Book 5 in Terry Spear's Silver Town Wolf Series
IT’S A SILVER TOWN CHRISTMAS, AND THE WOLVES ARE READY TO HOWL
CJ Silver and his brothers have returned to Silver Town eager to reconnect with the pack. And with the she-wolf newcomers renovating the old Victorian Silver Town Hotel, it looks like the holidays are going to be very merry indeed.
Laurel MacTire and her sisters are excited to be living in a wolf-run town, but they have another motive— to solve the fifty-year-old mystery of their aunt’s disappearance. When CJ gets a whiff of trouble brewing, his protective instincts kick in—now Laurel has a hotel opening to prepare for, a mystery to solve, and a brawny wolf shifter underfoot. Perhaps she should have resisted the temptation to kiss him so wickedly in the snow.

“There is nothing like a marvelously captivating paranormal romance by Terry Spear to get you in the holiday spirit.” —Tome Tender
Praise for A Highland Wolf Christmas:
“A holiday treat —romance that sizzles and entertains.” —Fresh Fiction
“A witty, passionate paranormal romance that will lift your spirits…Ms. Spear is an amazingly gifted storyteller.” —Romance Junkies
Spear's 17th Heart of the Wolf paranormal (after SEAL Wolf Hunting) sticks close to a reliable formula. Having settled in as deputy sheriff of Silver Town, Colo., CJ Silver feels safe and comfortable enough to seek a mate. Laurel MacTire and her sisters are new in town, renovating the old hotel and uncovering the town's secrets. The MacTire sisters are investigating the disappearance of a relative, and soon they turn up a series of duplicities and convolutions among the living and the dead. Though most of Silver Town's inhabitants are werewolves, all suggestions of paranormal adventure are resolved through ordinary means, robbing many moments of their haunting appeal. Spear's characters are harmless and likable, though a trifle quick-tempered, but structural problems and too much focus on mundane details slow the pace to the point of tedium. The Christmastime conclusion is endearing but predictable.

Shifter Christmas with a dash of Ghosts
First off, you do not need to read the previous books to enjoy this really good Christmas werewolf romance. There seem to be couples from previous books in the story, but you don't need to know their story to enjoy this one.
The three MacTire sisters were a little hard to keep separated at times. Being introduced to them in such quick succession made them all sort of roll into one for me and it took awhile before I was able to separate them into their own individuals. They have very similar personalities, maybe they become more distinct in later books? I did love them. I loved their tenacity in trying to find their aunt, and how loyal they were to each other - with just enough bickering to keep it a little interesting.
C.J. was all big bad wolf - in a good way. Willing to anything to prove to Laurel that he's the right wolf for her, he goes out of his way to make her feel at home in Silver Town. Their little adventure/dates were soooo much fun. I wish I could do every single one of them. I could really see their connection. It grew in a very natural way, which can sometimes be hard to find in a romance book. They became friends, then lovers, then more. I loved it.
The mystery surrounding the inn, the sisters, and the ghost hunter wasn't so much fun. At times it was a little hard to follow. There were just enough creepy and scary moments to add that nice element to the story though. I really liked the little twist at the end for the ghost story - it was a really nice finishing touch.
