Kitty Goes to Washington by Carrie Vaughn

Kitty Goes to Washington (Kitty Norville, Book 2)
This is the second book in Vaughn's series. Kitty has been called to testify before Congress on the subject of werewolves and vampires, so she heads to Washington, DC. When she gets there, the head of the local vampire family, Alette, makes her an offer of hospitality she "can't refuse", and Kitty makes Alette's mansion her home away from home on the Potomac.

Kitty also makes contact with the local lycanthrope community, who operate without a traditional pack structure, and becomes romantically involved with a Brazilian were-panther, Luis. She manages to do the touristy thing while she's there, despite her time commitment to the hearings.

She also manages to collect a few more friends, and maybe some enemies, too. Her old friend, vampire hunter Cormac, puts in an appearance, not exactly a cameo. There's an old Nazi werewolf named Fritz whose story she tries to unearth, a reporter from the tabloid Uncharted World, Roger Stockton, and a psychic, Jeffrey Miles, who befriend her.

There's a lot going on behind the scenes in Washington, as one might expect, and Kitty has some interesting adventures there. This is another amusing story, but without a lot of depth. Should keep you entertained when the mundane doings on Capitol Hill can't.
