I have to be honest, while I like the books overall, I'm happy to see it go because I'm a fan of Charlaine Harris's writing and this series never really showcased it.
She has a gift for small town and Southern voices that show up so much better in her Lilly Bard series, which is straight-up mystery, with no supernatural elements. (Though Lilly does show up in the Sookie novels in a cameo!)
Yes, the protagonist is triggery for some people, but in a field where everybody is writing about winsome innkeepers, charming caterers and dynamic reporters, a heroine who is a surly, guarded, kickboxing housekeeper is a breath of fresh air.
And her Harper Connolly series, about a young woman cursed with the horrible and bizarre supernatural ability to find dead bodies is a great study of how sometimes it can be a miserable life to play to your strengths and gifts.
So … yeah. I'm looking forward to what comes next.
