Blurb from goodreads:
Fans of shapeshifter romance will be thrilled to spend Christmas with the Silver Town werewolf pack...
C.J. Silver is eager to help the new she-wolves in town renovate the old hotel in time for the holidays, especially if it means spending time under the mistletoe with the alluring Laurel MacTire.
The bustle in the long abandoned hotel attracts the attention of human ghosthunters out to prove the place haunted, but the bigger problem is keeping them from discovering the werewolves in Silver Town. CJ and Laurel have to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. Working together is a surprisingly hot holiday treat for two attractive and clever wolf shifters.
This was my second book by Ms. Spear and I enjoyed it much more than the first book I read, in part because I now had familiarity with the world and was less confused. "A Silver Wolf Christmas" was a fast and enjoyable read, and made my wait at the Department of Motor Vehicles much more pleasant. :)
C.J. is attracted to Laurel but she and her sisters have a secret, one that keeps her and her sisters from getting close to him or anyone else in town or in the pack Yet, slowly, despite herself, she starts to get involved with him, much to the delight of her sisters. For years, their secret, and their work, has kept them traveling and they want to settle down but can't until Laurel does. C.J. is patient yet determined to win over Laurel and when he learns her secret, he's eager to help, even though it may hurt him and his brothers.
I loved learning more about the werewolves in this world and seeing the pack's interactions. C.J. was delightful, sweet, funny, and honorable. Laurel was loyal, loving, and smart. Together, they were a lot of fun. The secret, and the mystery, was convoluted at times but it also kept me guessing. I was partially correct, which was fun. There was some predictability and a few cliches but overall, it was a light fun read. I'd love to read more stories involving Laurel's sisters.
