Book Review: 'Winter Craving' by Marisa Chenery


Having read Wild Craving, the first book in this Canyon Creek Wolves series, I was eager to read this one too. It didn’t disappoint me in any way, and in fact, I liked it even more than the first story.
The opening pulled me in immediately. A woman lost in the snow in the Montana Wilderness and Cyrus, brother number two of the Canyon Creek Wolves, offering to go look for her. He’s a likeable character and in a way, came across as a lot more vulnerable than his older sibling in book one.
I was hoping to see more of the other brothers in this book and Ms. Chenery didn’t disappoint. They show up and get involved in their usual antics which adds to some comic relief.
Just like the first book, there’s sexual tension and a build up to the first sex scene. Shyla is also a likeable character but you know things aren’t going to go smoothly once she finds out that the hunk she’s fallen big time for, is a wolf shape shifter.
The dark moment, was just that and like Cyrus’ dad suggests that he go after his mate, I found myself willing Cyrus to do just that. I won’t give away the ending, although I can assure you it’s a happy one.
Now I’m looking forward to reading the third book in the series.
If you like wolf shape shifter stories and don’t have time for a full length novel, I think you’ll enjoy this series.
