Kitty Takes a Holiday

Title: Kitty Takes a Holiday
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Series: Kitty Norville, book 3
Genre: Urban fantasy
Published: 2007

Recommendation: Any Kitty fans won't be disappointed in this one.
Rating: 7.5/10

Summary: Kitty rents a cabin far off from civilization to take some time off and write a memoir. All of a sudden Ben and Cormac show up at her door after Ben has been attacked by a werewolf. Now Kitty has to deal with the tension in the house and also find out why there are dead animals showing up around her house.

Reactions: Kitty Takes a Holiday is an enjoyable continuation of Kitty's saga. The setting is dramatically different from her last stint in Washington and Vaughn keeps the plotline different enough to make the series fun to read.

There's some sexual tension between Kitty, Cormac, and Ben going on in this book and the relationship dynamic is pretty explosive. There is also quite an interesting set of supporting characters. From Tony, the helpful curandero to small town sheriff Marks to skinwalkers and gun-pointing shop owners, there are plenty of personages to enjoy.

The plot keeps moving along pretty well throughout and the ending is somewhat unexpected. It's definitely a quick read and the ending makes me want to pick up the next book very very soon.
