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 charactersMany 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 reflecting that reality The story takes place in the rural community of Blackwater, Kansas and alternates between the characters of Sadie and Henley Sadie is grieving the death of her brother and also looking for answers Henley is eighteen years old and knows the only way she can have a decent future is if she gets away from her family and her godforsaken hometown But with so many secrets hidden in this town, these two women might never get what they want.While I liked both of the female main characters, I was drawn towards Henley and her story Henley s relationship with her mother was pretty heartbreaking and you could really identify with her longing to seek out a better life In my opinion she was the heart of the story I can t quite put my finger on it but there seemed to be something missing in this story and that s the reason it didn t reach great status and sits just at good level I guess I was left with a feeling of wanting , even if I m not really sure what that is in this case The only small criticism I can really articulate is I thought the character of Jason was not fully developed Overall, a solid read and I do think there is potential for many readers to be able to connect with certain characters or storylines As grim as the story can be, it is true to life than many other novels out there.Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review 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 Shane has just died under mysterious circumstances His wife, Crystle, doesn t seem as upset as a loving wife should, and the local police officer refuses to investigate Henley is a young eighteen year old, and the daughter of an addict who cleans the house of the richest family in town when she s sober Henley is currently dating the son of the rich guy, and she s also the cousin of Crystle, the wife who doesn t give two snips.The book is about how their stories intertwine as we learn about a town riddled with drug problems, secrets, and maybe murder In addition to Shane, a local man and his daughter were both found dead in the woods, and Sadie gets and concerned as she finds links between all of these incidents, even as she struggles to maintain control over the shambles of her own life.I saw some people saying that this book was pretty depressing and I will be the first to agree this is so It s a little like J.K Rowling s CASUAL VACANCY in the sense that it shows people at their worst and nobody is completely good I personally like books that show realistic portrayals of the sometimes toxic environment that small towns can breed Humans are capable of a lot of good, but sometimes they do some pretty horrible things, too I was impressed by the spectrum of the emotions portrayed in THE WOLF WANTS IN, and how it addresses grief, greed, and ambition.Both POVs were well done and I liked how they began to intertwine Around page 200, I did find myself wondering how the story would wrap up when it still seemed so unfinished, but the ending didn t disappoint me I actually thought it ended on a note of hope all of our endings are inevitable, but if we re lucky, we get to hold the pen as we decide how the last chapter finishes Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 4 stars
