Amazon Editorial Review:
When Lily stumbles upon the well-built corpse of a local body builder-his neck broken by a barbell-the town's underlying racial tension begins to boil over. The white victim was somehow connected to two unsolved murders of black residents of Shakespeare-and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. But it is Lily herself who may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.

Journal Entry 2 by FrancesinSA on Monday, November 16, 2009
I enjoyed the first book more but I would still like to read the others in this series. Lily Bard, cleaning lady has had a rough life.

From Library Journal:
"Lily Bard is the equal of Kay Scarpetta, Kinsey Millhone and V.I. Warshawski."

Journal Entry 5 by Lottiotta from Aberdovey, Wales United Kingdom on Thursday, February 04, 2010
I'm really excited to read these two books. :) In fact, I'm just re-reading the first two in the Sookie Stackhouse series so that I can catch up on the later books in the series without getting confused! So this is just perfect. :) Thank you so much for the sweet postcard, FrancesinSA, and thank you for sending the books to me. I'll read them ASAP and get them posted as soon as I can.

Anyone who's curious about what I'm reading can take a look at my Goodreads bookshelf, it shows page numbers and currently reading and so on. :)

As I mentioned in the other journal entry, I didn't feel like the first book was something special. I did enjoy it, but I don't have a burning desire to read this second one. So I am going to skip it, and I just sent nediamnori87 a PM to get an address. Thank you, FrancesinSA, for sending this book to me and organising the ring. :)

I posted this to nediamnori87 about half an hour ago with Shakespeare's Landlord, using second class post. I sent it from the Walter Road post office, and it cost £1.85 for both of them.

Arrived over the weekend thank you for sending them to me

Journal Entry 8 by nediamnori87 from St Andrews, Scotland United Kingdom on Friday, February 19, 2010
I enjoyed this book far better than the first one. The character seems to have settled down and you're only mostly dealing with one mystery. I'm not sure I like the way she introduced the new character to the book, I would have preferred it again if she'd just gone straight out and told us what his secret was. I know necessarily that this isn't a good litarary tatic but if you're following the book from the point of view of Lily it would make sense to know what she knows as soon as she knows it.

Thank you again for sharing

Journal Entry 11 by Jonniboi from Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Sunday, March 14, 2010
This was really good but found it a bit repetitive, but I didn't know what rating I should choose, and so therefore I just went with 9 which is a good rating, in my opinion as it suits how good this book is!

Shall be sending it out next week or maybe tomorrow!

Arrived today. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks Jonniboi

Journal Entry 14 by TracyW on Sunday, April 11, 2010
This feels very much like this series is going the way of Anita Blake's Vampire Hunter series. All these guys keep falling for Lily left, right and centre, she keeps getting into fights (including one before the story starts), there's a big fight scene at the end, horrible things are threatened to the heroine, etc. Is the series going to get more and more pornographic?
Although I did appreciate the unusual direction Harris took with the rich guy in the story. Nice change there.

Book Review: I really enjoyed this book! I like Lily Bard, she has had a rough life, but is trying not to let that stop her from helping people and herself when in danger. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series! Thanks for sharing your books FrancesinSA!

I have Rrrcaron's address and will be mailing both books soon!

I thought a quick update might be appreciated.

I presently have just a couple books in front of the first book in this series and this one. Hope to start this series very soon.
