I've read Charlaine Harris before in the form of the Sooke Stackhouse (true blood) series. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The Harper Connelly series comprises of 4 books which follow Harpe and her "brother" Tolliver as they find the missing dead with Harpers special gift. There are several colourful characters along they way. I really enjoyed reading this set of books, it's different from the vampires in Sookie books but really enjoyable.

This is my favourite of Charlaine Harris’s series, after ‘Southern Vampire: Sookie Stackhouse’.

Fans of the Sookie books can appreciate that ‘Harper Connelly’ does have a supernatural bent. Harper’s world is our world, real life in which there are no vampires, werewolves or fey. The ‘Harper Connelly’ series looks at the supernatural from a realist perspective – and Harper is a protagonist dealing with other people’s pessimism and blatant distrust of her and her abilities. In this series Charlaine

Charlaine Harris has such an easy and engaging writing style, that it is so easy to become heavily invested in her books.

I like the crime aspect of these books interwoven with the psychic side. I also love the sub plot of her missing sister and how that quietly picks up pace throughout the whole four books.

While at certain times I found that the pieces of the mystery only tends to fall together in the last couple of chapters, I enjoyed the narrative style Harris employs.

If I had to rank Charlaine Harris' series I would rank them as followed:

1. The Aurora Teagarden series
2. The Sookie Stackhouse series
3. The Harper Connelly series

It wasn't love at first read with the HC series. I found the stories to be interesting but the main character's codependency on her stepbrother was a little weird. I like my heroine to be a little more independent than HC is. Not bad but not my favorite.

Check it out when you have the time.
I don't actually have this version. I just wanted to re-read the series and can't see how to mark that I've read these books this month without deleting them from 2009.

It's a good series. I may have to check out the graphic novel version one day.

I like anything that Charlaine Harris writes! There are tie-ins to other series that she writes, such as with characters that also appear in her Midnight, TX, books and in the Sookie Stackhouse and Lily Bard series. She sometimes kills off main characters, which takes me by surprise me when she does it, but it's always an important part of the story.

Read this.

I read this series several years ago and wanted to revisit the series. I am so glad I did. Love the plots, the characters and the writing.

I love a series! This is not the best of CH's but they kept my attention and I was able to blow right thru them.

I loved all of the books in this series. I have read each and every one multiple times and would do it all over again.

3.5, actually. Harper is quirky and real, and I would look forward to more from her POV. But I'm not expecting it.

Like her other books, Harris's series involving a woman who can locate the dead and her partner is interesting, well-constructed, and a pleasure to read.

These are quick reads....I like the relationship between Harper and her is good and complicated. I like how Harper accepts herself for who she is, which is a great trait to emulate, but she comes by it rather easily. I also liked how Harper tries to put her siblings ahead of herself when she makes decisions - - it shows what kind of person she is without beating you over the head with it :) I like how Ms. Harris narrates - - I can always see where we are in my mind!

Really enjoyed these well crafted mysteries. I likes how the clues were given in tiny drabs so that I figured out what was happening as the characters did. I hate it when so many clues are given that I have already solved the mystery several chapters before the characters have and these books didn't do that to me.

I liked these stories better than the sookie stackhouse series. It's about a woman who was struck by lightning as a child and now can find dead bodies, and does, as her career, traveling around with her stepbrother who is her agent. But with uncovering dead bodies comes the uncovering of what, or who, killed them.

Definitely recommend this series! It's an easy read. I have to be honest after reading the first book I was skeptical about reading the rest but the second book sucked me right in! I don't know why I was worried- Charlaine Harris never disappoints!

I like Ms. Harris's work, but the last book felt rushed. It had the feeling of being required work, not desired work.
