Kitty and the Midnight Hour follows the life of Kitty Norville, a late night DJ at a Denver radio station. Kitty is also a werewolf. Yup….a werewolf. One night, tired of the lame requests for songs she can’t stand to hear again, Kitty inadvertently starts a feature on her program she calls, The Midnight Hour, sort of a late night “Dr. Laura” for the supernaturally challenged. Before you can say “well stake me in the chest and rub me with garlic”, vampires, werewolves and witches are calling in from all over the country. Suddenly, Kitty has a hit on her hands, a killer handsome werewolf hunter on her “tail” and a whole passel of pissed off homicidal undead crazies looking for her.
I must have really been in the mood for fun, light, fluffy fare because I had a blast reading this book. The author is very clever, she alludes to past events and then later in the book manages to work them into the plot. Before the book is over, you know all about the protagonists past, without having been smacked over the head with it. The book is great fun, and I’m looking forward to number two in the series.
