Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11) by Charlaine Harris
With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows...
I can't pass up a little bit of paranormal romance in my reading. I've been waiting for this book at the library since I was #50 on the hold list. I was not disappointed. I love the Sookie Stackhouse series and Charlaine Harris never disappoints. Eric & Sookie are a cute couple (although if you've watched True Blood on HBO, I don't like the Eric character...not what I imagined). Sookie is always getting into some sort of trouble with the supernatural beings she has hanging around. This book was filled with excitement and longing. I hate how it ended because I hoped for so much more of a wrap-up! I guess there must be another one coming, right?!
