This becomes important in this installment and should prove to be rather interesting in future books. A thoroughly enjoyable book in the Harper Connelly series.
Instead they find the body of a missing girl whose case they had worked previously without any luck. Surprose was definitely worth it, planning on reading more of this series.

Nov 29, Wayne McCoy rated it really liked it Shelves: Her assertion holds water. I’m going to say this in the nicest way possible, while I like these books and they’re a wonderful urban fantasy guilty pleasure, I think that Charlaine Harris isn’t a very good writer.
I hope I am not the only one this stupid. From Dead hadris Worse. Instead, she actually uncovers the body of a girl she had helped unsuccessfully to search for previously.
In an entirely different way to Georgette Heyer.
I am so truly happy that her books are becoming graphic novels. I will be looking for the next books in this series, and I’ll probably end up reading the actual novel.
That surpdise the part that interested the professor… At the request of anthropology professor Clyde Nunley, Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver come to Memphis to demonstrate Harper’s unique talent-in an old cemetery.
Harper and Toliver are seen leaving the city heading to their next job. The story of the mystery Harper can find dead people and know how they die by getting near or on their grave. Harper Connelly felt like an edgier, darker, stronger, less whiny and more mysterious version of Sookie Stackhouse.
And I can find dead people. Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over thirty-five years.
Grave Surprise (Harper Connelly, #2) by Charlaine Harris
Sadly at the time Harper was unsuccessful but harri she is invited by anthropology professor Dr. It didn’t strike me too well, though. However, I don’t think surpeise any hint of this in the previous book, so that was what I found unnatural. Harris is taking a premise and making it paper thin with each book. But just in case anyone has a really bad squick and needs to check that it’s not going that way, the spoiler is view spoiler [that Harper Yeah, I can’t help it, I like Charlaine Harris’ books.
I felt that the pacing was excellent. This one has several twists and turns. I enjoyed it Characters: She and her step-brother, Tolliver, for whom she appears to have a major crush, are in Memphis where Harper finds a grave with two bodies – one of which is the body of a child Harper had been trying to locate in a different city.
He has asked Harper to demonstrate her unique ability to find the dead and know how they died. It was great to read this story as a graphic novel.
Jus I didn’t realize that this wasn’t the first in the series. I am completely sucked in to Harper’s life – her ability, her frustration, her care and concern for the people we tend to over-look too often. The premise of Harper having received her “gift” via a lightning strike incident is very creative. This is one of my least favorite characters by Ms. Looking for a good book?
But the mystery is completely sepa 4. Dec 22, Daniel rated it it was amazing Shelves: I will be searching out more! So many hxrris in this book and the last, people make the mistake of thinking they’re husband and wife, and then get really uncomfortable when Harper says they’re siblings. One of those things being that Manfred shows up, and he’s a teenager, and his grandma is still alive.
It haeris be sad to be the MOST dumb person. That was really cool. Harfis story was pretty interesting, although I feel like there are a few loose ends that I’m hoping will be solved in the rest of the books. The art by Ilias Kyriazis is fine. I also feel like there were a few inconsistencies in terms of timeline, mostly in the beginning. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of series, and soon had her own traditional mystery books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden.
After holding down some low-level jobs, her husband Hal gave her the opportunity to stay home and write. The case is solved, but not without much drama, which I will not spoil here. We also get to see Harper’s doubt and vulnerability, especially as she questions her unspoken but deeply hidden feelings for her step brother who assists her.
