Kitty Goes to Washington was an action packed book. It seems like trouble finds Kitty no matter where she goes. She has been run out of Denver, and living on the road, and after the events that happened in book one where she is outed as a werewolf, Kitty is subpoenaed to go to Washington to testify in front of the senate about all things paranormal.  Along with the Senate hearings Kitty finds herself getting into trouble with  in a power hungry doctor who wants to study paranormal humans, a zealous Senator  a reporter that will stop at nothing to get what he wants, a weird cult like preacher who thinks he cure vampirism and werewolfism and a vampire mistress and you have one big enchilada filled with trouble and mystery for Kitty.

 Some parts of this book were really predictable, but it didn't stop me from enjoying this book. Kitty is a bit lost in this book without her pack, but I liked how once she stumbled onto the DC wolf pack she realized that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, and while not having a real alpha has it's perks, it also has its downside-mainly that when you are in trouble there is no one there to help you out when you need them to.

I really enjoyed how so many subplots were able to come together at the end. In so many books the different sub plots are sometimes forgotten about but in this one every thing was tied nicely together. I have a feeling that a lot of these plots are just the beginning of something larger. I can't wait to see where this series goes! The only thing missing from this book was that there still wasn't a romance for Kitty. She does have a fling, but since I cheated and read the reviews for the next book in the series, I know who she ends up and can't wait to see it develop!
