Review: Dead In The Family

I have been a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse books from the very beginning.  I love Ms. Harris' light touch with the horror, the southern humor and Sookie herself.  I also very much enjoy HBO's True Blood which is based off of these novels. 

Now I normally give a quick recap of the first few chapters but in this case I will skip as that would be giving a lot of the story away.  I will say that DEAD IN THE FAMILY isn't my favorite of the Sookie books.  It felt as though it was just cleaning up loose ends from the last book.  In my mind a good many of those should have been cleaned up last time.  I don't regret reading it but I sure hope that with Ms. Harris' next novel she is back on her game.  I rate this book a 3.


  1. My friend Brandy has been telling me forever and a day now to read her books and watch the show. I finally gave in in Feb and watched the show. OMG I am so hooked. I bought the first 8 books and when things slow down here a little I plan on reading them.
