In bestseller Harris's perky sixth Southern Vampire novel to star Sookie Stackhouse (after 2005's Dead as a Doornail), the telepathic waitress of Bon Temps, La., is off to (pre-hurricane) New Orleans to close out her dead cousin Hadley's apartment. Hadley's death six weeks earlier had been unexpected, since, as a vampire, she was already dead. Still, she'd led a lively existence as the main squeeze of the Queen of Louisiana, an omnisexual vampire, whose political marriage to the King of Arkansas occurred the night before Hadley's demise. Sookie and Amelia Broadway, Hadley's landlady and a pretty cool witch, immediately discover a mess of trouble left behind in Hadley's closet, and Sookie's soon neck-deep in even more. Though most of the intrigue doesn't come till halfway through, Harris keeps the action going nonstop in this bubbly brew of supernatural spice and whimsical whodunit that's more fun than a barrel of beignets.

This is actually probably my least favorite in the series so far. I really didn't care about the Hadley back story, but I do love Eric and Quinn. The love triangle just keeps getting better and better as the series progresses. I just have to reread All Together Dead, and then the next books in the series will be new reads for me!

***Next read: I just started Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer and then onto All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris. (I'm going to refrain from reviewing Life as We Knew It on any community until after April 5, since we are reading it for a book club online, but I will go ahead and review it on my LJ, in case anyone wants to read my thoughts earlier haha!)
