Charlaine Harris is already a star and a New York Times bestseller with her vampire mysteries starring Sookie Stackhouse and her Lily Bard mysteries. This second installment to her new supernatural mystery series might just be her biggest hit yet. Grave Sight's Harper Connelly is back, and her ability to find the dead and see their last moments is in higher demand than ever... A college class gets more than it bargained for when Harper gives a demonstration of her uncanny talent. Instead of just finding one body in an old grave, she finds two: the original occupant and a recently deceased girl whom Harper had tried, and failed, to find two years previously. To dispel suspicions about her own innocence, Harper and her stepbrother Tolliver undertake their own hunt to find the killer-only to find yet another body in the same grave.

I read the first book right away, and I don't remember...
It has been a long time since I finished the series, and I forgot many details, so I decided to simply review the final three books together. Besides, I would be only repeating the same things if I reviewed each book on its own. What I enjoyed the most about this series were definitely Harper’s ca...
Re-read #1 (10/6/13): And here the breadcrumbs begin to fall, as Harper and Tolliver go through the growing pains of a changing relationship. Even more awesome, Harper is reading a Dana Stabenow mystery during her downtime. If only I'd picked up that particular hint long ago, I could have found St...
