Sookie Stackhouse #10

Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

Family Matters!

Sookie is coming to terms both physically and emotionally with the outcome of the recent Fairy War. Not only have lives been lost including Claudine's, her cousin and fairy godmother, but others have left her with no prospect of returning. Amelia is returning to New Orleans and Niall and the fairies have left this world for their fairy land never to return.

For a woman with little family remaining Sookie is inundated with family requests. Claude, Sookie's gorgeous and arrogant cousin, asks to move in but he is not the only fairy prowling around Sookie's home. Hunter's father Remy asks for assistance with Hunter's gift and Jason, thankfully, is settling down again spending more quality time with his sister.

But Sookie is not the only one to be affected by family. Bill, still suffering from silver poisoning, pays a family visit and is intern paid a visit by long lost 'family'. And with her recent marriage to Eric, and the blood bond between them, Sookie is feeling the effects of the in-laws more acutely then ever when Eric is plagued by 'family' of his own.

Dead in the Family sees family descend and their problems dictate over the lives of Sookie and her friends as only family can. But when your family feuds involve vampires and fairies someone is likely to end up seriously maimed, if not staked. But you can hardly refuse family, even if they are unwelcome and unwanted. Another Sookie tale that is as addictive and bloody as ever.
