Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn

Flap copy from book:
"Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver Radio Station- and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts 'The Midnight Hour', a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged.

After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it's Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew..."

I don't usually read vampire or werewolf books, but this series was recommended and so I gave it a shot- boy am I glad I did! This book is at heart a murder mystery with a protagonist who just happens to be a werewolf. The irony of it all is that Kitty is much more human than many of those around her, and it is her human side that makes her radio program so popular. Though there are a few spots where the werewolf humor is a bit forced, overall this is a wonderful introduction to a series that only gets better with each book. Highly recommended even for those who normally don't read this genre.
