Présentation de l'éditeur

Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver must face their family’s troubled past in this gripping mystery from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris.

Taking a break from looking for the dead, Harper and Tolliver decide to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But as they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface...
 
To make matters worse, Tolliver learns his 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.

This is a good volume in the Harper Connelly series, and I hope it's not the last. Harper and her beloved Tolliver are down in Texas, trying to make nice with Iona and her husband so they can continue to see Gracie and Mariella, the youngest survivors of that horrible little trailer. And they were called there to resolve any possible mystery about a patriarch's death. They walk into far more than they ever bargained on, into a mess that nearly gets them both killed and eventually leads to resolving the mystery of Cameron's disappearance so many years ago. The killer leaves a trail of bodies, which is usually a very bad idea, and ends up...well, you'd better read the book. And while resolving the patriarch's death (and the death of someone else), Harper and Tolliver discover what happened to Cameron.

Sadly, the greatest tragedy is that Cameron was utterly wrong about two brown-eyed people not being able to have green-eyed children; but the killer think she's all too right and about to discover the secret behind Gracie.

I do hope Harris continues this series, though I also hope she does a little more research into some science facts if she's going to use them as a pivotal point.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 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).

This is the 4th and (according to Charlaine) last book in the Harper Connelly series. It's sad going into `Grave Secret' knowing it will be the last time we journey with this wonderful character. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end.

`Grave Secret' is a bit of a hodge-podge of a novel. On the one hand, Harper and Tolliver are dealing with very serious circumstances in the present as a case Harper is working on takes a curious and dangerous turn. On the other hand, an anonymous call brings up their past as someone claims to have seen Harper's missing sister, Cameron, at a local shopping centre. The book is split between current events, while also backtracking through Harper and Tolliver's troubled childhood and the events surrounding Cameron's disappearance eight years ago.

It is interesting to delve into Harper and Tolliver's past. Harper has confided little bits and pieces about her past in the previous three books, but not to the extent in `Grave Secret'.

Harper and Tolliver are not related by blood; Harper's mother and Tolliver's father found one another and got married right when they were both at the bottom of their respective bottles - both Laurel (Harper's mum) and Matthew (Tolliver's dad) were junkies. They sold drugs from the trailer where Harper and her sister Cameron, and Tolliver and his brother Mark were living with them.

Most of Charlaine's female protagonists have bleak pasts (with the exception of Aurora Teagarden) - but Harper has the worst of them all. Her stepfather would frequently pass her off to the highest bidder in exchange for pills, and she was the primary caregiver when her little sisters were born. Then she was struck by lightening and dealing with the physical side effects as well as the supernatural ones. Harper is a warrior, and Harris's austere description of her and Tolliver's past is chilling, but an amazing indictment of their character. Charlaine Harris seems to be really fascinated by how people's pasts can affect their future and their personalities. She favours female leads who have overcome great personal tragedy, and been made stronger for it. This is very much true of Harper, and at several points in the book she quietly muses about how she and Tolliver ended up `okay' despite their childhoods and genetics. Putting aside her ability to locate dead bodies, Harper is a fascinating character for her past alone. She is a strong, hard-working woman and in `Grave Secret' you really appreciate all that she had to overcome to get that way.

For three books now, Harper has been making mention of her sister's disappearance 8 years ago. Harper has never suspected her sister was anything other than dead, and has been keeping her feelers out for any `buzz' of Cameron's bones ever since she went missing. For three books readers have been as anxious to know Cameron's fate as Harper herself - even more so after a huge foreshadowing in `An Ice Cold Grave'. Fans can be assured that this issue is laid to rest. But be warned - it is a tricky and convoluted explanation that is made somewhat hollow for its loopy plot.

I wasn't terribly satisfied with `Grave Secret'. Knowing that it was the last ever book in the series, I expected great things. But I don't think Charlaine delivered, much as it pains me to admit.
The novels big mystery is hastily wrapped up, and in a manner that I absolutely detest in murder-mysteries; the villain explaining their reasoning and execution of their devious plans while still in the process of completing them. Urgh. Having read her other novels, I can assure you that this is Harris's sloppiest wrap-up ever, and it's a shame because the build-up beforehand was perfectly suspenseful.
I was also disappointed with the progression of Harper's new romance. I love this couple (not going to say who, that would be a MASSIVE spoiler) and I wanted a few more cutesy moments (like we got in `An Ice Cold Grave').
All in all I think `An Ice Cold Grave' was a far more satisfying book and I would have preferred that that be the final book in the Harper Connelly series.

Once again, having read Harris's other books, I can assure you (and warn you) that even when Charlaine is concluding a series, she doesn't like to tie things up neatly, but prefers to leave a certain open-endedness for her characters. That is once again the case with `Harper Connelly'. The open-endedness isn't a frustrating cliff-hanger, just potential for more. And after reading and being disappointed by `Grave Secret', I really, really hope that Harris relents and writes one more, just to redeem the series.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 nice ending to the Harper Connelly series 24 août 2012

I started reading Charlaine Harris's books in other series, and the Harper Connelly books were not my favorite, but Harris is a lively, talented writer, and I did enjoy these too. Harper is a darker heroine than Sookie Stackhouse or Aurora Teagarden or even Lily Bard. She's more dour and bitter, even when she's in love. With this novel we see what's become of the romance between the step-siblings, and we get a closer look at their little sisters and even creepy dad Matthew and older brother Mark. It's one big dysfunctional family as Harper also deals with the fallout from her latest job, when she discovers that a powerful family patriarch may have been murdered and may have left a child behind -- one who stands to inherit a sizable piece of the estate. You'd think with all that going on it would be a page turner, but the story bogs down a little with Tolliver laid up and out of action. Fortunately Mandrake shows up to liven up the place, but even he can't make sense of the too coincidental, too outlandish solution to the final family mystery -- the fate of missing sister Cameron. It all wraps up here, and I have to say that I still enjoyed the series and the wrapping up enough to merit four point six stars.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrible story from a great author - skip it 3 septembre 2013
Par Mielmonster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Sorry to say, this was a boring, depressing book. By the end I did not really care whodunnit or why. The protagonists of this "mystery" novel don't actually solve any crimes. They more or less dodge bullets, get hit by bullets, sit around dingy motels and hospital rooms, bemoan their strange romance and act as a lightening rod (pun intended) to draw the perps out into revealing themselves or to have their deus ex machina friend arrive and solve a mystery for them. Not uplifting. Not fun. Blah. To make it worse, I must have suppressed the memory of having read this book once before, because I paid for it twice.
