Second in the Southern Vamps/Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris...
As is obvious from the dateline on the post, these are easy reading!
There are a number of plotlines going in this one. First off, the cook of the bar where Sookie works is murdered, and then she gets sent to Dallas to use her special talents to help the vampires there figure out why one of their own has disappeared.
The business in Dallas gets complicated by a group of anti-vampire fanatics. Which makes sense. In a world where vampires are a known thing, I would assume there would be people who would want to get rid of them. It really underlines the vulnerability of the vamps (at least this kind, where they're asleep during the day). If someone who wants to do you harm can figure out where you hide during the day, there's nothing you can do to protect yourself from them.
We also get to learn just a bit more about some of the other supernatural creatures, the shapeshifters mostly.
