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".

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)

    "Engrossing story. Great listen!"

    Definitely page turner as all listeners and readers have remarked. Love the development of the storyline and characters. I find the narrator's performance perfectly fit for the protagonist, Harper Connolly. The narrator has different voices and tones for various characters; well done and easy to follow. Great listen! Looking forward to next book.

    Story
    "Held my attention, interesting characters"
    Any additional comments?

    The main characters are a pair of step siblings. The girl, Harper, is the one who having been hit by lighting can now find nearby dead bodies and pinpoint the manner of death. Her stepbrother Tolliver acts as her manager/bodyguard. One critic says, "and with whom she shares a thinly disguised physical attraction that they manage to keep at bay by engaging in casual sex with various partners". That sounds like a reasonable way to describe it. Something is a little off with the pair of them. I found them interesting despite this more from their background. Her mom married his dad, but the parents were lawyers who descended into poverty, crime and child neglect due to drug addiction, and her sister was abducted and assumed killed as a teen. I guess they are sort of interesting like a car accident is interesting so I felt compelled to keep listening. I figured out who did it and the motive in this one close to the end but it was close enough to the end that I didn't feel gypped.

    "Good mystery, Give reader a change!"

    At first I had a hard time getting started with this book. I found myself starting then changing to another audio. Once I gave it some time I enjoyed trying to figure out what type of book it was going to be. Mystery..? Supernatural? both? I think the problem was the reader, she seemed so dry in the beginning, but I think that is part of the story. By mid book I was very interested and trying to predict the end.
    It turns out to be a Mystery that is started by Harper do to the fact that she can find bodies.

    There are 4 books in the series so far. I will defiantly move to book 2.

    "Enjoyable"

    I am really enjoying these characters. I have to say though, that Harper is a VERY similar character to Sookie... kind of a variation on a theme. That said, I like Harper as a character better than Sookie. Just personal preference. This mystery was fun and different and I have started to buy all the books.

    Story
    "A suspenseful smalltown drama"

    I picked this book because I love Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. Admittedly, I haven't read a mystery in a while. I liked the story, definitely got caught up in the drama and was intrigued by the relationship between the main character, Harber Connelly and her brother.
    But I found the story dark and weirdly depressing, not sure why.
    I definitely wanted to finish the book, got a little confused by the conclusion- I had to rewind a few times but I rationalize it was because I was cleaning and multitasking during the read.
    Is it worth the credit? yes. Have a bought another book in the series? No so far.
    A bit surprised because I'm such a huge fan of Harris' other series, as I mentioned before.

    "Was hoping for more - just OK"

    I liked the characters and premise so will listen to more in this series if I get a chance. This wasn't a waste of time - just not great. Hopefully the series will "grow on me" which is sometimes the case.

    "Main character has very interesting abilities"

    Captivating main character, good mystery storyline, readers voice for the main character sounds too old for the age of the character, but I got adjusted to it. First of a series, I will be listening to the next ones also.

    "Somewhat Disappointing"

    What a wonderful idea for a book. A young woman, Harper, is struck by lightening and finds that she is able to hear the dead tell her how they died. She and her brother travel together around the country to help grieving families find their dead loved ones, and in some cases identify how they died, by natural causes or murder.

    The author tries valiantly to guide the reader into Harper's world. She and her brother grew up in a home with parents who were drug addicts. They had only themselves to lean on and trust. Their bond is very tight. I found a couple of times it felt a little too tight, almost bordering on incest. But this doesn't detract from the book. It just makes the point that Harper has a damaged psyche from the childhood trauma of negligent parents; then being struck by lightening and awakening to the new scary "gift" she now possess. She feels she should try to help others with this gift she has of communicating with dead people, but people don't always appreciate the answers she gives them about their deceased loved one.

    So I would say that listening to this book was a bit interesting. But it would have made such a difference if it had been read by a narrator who had more expression in her voice. This book was read in a dry, emotionless way that totally detracted from any expression of feelings the main character was experiencing. When the narrator changed voices to represent another women or as a man it was difficult to know who was talking. All of the voices seemed to be a slight variation of the same. She attempted a southern accent at times, which didn't sound realistic. I do know something about southern accents, my parents were from Georgia and their drawls were genuinely from "down yonder" in the southern state of Georgia.

    I would recommend this book if you can deal with the readers monotone voice and if you aren't bothered by a woman who leans a bit too heavily on her brother. Is it a normal brother/sister relationship? Its not a poorly written book, but certainly not one of the best I've ever enjoyed. It has promise but if I read a sequence to this book I hope that Harper begins to trust her own abilities to deal with difficult situations and will wean herself off the childlike need to cling to her brother.
