Review of Shiver by Tiffinie Helmer

I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest review.
He’s a wolf without a pack... Graphic novelist, Aidan Harte, writes about the kind of heroes he knows he’ll never be. He’s returned to the forgotten gold mining town of Chatanika, Alaska to scatter his father’s ashes and close out the bastard’s life. He plans to get in and get out  without seeing a soul. That is, until things take a deadly turn. 

She’s a raven who’s clipped her wings...

Raven Maiski’s thrilled Old Man Harte is dead. But she’s not happy about the return of his son, Aidan—her soul mate and enemy—who promised never to step foot back in Chatanika. If she doesn't run him out of town fast, he'll uncover what she's hidden from him.

When word of the miser’s death spreads, danger erupts in a hunt for gold
that will either lead to redemption...or blood.
This book deserved a full FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS which I gave this story willingly and happily. I was absolutely AMAZED with this story. It was downright addicting! Shiver was heartfelt, touching, passion filled, and surprisingly amusing, with a touch of murder thrown in the mix. I fell in absolute lust with Aidan and Raven was such a likable person, even if I did want to smack her on the back of her head a few times for being so stubborn and pigheaded. But their son, Fox was such a charmer and a true sweetheart and incredibly wise and brave. Eva and Fiona were two other characters I liked immensely too. They were both sweet, yet sassy spitfires that had no trouble telling it like it is. This story was well-written, with the kind of characters you would like to meet in real life, and a compelling plot that just kept me attached to my Nook for hours. I hope you pick this book up September 9th on the release day. If not, you will miss out on a superb read. This was one emotional rollercoaster ride I'm glad I got on, one I enjoyed greatly. I HIGHLY and I mean HIGHLY recommend this book.

  2. Marie, I couldn't agree more with you! The 3rd installmant of From the Edge series os AMAZING!!! How can you not fall in lovewith everyone especially Aidan! At times you just want to shake Raven , but you can forgive her she not only feels deeply but loves deeply too.
