Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris
Someone is shooting weres in Bon Temps and Sookie is scared for her brother Jason, being that he’s a were-panther and all these days. Who has been shooting people? First one girl, then the were-panther named Calvin who has the hots for Sookie, and then Sam, Sookie’s boss.
Sam needs a temporary bartender so borrows one from Eric, who for the life, or unlife, of himself can’t remember what happened between him and Sookie when he was at her house. Eric loans Sam a pirate vampire, who is quite the rage at the little bar.
Someone sets Sookie’s house on fire, but it doesn’t make sense. Sookie doesn’t know the guy and his connection to nefarious people is slim. People are still poking around Sookie trying to determine who murdered Debbie Pelt, but Sookie knows who did it, of course. Meanwhile, Sookie’s friend Tara is holed up with a bad vampire. It’s just one thing after the other in the small town.
What I liked
I’m still totally jealous about all this man attention Sookie gets. Where’s all my man attention? How come no one offers to fix my house? It should totally happen.
Sookie is always into something and then some. It makes life interesting, that’s for sure.
What I didn’t like
This girl just can’t catch a break. Everyone is always after her. I feel like Sookie, except for the part about all the supernatural man attention. It seems like sometimes there’s just one thing after the other, after the other, and then after the other thing, that happens.
Somebody give this girl a vacation.
What would you do with yourself if you had like five guys after you?
If someone burned down your kitchen, what kind of kitchen would you build back?
