I just finished and loved Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock. It was an amazing book that I'd definitely recommend :)
Hemlock is about a town attacked by four werewolf killings. One of the deaths that occurs is Amy, Mackenzie's (the main character's) best friend. Along with her friends, Jason and Kyle, she tries to figure out what happened to and what werewolf killed Amy.
Hemlock had amazing characters and one of the few love triangles I am ever torn about. The main character, Mackenzie (or Mac) was a really strong, kind person. Both her best friends, Kyle and Jason, were extremely different. Jason had been torn apart ever since Amy's death. Kyle, however, was a strong guy that Mac really leaned on. They both were such awesome characters.
Also, the plot was great! Hemlock kept me guessing until the end. There was so much mystery and suspense involved. The romance was also great. I really loved this book and I am looking forward to the next one. I'd give Hemlock five out of five flowers.
