Wolf Bond by Elodie Parkes is a wonderful addition to The Venn Pack in Love series. The story is full of excitement and has an excellent plot suitable for an adult and new adult audience. This contemporary story takes place in a small US town that has recently been revived as a tourist destination. Wolf shifter and Private Investigator, Eden Farrell, relocates to the community to seek out his long-lost cousin. He meets the Alpha’s sister and local café owner, Liberty Venn. They are instantly attracted to one another and form a bond. Problem is the dangers from his profession follow him.
Elodie Parkes does a great job carrying over issues from the first book, Surprising the Alpha, to this second book in the series, Wolf Bond. For example, the wolves being able to mask their scent to hide from the hunters played an important roll. Her characters are well-developed and believable. Liberty is a fun heroine. She has been lonely until Eden enters into her life. I had a lot of respect for Eden. He suffered some tragedies in his youth. As a result, he wanted to pursue a profession that would allow him to do some good in the world. He is brave and determined. The two make a magnetic couple. I loved the mystery in the plot. I though the case that Eden was working on was fascinating and tied in well with the series. Some interesting things come into play toward the end of the story that I’m looking forward to reading about in the next book. Wolf Bond had a satisfying conclusion that I enjoyed.
