Charlaine Harris - From Dead to Worse

I actually read this one a couple of weeks ago (I polished it off the same day I picked it up from the library) but had been too lazy to blog about it earlier. I think this latest book is better than the previous offering but still, something seems to be lacking when compared to the earlier books in the Sookie Stackhouse series. There wasn't really much of a mystery in this one, with Sookie getting involved in one hairy situation to another. I never thought I would say this, but these books have been getting increasingly chaste. It seems like the less action there is in the bedroom for Sookie, the body count starts getting higher! Not that Sookie needs to be having sex in every book, but I certainly hope Harris will stop changing partners for Sookie. Now that Quinn is out of the picture, looks like the fight is back to between Bill, who would die for her, and Eric, who now remembers the time when he lost his memory! All very exciting, but this yoyo-ing back and forth does get annoying. Throw in her dead cousin's baby and who knows what can happen in Book 9. I will always keep going with these books, but I wish there can be some resolutions so that Sookie can just concentrate on the mysteries. It's time the poor girl got a break with her love life!
