself a winner. Can't wait to read [...]

    22. This book surprised me in that it was a book about a werewolf but neither MCs were the werewolf. Instead it focused more on a legend about the Woodbine Werewolf and the MCs were trying to figure out what exactly it was. The relationship between Andrea and Sean is built on a friendship they had during college and she fights the attraction they have now. It was a slow build and was very sweet. I also really liked the supporting characters that ranged from a helpful high school kid to Sean's sister [...]

    23. I loved the opening scene with Andrea literally hanging upside in a trap. Good pacing throughout, and I liked the tension between Andrea and her old college crush/nemesis Sean. NOT a paranormal romance with a werewolf, but rather a romance between two reporters investigating the so-called Woodbine Werewolf. Is it a hoax, a previously unknown animal species or something supernatural? A nice balance between the romance and mystery plotlines.

    24. It's me, Angela, the author. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to rate or review "Cry Wolf" here on . I appreciate and value all the feedback! The positive reviews make me smile and sigh in relief because not everyone thinks I suck lemons, and the critical ones help me think and grow as a writer. I'm a work in progress, so seriously, thank you. :)

    25. This was kind of a unexpected read, and I really enjoyed it. It presents a fresh take on the werewolf romances I'm used to. Loved the author's writing style. I laughed, a lot. I was also on the edge of my bed toward the end. Nice blend of genres here.

    26. Romance and a werewolf seems to be a theme lately, but I have to say for a debut book this author hit the nail on the head!
