Review: Hunt by Emme Wesson

Hunt (Children of the Hunt #1) by Emme Wesson
Synopsis (Amazon):
Cory Flynn never imagined she would find her best friend Rene dead. When a PI from California comes looking for Rene Lipton six months later, Cory's world may never be the same. She wants to help with the investigation, but will the secret she's hiding help or hinder him?

Bodhi Cooper has come to New Hampshire looking for his brother. When his inquiries keep leading him back to Cory Flynn, he doesn't know if he should trust her, but he may have no choice in the matter. If he wants to find his brother's killer, he'll need Cory's help. But Bodhi has a secret of his own. He's a wolf and his secret could jeopardize Cory's life.
My Thoughts: I liked this book overall, but I wasn't too keen on the secrets that were kept. Admittedly, the keeping of secrets is something that bothers me more than most people but I was confused as to why Cory jumped through so many hoops when she could have just come out and told Bodhi what was what once she'd been given the all clear. Honestly, the keeping secrets issue is something that I struggle with often in books, so take all this minor ranting with a grain of salt.

That aside, I did like the mystery and the clues that were uncovered as Bodhi and Cory worked to find out who had killed Rene. The overall world with the different styles of leadership amongst the wolves was intriguing. I had another moment of WTF? when Bodhi was told something fairly important about his father that should have been divulged years earlier but I could accept why that particular secret was kept.

Interesting world building and I enjoyed the resolution but I personally could have done with less in the secret department. While I can understand how some of the secrets were pivotal to the plot, they still make me vaguely rage-y. Just like clowns give me the heebies.

  1. Hmm. I get the feeling secret keeping was a thing with this book. YOU HAVE A SECRET KEEPING THING.

    By the way, I'm keeping a secret from you. The secret is that I think you're awesome.
