Cry Wolf (An Alaska Untamed Mystery)
by Lark O. Jensen
4 stars! An intriguing wildlife-themed murder mystery with a naturalist amateur sleuth and her trusty Husky companion. I recommend CRY WOLF to cozy mystery readers, especially those who like nature-themed stories, dog companions, or Alaskan settings.

With a solid story and likable characters, Cry Wolf delivered a satisfying mystery for wildlife or Alaska-loving cozy readers.
I enjoy stories with amateur sleuths. Hence my love for cozies. I had fun with my own list of suspects. As for who the killer was, I got it wrong. No worries though. I still had fun. 4 STARS
If you enjoy armchair travel, learning about the outdoors and the animals, all mixed in with a mystery and likable characters, then pick up Cry Wolf, I wasn’t disappointed.

Cry Wolf was an enjoyable wildlife-themed story with characters I long to know better set in a beautiful place where conditions can be extreme. I am wondering what Ms. Jensen has planned for her characters next. I am excited to find out.

Perfect for fans of Paige Shelton, an Alaskan tour guide is bracing for winter when she realizes that the wolves aren’t the only predators on the prowl.
With boat tours off the coast of Alaska shut down for the winter, tour guide Stacie Calder is joining the dedicated team at the Juneau Wildlife World, a wild animal sanctuary. Along with Sasha, her husky companion, she’s prepared to spend the long season in the scenic park. But not everyone is so chipper about the newcomers—least of all, Stacie’s new manager, Oliver Brownling. He constantly gives Stacie a hard time, specifically because she brought Sasha along with her. That is, until his mauled body is found in a remote part of the sanctuary containing wolves.
When it becomes clear that a human was responsible for the brutal murder, all eyes are on Stacie. Encouraged by her friend, Officer Liam Amaruq of the Alaskan State Troopers, Stacie is resolved to find the murderer but knows that her investigation will be difficult with the long suspect list she’s made. Did the sanctuary director plot to get rid of Oliver? Or maybe it was one of Oliver’s coworkers, upset over a missed promotion? Stacie wonders about some of the newer employees, especially since Oliver’s personality made it easy to make enemies.
With the weather worsening, Stacie and Sasha are forced to stay at the sanctuary with the wolves—and her colleagues. As the storm gets worse, it’s clear that this killer has a taste for blood and may strike again. Will Stacie be able to find the murderer, or will the hunter become the hunted?
