Welcome back to Shakespeare - a charming Arkansas town with endless back roads, an eclectic mix of residents, and a dollop of noir. Featuring cleaning woman/karate expert Lily Bard, Charlaine Harris's series puts a unique spin on the traditional cozy to create mysteries that "work on every level. The writing and plotting are first rate [and] Lily is appealing in her own prickly way" --Washington Times

In the latest installment, Lily discovers lifelong Shakespeare resident Deedra Dean murdered inside a car parked in a woodsy area outside town. Determined not to get involved, Lily wants to leave the police work to Sheriff Marta Schuster and her team of deputies, and concentrate on cleaning, high kicks, and her boyfriend Jack's impending visit. But when Deedra's notoriously promiscuous lifestyle provides an extensive list of suspects but very few clues, Lily has no choice but to resume the roll of amateur detective and join the investigation.

In this fourth book in Charlaine Harris's highly acclaimed and darkly compelling series, Lily Bard delivers a hard-hitting mix of Southern charm and street smarts, a combination so alluring that long-time readers and newcomers will be dying to visit Shakespeare again.

This was the last of "Harris'" series that I had left to read, and I left the best series to last. The books are highly entertaining and hard to put down once you start to read them. I hope at some point she will go back and write more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the 4th installment of the Lily Bard Mysteries. Lily is her usual tough self but this time around she is showing a softer side than we have seen in the previous books. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is mainly because I found her a little too judgmental toward the victim but that is a personal preference. It actually makes Lily more real but it did rub me the wrong way. I still enjoyed the book and recommend the series.
