Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn



Kitty is just plumb tuckered out. After her adventures in Washington D.C., Kitty does what Kitty needs to do. Kitty Takes a Holiday. Of course, Kitty makes it a “working holiday”. She finds a nice remote secluded cabin where she can write her memoirs, and do her wolf thing whenever she wants to. Faster than you can say, “Dip me in ground round and call me werewolf food”, she’s got herself fur deep in problems. Somebody is leaving really gross dead skinned animals on her doorstep. Then Cormac, (her hottie werewolf hunter buddy…yeah…I said werewolf hunter) shows up at her cabin with Ben (her hottie lawyer guy) injured and unconscious, looking for her help. Add to this, some creepy red eyed critter is watching from the woods. This is so not the holiday Kitty had planned.

Book three of the Kitty books was just as satisfying and fun as the first two. Vaughn’s characters are hip, funny and weird. But in a really good way.

I went to the desk and fired up the laptop. I started a new page and wrote a title at the top: “Ten Ways to Defeat Macho Dickheadism.” The I realized that most of the world’s problems stemmed from macho dickheadism, and if I could defeat that I could save the world…….”

Ain’t dat da truth…….

Kitty is truly a lot of fun, isn't she?

Glad you're enjoying them. I'll be interested in your reviews of the most recent two - Kitty Raises Hell and the one before it (I can't remember the name right now).

I wasn't crazy about this one. It was good and it was necessary to the story arc but it wasn't quite as good as the rest of the books in the series.

Thanks for stopping by Ladytink! I had fun reading it, it moves the storyline along, but I didn't spend too much time on it. Just whipped through it and then on to the next one!

As a series though, I think they're pretty good!
