Présentation de l'éditeur

New in the series from New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver take a break from looking for the dead to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But, as always happens when they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface.

To make matters worse, Tolliver learns from his older brother that their father is out of jail and trying to reestablish contact with other family members. Tolliver wants no part of the man- but he may not have a choice in the matter.

Soon, family secrets ensnare them both, as Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, so many years before.

And what she finds out will change her world forever.

Ce quatrième tome de la série des Connelly Harper était sympa, sans plus.

Cette-fois, Harper est invitée à découvrir la cause de la mort de R. Joyce, le patriarch de la famille Joyce. Or, non seulement elle découvre que sa mort est suspecte, mais encore que la jeune femme qui l'assistait au quotidien est morte en couches - ce qui était un fait totalement inconnu. Voici donc la première page du livre, je ne trahis donc strictement aucun élément du l'intrigue.

L'évolution de l'enquête qui s'ensuit est assez secondaire et plutôt une excuse pour mettre en avant la vie personnelle et les difficultés familiales de Harper et Tolliver.
C'est un peu dommage, car au fond cela reste un livre policier, avec des meurtres, des tentatives de meurtres, un coupable à découvrir mais le tout est un peu noyé sous des aspects extérieurs à l'enquête. Le "don" de Harper semble également passer au second plan, bien qu'il se révèle fort utile.
Enfin, même le style de Ch. Harris (que j'adore) allège un peu moins que d'habitude l'histoire.

Bref, un tome de passage, moins bien que les trois précédents.

Grave secret est le dernier tome d'une série de 4 livres relatant les aventures de Harper Connelly, une excellente série de Charlaine Harrys.
Le suspens est garanti.. jusqu'aux dernières pages, l'intrigue est totale.
Je viens de le terminer. Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de suite à lire!

J'avais lu ce livre à sa sortie, j'avais apprécié cette collection. Charlaine Harris est toujours aussi agréable à lire. Bien.

Babies and bullets 28 octobre 2009
Par E. A Solinas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If this book isn't the end of the Harper Connelly series, it certainly feels like it.

"Grave Secret" is a pretty solid conclusion to Charlaine Harris' short but sweet series about a woman able to sense the dearly departed. Mysteries are solved, plot threads are wrapped up, relatives are dealt with, and dirty little secrets are unveiled -- and while one pivotal secret is rather far-fetched, it handles all the loose threads deftly while keeping the door open for more possible stories about Harper and Tolliver.

After doing a job for the wealthy Joyce family, Harper and Tolliver face their toughest challenge yet: telling super-rigid Aunt Iona, Uncle Hank and their younger half-sisters that they're a couple. It doesn't help that this town is also where they lived as the abused blended family of neglectful junkies, and where Harper's beloved sister Cameron mysteriously vanished. As if their family relations weren't strained enough, Tolliver's creepy dad Matthew appears in town, claiming he wants to mend fences.

At the same time, Harper has been hired by the Joyces to find a missing baby that may be their grandfather's secret love child -- but someone is determined to keep her from finding it. People around her are getting injured, kidnapped and murdered -- even Tolliver has been shot. And as Harper tries to unravel the mysteries from years ago, she realizes that the Joyce family has a long-ago link to her own...

It's fairly obvious in "Grave Secret" that Charlaine Harris is ending the Harper Connelly series, although she leaves the door open for future adventures (if and when she ever wants to continue). She wraps up overhanging mysteries (Cameron's murder), deals with the rifts within the Lang/Connelly family, and puts the finishing polish on Harper and Tolliver's romantic subplot. It's a satisfying finale, if a somewhat bittersweet one.

And as in the previous books, Harris' down-to-earth prose remains warm and slightly humorous, but there's a darker, gruesome edge -- long-ago deaths, gory killings (some of them Harper's friends), and the overhanging, spooky presence of the dead. The biggest flaw is that a few of the plot twists is a bit on the far-fetched side (seriously, NOBODY noticed that except one lone person?), but otherwise it's a clever tangle of interconnected clues and lies.

Harper and Tolliver are already lovers, but Harris goes out of her way to smooth out whatever wrinkles are still left between them -- including the grossed-out reaction that almost everybody has when they hear that the stepsiblings are dating. Well, it is a little weird. They also get some nice emotional closure relating to their scummy parents and more "normal" siblings (both living and dead), and Harris reveals a lot more about their hellish childhood.

And Harris does a good job sketching out seemingly cliched characters like Aunt Iona and Uncle Hank, who initially act like sour hyper-religious party-poopers, but who eventually are shown to have good hearts. The flipside is the creepy Matthew, who spouts a lot of "rehab therapy" jargon but still obviously has a lot of hatred.

"Grave Secret" is a solid ending to Charlaine Harris's supernatural mystery series, and it ties together the various plot threads pretty neatly. Enjoyable if a bit far-fetched at times.

Mystery Why This Series DId Not Take Off ? 28 octobre 2009
Par ChefCheyanne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Now better known for her Sookie Stackhouse series, this series was my first introdution to this authors' work. Having read all her writings, I don't know why this series did not take off. It seems so much deeper and had a melancholy richness that her other stories do not. Considering how deeply skilled this author is, from the silly cozy mysteries to the philosphical quandry of this series--I cannot pass up a book with her name on it. All of her books are keepers, but this series has a special place on my bookshelf. The common theme of her stories is how women cope when undreamed of changes shatter an old life and demand new groundrules. Plus the various "helpers" all come with their own set of challenges. Start at the beginning of this series and allow yourself a place in Harpers' world. Notice how the rhythm of the writing is different--almost slower--and the problems far more tragic and pointed. Be very careful--as is wise Harper--as to who you let get close.

A hasty wrap-up 28 octobre 2009
Par Grace G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
There are two main mysteries going in the concluding volume of the Harper series. One of them's pretty well-done, and the other seems like an afterthought. But by the end of the book, there aren't any lingering questions that would merit another book in the series, so there's that.

The story moves along at a fair clip, and unfortunately relies on contrivance a lot to either prolong suspense or force resolution. At times, Harper and her brother/lover/whatever (and it's pretty weird that they haven't settled THAT bit of vocabulary) make mindblowingly stupid choices to further the plot. There's a lot of peppering description with "she saw someone suspicious out of the corner of her eye, but didn't bother to look closer" and a couple of instances when you wonder if Harper and her brother/lover/whatever have learned anything about caution from their previous run-ins with people who want them dead. These protagonists are not particularly smart, is what I'm saying.

The previous book in the series was far creepier and more suspenseful, and actually had me reading late into the night. This one takes a more Dan Brown route, building up a confrontation only to blow it within a few paragraphs. Read it to wrap up the series, there's nothing wrong with most of the story elements. But it's not as smoothly crafted as I think it could have been, with more time and editing.

Love the series 31 octobre 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is the final installment in Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly series. It's the story of a young woman who, having been struck by lightening as a teenager, is able to sense the dead. In the presence of a dead human body, she can "see" the final few moments of their lives and determine the cause of death. Following a difficult and abusive childhood and adolescence, she travels the country with her stepbrother, contracting out to law enforcement and private individuals to locate the lost deceased, or to determine the cause of death.

I love this series for its bravery in tackling certain serious subject matter - child abuse and neglect, making one's own way in the world despite tragic circumstances - and I love the characters, who are portrayed in an immensely interesting and realistic way. I enjoyed the first installment (Grave Sight), loved the second (Grave Surprise) and was blown away by the complex and riveting third installment (An Ice Cold Grave). I enjoyed this fourth and final installment too, but I felt the plot relied a bit too heavily on contrivance and convenience. As the last book in the series, I know certain threads needed to be tied up, but this book could perhaps have used some additional editing, and it didn't flow as organically as other books in the series. [Obviously I can't speculate on the whys, but it seems like Ms. Harris must have a lot of demands on her time these days with the success of Sookie Stackhouse and True Blood. If that's so, then I for one thank her for making time for this last Harper Connelly book. I couldn't have stood not knowing how things turned for Harper. :)]

But despite the somewhat contrived plot, I still thought it was great, and I do recommend it (but read the rest of the series first, and read it in order or you won't get the full effect). I feel it is a satisfying end to the series, and I feel it was the right end to the series. I have always thought that one of Charlaine Harris's great strengths is writing realistic characters with human flaws, with all the emotional, intellectual and moral gray areas that most of us have. She is not afraid to tackle tough material, and she wisely lets us know in all of her stories that there cannot always be a happy ending for everyone - but you have to live the best life you can anyway, and work at creating your happiness. That maybe sounds a little touchy feely, so let me assure you that the Harper Connelly series is just plain interesting and I think many people would be curious to read it and see how it plays out. In fact, I described the books to a friend of mine the other day, and she immediately rushed out to the library to see if she could find the first book in the series.

Mediocre conclusion to a very good series 23 novembre 2010
Par loomis13 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I really like this series and (like many other readers) was a little surprised that this was the end. The main plots throughout the series all came together and were resolved a little too quickly & neatly. I actually felt like Cameron's ending (the missing sister) was pretty much a sell-out. It's like Harris went 100% for the surprise, without considering just how far-fetched it really was. The confession seemed to come out of nowhere, with very little prompting from anyone. And is it just me, or shouldn't Harper have found the body instead - since that's what this series is all about...? Which, incidentally, she reads graves only once in this book which is just a lame way to end a series primarily focused on her talent.
The Harper/Tolliver romance was reduced to casual acts of fellatio and disgusted reactions from the people around them [when finding out that "brother & sister" are in love]. Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to sexual acts in books, I just felt that their relationship became shallow and pathetic (Harper just moaning about how much she depends on Tolliver). Unfortunately I found myself not minding if Harper & Manuel got together just to read about some real emotions & excitement. Overall, this book was entertaining but definitely disappointing if you are a fan of the series.
Shame on you Charlaine, for rushing an ending to this series to focus on selling filler/compilation Sookie Stackhouse books instead of any kind of satisfying novel in this or any other of your series (including Sookie).
