Lists with This Book. Ok, I’m going to be nice and round this up to 4 stars. I used grabe be Tru Blood obsessed the television series and the book series was a huge let down.
When Harper Connelly was a teenager she was hit by lightning in a freak accident that should have left her dead. Instead, she is left with the ability to locate dead bodies and can see what happened to them when they die. Harper along with her stepbrother Tolliver, travel the country making a living locating bodies and determining how they died. Most people think she’s a quack or spawn of the devil but they keep coming to her for answers.
In a small town in Arkansas, Harper is asked to find the body of a teen girl suspected to have been abducted or killed after her boyfriend supposedly committed suicide. Through a series of events Harper and Tolliver become entwined in the investigation of the two deaths despite desperately wanting to leave town. As time goes by and things become more twisted Harper cannot help but become curious, and soon she is working on the case herself.
I really enjoyed reading this. It surprised me because I hadn’t liked this author’s previous work, but this series is strong on its own and honestly much better than the Sookie Stackhouse series.
I would love to see this book made into a series or film. So for those of you who like murder mysteries with a little bit of a paranormal aspect, this book is for you. Just ignore that godawful cover. View all 44 comments. Apr 19, Jilly rated it liked it Shelves: Harper, the ghost whisperer, and her brother, Tolliver, are close. Co-dependent, strange sexual tension, WTF close. Some things just shouldn’t be Thankfully, we find out that they are not actually siblings, but that their parents married each other when they were teens.
In that case, I say, “Just go ahead and do it already. Then, instead of being the creepy siblings you can be the creepy couple that call each other “brother” and “sister”. Yeah, tha Harper, the ghost whisperer, and her brother, Tolliver, are close.
On the other hand, these two may not actually understand that they aren’t siblings. Neither of them are the sharpest tools in the shed. I was practically yelling at them half the book when they couldn’t figure out obvious clues or when they went running into obvious traps.
The fact that these two morons are still alive is some sort of Darwinian Slip.
They should have been weeded out of the gene pool as children in some sort of fork-in-an-outlet accident. This would have done the job I can’t grsve that there were any big surprises in this book, and the characters were pretty flat and predictable. But, I have a strange compulsion to see where the Creepy Twins go from here.
This series is setting up for one big giant dysfunctional family reunion ho-down. I kinda want to see it. I’m thinking this guy will be there. View all 10 comments. Jul 28, Kati rated it liked it Shelves: At first, I thought that this books was great.
If I’ve actually ever liked them that is. In this book, everything feels a bit off. You don’t feel with grwve for the characters.
Their past, their troubles, everything is just “described”. They are really two-dimensional and you just Even though this whole book was written from her POV, I didn’t feel like knowing her at all. I co At first, I thought that this books was great. I couldn’t step into her shoes. She described her painful past but I still felt as if she was talking about someone else. I thought that she had only two emotional states – panic and coldness. Either she was panicking or she was so emotionally distant and cold that there is no other word to desribe it but frigid.
Not in the sexual sense, no. But to me, she felt too distant to care about. The case started in a quite interesting way but as it continued, it was rather easy to figure out what was going on. I will probably buy the next book in this series but definitely in a paperback form only. The series is not good enough to pay for in hardcover.

She’s a lot more vulnerable, but shows the same stubborn streak along with a moral sense that demands she ‘makes things right’.
She has a tougher time of it, too. The writing is the same as the Sookie series.
View all 6 comments. I am beginning to think that the more I read of Charlaine Harris, haris less I like her. Poorly written, weak plot, cardboard cut-out characters, creepy grafe and creepy romance, and trademark Charlaine Harris character name and detail errors all in one book.
I don’t even know vrave to begin I guess I could just write a list, like our heroine, who Charlaine describes as a list-maker with little opportunity, first does 26 pages from the Ugh.
I guess I could just write a list, like our heroine, who Charlaine describes as a list-maker with little opportunity, first does 26 pages from the end of the book. You’d think, in a mystery, that a list writer would probably, maybe, keep a list while she’s running around tracking down all those clues. More likely, Charlaine hereafter known as “CH” just wanted to rehash everything and wrote in a “personality trait” to do so.
Speaking of personality, oh lordy me. Were there any personalities in this book? Harper was hxrris about as boring and cold and unlikeable a character as I’ve ever read. Why anyone would want to read an entire series about her is beyond me. There is nobody, at all, in this book that was even remotely interesting or unique. Harper’s relationship with her ‘brother’ is super creepy. Even if Harper and Tolliver aren’t blood related, their relationship is just Harper is almost totally charlainne completely dependent on Tolliver.
She’s jealous of his conquests, and he haris hers, although neither come right out and say so, but their ONLY disagreements with each other were over the other half making the beast with two backs grace some “outsider”. They talk about buying a house together, and Harper talks about the possibility of Tolliver marrying, and fleetingly thinks of that for herself, but she seems very reluctant to think about that, and the thought of Tolliver committing himself to someone besides her seems to give her anxiety.
Harper’s parents were well-to-do who didn’t do too well, and became alcohol and drug dependent and neglected the kids, but that’s OK because the kids had each other Apparently, this, along with Harper’s injury, the one which caused her ability to sense the dead, are where her co-dependence on her brother chralaine from, but I don’t get it.
OK, right, you’re struck by lightning.
