Les Do Books
Wild by Meghan O'Brien
Tara talks excitedly with Lise MacTague, author and fellow reviewer at The Lesbian Review, about the book club pick of the month, Wild by Meghan O’Brien. Listen to find out what it’s about, what they loved about it, and what character they hope gets her own book in the future.
This podcast is seriously full of spoilers, so make sure you read Wild before listening.
From the back of the book:
The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love.
Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings. Selene is convinced that love and friendship can only bring her pain.
Forensic pathologist Eve Thomas is well-acquainted with the pain of romantic love. Swearing off relationships after having her heart broken by a cheating ex, Eve throws herself into her work: catching murderers. When Selene comes to her aid after an attack by a masked man in Golden Gate Park, Eve is shocked by how powerfully she is drawn to her mysterious savior.
Shaken by her own feelings for Eve, Selene is even more terrified to realize she isn’t even close to being the scariest monster stalking San Francisco. There is someone out in the city who is killing for pleasure, and his next target is the one woman he thinks might be able to stop him: Eve.
Tara also announces the next book club pick, Blurred Lines by KD Williamson.
