When radio personality Kitty Norville was outed on television as a werewolf for the world to see she found it necessary to follow in Thoreau’s footsteps and take a break from society. But after settling in a small town where she has an uneasy truce with the town's people Kitty begins to find animal carcasses on her doorstep along with other malicious gifts. While Kitty is in her self-imposed exile an upstart radio personality has come on scene with a show similar to Kitty’s, a fact that angers Kitty but that she can’t seem to stop herself from listening in on her rival.

It is while Kitty is hiding out that Cormac, a werewolf hunter once sent to hunt her and a romantic interest, shows up unexpectedly with his injured cousin and Kitty’s lawyer at her door. Unable to fulfill a childhood promise Cormac brings Ben to the only person he trusts to help his cousin to cope with his new life, but no one expects the attraction that springs up and threatens the relationships between the three.

Kitty Takes a Holiday is another superb novel in this wonderful series that will have readers enraptured. I love that we get to follow Kitty along as she is trying to make the transition into taking charge of her life, and that we get to watch her grow stronger and more assertive, which I find an amazing and wonderful aspect of this witty character that I immensely enjoy. Kitty’s relationship with Cormac and Ben is one that I am finding fascinating and difficult for me to decide who to cheer on but also one that I am going to greatly enjoy finding more about. Carrie Vaughn’s Kitty Norville series is to me a must read and is fast becoming an author that I just can’t live without. I am really looking forward to the next installment of this great series and to any other work by this great author who creates such a fascinating world and interesting characters that readers are sure to treasure.
