Grave Surprise (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 2) by Charlaine Harris
While in Memphis, psychic Harper Connelly senses-and finds-two bodies in a grave. One of a man centuries-dead. The other, a girl, recently deceased. Harper's investigation yields another surprise: the next morning, a third body is found-in the very same grave.
Excellent book. I am really enjoying this series and look forward to reading the next right away.
When Harper arrives at a cemetery for a demonstration of her abilities to a college class, everyone is shocked when she discovers the body of an 11 year old girl whom she had been hired to find a year earlier when she disappeared. This leads to suspicion from the police and an investigation which keeps Harper and Tolliver in town.
I have to say that I really enjoyed the story as well as getting to know Harper and Tolliver better. I did not figure out who did it until the very end and while the ending was a bit rushed, it was still en excellent read.
