Review of: DEADLOCKED by Charlaine Harris

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

I've read a couple of other people's reviews of DEADLOCKED that were not entirely favorable. For me DEADLOCKED was great! I don't mind the lack of Eric. I confess to being on Team Sam! In my humble opinion, he is the best for Sookie of the current (Eric, Bill, Quinn, Alcide) men in her life. 

Sookie has a birthday in DEADLOCKED (a big one if I remember correctly). Quite a lot goes on during the few weeks that DEADLOCKED covers. Babies are born, one particular character disappears for most of the book, magic items may or may not have been used, there is an engagement! 

I don't want to give away too much. DEADLOCKED, for me, felt like the beginning of the series. A lot is packed into these 327 pages. The last few books have fallen flat for me, DEADLOCKED did not!
