A coyote shape shifter, Mercy Thompson excels at finding trouble. Her former boss is a gremlin, her neighbor is the alpha werewolf, and her vampire friend drives a Scooby Doo themed Volkswagen bus. Despite her friends, Mercy tries to live a normal life as a mechanic. When a young werewolf comes into town looking for work, Mercy offers him a job at her shop and a home with the alpha werewolf, Adam. Soon after, Adam is attacked and severely hurt by an unknown enemy. It’s up to the coyote to solve the case before anyone else gets injured. I have read several of this series and have enjoyed all of them. It’s fun to see what sort of trouble Mercy gets herself into and how she is going to get herself out. Her skill at solving mysteries just makes it even better.

THE FIRST MERCY THOMPSON NOVEL Moon Called is the novel that introduced Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson to the world and launched a #1 bestselling phenomenon... Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, and while she was raised by werewolves, she can never be one of them, especially after the pack ran her off for having a forbidden love affair. So she's turned her talent for fixing cars into a business and now runs a one-woman mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State. But Mercy's two worlds are colliding. A half-starved teenage boy arrives at her shop looking for work, only to reveal that he's a newly changed werewolf--on the run and desperately trying to control his animal instincts. Mercy asks her neighbor Adam Hauptman, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, for assistance. But Mercy's act of kindness has unexpected consequences that leave her no choice but to seek help from those she once considered family--the werewolves who abandoned her... "In the increasingly crowded field of kick-ass supernatural heroines, Mercy stands out as one of the best."--Locus
