Every May, I look forward to reading the next book in Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire Mysteries. If you’ve only seen True Blood, the TV show based on the books, you’re missing out! The books are a great mix of romance and mystery with a cast of paranormal characters that include vampires, shapshifters, fairies, and telepaths. This year, the tenth book in the series, Dead in the Family, will be released. If you haven’t read the first nine, be sure to start now!
