    "Cant wait till november!"

    I know this might be bad to say but I think I might actually like Harper better than Sookie. I really hope that this series catches on as well as the Southern Vampires.

    Story
    "Harper Connelly 3rd book even better"
    Where does An Ice Cold Grave rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story is truly gut wrenching and there will be times that it is truly upsetting but when you are dealing with serial killers it is the case. Young boys are disappearing and a law enforcement individual called on Harper to see if maybe she could find these boys. Many people are skeptical but this officer got Harpers name from some one who believes that she can help. And she does, and finds out such horrible things it's almost destroying her to keep going there are so many dead boys.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harper and Tollover they make these stories strong.


    What does Alyssa Bresnahan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's great in the emotions and characters, especially the really evil ones, I was very surprised.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Serial killers at their worst.


    Any additional comments?

    Even thought this is a really tough story to get through, the bad guys are caught. But it was a very unnerving story from start to finish. Ms Harris knows how to keep you on edge to the end.

    "Great book!"

    I love Charlaine Harris' series, and loved listening to this thriller as an audio book. The reader kept me entranced, and I felt I was right in the midst of the book (a first for an audio book for me). I would definitely recommend this book to others.

    Story
    "Series now has grisly violence and explicit sex"
    What disappointed you about An Ice Cold Grave?

    An Ice Cold Grave is the 3rd of the 4 Harper Connolly mysteries. This one is a departure from the others because all of a sudden we have nasty gory details about some really awful murders and explicit sex, made extra icky by it (the sex not the murders) being between Harper and her step brother (now boyfriend) Tolliver. Plus, I don't think this author has a knack for sex scenes and cringe worthy scenes are even worse when listening to someone read them aloud. Still, I enjoyed the book I guess because I've followed the characters this long and the story held my attention, and I was disappointed when I discovered that the series would be all wrapped up in the 4th book. Seemed kind of a waste to create these characters for 4 measly books.

    Story
    "Same story again."

    for the third in the series I hoped that Harper would grow as a character. the mystery in this novel was at least compelling, but the series is more about Harper and her life and this is what drags the story down. I can't continue with a series where I find the main character so unbelievable stupid that the rest of the story becomes background, while I rant at the main character.
    I'm sad to say this will be the last Harper Connelly story I'll be reading.

    "Good Story"

    I like the story. I felt that it could have been solved sooner but overall it was good. Harper is no Lily Bard, but she is likeable even with the plot twist in her character.

    "Good Book - Good Reader - Can't wait"

    This was even better than the other Charlaine Harris series. Well read. Next book in the series is due in October, I am very ready. I buy almost nothing in hardcover, but this series is worth it. Just a super listen, too. The characters are believable even if you wonder about their special abilities. The voice is smooth and certain, Good read. Solid plot.
