Waiting On Wednesday (18) - Hemlock

Hemlock (Hemlock, #1)

Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
Publication Date: May 8th, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Find on: GoodreadsAmazonBook Depository
Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love.
We are huge fans of werewolf stories and with a murder mystery, the excitement for this book just went up a 3 or 100 notches high!

  8. I don't typically go for the wolfie stories myself, but I'm so digging the cover and premise of this one. I read an excerpt a while back that really impressed me, throw in a murder mystery, and I'm over the moon about this book!
