The Wolf at Bay (2019) Charlie Adhara (Big Bad Wolf)

The Wolf at BayI love the beginning of the book so much.

“You’ve been standing here staring at that flower shop for fifteen minutes. So is it for her birthday or anniversary, or are you making up for a fight? Because I’ve been married for thirty-two years, and believe me, there are different bouquets for different occasions.”

“I don’t know his favorite flower.” She sucked her teeth mock disapprovingly. “I’m not sure he even has one,” Cooper added defensively. “What about birthday?”

“Something that goes with the gift you got him because you better not just be walking in with some lousy flowers. So which is it?”

Cooper laughed. “What if I want to get him some flowers just because?”

She raised an eyebrow and sniffed. “Uh-huh, right. You-fucked-up-flowers it is, then.”

As I reread this series, I am again reminded how the single point-of-view can be perfect when done right. You know Cooper’s thoughts, you know Cooper’s feelings about Oliver, but you only see Park’s actions from the outside and his reactions to Cooper.
