I have long been a fan of Charlaine Harris. She is probably tied with Jim Butcher as my favorite author ever. And the fact that she is a native Mississippian (like me) has NOTHING to do with it. But she has an absolute talent for developing characters, and none so much as Sookie Stackhouse. This book opens with a Sookie short story, and believe it or not, that's just the beginning of the ride. I got drawn into reading anthology short stories because of Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher's "The Dresden Files" novels) and Sookie and all their "out of novel adventures" and this one rates among my top anthology favorites. Plus, I love the fact that when Ms. Harris and Ms. Kelner do an anthology, it is usually themed around some holiday or situation we mere "mortals" would normally think mundane. Like Summer Vacation. So before you hit the beach for a weekend getaway, or take a full blown two weeks off in some vast foreign land, be sure to grab this audiobook first. After all, it's not just the vacation that's important - it's the getting there and then getting back again that counts more.
