Tour Stop + Review: The Howling Heart by April Bostic


Howdy there lovely bloggers and readers.

This is my tour stop and review for The Howling Heart by April Bostic.


Synopsis (Cover links to Goodreads):

Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

My Review:

The book starts off with Paige sharing a child hood memory with you. A look into the life of a young Paige. It was an interesting way to start a book. Jump a couple of years to a very successful Paige who has landed her dream job, has a satisfactory boyfriend (or so she thinks) with quite a happening social life in New York. She is happy with everything until everything goes to the dogs. This unfortunately is something you come across in a lot of books – but is written in a way that makes it okay.

Called to the town of her memories things go from bad to worse when she gets into a car accident, totaling her only way out of the crazy little town she now found herself trapped in. At least there is Riley and his sister. But things aren’t all they seem to be. Everything doesn’t quite add up and Paige just wants out.

Soon Paige is faced with a choice, which really isn’t much of a choice. Live – in a place where she really doesn’t wanna stay or die.

All things considered – this really was a good book. Very intriguing and strange with enough details to keep you interested. I wasn’t a huge fan of how INSTANTLY Riley just HAD to have Paige – but reading in further it kind of grows on you. A lot of cool twists and turns takes you on a journey that left me pleasantly pleased at the end of it.

  1. Hmm, I quite like insta-attraction if it’s written well, and the love bit comes lots later. This sounds good! And kind of reminds me of Susan Kearney’s books which can only be a good thing. Lovely review honey, thanks for sharing. 🙂
