Book Description from Goodreads
"Accompanied by her stepbrother, Tolliver (who works as her manager), Harper heads to small-town Arkansas for their next job. Her client is a socialite named Sybil Teague, who wants Harper to find a teenage girl who disappeared on the day her son was found shot dead in the woods. The girl, Monteen "Teenie" Hopkins, has a reputation for being "wild as a razorback," and scandalous rumors abound about the two. But once Harper locates Teenie's corpse a short distance from the spot where Sybil's son died and reveals that she was shot in the back while trying to escape, the real trouble starts. As more town residents begin to turn up dead -- and with her brother in jail on bogus charges -- Harper must find the real killer before she becomes his next victim.

Grave Sight, is a terrific read filled with paranormal intrigue, hot romance, and some really clever mysteries."



In this first novel of Charlaine Harris’s Harper Connelly series we meet Harper and her stepbrother and manager Tolliver; Harper has a talent for finding dead people after being struck by lightening and now helps people out to find their loved ones and sometimes just tells them the cause of death.

Right now they are in Sarne, looking for the body of Monteen "Teenie" Hopkins, who disappeared after her client Sybil Teague son’s Dell death. The only problem is that nobody really wants Harper there, especially after the body is found, two other body are confirmed as ‘murdered’ and another death strikes Sarne again.

I admit that I think I may have liked this book a whole lot more the first time I read it. Not to say I did not like it, it is a good novel, unique plot, the mystery kept me guess, even this time around truthfully I had for got who the bad guy was, so it held my attention. 

I found Harper to be a intriguing character her talents is still nothing I have read in any other book, that I can remember, but I think I found Tolliver even more interesting. Probably because he wasn’t the main character so though we ‘know’ him and about him, we never really got in his read like we did Harper’s.

The ‘hot romance’ in this book just didn’t, well; to me it wasn’t very ‘hot’. I read a lot of erotica so that could be the reason for my thinking it was kind of lacking; I do suppose for a mystery novel the elements of the romance was quit interesting but I still found it kind of lacking.

Altogether, I liked this book, for the first book in the series it gives you all the details of the characters, uncovers their mysteries so to speak as well it gives us the next book setting, too.

I would recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in a good paranormal read.

  1. I have to say I loved this series and as it progressed I loved it more. I am very sad that it is now over. I did have difficulty reading it at the beginning simply because I could not get Sookie out of my head, even though I have read other of Charlain Harris' series and enjoyed them as well. I guess I just love the writing style, for me it is easy to read and generally enjoyable.
