Title: Grave Secret
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
The Blurb: Harper, who can not only locate bodies but also deduce the cause of death, and her boyfriend, Tolliver Lang, are summoned to Texas by members of the wealthy Joyce family, who are looking for answers behind the death of their patriarch, Rich. But when an act of violence threatens the pair, Harper realizes that the circumstances behind Rich’s death may have ties to her own troubled childhood in nearby Texarkana. Further complicating matters, Tolliver and his drug addict father, who’s recently been paroled, have an uneasy reunion that stirs up long-buried memories about the unsolved disappearance eight years earlier of Harper’s older sister, Cameron.
My Thoughts: This is the final book in the Harper Connelly mystery series and was brilliantly wrapped off with all the loose ends tied up and the story completed – while still keeping the door open for more possible investigations for Harper and Tolliver. GRAVE SECRET is a more personal investigation than the previous three – Harper and Tolliver are now a couple but there are family issues and the unsolved disappearance of Harper’s sister to follow up on. As with all the books in this series there is a dark edge to the story with murder past, present and attempted; the family dynamics shifting, unforgiving and throwing out surprises. Author, Charlaine Harris manages to sugar-coats the plot with witty repartee, humour and a touch of romance. I am disappointed the series has come to an end, but satisfied with the ending – I have closure.
Rating: B – Really Good Read
