Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris
Sookie Stackhouse, small town bar waitress is a friend of the supernaturals. Her brother, Jason in the last book was bitten so many times that he will change at the new moon into a were-panther.
In the parking lot of Merlottes, the bar Sookie works at, Sam her shape-shifting boss is shot. The were-panthers think Jason might be involved as revenge for turning him. So Sookie must find out who is sniping at the shifters before the next new moon.
In the meantime, Sookie also gets to watch the Shreveport Werewolf leadership competition. She is there as a telepath to prevent any cheating.
Sookie must surely have some attraction pheromone thing going on as all her admirers keep sniffing around: Bill, Eric, Alcide, Sam and now Quinn. A girl can't have too many beaus, can she? Somehow this book just didn't wow me as much as the others.
First Line: "I knew my brother would turn into a panther before he did"
