The 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. The synopsisWhen cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn't just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn't a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It's Eric the vampire—but now he's a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life. The reviewAnother entertaining Sookie story. The author handles the fact that if one supernatural occurrence exists they can all be true to introduce us to more new characters. The nice thing is that some others remain and take an important role in the story. They do not need a lot of explanation and because of that the story can keep up a nice speed. Unfortunately the step Sookie made in the last book to get a hold of her own life was further away in this book. Still had fun with it and will not mind picking up the next one after a small break.
