All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris

Sookie travels to a vampire summit with the Queen of Louisiana, Eric, Pam, He Who Does Not Exist, aka Bill, and a few others. Bonus is that Quinn, he new man, is also there working.  Her talents as a telepath are needed to help Sophie Anne shore up her crumbling position after Hurricane Katrina.

Of course nothing is ever simple but Sookie has grown quite a backbone and is doing much better at protecting herself as much as possible.

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon

The early 1770s in the Colonies was a time to depend on yourself and not on any powers that be.  Friends, family and neighbors were your support, and sometimes your downfall depending on how they approached a certain situation.  For the families of Fraser's Ridge life is always an adventure, asked for or not.

With political winds beginning to stir Claire and Jamie must walk a fine line. Roger and Brianna also know what is to come and at times it is difficult to realize how real things are.

Fast paced with many trials and tribulations, often laced with humor.  The only fault is to many lose ends seem to be tied up in the last few pages but that does not really affect the quality of the overall story.
