Lily Bard, a cleaning lady and karate student in Shakespeare, Arkansas, would just like to live quietly, but she is forced to turn sleuth again when a man's body is found at the local gym with a barbell across his throat

Blackwell North Amer
Shakespeare, Arkansas, is a small Southern town with plenty of secrets, and Charlaine Harris's Lily Bard is just one more of its residents - albeit one harboring a few secrets of her own - with a desire to live quietly.
Lily keeps to herself, between her job as a cleaning woman for several townspeople and her visits to the gym, where she's a devotee of karate and bodybuilding. These two pursuits seem a bit odd for the petite Southern woman, but as work and play, they keep her focused and balanced.
When a fellow gym member is found dead after a workout with a barbell across his throat, Lily wants to believe it's an accident. But looking at the incident against the background of other recent events in Shakespeare, including a few incidents that appear to be racially motivated, she's afraid it could be a part of something much, much bigger - and much more sinister.

I enjoy the Lily Bard series but found this one a little weak. Jack's character was good, hopefully we see more of him.

I liked her first book because of the strong woman character with ethics. This one, disturbing. She compromised. Instead of Ninja skills, rifles win the battle. I stead of respecting her body she is now plying. Example, almost the first words of her new romantic life was, "Every time I see you, I get a hard on." Then, she 'hid' this man of dubious past ( after he beat her up once) by luring a bunch of drunk redneck men while in her nightgown away from where he was hiding.
Given the sexual assault of her past, I was disappointed in this turn of character.
I will read the next one, and hope for
the best.

Book 2. I liked this one better than the first. Glad she has a romantic interest.
