The first good thing about the book is the protagonist has a decidedly different feel to that of Charlaine Harris’s most famous leading lady. There’s no confusing Harper Connolly with Sookie Stackhouse. I immediately liked many of the characters, and Harper comes across as strong but vulnerable, an intriguing combination. The series appears to be very much mystery thriller and has a more focused and mature quality to the work. I enjoyed trying to figure out the culprit. The end is logical and entertaining, but the twists to get there more so. One of four. I’m reading on. ( )

Just as good the second time around. I listened to the audiobook a number of years ago and enjoyed its unique spin on the paranormal mystery genre. What I remembered most were the characters Harper and Toliver and the tension between them. It was still there. The mystery itself was so-so but that’s probably because the revelation, somehow, had stayed with me all this time – or maybe it was just ok to begin with. At any rate, I'm ready for more of Charlaine Harris's great storytelling but I'll probably try a different series instead of continuing with this one. ( )

I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could. It was a good story, interesting protagonists. I got the gist of the "mystery" fairly early on, but I didn't give it enough thought to figure out the full who/what/why of it. Still an entertaining read. ( )

Harper is a strong gal with a strange gift. She can tell where dead bodies are and how they died. She received this "gift" after being hit by lightning when she was a teenager. Ms. Harris obviously did a lot of research about lightning strike victims and Harper comes across very real because of that.

I listened to the second story in this series before I read this first book. Looking forward to seeing what happens between her and her step-brother.

Ms. Harris certainly is good at making occult plot twists, but I am not sure I think that Harper would be as unpopular as the plots make out. I also don't care for the most negative characterization of small town southerners. It does make for a fast and easy read, however. ( )

When there is a murder, missing person or other deadly crime, Harper Connelly is often called to find and identify victims. But, she isn't a detective or an attorney. Harper is a psychic.

And not the usual sort of psychic. There are no readings, seances, or visions. Harper finds dead bodies. The dead call to her with an ever-present hum, the energy from their life and their emotions as they lived their last few moments. For Harper, cemeteries nearly vibrate with the energy from many bodies grouped in one place.

With the help of her step-brother, Tolliver, she assists police and grieving families to find the bodies of missing persons and other victims. Unfortunately, the people she helps often treat her like a pariah, looking down on her as someone who benefits from death and grief. Or, they openly accuse her of being a charlatan. Living with a power that came from being struck by lightning, Harper tries to maintain her sanity, while being insulted and threatened by the very people she helps.

Grave Sight is the first of four books in the Harper Connelly series. Charlaine Harris is also the author of the Southern Vampire (Sookie Stackhouse) series.

I enjoyed this book. Harper Connelly is an interesting character. She is often depressed because of the way people treat her, and she is traumatized at times by the flashes of death and grief she feels when finding a body. Her step-brother travels with her to help keep her grounded. At times, her relationship with Tolliver seemed a bit too close. At first, I was a bit put off by her constant depression and emotional neediness, but as I read further, I began to feel sympathy for her. She was ridiculed, humiliated and threatened by the very people who needed her help. She gets treated like a con artist everywhere she goes, even when she proves over and over again that she isn't a fake. Her power really is a curse. In her same predicament, I would probably be neurotic and depressed too.

I will definitely be reading more books in this series. It's a bit bizarre, but an enjoyable read.

My rating 7/10

Harper Connelly es una chica honesta, leal y, a los ojos de mucha gente, un poco rara. Desde que fue alcanzada por un rayo, posee un extraño don: puede encontrar a personas muertas y revelar cómo murieron, actividad mediante la que se gana la vida. En su primera aventura, Harper llega a una pequeña población de Arkansas con su hermanastro, que le hace de manager y de guardaespaldas, para localizar el paradero de unos niños que han desaparecido, pero allí descubrirá una compleja red de mentiras y asesinatos que pretende esconder un secreto para siempre.
