A Wolf After My Own Heart

Maryjanice Davidson. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $8.99 mass market (360p) ISBN 978-1-4926-9704-6
Davidson returns to the delightfully bonkers paranormal world of Bears Behaving Badly for this hilarious second BeWere My Heart romance. Lila Kai’s life has been a bumpy ride—so, though she is unaware of the supernatural, it gives her just a moment’s pause when she hits a wolf on the way into her new home in Lilydale, Minn., only to get out of the decommissioned ambulance she’s driving and see that there’s no body. She’s likewise unfazed when, moments later, two kids flag her down for medical assistance and lead her to an abandoned bear cub. Lila attempts to call animal control—but that’s not how things are done in the predominantly shifter community of Lilydale. Instead, her strange ride lands her in the path of Oz Adway, a wolf shifter, accountant, and the newest field agent for the IPA, a shifter protection organization. Oz is immediately curious about Lila—and just as quickly smitten. As a series of strange occurrences plague Lilydale, Lila, Oz, and a small band of local foster children land neck-deep in potentially lethal weirdness. Davidson sandwiches her trademark laugh-out-loud moments between somewhat heavier beats and stream-of-consciousness inner monologues. The result is as thought-provoking as it is funny and guaranteed to entertain. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Literary. (Feb.)
