Disguising herself with short hair and baggy clothes, Lily Bard has started over in the sleepy town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, where - working as a cleaning lady - she can sweep away the secrets of her dark and violent past...

When Lily discovers the dead body of her nosy landlord, her plan to live a quiet, unobserved life starts to crumble. Lily doesn't care who did it. But as the unwanted attentions of the police chief and a suspicious community fall on her, she soon realizes if she doesn't unmask the murderer, her life might do more than crumble... it might end

My review

There is something very seductive about the way Charlaine Harris writes that draws you in and holds you captive.
She is able to pain a picture for you in a few words that allows you to be drawn right into her world and you feel part of it and you become friends with the people there allowing you to love, laugh and cry right along with the people you meet through her and Lilly Bard is our new best friend. I was intrigued with her right from the very start and wanted to know what she was about and about her past. What makes this work so well is the fact we get to see her life including all the day to day stuff that we have to do everyday. As the start to a series this gave us all the foundation of Lilly's life and her neighbours. I look forward to reading book 2 and seeing what Lilly gets up to next.
