Shakespeare's Landlord (Lily Bard Series #1)

Shakespeare's Landlord (Lily Bard Series #1) - This was a light easy to read mystery. It took me about 1 chapter to get pulled in, but once I did I read it straight through. Harris is great with characters, developing them and making the reader fall in love with them. Lily Bard is the lead character in this mystery, if you have read Harris' other series, she is unlike Harper and Sookie. Lily has a dark past and is trying to move on. She is self sufficient and not optimistic about the nature of people. Similar to Sookie and Harper, Lily is a loner. I like Lily and am looking forward to how her character will progress. Harris surprised me with this story, I did not have the mystery solved before the end, which was nice. Harris writes common every day details of life well - shopping, cleaning, cookie, working out - she writes them and they seem real. After I read this book I felt like cleanimg my house, cooking dinner and then working out. I plan on reading the next in the series.
