Wedding fever has come to Bon Temps, Louisiana! Unfortunately, buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie is not the bride-to-be, so she takes the opportunity to travel to New Orleans on family business. As heir to the estate of her newly dead cousin Hadley, Sookie unearths a big secret. Soon it becomes clear that more than a few people will do anything to stop Sookie from looking into Hadley's past. Fresh, fashionable, and a little bit frightening, Definitely Dead is the best entry yet in an endlessly entertaining series.

"Harris keeps the action going nonstop in this bubbly brew of supernatural spice and whimsical whodunit that's more fun than a barrel of beignets." (Publishers Weekly)
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
This is one of my favorites in the series. I love all the characters and the story line.
I'm sure this book would appeal to people who enjoy reading about fabulously beautiful rich and famous people with expensive clothes and sharp, witty, shallow dialogue. If you like realistic likeable people in realistic settings, you might not enjoy this. I didn't.
I love Charlaine Harris, and I love Sookie Stackhouse. Unfortunately, the narrator is very flat, so all of the humor that Harris has written into Sookie also falls flat: Sookie's sarcasm, spirit and charm drown in the narrator's monotone. The story is worth a listen, nonetheless, because the story is well written, if not well acted.
I tried 4 or 5 times to listen to this because the description sounded interesting and the naration was good, but I just could not get into this whole vampire/warewolf/ thing. It would have made a good mystery without it, and I really don't think it should go in mysteries & thrillers without acknowledging that it is about the supernatural in the brief description.
