My review

Well now what can I say.... I love Aurora and to be able to read the first 4 stories in one go was a real treat, watching her go from a slightly desperate librarian to a slightly more confidant woman of leisure was fascinating and a pleasure.
The way the characters are painted makes you feel part of the scenery and part of the tapestry of their lives. There is just something very comforting about the way Charlaine Harris writes that draws you right into the peoples lives by allowing you to share all the little things that make up every day life. It makes you feel like this could be your life and that is a very addictive feeling and keeps me reading these books and in fairness reading book period!!
