Few clues Lily has no choice but to resume the roll of amateur detective and join the investigationIn this fourth book in Charlaine Harris's highly acclaimed and darkly compelling series Lily Bard delivers a hard hitting mix of Southern charm and street smarts a combination so alluring that long time readers and newcomers will be dying to visit Shakespeare again. a LOT of victim blaming in this one apparently sleeping with than a dozen men in years means you re basically asking to be raped mutilated and left dead in the woods i m aware that this was published 14 years ago and attitudes toward sexual assault have come a long way in that time but there s still no excuse for the ridicule doled out by the main character and everyone around her towards the murdered girl in this novel Lily makes the unconvincing statement at the end that because Deedra s death resulted from a strength of hers efficient use of a VHS recorder rather than her weakness promiscuity she didn t actually deserve the contempt heaped on her this means next to nothing to Lily however and she resolves to continue thinking of Deedra how she did when the girl was alive still with contempt how that makes sense or excuses any of the victim blaming from a main character which has undergone rape and mutilation herself i don t know i ll read the last one in this series as i want to know what happens with Lily in the end but I ve lost a good deal of respect for her character

Review Shakespeare's Trollop

Shakespeare's Trollop

Ra Dean murdered inside a car parked in a woodsy area outside town Determined not to get involved Lily wants to leave the police work to Sheriff Marta Schuster and her team of deputies and concentrate on cleaning high kicks and her boyfriend Jack's impending visit But when Deedra's notoriously promiscuous lifestyle provides an extensive list of suspects but very. I ve discovered that one of the things I like about all of Charlaine Harris series is that the characters change and growWhen we first meet Lily Bard in the first book of the series she is an almost totally isolated victim of a horrific crime But almost without her noticing it some things have changed She is no longer running from town to town trying to be invisible She has created a cleaning business from scratch even though she calls herself a maid and even though she only has one employee herself She has put down roots and bought a house She has joined a gym and is making herself someone who is no longer a victim by learning how to protect herself with karate and weight liftingIn that book she also begins to make some real friends and also begins to dateBy book four she has become part of the life of her town And she isn t invisible any Her life has become entangled in the lives of the other town members This time the body belongs to one of the people she cleans for And she spends the entire book being entangled with the County Sheriff and the mystery of who Deedra Dean really is really going on with Deedra s extended familyHer personal life also changes as her friendships entangle her with life and as her love for Jack intensifies

Welcome back to Shakespeare a charming Arkansas town with endless back roads an eclectic mix of residents and a dollop of noir Featuring cleaning womankarate expert Lily Bard Charlaine Harris's series puts a uniue spin on the traditional cozy to create mysteries that work on every level In the latest installment Lily discovers lifelong Shakespeare resident Deed. But it was not her weakness that had caused her death it was one of her strengths that had killed herMany readers have been turned off by the disparaging inner thoughts from the main character Lily about victim s lifestyles and slut shaming I ve seen from reviews that some wouldn t even continue the series Now I wouldn t stop the series over something such as that since I know many books start with a character that needs to grow into realization and knowledge This book highlights the annoyances so many hold about Lily not apologizing and actually enhancing the prejudiceShakespeare s trollop is even named after the town trollop that Lily mentally disses in each book I m not a fan of slut shaming either but Harris did make it clear the victim has always been ridiculous undiscriminating with who she sleeps with how often the toys the tapes There may be a light at the end of the tunnel however as Lily closes her eyes on the last page thinking deeper about Deedra and her lifeThere was a scene that especially irked me Lily felt violated and angry about Deedra s death eventually and in one scene was angry while using her anger against the punching bag She was trying to reassure herself by saying She was nothing She was nothing while punching That s a low blow Deedra may have been slutty by Lily s terms but a nothing because of that For shame Lily For shame HarrisThere s not a high mystery this time around either Lily ponders here and there but does not do actual snooping Things just kind of fall into place as she encounters a situation after another There is a development with Jack of course that s big for Lily I m not feeling realism in their relationship or spark from him Claude and Carrie are sweet and that development was uick The villains turned out very surprising as the person s been around for awhile and this kind of came out of nowhere That said it wasn t unrealistic because of thatbut it was impossible for a mystery reader to ever guess It was of a thrillersuspense book shock ending not a reasonable conclusion a detective could solve until one of the last page clues

    Alas poor Deedra we knew her well This fourth book in the Lily Bard series is Deedra's story in the worst way as Lily finds her dead and violated in her car at the beginning of the story Since fans of the series know Deedra town slut and one of Lily's employers from the first three books it has an extra poignancy and the depth it adds to the mystery is another reason why I think this series is Charlaine Harris at her best Lily

    The fourth outing for Lily Bard and my fourth in three days this was as easily readable as its predecessors but also managed to irritate me than some of the others thanks to Lily's constant judgement of the victim the titular town 'trollop' the title in itself winds me up some Deedra DeanThroughout the series Lily has very much disapproved of Deedra's lifestyle with many visits from many men but when she fin

    I didn't like this one as much because Lily was so damn judgemental of the trollop that it annoyed me and took me out of the book I see that it's true to her character but it still rubbed me the wrong way
