Read full description of the books:
I'm giving this book 5 stars. The others in the series only got 4 stars, but this one has something extra.
Charlaine Harris writes the best final books for a series I've ever seen. Her characters grow and you can see them moving on from where they were in the first book. Whatever the threads were that moved from one book to the other, get tied up, while making it obvious that life did go one even if we didn't get to see it do that. As with the Harper Connelly series, there could easily be more books although it is unlikely that there will be.
Jack and Lily have gotten married, but they haven't told anyone about it. So many of Lily's cleaning customers have died that she is having problems finding homes to clean, so she has begun to help Jack in his PI business, doing the required apprenticeship under his license. And Lily has finally realized that she needs to get some therapy for her kidnapping and rape issues so she can move on.
Lily finds herself in a group of women, all of whom have been raped. The group includes the minister's wife, and both white women and women of color, and a therapist who has issues of her own. On the very first night of therapy, Lily hears the therapist getting a harassing phone call, and it all goes downhill from there.
The individual mystery was interesting. Seeing Lily doing stuff that has nothing to do with cleaning was interesting. Watching the group of rape survivors come together, even though most of them wouldn't normally have even known one another touched my heart. But most of all, seeing the end of Lily's old situation, and how much she has grown, made this book and the whole series a keeper.

Read information about the authorCharlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside.
Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden. Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.
Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series. The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences.
When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she’d always wanted to write. Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn more readers. The Southern Vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.
In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability. Harper Connelly, lightning-struck and strange, can find corpses… and that’s how she makes her living.
In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St. James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She spends her "spare" time reading, watching her daughter play sports, traveling, and going to the movies.
