Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson’s life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related – and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

I’m not sure if there’ll ever be a day I’m not excited for the new Mercy Thompson book. Unless it was to be the last in the series. Then I’d be anticipating with a mix of dread and excitement. It’s always good to get back to Mercy’s world. She’s a great heroine that seems to have a hard time living a quiet, happy life. Also, the cover art is always so awesome.

A funny and smart romantic comedy about getting the guy. . . and finding yourself.

Sophomore Nora Fulbright is the most talented and popular new cheerleader on the Riverbend High cheer squad. Never mind that she used to be queen of the nerds—a chess prodigy who answered every question first, aced every test and repelled friends at every turn—because this year, Nora is determined to fully transition from social pupa to full blown butterfly, even if it means dumbing down her entire schedule. But when funny, sweet and very cute Adam moves to town and steals Nora’s heart with his untra-smarts and illegally cute dimple, Nora has a problem. How can she prove to him that she’s not a complete airhead? Nora devises a seemingly simple plan to barter her way into Adam’s classes that involves her classmates, friends—and her older brother Phil’s award-winning AP history paper. But soon, Nora can barely keep track of her trades, and struggles to stay in control of her image.

In the end, the only thing that can save Nora is a chess tournament—that she has to compete in wearing her cheerleading uniform. Can she prove to everyone that she can be both a butterfly and a nerd?

Nothing better than a cute summer read, and this just sounds like such an adorable one, I hope there’s lots of shenanigans haha.

      1. Thanks for stopping by. I absolutely adore the Mercy Thompson series, so I always look forward to the new books.

        Just an fyi, when making a link, make sure you include the http:// before the link itself. Otherwise it won’t work. 🙂

  3. I still have some catching up to do with Patricia Briggs series (I read 3 books, so far) but I do hope we will have a couple books more to come! And the second book looks absolutely cute!
