I've read a lot of Tanya Huff's books: the Valor series,(military sf) all of the four Quaters books, (high fantasy) all of the Blood books, all of the Smoke books (so far, I hope,)(both of these series are contemporary fantasy with vampire as a central character) and I recently read and loved The Enchantment Emporium, of which this is in the same universe.

Claire is a Keeper who is summoned to a Kingston, ON ramshackle rooming house that is staffed by the handsome, capable, Newfie, young, and virginal Dean. In Room 6 there’s an Evil Keeper who has been in a sleeping spell for sixty years, and there’s a gateway to hell in the basement. Claire travels with her talking cat companion, Austin. As guests, they host a folk musician/ vampire, identical triplet werewolves (of which only two show up) in town for a competition, retired Olympians who are not sports people, a Quebecois, ghost Jacques who “lives” there, and all sorts of beasties, not all of them children, on Halloween. A fun, but not world changing novel, but these rarely are. Fun is good.

I'm looking forward to the other two books in the series, well, anything by Tanya Huff.
