Saturday in the Stacks

Pack of Lies by Charlie Adhara

Saturday is the perfect time to wander through the stacks (that’s librarian-speak for “bookshelves”) and talk about books and the people who write them. Pull up a comfy chair and settle in, because today I want to chat about a book I’m currently in the middle of reading: Pack of Lies by Charlie Adhara.

I was on the lookout for some wereshifter paranormal romances after finishing writing my own late last year. But finding something to match my particular tastes proved to be a bit of a challenge. I was looking for a story with leads I could relate to, enough snark to make me smile, and (as always) a good mystery wouldn’t go amiss.

So far, I’ve gotten all that in spades with Charlie Adhara’s first entry in their Monster Hunt series. Maybe it’s because I live in the Pacific Northwest, a place famous for mythic wilderness beasties (I’m still waiting to see Big Foot!), but I really love the idea of a committed cryptid skeptic looking for real-world answers to a mysterious death and stumbling into werewolves along the way. Julien and Eli are round, full characters, delightfully unique, and not quite like any characters I’ve ever come across in a romance novel before.

Besides, that title?! Perfection.

Now, I haven’t finished the book yet, so it’s possible the charm is confined purely to the first half of the work. But I highly doubt it! I’ll check in again with you all on this one when I finish it, but so far, I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for M/M romance, paranormal romance, or just a fun mystery! And the good news is, if you end up liking the book as much as I do, the second one in the series comes out early next year! Charlie also has another M/M shifter romance series (the Big Bad Wolf series) that’s five books long to keep us going until the next Monster Hunt book arrives.

Thanks! Processing…
