Review: Leader of the Pack by Karen MacInerney


On the outside, Sophie Garou is living every woman's dream: she has beauty, brains, and a big-time position in Austin's most respected accounting firm (not to mention a very sexy, very successful new boyfriend). But there's one Sophie would rather keep under wraps: she is a werewolf.

Sophie's life gets a little more hairy when her long-estranged father, Luc, arrives in the Live Music Capital to attend the werewolves' annual Howl and reconnect with his daughter. But Luc's plans fall apart after he's accused of murder and arrested by his arch rival, Wolfgang, leader of the Houston pack (and one notoriously dirty dog). Wolfgang drools at the thought of Luc's impending execution, but Sophie won't let her father die without a fight. Determined to prove his innocence, she and her friends set out to find the real killer. Along the way, Sophie must deal with taboo attractions, Machiavellian intrigues, sinister agendas, and hair-raising betrayals.


This is the third book in the Tales of an Urban Werewolf series. This book changes everything in Sophie's world. After 28 years of abstinence she meets her father and she isn't very about this fact from the beginning. Luc Garou is really annoying with his "we are better than the Germans"(I'm so not feeling for Luc- LOL) and you should take over Wolfgang's pack. He's a real Casanova and tries to charm his way in her heart and mind. She doesn't want to have him in her life but she most definitely doesn't want him dead. So she has to save his life when he is accused of being a murder and she has to pull all strings available to her to achieve it.
Sophie tries many things, some more permanent than expected, and seems to run from one dead end to the other. But she doesn't want to give up.
In the middle of this unsolvable situation Marc is pushing her buttons more then ever. He's possessive as Hell and this is no understatement. He offers his help to save her dad but that seems to have a catch, a real big one.
Lindsey still wants to become a werewolf and her advances become more serious.
The real big help is Tom and Sophie is really glad to have him around so much. Who can hold that against her? But he's also still seeing Lindsay- are real dilemma for our little werewolf.

The story is full of new revelations and turnarounds. I was gripped by this story and all the action going on in it from the beginning. But one thing was missing: All the funny situations that made this series so special. You know, these clumsy or embarrassing moments that made me laugh my ass off. OK there were a few funny and witty things but not at all enough for my taste.
After all, it's a good book and I hope we will get a fourth book in this series.
4 of 5 stars

Great review. I have not read this series - but I have it on my wish list. :)

Hmmm..I have not read this series either. I like witty books, although it seems this one lacks it a bit. I think I will try the first one!

Great review, Susi!! And I totally agree with you, more funny moments would have made the book a more enjoyable read but it was still pretty good. :)

Hi Susi,
I sound like all the previous comments *blush* but I haven't heard or read this author either and it sounds (by reading your review) like an intriguing series. Will do me some online searching for this series *grin*
