Summary: The last installment of the Southern Vampire series finds Sookie Stackhouse in one last supernatural pickle. Perpetually unlucky Sookie is working at Merlotte's bar when her former friend and co-waitress Arlene walks in the door. As Arlene had previously been in jail for arranging to have Sookie crucified, this is not a good thing. Arlene's arrival triggers a series of events that has Sookie arrested for murder and her supernatural friends rushing to her side to help clear her name.
What I Liked: I've got a soft spot for Sookie, even though she makes terrible life choices and has a strange addiction to Walmart, so my feelings toward the book may be a little biased. "Dead Ever After" was a nice attempt to wrap up a long-running series. A bunch of old characters made cameo appearances, and the author tried to write a legit murder mystery.
Was it genius? No. Was it a nice, easy summer read? Absolutely.
What Drove Me Nuts: The plot was forced, the story line was predictable and the end didn't really resolve anything. When a series ends, I want to know that it's over. This ending left too many possibilities open.
Rating: It was OK. If you've read the rest of the series, check it out. If you haven't, skip it.
