I have read other Shakespeare books and this one is good also.. would recommend... Thanks Ms. Harris for another good mystery
Likes: Cozy mysteries, esp w/cats, books on workings of the brain/autism, not-too-dark fantasy. Dislikes: Animal cruelty, torture scenes.
This book was somewhat of a departure for the series in that it actually was not set in Shakespeare but in Lily's home town where she has gone for her sister's wedding. In a coincidence to challenge the suspension of disbelief of most readers, Lily's PI boyfriend just happens to get involved in a missing person's case wherein the missing person (who was taken as an infant) is likely to be one of three girls in this small town, all of whom of course know Lily's sister. That's absurd, but I have to say I really enjoyed this plot. In this one, at least Lily is actually trying to solve the mystery, actively looking for clues amid the other goings on. The down side I guess to this one is that the sub-story of the stolen infant being recovered at the age of 8 was so interesting to me that it sort of overshadowed the rest of the book. However, I did enjoy the connection to Lily's life before her attack and her ongoing development and was very caught up in the mystery. Still loving the series.
If the plot made sense. The plot and ending just really don't make sense and there were many inconsistencies throughout the book.
Yes. Julia Gibson's inflection gets tiring. She sounds almost irritated and is sing songy.
A totally new story, writter is so clever
All of them are good, Julia is an excellent narrator
For sure and I did. I always want more
Love the series, Charlaine Harris is one of my favorites! The narrator is great!!!
If this is what you're looking for, don't bother. Lilly Bard is a a dark and troubled woman who suffers from PTSS. Brutally assaulted and held captive for possibly weeks, until she found a way to kill one of her captors. She was in the shed with his body for days until someone reported a smell, and went to look. Lilly had to leave her family because she couldn't take the pity and the publicity. Here in this book she has to go home to her sister's wedding. It is a trauma for her and her family. Not only that people start dieing all around this little town. Charlaine is brilliant, I hope she does continue this series past book five
"I love this series"
Lily was a cheerful, well educated women when she was abducted and brutally raped. She survived, and built a new life and a new personality, but her relationship to her family and the people of her home town was changed and strained.
Even though in this book she's recovered a lot and has a successful reltionship she's still super quick to pick up on people's hidden motives, and determined not to be a victim.
