This is a cute story about a snake shifter finding some lost shifter wolf puppies on his territory. He calls the only wolf he knows to help him get to the bottom of the mystery. I love the puppies bonding with Skylar, the snake, and how unique Skylar is as a shifter. Brady, the wolf, had some history with Skylar so it was nice to see that resolved. I found the storyline a bit convoluted especially for such a short piece and while things worked out in the end the build up didn't work for me as much as I would have liked. Also, there was one typo that threw me out near the beginning:Tugging a toboggan down over his head, smooshing his poor curls and guaranteeing they'd look stupid later, he sat down to lace on heavy, fur-lined boots.Tuque is the word that should be used here, not toboggan. Still this was cute and the puppies very sweet. I liked the MC's and if the story didn't have the shifter politics my rating would have been higher.
