Dead in the Family - the next one in the series

Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse, #10)Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As far as Sookie books go this one was not quite up to the level of the others. It really felt like a stepping stone. To a future plot and maybe a little back history fill in. Being a fan of True Blood made it a bit confusing because of some of the tangent story details that the series has created conflicts with some of the details in this book (ie Godrick was not Eric's maker). I did really like the interaction between Andy, Portia, Bill, Caroline and Sookie. Everytime something dramatic and action packed was to happened or was happening Sookie was either leaving to avoid, getting there after the fact or coming in at the end and missing the build up. All the action just seemed laid out on the plate but they was not anticipating and being teased buy the auroma wafting around while it cooked. As these stories go, it was easy to grasp and a fast read. I really hope it builds up to a more exciting next book.
