Overview

The thing with the Garouls is you never get quite what you think you will. They really are something else.

Hope Glassy loves her job at Ambereye, Inc., despite having Jolie Garoul as her new boss.

Jolie is a moody workaholic. She is awkward, contrary, and on occasion just plain mean. Hope is hardworking, popular, and in recovery from a serious illness. She doesn’t need a bizarre boss. She doesn’t need office politics. And she doesn’t need to work over Thanksgiving either. Nevertheless, that’s what she and Jolie end up doing…in Little Dip, home of the Garoul clan.

An important meeting brings them to the valley where it’s assumed Jolie has brought her chosen mate to meet her pack. Much to her consternation Jolie finds she likes this idea, but Hope has no time for romance. She is eager to get her life, health, and career back on track, nothing more. Jolie is determined to change her mind, but how does a lycanthrope woo a human? A small and super-efficient, bossy boots human at that?

Ambereye is the second installment in McKnight's Garoul series about a werewolf family. In this one, Julie Garoul, who is a top executive in the family's business Ambereye, Inc., is a demanding workaholic whose employees try to avoid her as much as possible. Everyone loves Hope Glassy because she's kind, considerate and equally hardworking. When Hope returns from a serious illness she can't believe she's been assigned to Julie as a personal assistant, but she's determined to make the best of the position. Can two strong willed women make this situation work? And just how do you explain to someone that you and much of your family can turn into wolves? This book has a great deal more humor in it than the first one in the series. McKnight may be more comfortable with this family she has created. The sparring between Julie and Hope in the beginning is similar to the banter that goes on in "The Odd Couple." It's a classic story of a curmudgeon who is slowly turned into a likeable character by a lighter spirit. People who think they don't like supernatural stories should give this book a chance. It's well told and entertaining. If you want a good laugh, it's good for that. It's an easy read and the main characters are very appealing. Besides, the Garoul family and how it functions in a modern world is very interesting. What more can a reader ask for in exchange for a few hours?

This second installment is better and in my opinion sweeter than the first. I love Jolie. She brings out the protectiveness in me and I am not the type to ever feel that way. I found myself laughing quite often at Jolie's antics. It left me longing for my own love story.

This is second in the Garoul series, and it did not disappoint. This was a wonderful story between the lead characters Jolie and Hope, and how they fit into the expanded Garoul clan. I look forward to future books in this series.

The characters in this story are vivid and believeable. The pacing is great. Numerous times I almost laughed out loud by some of the predictaments. However, this is not a comedy, just fairly lighthearted. The ending arrives a little too soon but at least there isnt filler.
