#1 in the Sookie Stackhouse Series.
I’m doing a cozy re-read of the Sookie books and have never wrote reviews for them before so I will this time around.
Sookie Stackhouse, barmaid, sister, granddaughter, finds herself wrapped up in a murder mystery involving vampires, a serial killer, and other surprises. When women her brother Jason has slept with start ending up dead, the local law enforcement beings putting a case together against him. Sookie tries to do a little investigating of her own but only finds out more questions, how dangerous vampires are, and that she herself may have been an intended target. Along the way, she finds love, secures friendships, and discovers secrets of those closest to her.
The Sookie books are probably one of my all time favorite series and I love listening to them on audiobook because Johanna Parker kills it as Sookie. Sookie is a hard working, honest southern gal, who is quick witted, intelligent, and a little bit unusual. She gets her first boyfriend in her 20s and begins navigating the confusing world of dating.. even more confusing when her boyfriend is a vampire who is attempting to “mainstream”, or live amongst humans. This book is a good mix of romance, mystery, murder, and urban fantasy. All the characters were created well and written to have very distinct personalities and traits.
I gave this book 5 out of 5. If you like urban fantasy and have not yet read this, check it out! I listen to these books often and will continue to do so for a long, long time.
