Owen has to move and find another pack, but is asked by his cousin’s pack to help a neighboring pack when their sheriff, and later their Alpha, is murdered.  Suzanne also goes to help the sheriff’s office as a deputy.  Once there, the two are attracted to Tom, another deputy.

Pack’s Broken Heart is the second book in the Western Wolves series and picks up a few months after Pack Rescue ends.  Pack’s Broken Heart also gives an in-depth look at how a pack operates, what some of the responsibilities are for an alpha and what can happen when a pack’s leadership is depleted.  I liked this book as it also shows Owen in a different light and how he evolves into a leader, even as he wants nothing to do with a leadership role.

Suzanne and Owen butt heads a lot even though they are attracted to each other.  They get together during a pack run along with Tom. The three have a lot of chemistry together and I liked the way the relationship evolves between the three and how the men come to accept their relationship even though they have never been attracted to men in the past.  The author did a good job in dealing with some of issues. 

The various secondary characters are interesting and I was surprised by who the culprits were.  The author did a good job building the suspense as there were some twists.  The handling of one problem was an interesting resolution and I can see more stories coming from that particular thread.

I am looking forward to more in this series.  While readers can read Pack’s Broken Heart by itself, I recommend the series be read in order.

Publisher’s Note: Previously published elsewhere under the title Breakdown of a Pack.
