“Sookie Stackhouse has finally settled into a relationship with the Viking vampire Eric, and her errant brother Jason seems to have his life in order, too. But all the other people in Sookie’s life – Eric himself, her former lover Bill, her friend and boss Sam – are having family problems. Eric’s maker shows up with Eric’s ‘brother’ in tow, the ailing Bill can only be healed by a blood sibling, and Sam’s brother’s marriage is about to take place... or will it? The furor raised by the coming out of the two-natured has yet to settle; some people are just not ready to sit down to dinner with a man who turns into a dog. And Sookie herself is still recovering from her last ordeal. She’s definitely improving, physically and mentally, but she’s always going to have some dark moments now. The werewolves tell her that there have been strange and ominous passers-by in the Stackhouse woods; now Sookie is about to come face-to-face with one of her more distant relatives...”

Ever since I caved and read the Sookie series not so long ago, I’ve become a huge fan of the series and I also have been dying to get my hands on Dead in The Family. There has been a lot of expectations about this book and I have to say that I absolutely loved it!
In Dead in The Family we start off not long after the events of the last book, when Sookie suffered torture from a couple of crazed up fey. We find Ms. Stackhouse in midst her recovering period, when we find out that she is officially dating Eric, the Vampire Sheriff we all love to drool over.
There is a lot going on in this novel and the plot definitely grabs your attention. I could not put this book down and I loved the way things got tied up in the end. We get to see some of the old favorites, like Alcide again and even though he seems to be much different than the man we met 8 books ago, he is still a great character to have.
I I read a great review of this book on ALPHA Reader and something Danielle said really got to me when I read this book. Even though I loved seeing Eric and Sookie together and she finally admitting her feelings for him, he doesn’t feel like her Happily Ever After, it seems like he is a transition guy for our dear Sookie, a great one, but still a transition guy.
I think we haven’t met Sookie’s HEA yet and if we have, I’m leaning towards Sam, I’m starting to enjoy the thought of them together more and more. I totally can see them having an amazing relationship together.
All in all, Dead in the Family is an amazing addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series and I really think all the fans out there will be happy with this novel. I was far from disappointed and my appetite for this wonderful books just got heightened with this book.
If you are a Sookie fan, this is a MUST read!
