Reds are considered bad news. Our heroine is a red and the hero is a werewolf. Odd pairing, but it works. I found the various family dynamics very well done. The estranged daughter, the meddlesome mother that means well, sisterly bonds, friends close enough to be family. All the relationships were well developed. I read the whole book in one sitting. When I tried to stop, I couldn't because I had to know what was going to happen next.
