Book Description

--Book two, Fading Echoes, now available!--

Running from a nightmare stalking her every move, Phoebe Martin arrives in Echo Falls hoping she has finally found a safe place to stop. But trouble has a way of catching up and soon the signs are there.

After a vicious attack in an alley, policeman Aidan O'Bryan is left with Phoebe as his only path to understanding why the Echo Falls werewolf pack - his pack - is being attacked. When another pack member is killed, Phoebe is forced to confront her past before she loses Aidan and everything she has come to love.

Love and duty become one as Aidan strives to prevent Phoebe from becoming the next victim. But with Phoebe just as determined to protect Aidan and her new home, secrets from her past threaten to tear them apart.

Will love give Phoebe the strength to trust Aidan and face her fears, or will her past destroy her future?

*Warning: Contains adult situations and language

4.0 out of 5 stars Live To Read August 30, 2011
By Chels
Format:Paperback
This book takes the reader right into the thick of the action. Phoebe, the main character, is running away from a certain evil who the reader will meet later on in the novel. Phoebe is a tense, cautious, and slightly afraid main character. She has every right to be though, the monster that chased her was the same monster that killed her brother. Phoebe lives life carefully and always with a wary eye on the lookout. When she runs into Aidan, a real alpha man, her life becomes even more confusing. She has to deal with feelings she now has for a person she can't easily protect.

Attacks by the mystery monster continue to happen, forcing Phoebe to come full circle and face her fears before she loses someone very special to her. The reader will enjoy reading about the shifter scenes, the touch of paranormal makes the novel much more interesting than the average love story. The love scenes are steamy and believable, integral in a novel with a romance edge. The characters were worth reading about. Phoebe has her flaws, but those serve to make her a more believable character. Aidan is the handsome protector, he will be a huge draw to female readers. The secondary characters are just as fun to get to know. The ending is exciting and perfect for the novel. The reader will be completely satisfied. This book is recommended to adult readers who enjoy paranormal romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good start to a new series July 6, 2012
By Shari
Format:Kindle Edition
I looked forward to this book and enjoyed it for the most part. I had a few issues with timing on revealing the important elements of the book. The book starts out with Phoebe running away from danger only to be attacked by a werewolf. Now you never see her freak out about it, which was a little weird, but then she doesn't realize there are werewolves in town until later. You suspect what her secret it right away but it all just felt more confusing than interesting.

Aidan is a detective investigating a series of werewolf murders. The town doesn't know they are werewolves, they just think people are being murdered. So Aidan is stepping lightly with his two partners, who are werewolves as well. Aidan saves Phoebe from the werewolf attack and tries to connect with her to let her know she is now a werewolf. See you can already guess the secret since Phoebe doesn't even think about what the attack could mean. But then Phoebe is on the run from someone who keeps finding and stalking her. She thinks she must skip town again, but she is tired of doing that.

In reality, the heroine thinks she can fix everything when she really can't. Then there is Aidan being he alpha of the pack, but I never really bought he was the alpha. He seemed more beta to me than anything. Not a softie, but not someone who leads either.

One main character seems to bite a bullet literally in the book, which felt a little pushed rather than shocking.

Overall, it was a good attempt, but the writing needs some time to mature and fill in the gaps and emotions of the story that I couldn't get into.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Paranormal Story September 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Echo Falls, by Jaime McDougall, is a good paranormal story that I thought it was in need of further development. The story follows Phoebe Martin who is attacked in the opening chapter and wakes up to find a handsome man, Aidan, taking care of her. They have more things in common than they realize.

The first few chapters held my attention but then I found myself questioning the actions of most of the characters. I found it strange that in some situations Aidan, a policeman and werewolf, didn't seem to act like either. The secondary characters didn't have much backstory and so they kind of blended into one another for me. In general, I found the writing to be good but thought some descriptions were awkward, which made me detach from the story.

Overall: While I enjoyed the basic premise, I found that I needed more development of both plot and characters to appreciate it. I think McDougall shows promise so I will probably purchase her other works when they become available.

Edited: Author, Jaime McDougall, kindly pointed out, "Echo Falls is just over 59,500 words and the print novel is 232 pages long." Apologies, Jaime, for the confusion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Werewolf romance strikes again February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The book started off strong, I was into the story and the characters however it took about 3/4 of the book to actually learn about the conflict. It was really vague through a majority of the book and I kept wondering "okay, so what's the deal? When is something going to happen?!" Overall the book was good and I don't feel that I wasted my time, it definitely was worth it for a free book. There was a lot of predictable elements of a werewolf romance, for the most part you read one you've read them all. I was hoping for a bit more of a twist, but hey. Not Shab.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good werewolf read February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good read that gets 3.5 * in my opinion. It mixed traditional Were myths in with some new stuff. By the middle of the book, I had already figured out who the mole was and that was short of a bummer. If you enjoy Weres, romance and an easy read, this is your book.
