"A Touch of Dead" by Charlaine Harris [4]

Sookie Stackhouse is everybody's favourite cocktail waitress:
a cute, bubbly blonde... who can read minds. But Sookie's far from being the only person
in Bon Temps, Louisiana with a handicap, what with the local vampire population demanding
their unhuman rights and weres fighting for territory...

In fact, Bon Temps is a pretty lively place these days!

A Touch of dead collects together all the Sookie Stackhouse short stories in one volume.

Absolutely love the Sookie series and thought this was the next in the series...
so I was a little disappointed to find out that it wasn't.

This novel ties up some loose ends if you like... it is a series of short stories that
interweave themselves between some of the original books.

Most of the characters are people you already know and I guess the author felt like that
some of the stories needed more detail to them. Clever idea!
In all there are five short stories.

Well written, and short enough that you could easily finish this novel in a sitting.

Really looking forward to the next book in the series.

For all the Sookie fans you'll enjoy this one...

I rate this book 4 stars.
