Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and are happy to keep their secret. But their privacy comes at a cost—neither brother has taken a lover in almost four hundred years.

Then at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be an animal. A la

4.5 stars for a paranormal mystery.

Matthew and Issac Adams are 400 year old werewolves. They live in Eyam, a tiny town in Derbyshire, where they have spent their entire lives. Hundreds of years ago the residents of Eyam had experienced Plague, and Matthew and Issac had helped to protect the town, and its inhabitants, during the outbreak by nursing the sick, and burying the dead. To this day they protect the current residents and their livestock from harm. They change into wolves once-monthly, on

Pack of Lies by Lucy Felthouse
This is not the usual kind of book Lucy writes about but after reading this I hope she writes a lot more of them! I love a good supernatural story. The Adams brothers, Matthew and Isaac, have lived in the village of Eyam for centuries. Most of the village is in the know about them being werewolves. They watched everyone grow up and die through out the years and because of this they never truly settled down. Why would you put yourself through this when you know they

I had no idea what to expect from this book as I am not a huge fan of Paranormal stories. What I did get from it was a great supernatural 'who dunnit'! I had worked out the 'who' but not the 'why'.

Lucy has a wonderful writing style that is so descriptive that had me almost thinking I was walking the streets of Eyam or sitting in the pub with the locals.

Werewolves give me creeps, can't watch films with them in, but thankfully Lucy has Michael and Isaac in their human form more than their furry f

I had been looking forward to this novel by Lucy Felthouse coming out and I was not disappointed. It has a unique storyline, great characters and the setting is vividly described. I liked the twist, adored the men and loved the plot - highly recommended for readers who enjoy a detailed and clever story with their steamy M/M loving!

I found this to be a most unique story and one that will defy being pigeonholed. It is a paranormal because our two main characters, Matthew and Isaac Adams, are “werewolves.” It is a romance because each have “affairs.” Oh yes, one of the brothers is gay so there is some m/m action. It is a mystery with some suspense although the only thing “murdered” is some sheep. It is a historical because events that happened in the 1660s has a big part in this story. Incidentally, the historical events ref ...more

Pack of Lies is not your typical shifter novel. Brothers Matthew and Issac are werewolves who have lived in the village of Eyam since their birth four hundred years ago. They have lived amongst the villagers with a select few knowing their secret. Each full moon, the brothers retreat into the caves where they cannot get out until their wolves fade away and their bodies become human again.

One such moon, a sheep turns up dead on the moor. There is a lot of speculation as to what happened, but the

Matthew and Isaac are brothers who are also werewolves. They have lived in the same village for hundreds of years and the villagers know their secret. Neither of them has had a long term relationship due to the pain of watching the people they care about age and die before them. One full moon a sheep turns up mutilated and the town begins to suspect the brothers are to blame. While trying to prove their innocence they both also embark on new relationships that they didn't intend to get involved ...more

In this book we have 2 brothers who are a bit over 400 years old. They are werewolves and they live in a small village. The people in the village are well aware what these brothers are. Something happens and a sheep is brutally slaughtered by an animal of large size. Some of the townsfolk seem to think it’s the brothers. Now they have to prove they are not the kil

What an intriguing story about two werewolf brothers who have lived for 400 years and have been a welcome part of the Eyam village life for so long. But when sheeps start getting killed during the full moon, tension rises and Matthew and Isaac know they have to solve it before they become the scapegoats.

History places a big part in this story and I don't just mean the characters' histories but also factual history. And of course when you've lived for 400 years then the probability of trouble fin

When someone tries to frame two brothers with a 400-year old town secret, how do they cope? Will they find out who their real friends are? Will they find love while trying to find out who's trying to run them out of their own town? This is not just a book about romance, but includes mystery, a town "in the know", one brother trying to "come out", and the ups and downs of brothers trying to live together. Follow this wonderful and amazing journey and fall in love with not just the main characters ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Ok, let me be honest. I struggle to finish this book. I failed to relate or understand the characters to the events happening around them. I skipped most of the pages, even the s*x scenes doesn't excite me to continue reading. But, the info on the village and the description really help me to imagine the village but not the story. Maybe the writer should re-arrange the story.

I won this book, which is already exciting. And there's werewolves, brothers, and one of them is gay and adorable, so hooray on that, too. The only thing I would critique if I had to, was that I wish there was more "show, don't tell" in the writing. I wanted to be more in the story and less having things described and spelled out. But again, werewolves, in the English (Scottish?) countryside. I do like werewolves.

This was a different type of book for me but it certainly didn't disappoint. I found the characters interesting and instantly took to them. I loved how the village was described and came to life in my mind. The storyline had twists and turns and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to work out 'whodunit'. The background history both as the book went along and at the end was a definite bonus for me. Looking forward to my next fix from this great writer.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review for LoP. Issac and Matthew have lived in Eyam their whole life. There were sheep slaughtered and Issac has to find out who murder them. It's a unique mysterious werewolf book. The characters work well together and compliment each other. Overall a great read and recommend this to all.

enjoyed the story of matthew and isaac. I thought the storytelling from lucy was great and made me want to keep reading until i finished the book. also enjoyed that there were 2 separate stories when it came to their love lives. One brother being straight and 1 gay. My heart broke for Isaac at the end but hopefully there is more to his story and he gets his HEA

I don't normally go for werewolves or paranormal books. I absolutely loved this book.
It has a unique storyline with strong characters, dialogue and a perfect setting.
This is the perfect story if you like your sex M/M raunchy.

Pack of Lies was a well-written and enjoyable paranormal romance that combined some steamy sex, a bit of romance, a bit more intrigue, a good amount of suspicions run amok, and a complicated relationship between two brothers and the village they’ve lived in for over 400 years. The Adams brothers were born in Eyam and with the help of the ancestors of the town’s oldest families, they have continued to call Eyam their home ever since their secret was discovered. With Isaac serving as one of the vi ...more

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, Lovers of paranormal, LOP.

This book was ok. I struggled getting into it as I felt that there was a lot of information on the history of the town and the brothers and not so much on the current situations. I felt like the characters were never really explored fully. The whole premise seemed to be their dedication to staying in their lifelong home town. The relationships felt forced and awkward. When I finished the book I sat there
