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.

This was just an ok read for me. The ideas were good but I found myself impatient with Mia, the main character. She seemed to go iver the same thoughts in different eays, over and over. I also wnted her to get a backbone. . It was a bit slow for me, too. When I started chaptr two, I wondered if my reader had skipped back to the beginning, there was so much recap of chapter one. Maybe if the book were longer I would be able to get into it. Thanks for lettng me read this for free. But I don't think I will continue the series.

This is more like a chapter book, which I usually stay away from. The story is well done. The story was left hanging. I read the synopsis of the second story, it does not seem to be a continuation of these characters. We shall see.

While the contemporary romance is an important part of the story, the urban fantasy is more compelling. There are plenty of plot twists and some really humorous situations. The characters are very well thought out, and I enjoyed it very much. Except that now I have to get more of the series to answer those questions left unanswered!

This is a fantasy-paranormal read with a little romance thrown in for good measure. What happens when Mia, a witch, finds out that her magic she has been used, without her knowledge, to harm another? And know they want her blood. Now she finds herself face to face with creatures she never thought were real. And then throw into the mix her brother's best friend, Ethan, just home from deployment into the mix who she has had a crush on since she was child and things get heated. With everyone's lives who she cares about now threatened will she be able to trust Ethan with her secret? This story had enough suspense to keep me turning the pages hoping for best possible outcome for everyone. The main characters were well developed and although the ending left some things unanswered it wasn't enough for me for me to mind. If you are a fan of suspenseful magic filled stories with a heroine who discovers herself along the way then this is the story for you.

I really liked this storyline, can't wait for the next book as this one kind of had a cliffhanger. Received FREE for an honest review.

Mia is a shy little flower of a witch, and Jessa is her best friend, who runs and owns an herbal shop in town. Some people realize that she is really a witch, but most just come for the fun of it and the novelty. When a client asks Mia to make a potion, he doesn't give her enough information and the healing salve goes wrong. Now Mia has werewolves hunting her down and threatening her family and she doesn't really now which camp to believe. Ethan has just spent the last year plus on deployment overseas and he is looking forward to being home, even if he isn't exactly looking forward to spending time with Mia. It's not that he doesn't like Mia, that's just it, he's been in love with her since seventh grade, but you just don't go after your best friends little sister, it is just not done. This year, when Ethan gets involved in the werewolf attack on Mia, and then see's the treatment that a bad boyfriend subjects her to, it is almost more than he can handle. This is a cute story of friends figuring out their places with each other long after college and if it's ok to finally date your best friends little sister or not. A story of a witch and a werewolf and a friendship and partnership to help each other when one is injured, but also to keep the supernatural hidden from the rest of the world. Definitely a young adult type story, one sexual scene, not too explicit, but enough to be mentioned. Fun, enjoyable story for anyone who likes the witch, werewolf, paranormal genre.

The witch who cried wolf by Sarah Makela Mia is a witch that doesn’t practice her powers so that makes her powers not very strong. She has been keeping her powers a secret from her family and friends. Her brother gets her to pick up his mate Ethan from the airport whom she has been lusting after for years.  While at the airport Mia and Ethan are attacked by a werewolf and Mia uses her powers exposing her to Ethan. Mia then has to tell Ethan that he could become a werewolf. Finally the feelings that Mia thought were only on her side turn out to be more than one sided.  Mia and Ethan get dragged into the world of the werewolves that neither of them they knew anything about. Ethan is given a chance to learn what he is going to become from the alphas son.  Not wanting to give any spoilers I’m leaving it at this. It is a beautiful love story of two people who want to deny their love as they feel that is the right thing to do. Finally giving into what is meant to be.  I received this arc for my honest review and this is my honest review.

Witch + Wolf = A Spellbinding Howling Read!  Awesome story!  I loved the fast pace, it just seems to fit perfectly with the storyline, characters and all of the twists and turns.  It certainly did not lack for adventure, entertainment nor hotness!  I liked the characters but I wish that there was more about them all!  I loved Mia and the fact that she is a witch!  Add in some wolves to the mix and it makes for one awesome ride of discovery, conquering of fears, romance and of course things you never thought would happen!  You can never have too many Supernaturals in a story, so I love that this is not a “witch” book or a “werewolf” book, but a great Paranormal story that defies being “lumped” into one category.  Unfortunately I do have to say that I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more paranormal or magic happening.  I feel that this story has a lot of potential and I guarantee that I will be reading all of the books that Sarah writes in this series (and any others too!), but I thought there could have been a LOT more story put into this one.  So while I thoroughly enjoyed the story, I felt like I was missing parts here and there.  Sometimes it seemed to move so quickly that I had to go back & re-read it again, but I didn’t miss anything – it truly did happen like that!  The way that some parts jump ahead made me wonder if this was a longer story that was shortened.  Don’t get me wrong, it still is a great story!  The parts that I am referring to are not ones that omit storyline “meat” so to speak, but ones that make you “assume” what went on.  Maybe I have just become accustomed to having things more detailed and spelled out (get it “spelled” out, Mia is a witch… *snicker*), or maybe Sarah doesn’t want to “bore” you with those details that you already know about, and then has more “word count” for more story.  For example we know that Mia is a witch, but Ethan doesn’t know that; so when he sees her shooting fire balls, of course he wonders about it.  But they never get to that conversation that night, and the next day they meet to have “The Conversation”, but the words are never actually said and then all of a sudden he DOES know about her being a witch.  Then she says she didn’t know werewolves existed, but Ethan asks her why she didn’t recognize someone as the wolf.  I don’t want to say more and give spoilers, because I try to NEVER give spoilers!  But this was the best way I could explain what I mean about the “missing” parts.  Like I said, maybe these all get explained in the books that follow or maybe it is just me over-analyzing it and wanted things to be spelled out for me!  Again, get it?  Spelled out – witch – LOL  Since this is book 1, it is obviously the only book I have read in this series, so hopefully future books will “re-visit” these types of “omissions“ to explain the whys and whatnots and then it will all become clear…crystal ball clear.  ¿   I am not going to count this against my review rating, simply because the storyline itself was not disturbed or broken, and because I have the feeling that this book is a set-up or introduction for a multi book series and that this one is just easing you into their world and giving you just a hint or taste of what’s to come.  There is definitely enough going on to have piqued my interest, has my curiosity aroused and has made me hunger for more!  All in all I did enjoy reading this book quite a bit and I think it was a great start to the series.  I can’t wait to start on the next one!

I received a copy of "The Witch who Cried Wolf" from the author she just asked me to give an honest review of what I read. I truly enjoyed reading this story. The author did an excellent job of creating the characters. I enjoyed the mix of witches and werewolves in the same story it added a little spice. The story is well written and the characters are strong and loving, they have tragedy, family relationships and love intertwined. I would definately recommend this story and I can't wait to read her next book so I can find out what happens with Mia and Ethans relationship and with the exciting changes facing Mia and Ethan in the paranormal world.

This is definitely for young adults. Too much 'emotional junk and sex' for my taste.

"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.* Shannon, My Secret Book Spot

~ 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, 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!
