2008: #45 – Grave Surprise (Charlaine Harris)

24663684 Book #45 was Grave Surprise, the second book in Charlaine Harris’ Harper Connelly series.  The back of the book reads:

While in Memphis, psychic Harper Connelly senses-and finds-two bodies in a grave. One of a man centuries-dead. The other, a girl, recently deceased. Harper’s investigation yields another surprise: the next morning, a third body is found-in the very same grave.

This one didn’t grab me like the first one did. There was just something missing, but I’m not sure what — some level of involvement. And I was a bit confused about Harper’s new feelings about Tolliver… She sees and treats him like her brother for all these years, and then all of a sudden she has “feelings” for him? That was a little weird, and out of place in this story. But I’ll likely read the third book, because I’m a sheep.

    If you are confused now, wait until the next book. I think it was a buddy read on Shelfari’s S/T group. Most readers were so okay with it. I was the only upset person.
