CRIME REVIEW: Lily Bard 3: Shakespeare's Christmas - Charlaine Harris

Release Date: 10/11/11


Lily Bard has started over in the quiet town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, where she works as a cleaning lady. But she's about to go back to where she came from, and where Lily goes, danger follows ...Determined to move beyond her violent past, Lily heads to Bartley, her hometown, for her sister's Christmas Eve wedding. But there's something in the air besides festive cheer: the town's doctor and nurses have been bludgeoned to death, and Lily's detective boyfriend has followed an eight-year-old kidnapping case straight to Bartley. It just might have something to do with the murders ...and with her sister's fiance. With only three days to the wedding, Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister promises to love, honour and obey a killer.


Another cracking Harris title and one that for the time of year is going to be a lot of fun to help the reader unwind from the hard days preparations. As with the other titles its wonderfully creative, the cast continues to grow and with the current mystery its one that is going to be hearbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. It’s intriguing, it’s an arc that won’t let you go and its definitely one that will stay with you until the final page is turned and you discover all the inner truths behind the latest tale.

Well written, thought provoking and it’s a cracking read all in that I absolutely couldn’t put down. It really does show how far Charlaine has come on in these series and why she’s one of the biggest names in the Urban Fantasy genre today.
