River Road by Suzanne Johnson
Apparantly this is the second book in a series. I have not read the first one - I think I may have to do so. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, where the storm has destroyed the border separating the Beyond, thus allowing preternatural creatures to cross easily into New Orleans and surrounding areas. DJ, a wizard with elven heritage, is tasked with stopping a war between two tribes of mer-people in the Mississippi river. Along with the historically undead pirate Jean Lafitte, her handsome shape shifting partner Alex, and his werewolf cousin Jake, DJ has a difficult job ahead of her.
Supernatural sleuthing, magical creatures warring, and a bit of romance make this a fun read!
