A Touch of Dead, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her job as a cocktail waitress in Merlotte's, a small-town bar in small-town Bon Temps, deep in Louisiana.

She's funny and pretty and, thanks to her grandmother, she's very well-mannered - but since not many people truly appreciate her ability to read their minds, the guys haven't exactly been beating down her door ...And then along came Bill, tall, dark and handsome - and Sookie couldn't 'hear' a word he was thinking.

He was exactly the type of guy she'd been waiting all her life for.

Of course, Bill had a disability of his own: fussy about his food, not into suntans, bit of a night person: yep, Bill was a vampire.But at least now Sookie knows there *are* guys she can date who won't worry about her catching them thinking about other women ...And that's going to make Sookie's life really interesting!

Review by

It’s a compilation of Sookie Stackhouse short stories. My favourites were “Lucky” and “Gift Wrap” and also “Dracula Night”, which I had already read before. It’s a very cute book and I will certainly read it again, since it really is a simple, fun and fast read.

Review by

"Fairy Dust" and "One Word Answer" were my favourite stories.
