The Wolf Wants In is a suspenseful read that will keep you turning pages as you try to determine what factors are at play in the rural town of Blackwater, Kansas. Sadie Keller just isn't satisfied that her brother died of natural causes. His untimely death just doesn't ring true to Sadie. While police try to tell Sadie everyone grieves differently, there seems to be something off about the way her sister-in-law is acting. As Sadie digs deeper, the questions just keep stacking up and the answers aren't coming. 18 year old Henley Pettit just wants to escape the small town. Henley thought her mother Misty had finally conquered her drug addiction, but Misty hasn't been home in days and Henley is beginning to worry. Then a child's skull is found in the woods and the story keeps twisting and turning as the plot thickens.
I could not read this book fast enough. Laura McHugh does a great job of truly drawing you into the story and her pacing is phenomenal. I truly enjoyed this book and it was a five star read for me.
I received this book courtesy of Spiegel and Grau through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
