Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who’s passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she’s providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living – but she’s used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she’s become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it’s always urgent – even if the dead can wait forever.


I am familiar with some of the authors other work and am a fan of The Sookie Stackhouse Book Series, so I knew what to expect from Ms. Harris going in. Grave Sight is the first book of the Harper Connelly Series.  In this book we meet Harper Connelly and her step-brother/manager Tolliver Lang.  Harper can locate dead bodies with a psychic sense that she now has after being struck by lightning.  Families call on her to help them find missing loved ones, etc.  Harper is a detective in her own right as she interviews family and friends to get a sense of the person she is looking for and clues as to where to look.  Pretty cool storyline!   The book is a relatively easy read.  I am curious to see how the main character, Harper Connelly, develops and what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, in the books that follow. The first book left me wanting more. My only complaint with this story is that the author didn’t make it difficult to figure out “who done it”.  I prefer to have more of a surprise when I finished a book like this, but I will continue the series to see how it goes.
