Frostbitten by Heather Beck

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great beauty hides dark secrets...

Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she’s sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.

Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?

My Review
 What I Liked
Frost: Great book boyfriend!  He was such a sweet and thoughtful guy and one that I could empathize with.  The people in his town are so mean to him and never have anything nice to say.  From the moment Anastasia moves to town people are telling her that Frost is a freak and that if she hangs out with him it would be social suicide.  Coming from a small town myself I understand what it is like to be judged and disliked for things beyond your control.  Despite it all Frost doesn't allow the hatred to make him bitter.
The Paranoia:  One would think that most people would ignore crazy rumors about werewolves, especially when there were reported sightings of a cougar.  That isn't how things work in real life.  Once paranoia sets in it becomes mob mentality and everyone panics.  This book illustrates exactly what happens when people become irrational.
