Thrown to the Wolves by Charlie Adhara

Agent Cooper Dayton is going to meet his boyfriend’s werewolf family. Unarmed. On their turf.

And he’s bringing his cat.

When Agent Cooper Dayton agreed to attend the funeral for Oliver Park’s grandfather, he didn’t know what he was getting into. Turns out, the deceased was the alpha of the most powerful werewolf pack on the eastern seaboard. And his death is highly suspicious. Regardless, Cooper is determined to love and support Park the way Park has been there for him.

But Park left him woefully unprepared for the wolf pack politics and etiquette. Rival packs? A seating order at the dinner table? A mysterious figure named the Shepherd? The worst is that Park didn’t tell his family one key thing about Cooper. Cooper feels two steps behind, and reticent Park is no help.

There are plenty of pack members eager to open up about Park and why Cooper is wrong for him. Their stories make Cooper wonder if he’s holding Park back. But there’s no time to get into it… as lethal tranquilizer darts start to fly, Cooper needs to solve the mystery of the alpha’s death and fight for the man he loves—all before someone else dies.

There’s something completely addictive about this series and I love that this book is a huge departure from the earlier stories. For the first time, we get to meet Park’s family and the fascinating but creepy members of the legendary Park pack. Like the other books, this one is a murder mystery – but I love the nod to classic Agatha Christie country house murder mysteries as Dayton and Park find themselves trapped in a mansion in a snowstorm with a rising body count.

Fans of the series will be as excited as I was when Park finally starts to share his family secrets with Dayton. Park’s family is deliciously menacing and as a human outsider, Dayton has to prove himself without showing any fear. I loved the complicated dynamics between the members of the Park pack and the even more complex relationships between the Parks and those outside the pack.

While this is a fabulous murder mystery, the best part of this book might be the way both Park and Dayton grow and the way their relationship develops. Park will never be an open book but for the first time, he trusts Dayton with his vulnerabilities. Dayton starts the story as an anxious mess, but I love that he willingly takes on Park’s family and his voice gets stronger as the story progresses. Dayton is an unlikely hero but in a book full of bloodthirsty wolves, it is the fragile human who ultimately proves himself strongest. I also love the new sense of balance between Dayton and Park by the end of this book and I love the trust they build as partners.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers but this story threw me for a loop a few times. I guessed parts of the story but I didn’t manage to guess everything and I loved some of the surprises at the end. This is an exciting read. The snowstorm in rural Canada makes for a sinister, claustrophobic setting and I loved the wolves.

Charlie Adhara has always loved a good story and, on occasion, a bad one. After getting her degree in neuroscience, Charlie decided she’d much rather study the heart. She now writes contemporary, mystery, paranormal, queer romance. Or some assortment of that. Whatever the genre, her stories feature imperfect people stumbling around, tripping over trouble and falling in love.

Charlie has done a fair amount of stumbling around herself but tends to find her way back to the northeast U.S. After all, home is where the dog is.
