Sometimes I am known to read a book or two. Last year I did not make an effort to read as much as I should have, but I am making an effort this year with my new Kindle. The Kindle just makes it soooo easy to read, light weight, no glare, easy on the eye.
The books that I read are no Pulitzer prize winners, but they are what I like, and you can’t argue with that. I have recently started trying to read books in my Kindle queue, one of those books is the other series by Charlaine Harris. (She writes the Sookie Stackhouse series, which is what the HBO show, True Blood is based on) The Harper Connelly series.
Harper Connelly, was struck by lightening when she was younger, and due to surviving that event, she acquired the gift of being able to feel ghostly presences. She uses her gift to help ease the minds of those still living by finding the the lost souls, although more than half the time, those who hire her, do not believe in her, and doubts her findings.
In the first book, she is commissioned to find a missing girl, and that’s when the trouble begins. It should have been an easy find, but Harper is haunted by the complicity of the death and she is soon involved in the mystery as well as the town. More people are starting to die, and Harper, being the outsider is being blamed for it. There is only one way for Harper to get out of this town alive, and that’s to solve this mystery, so that she can move on and find the person she’s really looking for.
I was so enthralled with the first book, that I immediately purchased 2 more on the Kindle. I haven’t read them yet, cuz I like to devour my books in one sitting, but they are there, ready for me to discover Harper’s adventures.
