I will say right off the bat that I received a copy of this through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program, and I am grateful to the publisher for the opportunity to read this.

I would really give this 2.5 stars, and chalk most of it to not being my thing genre-wise. It's pretty gritty but sometimes in a kind of borderline-over-the-top way? And sometimes I felt like the bad guy was like way too smart, to the point where I got frustrated with the main character couldn't outsmart him, but that's

The story is about Toby Lieberman who works in rural Texas. His home life has been turned upside down, he can do no wrong by his daughter, and he has a tight knit group of family and friends he can trust. Bad things start happening around him and he finds himself trying to survive and avoiding the Law as much as possible. The story picks up and then the real ride continues.

This is one of Millers first books published and what a treat! Werewolves in Texas, um yes please! The only reason I didnt
What a lovely book this is!
Very masculine: the fear your wife will like another man better, the impossibility to face the fact your cute little daughter is in fact rapidly becoming a woman, and the feeling that violence is a solution to everything. (In this case it is of course, a werewolfe has to have its way. :) )
It is clear the author had much fun writing this book. Yes, certain things could have been done better, but the pleasure in writing makes up for it.

Werewolves in Texas, yall.

In A Taste of Home by C. Derick Miller, small town drama and corruption meets the curse of the werewolf. This early work of Millers gives a respectful nod to early Stephen King by using character choices and actions as the ultimate horror with the added monster horror as spice and catalyst. Millers diverse and vivid characters play upon your emotions as the horrors play upon your guts.

This story alternates between flowing narrative and brutal sequences. The

Not your run of the mill werewolf book

It was not a bad read, it has a lot of action, and gore. It was just not my kind of werewolf book. I guess I'm just stuck on the old fashion viscous mindless killing machine werewolf books.

I loved this book and almost read through the night. A curse that became the solution to a man fighting for his life. Is wife is hooked on drugs and sleeping around, the daily fights, and their teen daughter in the middle. A great mystery full of twists and turns!!!
