Real Murders by Charlaine Harris, which is the first Roe Teagarden book.
Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George, which I have passed on to my 12yo. Also a YA anthology, Vacations from Hell, which was a bit too horror for me.
Also read The Secret History of The Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig, which I found amusing and annoying by turns. But I'm borrowing the sequel, so I guess I liked it overall.
I read a bunch of Black Dagger Brotherhood books by JR Ward, which I think probably turned my brain to mush, but are strangely addicting. In retrospect, I realize that Alyssa Day's Atlantis books are inspired by this series, but I think I prefer JR Ward's writing.
Also The Companion by Susan Squires, a regency vampire romance, which was better than I expected.
I am reading The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, which I am putting down for a bit to read Travelling with the Dead by Barbara Hambly.
Really good stuff:
Stargazer by Claudia Gray, sequel to Evernight. It's a YA series about a vampire academy. The first book has a very neat twist. The sequel manages to surprise and raise the stakes. I'm looking forward to the third book.
