Publisher's Summary

Grave Sight draws listeners into the intriguing world of Harper Connelly, a woman with a unique gift: she can "see" the deceased and how they died.

A teenage girl from a small Ozarks town is missing and feared dead. Hired by local police, Harper locates the girl's body in a nearby forest. But there's more than one corpse in those woods, and the second one raises questions no one wants to ask. Soon Harper and her stepbrother/assistant, Tolliver, are under suspicion. All they want is to get out of town, but they will have to clear their reputations first.

Charlaine Harris writes best-selling mysteries described by Booklist as "gripping and spicy", and praised by the Denver Post for their "goofy charm".

And hear more from the Harper Connelly series!

What the Critics Say

"A strong debut that will have readers dying for more." (Booklist)
"Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters. A nifty puzzle toward the end will challenge the most jaded mystery buffs." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Little bit of mystery, little bit of paranormal"
    Where does Grave Sight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a fun, light read. I've listened to quite a few books - while this doesn't crack my top favorites list, I still found it enjoyable, and occasionally found myself staying in the car longer than necessary to hear a bit more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Sight?

    Imaging Harper and Hollis at the gospel choir while Tolliver likely pouted at the motel was pretty funny.


    Have you listened to any of Alyssa Bresnahan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard her other books, but I can say I think she did well with a slow southern drawl.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud at a few points. I did get pretty annoyed by some of Harper's tics.


    Any additional comments?

    Charmaine Harris usually writes enjoyable books, and this one didn't disappoint. It was worth a credit to me.

    Story
    "MORE Harper Connelly, please...!"
    What made the experience of listening to Grave Sight the most enjoyable?

    I'd give just about ANYTHING from Charlaine Harris a try since I LOVED the complete Southern Vampire series. The story had enough believable twists & turns to keep me listening to the end


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the story used the main character's "gift" to best advantage to move the story along. After all, someone who can "know" ONLY how a deceased person died has a limited range of "special" information to offer, so a lot of the story moves along by her intuition, her chutzpah, her wit and happenstance.


    What about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance did you like?

    Good pacing, but the first thing I noticed was that the voice sounded "older" than 24 yrs old; maybe I'm just too accustomed to the perky, sassy voice of Johanna Parker who narrates Harris's Southern Vampire Mysteries (True Blood) series.


    Any additional comments?

    The premise & main character (Harper) are intriguing enough to draw me into more Harper Connelly stories!

    Story
    "Not as entertaining as Sookie"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    After reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels, I decided to continue with Charlaine Harris because I liked her style. A positive about this book is that it is very well written and is definitely more mature than the Sookie novels, but the negative couldn't overshadow the positive. This book started off very interesting but after an hour I began having a hard time listening because it became boring. Unfortunately, it continued to be a letdown. Never really drew me in like Gillian Flynn would. Overall, I would consider this book one of my least favorite.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    A poor climax that took forever to achieve.


    What didn’t you like about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance?

    She did not sound like a woman in her early 20s which made it hard for me to see the character as being her age.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The relationship between Harper Connolly and her brother bordered on incestuous which was very uncomfortable, to say the least. I found myself cringing everytime there was an instance of them touching.

    "Good story, not the best narration"

    I chose this book after finishing the Sookie Stackhouse series, which I loved. I knew from the description that this would be darker and more serious but I still had hopes. I did enjoy the story but had it figured out about an hour before the end of the book. The narrator's voice didn't match the character. She didn't sound in her early 20's, plus her voice has a nasal quality which was distracting and at times made me rethink wanting to finish the book. It's not that she's a bad narrator, but perhaps would be better for non-fiction. She sounds as if she has a head cold, plus her voice lacks animation if that makes any sense.

    "Fine"
    Any additional comments?

    It was okay... The Sookie Stackhouse series is by far better than this book and the first aurora Teagarden book. I was not very attached to the characters by the end and the predictability of the plot made it seem to drag out too long. However, I will give the second book a chance.

    I really like thrillers. My favorite type of movie or book is one that has a unique perspective instead of a different version of the same story repeated by many different writers throughout the years. Many books are fine for a one-time listen, but to find one that's good enough to listen to again and again is a rare find indeed!!

    "Unimpressed"

    The premise sounded like a good idea -- a girl who gets struck by lightning and is left, along with some physical problems, the ability to locate dead bodies. The reader was okay when reading the female characters, but she wasn't able to do a good job with the male characters. The plot line had too many twists and turns and involved so many people who lived and worked in the small town, with a built-in prejudice about these people in this particular state, that I got confused as to which character was which -- especially when so many of them sounded alike due to the reader's vocalizations. I will not be trying any more of the books in this series.

    I don't recommend this book, because I think there's many others out there that are much more enjoyable and that you'd want to keep in your library to listen to again and again.

    "It was great"
    What made the experience of listening to Grave Sight the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy listening to my audiobooks while driving. If the book is good, I always stay gone alittle while longer than I should. This book was one of those stay gone all day books.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It kept me intrested. Not on the edge of my seat. It was just a really good book.


    What about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance did you like?

    She played Harper the right way. She read it the way it was supposed to be interpreted. In my own personal opinion.


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

    Lighting , blackout, and then came the dead.


    Any additional comments?

    Its just a really good series.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Alyssa Bresnahan’s performances?

    I like this series but she has no change in tone in her voice as Harper. Sad, mad, happy, scared same monotone no emotion voice. Almost makes me miss that something exciting is happening.
