I believe this is Harris' first published mystery; it was originally published in 1981 and re-released in 2007. It's a very light, fun read. You can see elements of Aurora, Sookie, and Lily in the main character.

Harris's first novel about a young woman who believes her parents death was not a simple car accident. As events continue to unfurl in her small Mississippi town she tries to piece together the connection between a current murder and her parent's deaths.

Absolutely devoured this in an afternoon! Being from the South, I understood all the nuances of small-town Southern living. I was thrown for a bit by how dated some of the attitudes really were in the story until I looked at the copyright date and realized it was written over 25 years ago (I think this may be Ms. Harris' first book?)

Now I know I will be hunting her series novels!

I believe this is one of Charlaines best books, the writing, and the style are very comfortable! And the ending, WOW, didnt expect that!
There were a couple of spots in it, where I felt like I was watching the dumb blonde in a horror movie and Im going *idiot dont go thru that door!* But alas that is the way alot of people assume us women are like! HA

Great characters and story development. I just wanted to know what happened to the main character after the mystery was solved.

A very fast read and back to what Charlaine Harris does best. She really gets you involved in the characters and you grow attached to them.
