Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris (41/2)

Sookie Stackhouse has finally settled into a relationship with the Viking vampire Eric, and her errant brother Jason seems to have his life in order, too. But all the other people in Sookie’s life – Eric himself, her former lover Bill, her friend and boss Sam – are having family problems. Eric’s maker shows up with Eric’s ‘brother’ in tow, the ailing Bill can only be healed by a blood sibling, and Sam’s brother’s marriage is about to take place... or will it? The furor raised by the coming out of the two-natured has yet to settle; some people are just not ready to sit down to dinner with a man who turns into a dog. And Sookie herself is still recovering from her last ordeal. She’s definitely improving, physically and mentally, but she’s always going to have some dark moments now. The werewolves tell her that there have been strange and ominous passers-by in the Stackhouse woods; now Sookie is about to come face-to-face with one of her more distant relatives...

I purchased this book because: I love the Sookie Stackhouse series so of course I would get the latest one :)

Opening lines: 'I feel bad that I'm leaving you like this,' Amelia said. Her eyes were puffy and red. They'd been that way, off and on, ever since Tray Dawson's funeral.

It is only when you start to read a book that you realize that you really love this series ... I have to admit I miss my adventures with Sookie and the rest of the supernatural beings ....

Things got abit hairy in the last book with the Fay War and so many of the most loved characters either being killed or wounded really badly ...

So it is with a happy heart that I am reading about a few of my favourite characters again ... Eric the hunky vampire, Sam the shapeshaper, Alcide the gorgeous werewolve, Bill the brooding vampire, Pam the fashion kick ass vampire, Claude the devilish handsome Faerie, Jason the brother who you love even though he is misguided ... and of course Sookie who always seems to be in the thick of it ....

Sookie is trying to get back to normal but what is normal in Sookie's world ... lol .... Eric's world is turned upside down when an unexpected visitor makes an appearance ... And to top that off the FBI are now sniffing around ... With more dead bodies turning up .....

You gotta love this series ... Abit sad that now that I have to wait for the next installment .... If your a fan of the series True Blood ... Then this series is a must ......

Favourite quotes: 'There' said Sam. I had to strain to hear him. Someone had put Jace Everett's 'Bad Things' on, and just about everyone in the bar was singing along. Pg 25 Gotta love the plug for the song in the book ... :) And love the song :)

"Thanks for the warning. I'll go to the house now. You're my favourite Breather." Pg 193 Just love Pam .... She has a wicked sense of humor ...

I love, love, love this series ....

I rate this book 41/2 ****
