For the first time, I noticed that though an attempt had been made to level this grave-it bore the flattened spots that blows with a shovel on soft dirt would have produced-the earth had been recently turned. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30.

Considering the cold weather, it wasn't too surprising that we didn't see a soul as we backed out of the garage and drove to the end of the street to turn right, to get back to more familiar territory.

Harper is a small business woman who sells her services for a price (expensive).
She explains the terms to her client before they sign the contract. Surprise
happens when she actually does what she promised to do: find the body.
Payment is due upon legal identification of the corpse, but collecting it is
another issue. The body is real, people see it, people deal with it according
to their custom, law, religion, etc. and provide the burial. Still, it can't be true,
people think, can't be real - she must have performed magic, used secret
knowledge climinally obtained or, in some devious way, cheated.
The client looks like a fool, won't pay and doesn't want her collecting
any rewards, either. The police want to arrest her - but, for what?
Every case - wash, rinse, repeat. Yeah, it's funny!
This is the second book in the Harper Connelly Mystery series.

When Harper Connelly was a young girl she was struck by lightning. Since the lightning strike there are several oddities that are now a normal part of her life; weakness in one of her legs, a spider web pattern on her leg, headaches and oh yeah, she can locate dead people. If Harper is in a reasonable distance of a corpse she can find its exact location and see the deceased's final moments.

Harper and her stepbrother, Tolliver, travel to Memphis to hold a demonstration of her talents at a very old cemetery whose records have just been located. Professor Nunley brings her out there thinking to prove her a charlatan in front of his class, only to have Harper accurately name the deceased and their causes of death. When she stumbles on a recent burial of a young girl, the professor thinks he has won. But, of course, Harper is right and memories of a case she wasn't able to solve come flooding back when she knows she finally found the poor girls body.

Harper and Tolliver are then the center of a media storm as Harpers gift is scrutinized and the search for the killer begins...

I admit to being a little put off by the unusually close relationship Harper and Tolliver seem to share. I don't know why, maybe it's because I have a brother and if he did half the things that Tolliver does, I'd scream, flee, then vomit... and I am sure the feeling is mutual. During the first book, Grave Sight (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 1), I had to repeat "they are step siblings; there is no blood between them." I think half way through this book I finally got over it. Halfway through this book I began to see beyond the "step" label and just see two people who share an intense past and who love and care for one another, deeply.

This was a great follow up to Grave Sight (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 1). I was pleased to find the mystery a little more challenging then the first one and found myself flip flopping through the list of suspects. I thought the characters gave the reader an interesting mix of feelings, often times both sympathy and suspect. I already ordered the third book, An Ice Cold Grave (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 3), and then went on Charlaine Harris's web site to see when I might be able to get the fourth book. It's safe to say, I am hooked!
I love Charlaine Harris's books, and having read her True Blood series, Shakespeare and Aurora Teagarden books, I decided to try these novels about Harper Connelly who, since she was struck by lightning several years ago, can determine the cause of death when she comes in contact with a body. I thought the first book in the series was okay, but not stellar -- largely because Harper is kind of a humorless character; nevertheless, I found the premise intriguing enough to give it another try, and am glad I did. I think this second book of the series was better than the first, and I look forward to reading more.

This novel starts with Harper doing a demonstration in front of a college class. The professor hopes to debunk her "gift", but is shocked when she gives a remarkable demonstration at a local cemetery. Even more remarkable, though, is that she finds two bodies in one gravesite -- one belonging to a victim Harper had tried unsuccessfully to find 18 months earlier. The police are skeptical and believe she must have had something to do with the murder, and her brother/manager is having troubles of hi own, as an ex-lover complicates their stay in town.

Fun read, good mystery.
