DEFINITELY DEAD (Supernatural Mystery-Louisiana) – G+
Harris, Charlaine – 5th in series
Ace, 2006- Hardcover
Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress and telepath. Her love life is a mess, people are being murdered in her yard and Sookie has to go to New Orleans as she has inherited her Cousin Hadley’s estate. This isn’t easy as Hadley was consort to the vampire Queen of New Orleans and not everyone wants her there.
I love this series. DEFINITELY DEAD, to me, was a really good story, and one that let Sookie grow and mature. The humor was there, as was the tension and suspense. But in this book, Sookie experienced emotional hurt and passion, both of I believed and felt. I did feel I was missing some information and learned some of the characters had been introduced in a short story. Even so, it didn't take away from the books strengths. The bigger problem for me is that I have to wait another year for the next book. For those who are fans of this genre, I highly recommend it, but start with the first book and read them in order.
