Reading REAL MURDERS hard on the heels of finishing DEADLOCKED, I am overwhelmed by how much Sookie and Aurora have in common. Aurora is definitely a bit more of a firecracker (quicker to take offense or speak her mind), but she shares the sweet practicality that makes Sookie so much fun to read. I had forgotten who the perpetrator was, absolutely chilling. As I recall, Harris did a good job carrying the fall out of these events into book two, as well as keeping Aurora's love life lively... of course, re-reading is the best way to know for sure. Onward to book two!
