A college class gets more than it bargained for when Harper gives a demonstration of her uncanny talent. Instead of just finding one body in an old grave, she finds two: the original occupant and a recently deceased girl whom Harper had tried, and failed, to find two years previously. To dispel suspicions about her innocence, Harper sets out to find the killer - only to find yet another body in the same grave.

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
"well worth a listen"
this book is well worth a listen, i enjoyed. But it is unclear in which order to read these books and its much better to read them in order. You should read Grave Surpise, follwed by An Ice Cold Gragve and then Grave Secret. reading them this way all falls into place. i first started reading the last one first, then realised! i can recommend all three of these books.
"Story Good - Reading Standard not so great"
I'm a great fan of Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books (have listened to all of them) so I wanted to try the "Grave"-series. I like the book a lot. It's not as funny and charming as the Stackhouse books, but it's good entertainment and takes such a different story line that it's not just a rehash of her most successful series. So, I can really recommend it. The only thing that marrs the experience a bit is the reading style. If I compare it to the brilliant performances of Johanna Parker in the Stackhouse audio books, Bresnahans performance is somewhat substandard. She keeps pausing in the wrong places (which is really annoying) and she doesn't have a great repertoire of voices or accents, so it's a kind of continuous drone. It doesn't spoil the experience entirely, but with a better reader I would have given the book 5 stars instead of only 4.
"very unusual story"
This is a very interesting story with engaging characters. The concept of being struck by lightening causing this unusual talent is thought provoking
"As good as true blood"
I have read all of the true blood novels and really enjoyed them and this book was not a disappointment , not as racy as true blood but i liked the plot and the characters . the only thing is this is not the first book out of the series and i cant seem to find it on audible or i tunes , is this just me? so annoying that i will have to read the first book in print before i listen to the rest :(
