I'll admit it up front, I came to Charlaine Harris' work through HBO's True Blood series - then I listened to all the Sookie Stories available on Audible... I really like the series, I had a lot of fun with the stories... it didn't matter to me about the different twists on the same ideas... so I thought, "why not?".
It was obvious to me this is a series of short stories EDITED by Ms. Harris and Toni Kelner. These are centered around the general topic of "Vacation", and that works well for a summer's read or listen.
Yes, Sookie and Pam have an adventure - but there are some other interesting tropes played with. What's a gargoyle to do for a vacation? Or what if there's an issue with the house you inherit and want to make into a BnB? What's a super-hero to do when life gets a little jaded? Then, again, I always thought there were benefits to being a were(wolf)... like being able to enjoy cotton candy, pop corn, and soda and then using up those calories during an evening's events ;-)
This is a fun set of stories! Nothing too engrossing, but a great listen while going to, coming back, or just lounging around at the shore! It's just a fun romp with some super-naturals!
