Review: Beneath A Rising Moon
Title: Beneath A Rising Moon
Author: Keri Arthur
Series: Ripple Creek Werewolf #1
Neva Grant is a werewolf on a mission. Her twin sister, Savannah was one of the women attacked by a crazed killer, but unlike the others she is still alive. Neva's plan is to continue her sister's detective work and find out who is behind the murders. She goes into the Sinclair mansion while they are having a dance (where werewolves go to find a partner) and is determined to dance with Duncan Sinclair so she can gain access to the mansion. Neva's plan works, but the attacks continue happening and Duncan is suspicious of her motives.
Neva and Duncan want the same thing, to figure out who is behind the murders. I wasn't sure if they would work well together, but they proved me wrong and worked as a great team. Beneath a Rising Moon has the whole Romeo and Juliette vibe going on. Neva's father is against the dance and only believes that wolves should have relations with their soul mate. Duncan is a former playboy and used to have a different dance partner at every turn.
The relationship between Neva and Duncan started off on a purely sexual basis then slowly morphed to a sweet romance. Duncan's suspicion of Neva causes distrust in both parties. I found myself rooting for their relationship since it seemed they had so much against them.
I recommend this book if you enjoy paranormal books that have a who-dun-it aspect.
