    Atmospheric, emotional, and compelling, I found The Wolf Wants In to be a story full of heartbreak and hope Laura McHugh has woven together a narrative that is equal parts suspenseful mystery and moving study of poverty and the effects it has on those drowning in its grasp Highly recommended for readers who love gritty literature with unique characters Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley.

    3.5 starsThis is not the type of book you read when you are looking for something light and easy It s a pretty depressing read which isn t surprising because it deals with tough issues like grief, addiction, and divorce to name a few It s almost like the town constantly has a cloud over it and the only way to get some sun is to hitch a ride out of there So much sadness and pain Life isn t all sunshine and roses though and this book does a good job in ref

    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestWow, I don t think I ve been on a good book streak that lasted this long in a while When I picked this up I had my doubts, because so many thrillers try to play the just like Gillian Flynn card and fail to measure up 9 times out of 10 Lucky for me, THE WOLF WANTS IN is the 1 book out of 10 that reaches the bar.Told in dual POVs, THE WOLF WANTS IN is about two women Sadie is a middle aged mom, divorced, whose brother S

    Not quite as much of a thriller as I thoughtI don t think gripping novel of suspense or thriller are totally accurate descriptions of The Wolf Wants In These words were included in the publisher s blurb as of 6 19 2019 These elements didn t appear much until roughly the 60% mark Around then, we finally buckle down on trying to solve the murders in this town.Because McHugh focuses on weaving the characters stories together and explaining how they are connected, The Wol

    McHugh fuels her tale with the sort of stark bleakness that charged Springsteen s Nebraska album Blackwater is a country town somewhere outside of Kansas City and the teens don t know what they want but they want out It s a desolate country filled with opioid addicts, debt lenders, broken marriages, and broken people Told through narrative voices of a woman Sadie and a teenage girl whose paths meander near each other Sadie s brother died from a seeming heart attack but she s

    The rural town of Blackwater, Kansas is in crisis with few job prospects, the kids will do anything to get out and those who don t usually meet an untimely end at the bottom of a pill bottle.Sadie Keller refuses to believe her brother Shane, only in his thirties, died of natural causes Crystle, Shane s wife of one year, doesn t seem too devastated over her husband s death and isn t interested in looking further into his death.The town is consumed by the discovery of the remains of

    When Sadie s brother, Shane, dies of a opioid overdose, Sadie s family is both confused and suspicious Shane would never have committed suicide, which is what the police think, and Shane s wife is acting oddly So Sadie starts looking around Haley is a part of the Pettit family, a long line of petty criminals and drug addicts She s so eager to leave the small town of Blackwater, Kansas, where everyone knows exactly who her family is and her mother has drifted back into addiction She just needs to

    The Wolf Wants In is a powerful read The opioid crisis is only one part of the story It s also about grief, hopelessness, poverty and family ties Honesty, it s sad and a bit depressing, but it s still a worthwhile investment of your time Just know that the material in this story is heavy and relevant Told in two perspectives, these eventually tie together for a dramatic ending that will stay with you for days It s thought provoking and chilling in the best way to engage readers with the narrative You w

    Another wonderful book to add to McHugh s canon The Wolf Wants In delves into the opioid epidemic ravaging the United States, even small towns like Blackwater in the Midwest While not a beach read, this book will hook readers from all genres with its mysterious characters, clever plot turns, and realistic setting Being a Midwesterner myself, the setting is very well done McHugh adds in details that most of us in the area know and silently judge , which adds credibility to her plot The ending achieves what her
