Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris

This is the latest in Ms Harris's Southern Vampire series. In case you have never read them the others are: Dead until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, Dead to the World, Bite (anthology with Laurell K. Hamilton and others, but a need to read in the series), Dead as a Doornail (there are two other short stories in anthologies, but they are not required for this storyline). The books need to be read in order otherwise you will be totally lost. The series is about a barmaid named Sookie Stackhouse who lives in Bon Temps, LA and is also a telepath. If you think that is weird, her boss is a collie, her ex boyfriends consist of a vampire and a werewolf, and her brother is a werepanther. Her life is not what you would call "normal". But it is her life and she makes the most of it. Vampires are now out in the open an part of society, weres have yet to come out of the closet.

In this installment Sookie has to go to New Orleans to dispose/take care of her cousin's possessions (she was a vamp that was killed). Now she is dating a weretiger named Quinn, that was introduced in a previous book. But things start happening to her that are not promising. First she and Quinn get attacked while out on a date, then she gets summoned by the Queen Vampire. It looks like someone does not want her to get her cousins possessions in order. Having to deal with this and watching her ex boyfriends with their new flames, Sookie has her work cut out for her.
