Shakespeare's Christmas by Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Christmas (Lily Bard Mysteries, Book 3) (A Lily Bard Mystery)
Lily heads to her hometown of Bartley for her estranged sister's Christmas Eve wedding. But there is something in the air besides holiday cheer there's murder. And Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister promises to love, honor, and obey a killer.
Another great Lily Bard Mystery. I love Lily. She is so much fun to read and see all the things she just happens to find. I also really like Jack and am glad he is still a part of the story. I think Lily and Jack are great together. They both are kind of prickly at times, they both have some dark in their past, they so cute together! They both kind of back off when things get too real and close and it is so much fun to read.
In this story Lily goes back home for her sisters wedding right before Christmas. Jack turns up in town as well to see Lily and to work on a case of a missing child (who has been missing for 8 years). As I was reading this one I realized a lot of people tend to die in these books. Lily gets herself into bad situations and is always there when something is happening.Lily's family cannot really deal with her since what happened to her so she doesn't go home much.
Lily is worried that her sister's fiance might have the stolen child. Someone had sent a photo to Jack's mentor and since the mentor is now in the hospital the task of solving the case lies with Jack. The photo shows three little girls and one of them is the stolen one. The sister's fiance's daughter is one of the girls.
Lily is really cute trying to help Jack solve the case. She told herself not to ask him for anything, and in return not to do anything without being asked, but she tries to help however she can. The ending usually makes me feel a little bad for Lily. Like poor her she is in this crazy situation, and she really doesn't mean to be usually. I cannot wait to read the next one.
