Shiver: Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver is a YA paranormal novel; the first in a series of three.

Grace has had an ongoing fascination with the wolves that appear each winter foraging near her home.  In spite of a traumatic attack when she was younger, Grace is drawn to a wolf with yellow eyes, the one she feels was responsible for saving her life.

When she meets Sam, the attraction is intense and immediate, and Grace suspects that somehow (?) Sam is the wolf with yellow eyes.  Told from alternating points of view, we follow the Grace/Sam story and learn that the wolves of Mercy Falls are human in the warm months of summer and wolves during the winter.  Definitely a "suspend your disbelief" paranormal story, I still found it appealing.

Paranormal/Fantasy.  2010.  400 pages.
