Willowgrove (Hemlock, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Willowgrove is Kathleen Peacock's riveting conclusion to the Hemlock trilogy, a dark, romantic, paranormal suspense series that pits friendship against survival, and trust against love.

Ever since Mac's best friend, Amy, was murdered, Hemlock has been a dangerous place. But now that Mac, her boyfriend, Kyle, and Amy's ex, Jason, have investigated a mass breakout from Thornhill, a werewolf "rehabilitation" camp, the danger has only grown. Fear of the infection spreading is now at an all-time high, and anyone with a scar is suspected of being a w


What makes Mac even more afraid, though, are the dark experiments that the warden of Thornhill was performing on wolves in a secret asylum called Willowgrove. Uncovering the truth about what happened may be the only way for Mac to save everyone she loves and end her nightmares for good.

This was an interesting end to the series, and I was happy with the way things were resolved.

Mac didn’t make quite so many silly decisions in this book, although she did still take risks. She did stay true to herself and her friends though, which was admirable.

The storyline in this focused on werewolf rights, and fighting for werewolves to be accepted as part of the community, Amy still played a roll, there were some unexpected deaths, and there was also a bit of a plot twist which was unexpected.
There was some romance, and it was clear that the love triangle was definitely not an issue in this book.

The ending was good, and it was great to see Mac finally get a happy ending.
6.5 out of 10


  1. Is it wrong to be so tried of shifters? Even though this series sounds well thought out, I'm not sure I'm up for it. :-/

  2. I thought it was a pretty good ending. I didn't think books 2 and 3 were as strong as book 1. I just think they fizzled a bit. I was happy with the outcome, though.
