I really liked the so-called Shatnerverse books. The first few at least, were really well done. It felt like what Star Trek: Generations should have been, and there's some great Mirror-Universe stuff that happens in The Spectre and Dark Victory in particular, and I don't think there's a Mirror Universe Star Trek thing out there that I haven't enjoyed.

Shatnerverse Books that I Read and Enjoyed:
-Star Trek: The Return
-Star Trek: The Avenger
-Star Trek: The Spectre
-Star Trek: Dark Victory
Ironically, I haven't read the first book in the series, "Ashes of Eden", yet. I originally bought "The Return", because I wanted to read a good Kirk & Picard team-up, and just got hooked and kept buying the next books in the series.
The Star Trek: Destiny Trilogy was also very good, and is the closest to cannon events you can find that that take place in the proper Star Trek universe after the endings of Star Trek TNG, DS9, & Voyager. This series involved characters from all 3 T.V. series, as well. It tells the origin of The Borg, as well as the end of The Borg. And it tells this story superbly amongst multiple ship crews and settings, and even across time.
Star Trek: Destiny Trilogy:
-Star Trek: Destiny, Book 1: Gods of Night
-Star Trek: Destiny, Book 2: Mere Mortals
-Star Trek: Destiny, Book 3: Lost Souls
I also really liked the Star Trek: Voyager: String Theory Trilogy. An all original story based in a very strange area of space where space and time are being effected. A very "sci-fi" story that just keeps you entranced as you read on to see what's gonna happen next.
Star Trek: Voyager: String Theory Trilogy:
-Star Trek: Voyager: String Theory, Book 1: Cohesion
-Star Trek: Voyager: String Theory, Book 2: Fusion
-Star Trek: Voyager: String Theory, Book 3: Evolution
