Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sookie Stackhouse doesn't have that many relations, so she really hated to lose one - but of all the people to go, she didn't expect it to be her cousin Hadley, a consort of New Orleans' vampire queen - after all, Hadley was technically already dead.
But Hadley is gone, beyond recall, and she's left Sookie an inheritance, one that comes with a bit of a risk - not least because someone doesn't want Sookie digging too deep into Hadley's possessions ... or her past. Sookie's life is once again on the line, and this time the suspects range from rogue weres to her first love, the vampire Bill. Sookie's got a lot to do if she's going to keep herself alive ...
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This is book 6 in the ‘Southern Vampire’ AKA ‘Sookie Stackhouse’ series.
When Sookie needs to go to New Orleans to pack up her dead cousin Hadley’s apartment, she gets a whole lot more than she planned for, and even has a run in with the queen of Louisiana.
I liked this book more than the book before this, as this one seemed to actually have a bit of a storyline.
Sookie continued to be herself, and even had a new guy in her life in the form of a were-tiger called Quinn. She once again seemed irresistible to the paranormals around her, and managed to get herself in some sticky situations. She was also called upon to use her telepathy for a good cause or two though.
The storyline in this was okay, and there was an event at the half-way point that I totally wasn’t expecting that livened things up a bit. I did feel like the story got more interesting from that point on, and the second half was definitely more interesting than the first half.
The ending was okay, and there wasn’t a cliff-hanger.
Overall; an okay paranormal story.
7 out of 10.
