Once is not custom, I'm going against a lot of advice I've read on this novel.
I found joy with the pen by Charlaine Harris manages to make a very dramatic without taking account. Far from Sookie and Harper Connelly, this story is in no versed in the supernatural or fantastic time, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised for this transition.
Often an author writes in a category, and when he decided to write something else, it is seldom a pleasure for the reader.
This is the fear that I had here. Because only the name Charlaine Harris attracts me, and if I had not read the opinions of copinautes, I would not have imagined a single second of this change of tone in the bibliography of an author I adore.
Lily Bard is a mixture of chick-lit, fleece and suspense smoothly conducted, for my part at least.
Characters, we learn to know throughout the novel are very endearing, Lily led by its history and the shell that was built around it to avoid injury.
But those who have affected me the most, it is the York particularly hard in this book, and the end just made me want to pour a small tear for them.
And I loved Claude Friedrich, the police chief, I strongly hope to see in the following volumes, and I hope to see dethrone Marshall in Lily's life! (Yes, I admit I have a weakness for big gruff big heart)
The story itself is nothing fabulous. A young woman who witnessed the scene of a strange and discovers a corpse, but did not want his name associated with the case and was what she saw. And will investigate to discover the end of the story in order to ensure her innocence and tranquility.
So why I liked? Because even if it is a known arch frame, the characters and their stories makes it very interesting. A heroine who has lived a horrible tragedy, we urge throughout the pages and made me shiver with fear and compassion when we learn the truth.
Stories in history that make the original frame and yet complicated enough involved ...
Anyway, I admit, once again, I'm not disappointed by Charlaine Harris, unlike many others.
And I really advise you to leave a chance this series certainly has not finished surprising us!
