Gray Moon Rising S.M. Reine

It’s been almost a year since Rylie Gresham was bitten by a werewolf on Gray Mountain. Now something is beckoning her back to the place she was attacked, along with every other werewolf in the world. But they aren’t the only ones heeding the call. A group of hunters notices them gathering and sees it as their chance to wipe out the entire species.

Seth is about to graduate high school when he learns of the final hunt. He secretly plans to save Rylie and his werewolf brother even though he has to play along with the hunters to do it. But Rylie doesn’t want to be saved. She’s already decided to solve her problems with a silver bullet if answers aren’t waiting on Gray Mountain.

One way or another, everything is about to end—whether it means Rylie’s liberation or the end of her life…

This is the last book of Seasons of the Moon series. Not the end of Rylie, Able, and Seth's stories though. Love this series about werewolves and their change. Hunters and witches involved in the story also. Rylie has done a lot of growing up since the first book, trying to control herself and the wolf at the same time is a great feat especially during the full moon. Trying come to grips about what she did in the winter and not be a bother to Aunt Gwyn anymore by going to the Sanctuary and learning to control her life. The call to Gray Mountain changes everything for Rylie and if she doesn't get the answers she wants......

Grim Discovery (Aisling Grimlock, #3) by Amanda M. Lee

Aisling Grimlock’s life is a mess.
Her mother might be back from the dead.
Wraiths appear to be after her again.
Her father is definitely up to something.
Michigan’s most calamity-prone grim reaper is in a pickle, and the only one she can trust with a haunting secret is her boyfriend Griffin.
Aisling is determined to find answers before she unloads a heavy dose of truth on her family, but when things become dangerous, Aisling’s life is in jeopardy … again.
The wraiths are back and on the move, and their primary goal appears to be getting their hands on Aisling. They’ve enlisted other supernatural help this time, and when gargoyles literally start dropping from the sky Aisling has no choice but to be honest.
The Grimlocks are at a crossroad. The only thing they know for certain is that they will fight together to make sure they don’t die alone.

I am so glad I found this series, I love Aisling's character and the crazy things she gets herself into. Of course she is faced with a very serious situation and not exactly sure how to deal with it. She can't keep it all bottled up inside although she attempts to. With the help of her family and friends she able to get past her secret and find out what is really going on about why someone is after her.

Grim Offerings Aisling Grimlock #2 by Amanda Lee

Being a grim reaper isn’t easy, but answering to family is even worse.

Between argumentative souls, overbearing older brothers and everyday nonsense, Aisling Grimlock has her hands full.

When a run-of-the-mill job goes awry, Aisling finds herself in a mess. The soul she was supposed to collect is still amongst the living, and the man who wanted to kill him is dead instead.

Detective Griffin Taylor is returning from an undercover assignment, and the first thing he wants to do is reconnect with Aisling. Her brother Aidan is giving him fits, though, and the rest of the family isn’t making things much easier.

When wraiths start showing up again, and a member of the Grimlock family is seriously hurt, it’s all hands on deck for the final showdown. Unfortunately for the Grimlocks, they can never do anything the normal way.

Aisling is chafing under worry and pressure, and her family is circling the wagons. It’s going to take everyone working together to survive – and when the final fight is finally waged, a huge secret is revealed that will change the Grimlocks’ world forever.

I love Aisling so much more now, her quirkiness and attitude make me laugh and laugh. She is a great strong girl that goes through the hard knocks of being a grim reaper. She gets herself in more trouble! The family is once again up to no good and trying to protect their one and only sister and dad's daughter. Aisling trying to be independent only gets her so far. Sometimes I forget she's not a teenager when I read the book. The secret at the end is mind blowing-but I won't spoil it here.

Wild Montana Sky by Debra Holland

When her brother announces his marriage, Elizabeth Hamilton suddenly becomes unwanted and unwelcome in the only home she’s ever known. To escape the new mistress of the house, Elizabeth accepts the invitation of her best friend to journey to Montana.

The dirt streets and wooden storefronts of Sweetwater Springs and the hardships of ranch living are worlds away from the refinements of Gilded Age Boston, yet Elizabeth is filled with new hope—and buoyed by a wealthy banker’s attentions. Yet it’s cowboy Nick Sanders who slowly awakens her heart and helps her recognize her strengths. And when a deadly influenza epidemic strikes, Elizabeth will fight for those she loves—and the life she’s ready to claim. (less)

Thanks to kindle unlimited just finished listening/reading Wild Montana Sky by Debra Holland.
Loved this story about romance between a Bostoner and the wild Montana Sky. The story of Elizabeth and her long time friend Pamela who married and moved to Montana, teaches Elizabeth a little bit about life and how society norms in the East doesn't always play well out in the west amoung the cattle, horses, and Indians. It was a great story. Look forward to listen/read the next one.
