Dead as a Doornail [Harris]

Book: Dead as a Doornail [Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse Book 5]
Author: Charlaine Harris
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: Life is tough for telepathic barmaid Sookie Sackhouse. There is a sniper trying to kill non-humans in her hometown of Bon Temps, her house almost burns down, her sexy boss Sam (who likes to hang out as a lovable collie sometimes) is shot, and her hot, single friend Alcide Herveaux wants her help in securing his father's bid to become the next leader of the local werewolf pack. Throw in Sookie's fairy godmother and we have one well-rounded story.

While this book doesn't focus as much on Sookie's love life as the previous books, there are enough subplots to keep any reader involved. Like previous books, there is sharp dialogue, laughter and a bit of mystery.

Recommend: yes

Book Junkie's Grade: B
