Overview

Miniwa, Wisconsin is under siege, but not by the usual summer tourists. The area's normally shy wolf population has begun stalking human prey, and their victims have been disappearing...or worse. Something is happening in the woods. Something brutal and primitive...

Officer Jessie McQuade has seen plenty in her years on the force-but nothing as intriguing as the gorgeous, naked man she encounters while tracking a rogue wolf. Professor Will Cadotte is a Native American activist. He's also the only man capable of distracting Jessie from her work. And for a cop, distraction-no matter how pleasurable-can be deadly. It's against Jessie's better judgment to accept Will's help in her investigation, yet she soon finds herself doing exactly that-and more. Will's dark, penetrating eyes see into a part of Jessie's soul she never knew existed. It's exhilarating...and terrifying.
Now, as a town's deepest secrets come to light, no one is safe: not friends, lovers, or strangers. And as Jessie follows a bloody trail to the shocking truth, she'll have to decide who she can trust when the moon is full...

When the wolf population of Miniwa, Wisconsin begins to stalk human prey, officer Jessie McQuade enlists professor Will Cadotte, a native American activist, to help in her investigation. Something very strange is going on and as Jessie follows the trail to the shocking truth, she'll have to decide who she can trust when the moon is full.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sassy, wisecracking policewoman Jessie McQuade, the book's first-person narrator, takes readers on a thrilling hunt through the forests of smalltown Miniwa, Wis., in search of a mythical predator in this lively paranormal romance. No-nonsense Jessie has never believed in magic or other supernatural "woo woo," but when she sees schoolteacher Karen Larson turn rabid in the classroom and attempt to bite one of her students shortly after being bitten by a wolf herself, she begins to realize that the world is not just black and white but "a host of annoying shades of gray." Before long, she's tramping through the forest with a self-professed werewolf hunter by her side and lusty thoughts of gorgeous professor Will Cadote, an expert in Native American mythology, racing through her mind. The enigmatic professor may be able to help Jessie figure out why the onyx wolf totem she found on the road near where Karen was bitten is so important, but it's possible he may be a werewolf himself. Handeland (The Husband Quest, etc.) sets a feverish pace, thrusting Jessie into one dangerous situation after another, and she keeps readers in delicious suspense over Will's motives. What makes this book so compulsively readable, however, is Jessie's spunky narration, acerbic wit and combustible chemistry with Will. (Oct.) Forecast: Handeland has the potential to become as big as, if not bigger than, Christine Feehan and Maggie Shayne, both of whom praise this book enthusiastically in their cover blurbs. The next installment, Hunter's Moon, is excerpted here. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"BLUE MOON is fantastic-one of the best books I've read in a long, long time. Anyone who reads paranormal will love this book and anyone who loves suspense should love it as well. It's an edge-of-the-seat read." -Christine Feehan, author of Dark Melody

"Chilling and sizzling by turns! Lori Handeland has the kind of talent that comes along only once in a blue moon. Her sophisticated, edgy voice sets her apart from the crowd, making her an author to watch, and BLUE MOON a novel not to be missed."-Maggie Shayne, author of Edge of Twilight

"Presenting an interesting and modern twist on the werewolf legend, Lori Handeland's Blue Moon is an intriguing mixture of suspense, clever humor, and sensual tension that never lets up. Vivid secondary characters in a rural, small-town setting create an effective backdrop for paranormal events. Will Cadotte is a tender and sexy hero who might literally be worth dying for. But the real revelation in the book is Handeland's protagonist, police officer Jessie McQuade, a less-than-perfect heroine who is at once self-deprecating, tough, witty, pragmatic and vulnerable. She draws you into the story and holds you there until the very end." Susan Krinard, author of To Catch A Wolf

"Scary sexy fun. A book this clever only comes along once in a Blue Moon" -Rachel Gibson, author of Daisy's Back In Town

    entertaining paranormal police procedural romance

    In Mimiwa, Wisconsin, police officer Jessie McQuade investigates a car accident between Karen Larson and a wolf that apparently bit the teacher. As Karen is rushed to the hospital, Jessie searches the woods until she runs into a naked man living in a nearby cabin. He offers her nothing new on her case except a desire to make love with him. Jessie does find a small totem at the accident site. The next day Karen goes berserk at school forcing Sheriff Clyde Johnston to kill her. Jessie realizes that rabies takes three months to incubate in people so wonders what really happened. On a hunch she takes the totem to Mimiwa University where she meets visiting expert Will Cadotte, the naked man from the night before. He is stunned by the totem who says he belongs to the wolf clan that uses these artifacts, but this one is different. It is that of an auwishuk, an evil Manitou. As Jessie struggles with a supernatural evil truth, she and Will fall in love, but as the evidence piles up she wonders if she can trust the professor. BLUE MOON is an exciting werewolf romance starring the ultimate disbeliever and the ¿perfect¿ counterpoint to prove that sometimes there are strange phenomena beyond the norm. The who-done-it is cleverly drawn enhanced by deep secondary characters, some of whom are on the wrong side of the American law (who knows what the law is on the other side). Still, it is the match up of the lead duo that makes for a howling time for those who read this entertaining paranormal police procedural romance. Harriet Klausner

    Highly Recommended

    I really loved this book. Lori Handeland did such an amazing job. If you really love werewolves, then this is the book for you. It can be read as a stand alone work, but you'll love it so much, you'll want to read the others.

    Awesome!

    I read the sample and totally loved it! I'm not much into vampire/werewolf hunter books since Anita Blake got carried away with those, however the dialogue and imagery the author uses is excellent. and I only read the sample, I'm gnawing for more!

    An entertaining read...

    Jessie McQuade, is a straightforward 'shoot-first, ask questions later' kind of personality. Self-depreciating, she doesn't feel she's the best looking gal but knows in heart that in other ways she's definitely the best for the job. I hadn't planned on picking up this book considering I haven't read 'just for fun' in quite some time but since this one had attracted my attention when it first debuted I thought I'd go ahead and grab it - and I'm glad I did. While tracking an assumed injured wolf after a collision on the highway, Jessie is shocked to find instead of her quarry a gorgeous naked man hidden within the moonlit trees. Drawing forth sensations she long believed couldn't exist within her, she returns to the accident scene where she stumbles across a small wolf shaped totem. The web unravels from that point on, making the reader wonder who or what could be the reason behind the rash of missing persons and random killings in the area. Could it be the hot professor, William Cadotte, who keeps her mind filled with lustful images? The strange Jager-Sucher from the DNR who forces her to confront her own beliefs? Or, could it be something much more sinister? Blue Moon is an interesting work that puts a new spin on a old myth. By pitting a professed skeptic against a 'woo-woo' believer and further supporting it by a clever secondary cast, it makes the reader want to believe in the unbelievable. Overall, it was an entertaining read. Nice job, Lori! Review by Author, Dehanna Bailee

    Great beginning to a new paranormal series.

    Well written story with an engaging and spunky heroine. Reminds me a little of the early Laurell Hamilton vampire hunter novels. A good read with an appealing hero. I look forward to the next installment, Harvest Moon.
