Book Review: Shakespeare's Landlord by: Charlaine Harris

Shakespeare's Landlord (Lily Bard Mysteries, Book 1)

This book is about a women who is hiding herself in the small town of Shakespeare, Arkansas. She finds the dead body of her former land lord in a park and calls the police anonymously, not wanting to blow her cover. She soon realizes the suspicions are turning to her and in order to save herself needs to find the murderer.

I have to be honest, I am not much of mystery fan. I know this, but, I do love Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse and Harper Connelly books so I decided to try this one as well. The story line was ok, but the narration and writing of the story seemed impersonal to me at times, and I just could not pick up a flow and get in to it. The book itself is small, only about 214 pages, so it didn't take too long, but actually reading it, it felt like an eternity.

I give it 2/5 stars. ★ ★
