A Touch of Dead

A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris
Urban Fantasy
This is a book of short stories.  Sookie Stackhouse is the small town Louisiana barmaid with connections to all things supernatural.

Fairy Dust:
Sookie looks into the death of Claudette, one of the fairy triplets.  It seems to me that Claudine is the only fairy I like from all the books.

Dracula Night
Eric is convinced that this time Dracula really will show up for his birthday celebration at Fantasia.  Who is he kidding?  Remember this is Shreveport, Louisiana and Eric is just a sheriff.  I did love Eric being brought down a peg or two.

One Word Answer
This explains all about Hadley.  This was a good one as some of the Hadley situation was explained.  It would have been better included in the story so the readers were better informed.

This story reveals why one of the insurance agencies has fewer claims than the others.

Gift Wrap
Sookie is all alone one Christmas Eve and she gets a delightful gift in the form of a handsome stranger.  Sookie is all righteous on one hand but sure falls in lust real fast.

All were delightful fluffy reads. 

First Line: "The first time I was asked to write a short story about my heroine Sookie Stackhouse."
