I'm reading a fairly light book right now. Misfortune Cookie, the 6th in the Esther Diamond series of fantasy novels by Laura Resnick about fighting Evil (yes, the capital letter is intentional) in New York City.
Esther is a struggling actress in New York who often works when she's between gigs at an Italian restaurant that allegedly launders mob money for the Gambello family. She's befriended a centuries-old bookseller named Max who is actually a member of an ancient organization dedicated to fighting Evil.
She's in an on-again/off-again interest (it's probably not at the "relationship" level yet) with a New York City Police detective named Lopez who doesn't believe any of this stuff and thinks Max is kooky and kind of dangerous, and that Esther too easily believes in all that magic stuff.
It's really a hilarious series and I love it. It's not deep at all, but I find myself laughing throughout most of the books, and I can often read them very quickly.
The other 5 books, in order, are:
