Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She’s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn’t get out much – not because she’s not pretty, she’s a very cute bubbly blonde, or not interested in a social life – she really is … but Sookie’s got a bit of a disability. She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable.

And then along comes Bill: he’s tall, he’s dark and he’s handsome – and Sookie can’t ‘hear’ a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the type of guy she’s been waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he’s fussy about his food, he doesn’t like suntans and he’s never around during the day …
Yep, Bill’s a vampire. Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble – of the murderous kind.

And then one of Sookie’s colleagues at the bar is killed, and it’s beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim …


‘This book is one of the most entertaining books I’ve ever read. It has comedy, suspense, romance and fantasy! What more could you possibly want? Clearly the author has a very twisted sense of humour which I loved! There was one incident that had me laughing so hard I nearly fell of my chair!‘ Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
