Surlygirl's Quick Comments:
This was a re-read for me after watching the full first season of HBO's TRUE BLOOD, based on this book. I'd forgotten some things and wanted to go back and refresh my memory.

Sookie Stackhouse is a waitress in a bar in Bon Temps. Vampires have become mainstreamed and she is working when she meets Bill Compton, a "newly" local vampire. Sookie is a telepath and she falls and hard for Vampire Bill because she can't "hear" him. However, someone is killing women in Bon Temps who appear to be fangbangers and someone close to Sookie is the main suspect. If you like vampires but in a cozier atmosphere, this is a great series to read. Highly recommended.
