    I was given this book by author Sarah Mäkelä for an honest revie

    I was given this book by author Sarah Mäkelä for an honest review. This is book 1 of the Cry Wolf series.

    This book revolves around Mia, a couple werewolves, a possessive boyfriend and Ethan, her brothers friend who she has had a crush on for years. When Mia is asked to make a healing salve for a man little did she know the man was not human. What happens next just causes all kinds of problems for Mia.

    Nothing bad about this book to speak of. All the action and the characters mesh well together from start to finish in this book and I enjoyed reading this book.

    Paranormal romance readers who like that little hint of mystery and suspense will enjoy this book.  This book does have some sexual situations in the book so the reader should be advised about it.

    The Witch Who Cried Wolf by Sarah Makela is a great story.  Full of passion, suspense and shifters, this is wonderful paranormal read.  I was instantly absorbed.  The characters are terrific and I loved them all.  I felt the storyline was a bit rushed, but otherwise a terrific read.

    "The Witch Who Cried Wolf (Cry Wolf #1)" by Sarah Makela
    3 out of 5 stars
    If you are looking for a light, quick read then stop here on the first book in a new series by Sarah Makela.  Mia has a huge secret.  To her family she's an unemployed college graduate who dabbles in Wicca and has no career prospects.  In reality, Mia is a powerful witch learning to harness her magic under her mentor Jessa.  When her long-time crush, Ethan, arrives on leave from the Army the two of them get caught up in an adventure that will change their lives forever.  With only each other to lean on and years of attraction between them they must decide whether to trust in love or go their separate ways.
    Ethan is your typical alpha male lead.  He's hot, well built (thanks to the Army), and fiercely protective of Mia.  In his mind she is out of his reach but that doesn't stop him from wanting her and aching to close the gap that exists between them.  I would have liked a little more character development before his world was turned upside down and I thought he accepted the supernatural world's existence a bit too easily.  However, I appreciated his internal struggle when it came to his relationships with Mia and her brother/his best friend Nolan.
    Mia could have used more development, too.  She seems very closed off and lonely.  She exists in a world where not many really know who she is and that includes her family.  Mia tries very hard to fit into a mold that she thinks will make her family love and accept her.  However that wasn't the impression I got from her family.  Her parents seem very laid back and I felt like they would have understood had she come clean with them about her magic.  I got the sense that her brother, Nolan, knew she was hiding things from him and wanted nothing more than her honesty.  Plus, he seemed to be pushing Mia and Ethan together a little at times.  It's almost as though Makela underestimated her characters and it showed through in the story.
    I enjoy a quick read and it's nice to finish a book in one sitting....BUT...the pacing here is off in comparison to amount of story Makela is trying a get through.  I honestly think the book would have been better had Mia just been a known witch.  Had that been the case, Makela could have focused the story on the werewolves without all the angst of Mia hiding her powers, too.  Perhaps Makela will adjust these things in subsequent books to come.  For now, I will continue the journey with these characters and see where the road leads.
    *I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

    ~ 3 Witchy Wolf Stars ~  The Witch Who Cried Wolf is book one i

    ~ 3 Witchy Wolf Stars ~ 

    The Witch Who Cried Wolf is book one in the Cry Wolf series by Sarah Mäkelä. This story has witch’s and werewolves’s things I enjoy reading about, but it needed to be longer to develop more of the world and characters. It’s a descent start to the series.

    Mia our witch. At times I liked her and at others I got frustrated with her. She lets fear stop her from being the best she can be. I’m not sure if I ever felt her get stronger in this story. I was also confused with her lack of knowledge of the supernatural world and her witchcraft. It mentioned she read her grandmas grimoire, so why the lack of knowledge? How long did she have these powers? When did they start showing? So you can see it was hard to really connect to Mia or figure out what was going on without asking myself questions throughout this book. 

    Ethan our solder guy and long time crush of Mia’s. I wanted more of his story. We don’t get a background story on him. We do get a mention that his parents died in a car accident, but not when this happened. Their is also a promise Ethan made to Mia’s brother, but not what it was or why. Last we are left wondering what happens next for him now that he is a werewolf. 

    Mia’s mentor Jessa the owner of a magic shop, we are left with her in the hospital. Also Mia’s brother it feels like something is going on with him. Not sure. I’m curious to know what’s up with him. 

    As you can see many questions/things are left un-answered which I hope get answered as the series progresses. Lots of things need to be flushed out more. The one thing I did like was the POV mixed narrative. It was always clear who you where reading about. It was also nice to finally see Mia and Ethan hook up. The sex was mediocre and we only get one sex scene at the end. I had trouble connected to this book and fully enjoying the story with all the question’s and lack of world development. 

    The Witch Who Cried Wolf is an ok start to the Cry Wolf series. Many things need to be flushed out and hopeful the author will take care of this as the series moves on.

    A witch who doesn't want to be, a wolf who doesn't know he is, w

    A witch who doesn't want to be, a wolf who doesn't know he is, what a combination. But in this story by
    Sarah Makela it turns into a tale that will hold you from beginning to end and leave you wanting more.
    Mia gets your sympathy from the beginning forced into making a salve by someone she trusts for someone
    she doesn't, imposed on by her brother to pick up his best friend from the the airport and with a boyfriend who
    the less said about the better, she finds it hard to say no, something I can relate to. The best thing is seeing
    Ethan again after all this time.
    Ethan has liked Mia for years but she's the little sister of his best friend and it's getting harder and harder to
    resist. Especially when she is the one to collect him from the airport and they are attacked, making him ask a
    lot of questions that Mia just doesn't want to answer. But how could you resist this description “I wrapped my
    arms around his neck, taking in the sculpted beauty of his bare chest. I couldn’t believe he was this ripped.
    He was God’s gift to women.” Wow, add in loyal, sincere and a warrior,and you have a winner.
    An interesting look at the shifter world this is the first in the series and while it ends on a happily for now
    there is a lot of questions that I can't wait to be answered in the following books.

    The Witch Who Cried Wolf was an enjoyable and fast paced read. I’ve always enjoyed books that dealt with the supernatural so this was right up my alley!

    My only qualms though, are that I felt that there were a couple of clichés:

    ¿Girl falls for brother’s best friend.
    ¿Brother’s best friend likes her back but can’t act on it due to his love and respect for his friendship.

    And potholes in the story:
    ¿Where the heck did she get her Wiccan powers from? How did it develop? Why is she the only one in the family who has them?
    ¿What happens now that Ethan has been changed?

    Hmmm...maybe I missed the answers to my lingering questions since I did read this book at like two in the morning but I really don’t recollect them.

    I really hope the next book in the series expands on the points that I had mentioned. OR maybe I’m really just blind and missed them when they were presented. I don't know.

    Over all, a clever and delightful mesh of Wiccan and Werewolf folklore!
