Book Review ~ Grave Surprise

I read Grave Surprise for the RIP II Challenge, 2nds Challenge & the Fall Book Challenge.

I loved the first book in the Harper Connelly Mysteries, so I couldn't wait to read Grave Surprise (Harper Connelly Mysteries, No. 2).

From Publishers Weekly
At the start of Harris's winning second supernatural caper to feature Harper Connelly (after 2005's Grave Sight), a skeptical anthropology professor, Clyde Nunley, tests Harper's gift of clairvoyance in a historic Memphis cemetery, where Harper correctly senses a fresh corpse in the wrong grave. Strangely, the body turns out to be a missing 12-year-old girl, Tabitha Morgenstern, whom Harper failed to locate in Nashville on a case two years earlier. The hotel suite of Harper and her manager and stepbrother, Tolliver Lang, both of whom fall under suspicion, becomes a magnet for a medley of amusing characters, including Memphis cops, Tabitha's assorted relatives and a drunken Clyde Nunley, who, shortly after accusing Harper of fraud, is found dead in the same grave as Tabitha. Peppered with the author's trademark deadpan wit, this book should help make Harper and Tolliver as popular as Sookie Stackhouse, the heroine of Harris's vampire mystery series (Definitely Dead, etc.). Author tour. (Sept. 26)

I think the author did a great with the 2nd book. I think I enjoyed it even more then the first. I like the way that the characters are developing. I can't wait to read the third book & I want to give her other series a try.
