I liked this book way more than I thought that I would. I am not usually a fan of vampire fiction, but I love the premise of this novel. Basically, since the advent of synthetic blood, vampires can now "come out of the closet" and admit their existence. This allows them to walk amongst humans. The heroine of the book, Sookie Stackhouse, has her own secrets. She is telepathic. When she meets her first vampire, she realizes she cannot read his mind and enjoys the silence. The book takes some twists and turns and leads us to Sookie's romance with vampire Bill alongside the mystery of someone who is killing off women who date vampires. I had a lot of fun reading this, and also enjoyed trying to solve the mystery along with Sookie. I would recommend this to people who don't mind a little fantasy and humor in their mystery novels.
Love blossoms between Sookie Stackhouse, a cocktail waitress who keeps to herself because of her ability to read minds, and Bill, a vampire with ties to a crowd that may be responsible for the death of one of Sookie's coworkers.
