Charlaine Harris Home Improvement: Undead Edition ++ Sneak of new Sookie Short Story

Posted on July 23, 2011

Just a little snippet here. I was in Borders the other day and came across the new compilation of short stories CH edited with her cohorts in crime. Her website says its not due out till August but it was already on a few bookshelves. Anyway …

This short story finds Sookie with Sam, helping Tara and JB do some home modification on their house to accommodate their new twins. In the knocking down of a closet door they find a bloody hammer and uncover an 70 year old mystery. As it turns out, a boy next door (back in the 30s) was bludgeoned to death with said hammer. Now there is an angry and sad spirit plaguing the house and causing all those gathered, including their new clairvoyant nurse Quiana to feel it. Now Tara, JB and their twins need the help of clairvoyant Quiana, telepath Sookie, and bloodhound Sam to eradicate the spirit from the house.

It was a nice little read at only about 27 pages. Sorry Eric fans, he’s not in this one.

Thanks very much to
