i prefer the sookie stackhouse series by charlaine harris. i find that heroine a lot more likeable, and the series is overall more humorous and well-planned. the romance is there, but it's more tasteful.

that being said, i am still enjoying this series very much. i thought this book was a clunker, but i'm glad i stuck it out because i'm to book 7 now and the series is really enjoyable. i don't think it's that R-rated and there wasn't even sex until book 6. the crime-solving here isn't as high quality as in the sookie series. a lot of the solutions seem to come from nowhere...
