Sookie Stackhouse is a smart, savvy waitress in a small Southern town. Her ability to read minds gives humans the creeps. So her old boyfriend, Bill, seems perfect for her: since vampires are dead, Sookie can’t read their minds. At last, she’s with a man who might surprise her. But when the pair breaks up, Sookie hopes she can go back to her uneventful, pre-vamp existence. As if.
In Dead to the World, Sookie starts the New Year off with a bang by finding Bill’s “boss,” vampire Eric, running half-naked through the woods. Seems someone stole mighty Eric’s memory—and dropped the gorgeous and now vulnerable vampire right into Sookie’s lap. Eric might end up the only friend Sookie’s got, especially after her brother, Jason, goes missing—and a bloody footprint is found behind his house. Before she can say “Boo!”, Sookie finds herself in the middle of the most violent, bloody turf war that vampires, witches and werewolves have ever known….
In Dead As A Doornail, somebody is gunning for the two-natured, and if Sookie gets in the way, so much the better. Shifters are going down, and her brother, Jason, is a suspect. A wicked new vampire named Mickey has his lethal sights set on Sookie, and her old boyfriend Bill—and newer vampire love, Eric—will fight to the death to save her.
Sookie hopes they don’t kill her in the process….

I needed a break from Ms. Hamilton so I decided to give Ms. Harris a shot and I was not let down. I started with "Dead in Dixie" and was glad to find another collection. Sookie Stackhouse is quite an original character, not too badgirl or unrealistically superhero.
