I was provided an eARC of this book by Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley. This is my honest review for which I am receiving no compensation of any kind.
The cover is very good. It will appeal to readers because of its great color scheme and the elements in the picture. The man is perfect for the story and very attractive. The small plane in the upper right is also an element right out of the book. The white wolf is a nice touch as well. The story is good and well-done. The characters are written quite well, especially the main ones. The pace is brisk for the most part but easy to follow. The tension is definitely up there throughout the story given that there are events in the past and events happening throughout that the characters need to worry about. The author does a good job of keeping the tension going.
And here begins the reveal…
Amelia White is a Royal Arctic wolf shifter, as is her whole family. That means she was born a white Arctic wolf shifter, she was not changed from human. She can control her change and has been able to since birth. This is highly thought of in the shifter community where control of shifting can cause problems for changed shifters for years into their change. When Gavin Summerfield first meets Amelia, he is human and has no idea about Amelia’s shifter side.
Amelia is also a pilot. She deliberately crashes the small plane they are in to save Gavin’s life when they are both caught up in a jewel heist. Then they meet again when Gavin is investigating stolen dogs in Alaska and Amelia is a suspect with her two foster dogs. The third time’s the charm for these two.
Gavin and his group of friends have been turned against their will to Arctic white wolf shifters. They are still new enough to it all that most of them are still having problems controlling their change. But this time when Gavin meets Amelia, he has his white wolf nose to tell him that Amelia is a wolf as well. And this time when the plane crashes, it’s not Amelia’s fault. It’s been sabotaged.
Supposedly Gavin is to follow a group that’s out in the wilderness for an office workshop and he’s to report back to one of the men’s wives about whether or not her husband is cheating on her. Eleanor is the wife. But there’s so much more to Eleanor than that and it gets a bit twisty with what she’s up to and who she has doing what for her. She’s got Gavin following her husband. She’s paying two different women from the office to try to sleep with her husband. She’s got men working for her who were involved in the jewelry heist. She’s got someone working for her who’s supposed to kill Gavin and now Amelia. Eleanor’s the one behind it all. So, even though I’m giving away the secret, it’s how you get there that makes the book.
Why does Gavin hate flying? What is Amelia wearing when Gavin walks into her house? What’s the first thing Amelia does to Gavin? Answers to these questions and so much more between the covers of Flight of the White Wolf coming March 6, 2018.
