YOU'RE INVITED: Read Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris with us!

It's my turn to select a book for this month's online Authors by the Alphabet Book Club. We're up to the letter H and I chose Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris. Grave Sight is the first book in The Harper Connelly mystery series, first published in 2005.

Summary from the publisher:
Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who's passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living—but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent—even if the dead can wait forever.

I'd like to invite you to read it with us this month and join our book club discussion here on my blog at the end of the month. Maybe you've read Harris' popular Sookie series? This is the perfect excuse to try something different from the author. So head to the library or bookstore, grab the book and start reading!

The Authors by the Alphabet Book Club is an online book club that was started by Paula who blogs at Tome's Devotee and is made up of a small group of bloggers who take turns every month selecting a book for the group to read and discuss, making our way through the alphabet by author last names. The person who makes the monthly selection is the one to host a discussion on her (his) blog on the last Thursday of the month. New members are always welcome!

  1. What a great choice. I have not read this series of Harris' but I've heard a lot about it. I think I need to give it a try...the problem is with my event at my blog I don't think I'd be able to read it by the time the discussion takes place. :-( I'll keep it in mind and if the opportunity arises I will read it!

  2. I've read the first two in the series. I'm going to be curious as to your thoughts on the series and the relationships within.
    Hope you and yours are having a great week!

  3. Deanna... Ha! Well, if you find you have some time between all those Christmas-themed novels and movies this month, I welcome you to give this book a try! But I totally understand how hectic the holiday season is over on your blog right now. LOL!

    Brandy... I did read something a tad bizarre on amazon yesterday about Harper and her stepbrother. Yikes.

  4. I loved both books and went and got #3 from the library yesterday. They are step sibs so no blood relation, but nothing has really happened in 1 or 2. I like Harper :)
