Synopsis: Now that the vampires know about Sookie's ability to read minds, Eric and the rest of the bunch see ways that she might come in handy! With trouble always brewing for the vampires, trying to live in a world full of mortals that are both scared and fascinated by them, there is always some trouble around the bend.
As the second installment in the Southern Vampire Series, Living Dead in Dallas (Southern Vampire Mysteries, Book 2), sends Sookie and Bill off to Dallas to help solve a disappearing vampire situation. She soon gets in way too far, and finds herself mixed up with an anti-vampire group that wants to get rid of all vampires! In the process, Sookie sees a new side of Bill. Does she like his vampire habits & how they take him away from her?
Review: Part of me wants to like these books, but I can't tell if it's the mystery bit (as I've revealed in earlier posts, I have a real problem with mysteries...they just lose me), or if it's all the new characters we've been introduced to, but my mind kept wandering a bit. If you like mystery, and paranormal romance, then this one might fill both interests. The story is unique and engaging, and I think Harris has created a story that people can sink their teeth into (yes...pun intended), so I see why she has a hit on her hands. If I gave ratings, I think I'd give it a 3 out of 5, but please remember, I'm lousy with mysteries!
