Wolf at the Door (Wyndham Werewolf #7)
Rachel, a werewolf/accountant, is asked to keep one eye on Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor and the other peeled for a rogue werewolf who's itching to start a war. But her attention is mostly on a sexy, mysterious stranger she wishes she could trust.
In spite of all of the negative reviews that Wolf at the Door has been receiving I opted to give it a go. It is about werewolves after all! I should have listened to those who took the plunge before me. I really struggled with this book. The characters are annoying, the story is so simple that it's dull and the leading man couldn't be further from being sexy than an earthworm is. I hate writing negative reviews. I really, really tried to look on the bright side but it was ...more
In this novel, Pack Leader Michael sends his cousin Rachael to St. Paul, Minnesota to keep an eye on the vampire queen Betsy Taylor (from the Undead series). Things have been a little unsettled (though calm) since the last werewolf (Antonia) had lost her life in service to Besty.
What I love about Rachael is that she's not your typical werewolf. She also happens to be an accountant, and the Pack liason in Minnesota sets her up to meet some clients while she' ...more
We have Rachel, werewolf, Michael's cousin, she is an accountant.
We have Edward, human, Bo's and Greg's roommate, also an accountant.
They are the protas in this book, the story is interesting and the way the relationship develops is cool.
We have some scenes with Betsy and her people, which I thorough ...more

Wolf at the Door is one of my favourite books in the Wyndham Werewolf/Queen Betsy universe. I enjoyed Rachel's POV and how she views the craziness of Betsy's world from the outside. Her romance with Eddie is light-hearted and fun, a nice reminder of how the earlier Queen Betsy books were before they started getting darker!
Rating: 4/5 stars

It’s been several years since I read anything by MaryJanice Davidson, but there was a time when I devoured book after book in her frothy, fun Queen Betsy paranormal chick-lit series. WOLF AT THE DOOR is the seventh book in the Wyndham Werewolves spin-off series which features a few well known cameos by characters from the Queen Betsy series.
There were moments where MaryJanice’s trademark effervescent and light writing style really shined, but I found m ...more
I enjoyed the spirited and quirky romance that blossomed between Rachael and Edward. Seriously, Edward was so flippin' adorable that I caught myself grinning through most of his dialogue. The jabs at the "famous Edward" were an extra bonus! I wasn't too ke ...more
I am leery of continuing reading the Queen Betsy series after this. The author seems to be able to write about characters with the same type of personality - overl ...more
The Bad: Sadly, this sequel to Derik's Bane didn't really feature any of the werewolves we know of. Michael makes a brief appearance, and Lara is mentioned in passing, but this book was mostly about an unknown werew ...more
Edward is a major ADHD headcase that is the least likely romantic lead you can imagine. And I don't understand the point of bringing in his ...more
All of these books are fluffy and quirky, but this one definitely takes it to the max. It almost feels more like a short story, even though it's a full book, since things seem to happen very fast while not much seems to happen (if that makes sense). I really disliked the few bad guy chapters, which were very confusing, and I highly disliked having to have the entire thing explained ...more
Michael Wyndham, Pack Leader, reluctantly requests that his cousin Rachael take over the job of spying on/babysitting the Vampire Queen. A position left vacant by the death of Antonia (who, by the way, is no longer dead). Meanwhile, another character met briefly in "Incredible Adventures of Boo & the Boy Blunder" decides to take up the same t ...more
The howlingly good spin-off of the Undead series from the New York Times bestselling author.

This is a fun romp and I am going to read up on Gregory and Boo cuz they sound like fun. I hope they make their appearance in the next installment of the Wyndham Werewolf series.
Edward was fun to live my nerdiness through, but he was a bit too girly I think to be believable.
Overall, it was a fun fa ...more

If you havent read any of the Betsy, Queen of the Vampires books it just wont make much sense to you.
