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!

"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)
I love paranormal mysteries and this was no exception. A unique talent and relationships kept me guessing the whole time. I was entertained.
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.
I liked this book and the new characters. But not so crazy about the narrator. Johanna Parker who narrated the Sookie Stackhouse books was terrific. I missed her.
Only if they don't mind the same plots
It was a good book for running to because I didn't have to use too much brain power to listen to.
When it seem like the deputy may have been the criminal
For someone who likes a light hearted
If a friend had already had the interest in the occults and extra sensory gendre, this book is an easy listening one.
The idea of being hit by lightening and then having extra senses is an interesting concept
I love books!
I bought "Grave Sight because it was on sale and I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries. I found Grave Sight to be rather ordinary and predictable. Grave Sight is like an old fashioned detective story with the twist being that the main character can find dead people and she can see how they died. I will not go as far as saying it is bad but it is kind of hard to believe the same person wrote the Sookie Stackhouse books. The number one reason I buy books from Audible is to be entertained.I do not think I will buy any more of the Harper Connelly Mysteries.
I love this author and thought this was an interesting story. However, I did not care for the flat monotone that this narrator used. Much worse, I can NOT STAND the "mouth noises" heard throughout. I have listened to plenty of books on which I could not hear swallowing, burping, and lip smacking. Therefore, I have to conclude that any audible noises are due to a lack of good editing. It is enough to ruin what could have been an enjoyable listen. Glad I only paid $4.95 for this....
I am virtually a new audiobook listener, but I don't have the time to pick up a book and read it. I really enjoyed this book, it had intrigue, suspense and all around good to listen to and still be on the edge of your seat. I love the stories Charlene Harris puts out and hope she never stops. I enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series and wish there were more to come. Can't get enough.
One of the most enjoyable books I have ever listened to, a fun storyline and the performer was great with distinguishing voices and emotions.
