Accompanied by her stepbrother, Tolliver (who works as her manager), Harper heads to small-town Arkansas for their next job. Her client is a socialite named Sybil Teague, who wants Harper to find a teenage girl who disappeared on the day her son was found shot dead in the woods. The girl, Monteen “Teenie” Hopkins, has a reputation for being “wild as a razorback,” and scandalous rumors abound about the two. But once Harper locates Teenie’s corpse a short distance from the spot where Sybil’s son died and reveals that she was shot in the back while trying to escape, the real trouble starts. As more town residents begin to turn up dead — and with her brother in jail on bogus charges — Harper must find the real killer before she becomes his next victim.
Grave Sight, is a terrific read filled with paranormal intrigue, hot romance, and some really clever mysteries.

First thought when finished: I really enjoyed this story!
What I Loved: Harper Connelly is a quirky, off-beat, and different type of leading character and I LOVED that about her. She embraces her gift of being able to tell how someone died and even turns it into a career. I am still not sure if the career is finding dead people or if it is identifying how someone died. It could be either and both would be super useful. Even though she is constantly met with cynicism she still helps people when she can. The mystery was pretty strong in this story and I enjoyed working it out. I figured out part of it half way through but the last twist I did not see coming. That is always fun!
What I Liked: I really enjoyed learning a little bit about Harper’s back story and getting glimpses of her family. I think these little windows into her past really rounded out Harper as a character and I can’t wait to learn more.
Audio Specific Review: Alyssa Bresnahan did a pretty good job at the narration. It took a bit to warm up to the male voices but I think she pulled off Harper well!
Final Thought: This was a pretty good little mystery with a quirky lead character that I really liked!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
