My first mystery of the month...
- Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris. (4 stars)
I'll admit that these books are like candy for me...want to stay away from them but just can't. I found this one to be a tad better than the last one, but a far cry from the first books in the series. Oh, and there was not nearly enough Eric in this book for my taste.
(from book jacket)
"Growing up with telepathic ablilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on that there are things she'd rather no know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about, she'd rather not see--like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.
There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet---Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard — especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down."
