Sookie Stackhouse - Tacky

Tacky by Charlaine Harris

Everybody Loves A Wedding!

Tacky is a short story in the Sookie Stackhouse universe that has been published in the book My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding. A book of short stories about supernatural weddings from a number of different authors.

Sookie Stackhouse does not feature in this story.
Here we are introduced to Dahlia, Dahlia's best friend Taffy is getting married. To a Werewolf. No one seems to be pleased about this union except Taffy and her future husband, the Werewolf packmaster Don. Despite her feelings, Dahlia is going to do all she can as bridesmaid to make sure the wedding is a success. Oh, did I mention that Dahlia and Taffy are vampires.

Even before the big day there are problems, attempted murders. And it's not just the supernatural community that feels that this wedding is unnatural. Should a wedding between a vampire and a Werewolf be permitted? Will it go on without a hitch? Or will the body count mount up?

It's a quirky little, short story with a feel good, fairytale, 'happily ever after' ending. As long as you have read the first Sookie Stackhouse novel you will have a basic understanding of the background to this story.
