Shakespeare, Arkansas, is a small Southern town with plenty of secrets, and Charlaine Harris’s Lily Bard, fresh from her acclaimed debut in Shakespeare’s Landlord, is just one more of its residents–albeit one harboring a few secrets of her own–with a desire to live quietly. Lily keeps to herself, between her job as a cleaning woman for several townspeople and her visits to the gym, where she’s a devotee of karate and bodybuilding. These two pursuits seem a bit odd for the petite Southern woman, but as work and play, they keep her focused and balanced.When a fellow gym member is found dead after a workout with a barbell across his throat, Lily wants to believe it’s an accident. But looking at the incident against the background of other recent events in Shakespeare, including a few incidents that appear to be racially motivated, she’s afraid it could be a part of something much, much bigger–and more sinister…in Shakespeare's Champion.

"Shakespeare's Champion" the second Lily Bard mystery, confirmed to me that I'm hooked on the series. Unfortunately, the plot of this book was give given away in Charlaine Harris' latest book, "Midnight Crossroad", so I already knew a lot of what would happen. That I still enjoyed the book is a tr...
My thoughts on this book are similar to the last. I wasn't crazy about the book (though it was OK) and it moves slower than I'd expect a 200 page mystery to move. I think the issue is, after two books, I still don't really like Lily or feel invested in her. Hopefully book three has more to offer tha...
*5 Stars*See review for previous volume for more about author, etc. Review for Shakespeare's Landlord *The Gush...and The Rant apparently* This second in the series continues Harris' excellent work I spoke of on the first book. We see many old faces in this one as well some new ones. Lily continue...
