This book had a little bit of everything: mystery, humor and a dab of romance. It was a fun read, certainly not to be classified as anything but, and I greatly enjoyed it. I liked the character of Bill the most, while Sookie could be somewhat slow on the uptake (so a tad annoying at times). It also took some adjustment period with the southern words and phrases, some which as a yankee I did not know offhand. ;) Overall though, the book left me wanting to read more and learn more about the characters. Therefore I look forward to continuing the series.
