Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
Mercedes Thompson happens to be familiar with werewolves. She grew up with them, and there's one living next door. Now a new werewolf wants to work in her car repair shop (German cars only please). Trouble ensues because if there wasn't trouble, what would be the point?
There are some sexy werewolves in this book, and the appeal is definitely for urban fantasy fans although this first book doesn't actually delve much into the actual sex part. The hinting is definitely there, and I like that there's a but of setup for what may happen in the future.
The pacing of the book is slower than most urban fantasy novels, which I appreciate. Most of them, in my opinion don't take the time to tell a good story, set a proper background, or give time for breathers. This mood setting makes the story a cut above the usual urban drivel.
Granted, the ending is a little silly. The solving of the mystery is just not that mind-blowing or perhaps well-thought out, but that's not really the point of books like this so I'll let it slide.
