A fun read. Blakley-Cartwright is a talented writer, on a prose level and in terms of story-telling. I think a lot of writers struggle to create character-driven conflict without making one character the good guy and one character the bad guy -- but all three of the central characters here are well-formed, sympathetic even when they're behaving badly. The resolution is a little pat -- my advice: skip the last chapter -- but otherwise there's a lot to enjoy here.

thnx netgalley!

thought it was odd that had to go on line to read the last chapter. Couldn't put it down had to read it all before i could go to sleep.

Grandmother seems nice to Valerie's family but yet is strange with Valerie imagining wolf-like traits. Father is drunk, mother worthless. Henry is almost too nice, too chivalry - makes deal with Peter out of love. Bringing in a werewolf hunter adds suspense but just is a hater.… (more)

Okay, I am so confused at the end of this book. Is Peter the Wolf? Or her Grandmother? I don't know, and it irritates me!
I need to see the movie, too.

**Update** (later that same day)
I figured it out! If you go to www.redridinghoodbook.com and read the onus chapter, we finally get all the shit we didn't know explained.
