This one is my least favorite Charlaine Harris book. Don't get me wrong, she's still an excellent author. The Sookie Stackhouse series comes highly recommended! My lackluster feelings toward this book should come as no surprise, since I much prefer her supernaturally-themed series (Sookie, Harper Connelly) moreso than her mystery ones (Aurora Teagarden, Lily Bard).

This being her first published work, is decent. Set in a small town where the mystery needs to be solved by the local sheriff and daughter of 2 murder victims, the level of intrigue and suspense is rather low. This felt more like reading a case Angela Lansbury would've solved in Murder She Wrote, instead of a novel by the woman who brought us HBO's True Blood.
