Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris

iconiconI fell in love with the Sookie Stackhouse books about a year and a half ago, so when I saw another book by the same author available in ebook format from my library, I jumped right on it.

Grave Sight is a quick read about a young woman who travels around the country with her brother, solving murder mysteries.  She is able to do this because she senses dead people, ever since she was hit by lightning as a child.  Her brother, who is actually her step-brother (I wonder if there will ever be any interesting developments there later in the series), more or less acts as her manager.

Grave Sight picks up when they've been doing this for a little while, as you gather by all the stories that crop up about previous jobs they've done.  (There were enough references to previous jobs that I actually kept checking to make sure I'd started with the first book.)  It's the beginning of the series, and you can see that it's going to be an interesting one.  Grave Sight wasn't very long, though, and I wonder if all of the books are that way.

Definitely a fun, quick read by a favorite author.  It may not be about vampires, but I love Charlaine Harris's style just the same!
