Dead as a Doornail
Sookie's got just a month, before the next full moon, to find out who wants her brother dead - and to stop the fiend!
Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her life, mostly. She's a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, albeit a bit complicated, and most people have come to terms with her telepathy. The problem is, Sookie wants a quiet life - but things just seem to happen to her and her friends.
Now her brother Jason's eyes are starting to change: he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. She can deal with that, but her normal sisterly concern turns to cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population. She afraid not just because Jason's at risk, but because his new were-brethren suspect Jason may be the shooter.
Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.
The Sookie Stackhouse books are delightful Southern Gothic supernatural mysteries, starring Sookie, the telepathic cocktail waitress, and a cast of increasingly colourful characters, including vampires, werewolves and things that really do go bump in the night.

Review: Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse #5)User Review - Hannah (bookwormstalk) - Goodreads
This one had the most plot lines of any of the books, which I'm not sure I liked as much, but it was still quite enjoyable! It's probably my least favorite of the series so far. Read full review
Review: Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse #5)User Review - Angelica Raine - Goodreads
Argh so frustrating! The beginning and end was a four star but the middle definitely a two star. I was bored in the middle skim reading. I get fed up with everyone fancying Sookie! But I do love her relationship with Eric though. Read full review
