Kitty's Big Trouble by Carrie Vaughn


I continue to enjoy this series about radio host/werewolf Kitty Norville, with its interesting long-term narrative arc that carries throughout the series, as well as each individual book's self-contained mystery. In this installment, Kitty is thinking about the use of werewolves in military situations, after having experienced such use firsthand in the previous book. She uncovers some interesting information about Wyatt Earp, and then is called to San Francisco to help out in an apparently unconnected situation involving some vampires.

This series is best read in order, as the characters and their situations change and develop from one book to the next.  There is humor, peril, solid world-building, memorable characters, mystery, and a little romance. I tend to save up these books as I do J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas books, for when I want a dependable, gripping read.
