Charlaine Harris writes best-selling mysteries described by Booklist as "gripping and spicy", and praised by the Denver Post for their "goofy charm".
"Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters. A nifty puzzle toward the end will challenge the most jaded mystery buffs." (Publishers Weekly)

Enjoyable. Interesting. Recommend!
This was the second in the Harper Connolly series I have "read". I messed up in the order, but it didn't make a ton of difference. Since I so loved the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries, I was excited about starting this series. It took be just a bit to get into the story, but the storyline was good,Harper's "gift" is so unusual, the characters well developed and I had a hard time stopping the listen. I basically listened to it non-stop. The narration was the only problem I had as I felt it was too unemotional and made the main character seem very bland. It also made the relationship between Harper and her brother seemed strained, although based on the book that is not the case. The humorous remarks in the story had little emotion due to the narration. All in all, I would recommend this book and the series. It was very enjoyable and I loved the premise!

Good Book, Bad Narrator
I like the story behind this series, the woman in the books is a serious young lady that can identify the cause of death for bodies she comes upon. However, I can't stand the narrator. It is a very stern, emotionless voice that is far too "old" sounding for the 20 something character.
