When she used to walk around her grandfather’s property outside Portland, Abby Winchell loved the idea that Bigfoot was somewhere out there too. Now her grandfather swears he’s seen two creatures that fit the legendary description—and he has evidence. Sort of. Grandpa Earl may be a bit dotty, but when his neighbors invite a renowned anthropologist to disprove his theory, A ...more

Çok klişe, saçma ve mantıksızdı. Ama bu tür kitaplar çerez olarak iyi gidiyor. Dizi izlemek gibi.

A Werewolf in the North Woods is a cute, flirty read with paranormal undertones but the bulk of the story line focuses on lovin'. The Bigfoot intrigue was a fun added bonus and offered an interesting twist on an old myth. It's not essential to have read A Werewolf in Manhattan prior to tackling the second novel. The main characters of this series are brothers but other than that each story is independent of the other. A great read if you're looking for a few giggles and s

I loved her Nerd series, while the world-building is really weird here.
I didn't get into the first book not into this either. The romance was mainly boinking and then suddenly the heroine is all fine with all the secrecy of the werewolf world after disliking it for most of the book.

I prefer her straight-up contemporaries, feels less forced and natural.

This one was much better than the first. I found the story line without as many holes, although some times just conveniently fall into place, I found the situation more enjoyed, and I found the characters more enjoyable. Although I loved the idea that Emma, the lead female in the first in the series, was a writer there is something about Abby that seems to make her more relatable. Maybe it’s the fact that she is doing everything for her Grandfather. I dunno, but I know I like her. I know that I ...more

About half way through reading a novel, I can always tell when it’s going to be a five star read. I start deciding what I want to write in my review while I’m still reading. Now though, I’m sitting here and have no idea what to write. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy this read, because I did. It’s a fantastic way to sit and kill a few hours. The characters were just okay, not really that memorable, so I’m not sure what I can say about them. Overall, it’s a cute story. There are some humorous moments

I really enjoyed this fairly lighthearted shifter romance. It was not a wisecracking joking type of book. Just not deep, dark and ominous. Nor was it erotic although there were several nice love scenes. I liked both the hero and the heroine. She was well written as a person with a background that would lead her to accepting the existence of werewolves fairly easily. The shifter world was drawn in lightly but it all made sense. I'm definitely going to read the rest of the series and I'm quite loo ...more

Did not finish. I read half the book. Conversations felt like TV sitcom style dialogue.

Some reviewers liked it for the perky chick lit feel. But it didn’t work for me.

Roarke is a wolf-human-shape shifter. His community of werewolves keep their existence secret from humans. Abby discovers he is a werewolf and blackmails him. She tells him she wants to accompany him in a search for Bigfoot. Roarke wants to relocate Bigfoot to a safe area away from humans. So they take camping gear and head to the
Just finished the sequal to "werewolf in manhatten". Here we have the story of Roarke, Aiden's brother, and Abby.

It all starts with a big foot sighting by Abby's grandfather. He is discredited and made to feel the fool by Roarke. Roarkes is just trying to protect the big foot creatures as well as the secrecy of Were's who own land near the sighting.

Abby is mad. Mad that her grand father has been made to look a fool. She catches Roarke in the woods shifting and gets a few snaps. She uses those p

I thought this was going to be a supernatural romance mystery, like many other books I enjoy, but this is more of a straight romance with lots of sex and very little plot. I like this author, especially her Nerd series of romance novels, but this was not my favorite.

I'm not much of a paranormal reader, but I have gotten hooked on this series. I really liked Roarke in the first book, and I was glad to see that this book was about him. And then the Indiana Jones jokes started, and I just went head over heels for the guy. I mean, a hot werewolf in nerd clothes? Sign me up!
When the action heads out into the woods, things get really hot. Abby and Roarke can't keep their hands off of each other even though they know they can't be together. Their love scenes are

Thompson definitely turned up the heat in this one.

Totally in love with Roarke, but I think I gained a little extra appreciation for Aidan too.

I liked how this book contemplated the whole werewolf thing, and the discrimination against mating with a human as well as the sacrifices that must be made in order for that mating to be successful.

This book once again proves that not only is Thompson gifted in writing intimacy and romance, but she is also a gifted story teller. She thinks about all th

Poor Roarke Wallace. His brother just married a human. He feels that weres should just mate among themselves. Abby Winchell is another story. She was out one night with her grandfather's camera and she has some amazing photos. Now Roarke has a choice. Either he can help her get proof that Bigfoot exists or she will release the photos that there are werewolves around. What's a werewolf supposed to do? Especially when Abby's scent is driving him crazy. Just a fun book to read!

Abby & Roarke begrudgingly take a hike together to find Sasquatch, what an adventure. Their trek brings them too close together to deny their attraction. They are very protective of each other and her knowledge of his family secret brings danger to the camp. The tales they tell are elaborate, antics hilarious and entertaining, their sacrifice is admirable, their chemistry force them to deal with their feelings regardless..

This book could have been called the werewolf and the redhead go camping. Roarke and Abby are both in the woods for different reasons; Roarke needs to find a mythical creature and Abby needs to get some answers. Along the way, lust turns to love and two people find true happiness.

Werewolf in the North Woods (Wild About You, #2) by Vicki Lewis Thompson I read this book a long time ago and it was so much fun reading it again. Roarke (werewolf) and Abby have a great story and Uncle Earl is fun. Love the "Idiots Guide to Werewolfs". I love the Bigfoot part of the story and Aidan to the much fun getting to their HEA...Oh and I can't forget Spot and Rover.

Second in the Wild About You paranormal romance series revolving around the Wallace werewolves based in New York. The couple focus is on Roark Wallace and Abigail Winchell.

My Take
I do enjoy the fluff of Thompson's writing. Not only does she create a very enjoyable adventure, but she does so with intelligence and a modern sensitivity that appeals to both sexes with honor and some very caveman lovin'!

In this case, Roark has to balance his own honor in falsely ridiculing one man while upholding t

A Werewolf in the North Woods is the second book in the "Wild About You Novel." The first, A Werewolf in Manhattan, was reviewed here. If you haven't read that book, go read the review. You don't have to read A Werewolf in Manhattan to enjoy A Werewolf in the North Woods. The books are linked in that the heroes of these books are brothers, but the books stand alone.

Review from Backchatting Books

"Werewolf in the North Woods" is another cute and fun read just like its predecessor except there is more sex and sasquatch. Abby Winchell’s grandfather Earl reckons he has seen two Bigfoot and he has taken some very blurry images to prove it. The locals have invited big-shot anthropologist and secret werewolf Roark Wallace to investigate the claims. Abby is pretty protective of her grandfather and tries to help him find better proof. Roark meanwhile wants to reloca

Werewolf in the North Woods was so much fun and gave me happy nostalgic feelings since it reminded me of Gone With the Nerd, also by Vicki Lewis Thompson and involving Sasquatch! Abby's grandfather is convinced that he's spotted a mated pair of Bigfoots (Bigfeet?), but his neighbors--the Gentry pack--don't want humans all over their land. So they call in Roarke (Aidan's brother) to dismantle his claims, in hopes of running the old man out of town so they can purchase his land for themselves. Wel ...more

This is the second book from Ms. Thompson that I won in an author contest through Fresh Fiction. I have to say that I am very glad that I was fortunate enough to win both books, not only because I received two author signed books which makes the fan-girl in me squee, but also because in reading the second book in this series I feel I received a better look at Ms. Thompson’s writing.

Liked this book so much better than the previous book in the series "Werewolf In New York". Abby Winchell looked forward to those summer visits with her Grandpa Earl. Her and her brother would play and camp out in the woods, and Abby would pretend she was Indiana Jones off on some great adventure. So she always supported her grandfather when it came to his studies. Her grandfather had made it his life's work to find a true Bigfoot and when he is out walking the woods comes across two such creatu ...more
