Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris Chapter 1 " Vampires=drama" Pt1

Exciting start to new book – Is it May yet??

This is my notes from the first few pages – what do you guys think ??



Finally we visit the Stackhouse attic ..Charlaine has been tempting us with it for years!

Sookie gets Claude and Dermott to help her clean it out

She makes a burn pile of stuff in driveway and separates out photos and documents into boxes. There are dolls, guns and there is also a desk and some furniture.

Later at work , she mentions this to Sam and they make a plan to see if any of the furniture has value by talking to Brenda Hesterman at Splendide’s Antiques in Shreveport the next day.

Sam was going to buy a gift from them for new girlfriend Tannalynn Hopper.

There is a new bar that is competing for Merlotte’s business called Vick’s Redneck Roadhouse with specials like “ Bring in a Bubba night “

Kennedy Keyes ( she has fascinating past of being a beauty queen turned murderer) and Danny Prideaux come in to bar and shortly thereafter a Molotov cocktail is thrown through the window, burning Sookies hair , hurting Jane Bodehouse and causing fire damage.

I kept "refreshing" until the chapter popped up today and read it while still at work! Lots of new stuff and any day with a little Eric (albeit an angry one) is a good day!

I debated with myself all day on whether or not to read the chapter or to just wait for the book to come out in May, but temptation got me at my weakest. Felt really bad for Sookie though. I know from experience what getting your hair burned off is like.

I was checking everyday for the chapter to come out. I think it's off to a great start. So excited for this book. Eric calling a hairdresser for Sookie is so halarious. Is it May yet? I need my Sookie fix soon!

As always, Thanks Dallas!
