It's springtime on Cranberry Island and love is in the air. It seems like every woman has the hots for buff trainer Dirk De Leon. He and his equally-gorgeous business partner, Vanessa Black, are leading a weight-loss retreat at the Gray Whale Inn, forcing innkeeper Natalie Barnes to lighten up her butter-laden breakfast menu. The mood on the island darkens when two grisly discoveries are made. The first is a skeleton walled up at the island's lighthouse. The second is a corpse of the fresh variety--the handsome Dirk! Could the spirit that once embodied the skeletal remains--perhaps the lighthouse keeper who disappeared a century ago--be responsible for Dirk's death?

Worst of all, there's a killer on the loose, picking off people like ripe fruit. When Charlene's lover?the handsome chaplain with a stake in the development? is stabbed to death, Natalie promises to find the murderer for her griefstricken friend, who's also the number-one suspect

Finding clues at Fernand's home that support her suspicion of murder, Natalie's hunt for answers places her next on the killer's list. Will she be able to solve this murder masterpiece before it's too late?

But when Heath starts spending long nights at the office with his new associate--a dead-ringer for Career Day Barbie--Sophie smells trouble. And when her professional relationship with her big new client--who also happens to be Texas's brilliantly blue-eyes most eligible bachelor--begins to sizzle, she wonders if her animal instincts are leading her in the wrong direction. Just when it seems that things can't get any more complicated, they do. The Houston werewolf pack has sniffed Sophie out, and their message is chillingly clear: you're either with us or against us. And unless she can prove that she's with them, the next full moon may just be her last."--p. [4] of cover

Sophie's life gets a little more hairy when her long-estranged father, Luc, arrives in the Live Music Capital to attend the werewolves' annual Howl and reconnect with his daughter. But Luc's plans fall apart after he's accused of murder and arrested by his archrival, Wolfgang, leader of the Houston pack (and one notoriously dirty dog). Wolfgang drools at the thought of Luc's impending execution, but Sophie won't let her father die without a fight. Determined to prove his innocence, she and her friends set out to find the real killer. Along the way, Sophie must deal with taboo attractions, Machiavellian intrigues, sinister agendas, and hair-raising betrayals."--p. [4] of cover
