Definitely Dead [Harris]

Book: Definitely Dead [Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse Book 6]
Author: Charlaine Harris
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: There's a new love in Sookie's life, were-tiger Quinn. After they are attacked on their first date, she isn't sure who the target was. Meanwhile, Sookie's estranged cousin has Hadley died and Sookie must travel to New Orleans to clean up her apartment, meet with Hadley's lover (the Queen of Louisiana), and try to figure out who killed Hadley.

The weakest of the series thus far, the pace of this book was slow and the dialogue was not as sharp as previous entries. While reading this book I discovered there are a few 'in between mini-books' which provided some background for this story (at many points I found myself asking-when did that happen?).

Recommend: if you've read the previous books and are committed to the series yes. If you want to start reading the series, don't start at this one.

Book Junkie's Grade: C+
