Aileen McKenna has come to Wolf Creek to be with family for the holidays, but more importantly to study wolves in the wild.  She’s simultaneously loved and feared wolves for years and isn’t sure why, but she’s determined to get to the bottom of her own strange experience in Wolf Creek years ago, as well as to protect wolves.  When she arrives in town, however, she discovers that several people have been killed.  The locals believe wolves are the culprits, but she disagrees.  Rhys Lindgren, a mysterious, reserved man who seems to know a great deal about wolves, agrees with her.  Though she isn’t sure if she can fully trust Rhys, she turns to him for help discovering what is behind the deaths.

Wolf Moon is an interesting tale of suspense with a paranormal twist.  As a heroine, Aileen was rather unremarkable, which in this case was a good thing.  She’s in her early thirties and not fantastically beautiful and perfect, making her easy to relate to.  She’s also stubborn and alternately brave and fearful.  Rhys is the strong, silent, mysterious type.  He cares a great deal about the wolves and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect them and Aileen.  The secondary characters populating the book add interest to the story, especially the local fortune-teller and the employees of the lodge where Aileen stays.  The mystery of who was killing the locals was rather easy to figure out (in my opinion, at least), but it made a good backdrop / impetus for the budding feelings between Aileen and Rhys.  The best part, in my mind, was Rosemoor’s very unusual take on shapeshifting, which I can’t explain without spoiling the story.  Overall, Wolf Moon is a pleasant and entertaining read, with a cool twist.
