AuthorCharlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside. ReviewA lot is happening in this book but it seems Sookie is just watching most from the sideline. This book is clearly a preperation for some new storylines. Closing up loose ends and bits, introducing some new situations so we can prepare for a whole bunch of new books. I liked that Sookie was not busy with all the guys in this book. She was again choosing herself as the most important person in the world. I miss that often in this book which is weird cause she is a very strong personality. I like her better when she is not so depending. Again an entertaining quick read.
