Publisher's Summary

With a rabid fan base that grows larger each day, the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mysteries by acclaimed author Charlaine Harris are not to be missed. Along with their phenomenal popularity, the books have also captivated critics and earned such prestigious honors as an Anthony Award.

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.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    "Loved it."

    As usual, Johanna Parker gives a wonderful and riveting performance that makes you wanna stop what you're doing and listen to the book in one sitting. I read these books when they were first coming out many years ago, and getting to listen to them brings the story to life in a new and exciting way. Her voice acting is some of the best I've ever heard, and I've listened to quite a few audiobooks. It felt like I was right there with Sookie the entire time. I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series! The HBO show pales in comparison to the depth and fun of Charlaine's novels.

    "Im completely obsessed with Charlaine Harris!"

    I think i finished this one faster than I did any of the other Sookie Stackhouse novels. The stories continue to get more in depth and you truly get to know most of the characters more than any books ive ever read. And I really enjoy that all of this is read by the same actor. It really helps enhance Sookies personality.

    "Missing a huge chunk of the story..."

    As I am sure other people have written, the story was good and Johanna Parker was her usual awesome, but Charlaine left out a huge part of the story. It is covered in one of her Novellas and Sookie retraces most of the main parts of what happened with her cousin in Definitely Dead, but I dont understand why she didnt put it in this book. I was a little bit disappointed, but overall the story was good.

    Story
    "Pretty good addition to the series :)"

    FYI - There is a #5.1 in the series, One Word Answer, that tells how Sookie found out about her cousin's death. I found it for free online and would recommend reading it before moving on to this book.

    3.5-4 stars

    This was a pretty good addition to the series. Things are going alright for Sookie as the story begins and Quinn (a were-Tiger she met in book #5) asks her out on a date. Unfortunately, their first date does get interrupted by an unfortunate event that heralds the beginning of more issues. Sookie's cousin (who was a Vampire and involved with the Vampire Queen) experienced her "final death" recently and Sookie gets called to New Orleans to sort out the estate. When she gets there, Sookie finds herself drawn into some pretty serious Vampire politics as well as having to deal with some shifter issues left over from a past issue/encounter. She also finds out some things about Bill that makes sure that she'll never be getting back together with him (IMO this was a good thing even if Sookie was hurt by her discovery). Fortunately, Sookie gets through things well and in relatively good health and still dating Quinn as the story ends.

    This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked Sookie in this story and like the fact that she's dating Quinn. TBH, I would like to see her get together with Eric (and there still seems to be a possibility hanging between them) but Quinn seems like a good guy so I'm open to their relationship. The story itself was quick paced and kept me engaged so I'd recommend it. :)
