Amateur sleuth, cleaning lady, and martial arts expert Lily Bard searches for a killer after she stumbles upon the body of Deedra Dean, the promiscuous tramp of Shakespeare, Arkansas, in her car on a deserted back road.

McMillan Palgrave
Welcome back to Shakespeare - a charming Arkansas town with endless back roads, an eclectic mix of residents, and a dollop of noir. Featuring cleaning woman/karate expert Lily Bard, Charlaine Harris's series puts a unique spin on the traditional cozy to create mysteries that "work on every level. The writing and plotting are first rate [and] Lily is appealing in her own prickly way" --Washington Times

In the latest installment, Lily discovers lifelong Shakespeare resident Deedra Dean murdered inside a car parked in a woodsy area outside town. Determined not to get involved, Lily wants to leave the police work to Sheriff Marta Schuster and her team of deputies, and concentrate on cleaning, high kicks, and her boyfriend Jack's impending visit. But when Deedra's notoriously promiscuous lifestyle provides an extensive list of suspects but very few clues, Lily has no choice but to resume the roll of amateur detective and join the investigation.

In this fourth book in Charlaine Harris's highly acclaimed and darkly compelling series, Lily Bard delivers a hard-hitting mix of Southern charm and street smarts, a combination so alluring that long-time readers and newcomers will be dying to visit Shakespeare again.

Very entertaining, if a bit too short. I'm loving the Lily Bard series from Charlaine Harris!

Another great read! I really enjoyed the other books in this series, and this one didn't disappoint me. It was nice to see Lily developing more as a character.

The fourth Lily Bard Mystery is probably the weakest of the bunch. The mystery itself was interesting, but the antagonist let us in on the secret far too easily and with no good reason. I'm sorry, but if I committed a crime, I wouldn't ask people, "Hey, would you let me know if you find anything in the victim's possessions which implicates me?" Lily is still a fascinating character and Charlaine Harris' writing is brisk and lively as always.
