Nobody believed her So she stayed taking a job at the local paper to try to both convince the sheriff that she was right and maybe convince herself she was wrong After all her father had been the town doctor loved she always thought by all To think he was killed was to think that one of her friends or neighbors has harbored some deep resentment toward him Then she finds the dead bo. As a great fan of Harris s Southern Vampire Series with Sookie Stackhouse I was interested in reading her other work I just read Shakespeare s Landlord and really disliked it so I was leery when I picked up this book one of Harris s earliest I was however pleasantly surprised I found Catherine Linton to be a likable character and the story to be engaging Catherine has returned to inhabit her parents house in a small Mississippi town after their suspicious deaths in a car accident Not long after her arrival her parents have been dead for six months she is out practicing her shooting on land she rents to a planter when she makes a nasty discovery a woman who has been beaten to death and dumped in a rundown shack Catherine is soon wrapped up in the drama as another dead body is discovered on her property Are the murders linked Catherine works to find out as well as tie up the mystery of her parents deaths Other reviewers have mentioned that this is an early book and is not as well written I would agree but I was much interested in the characters and the story than I was when reading Shakespeare s Landlord I honestly will not be reading any of that series The story was not as fun kitschy humorous or involving as the Southern Vampire books but it was enjoyable and I was fairly satisfied with the ending It was a surprise I didn t guess it but it didn t seem extremely feasible either
