Shakespeare, Arkansas, is home to endless back roads, historic buildings, colorful residents—and the occasional murder. It is also home to Lily Bard, the local karate expert / cleaning woman with a particular knack for finding skeletons in closets.

But when the local woman of ill repute is found murdered, being familiar with her dirty laundry could make Lily the next Shakespearean to die.

Anthony Award–winning author Charlaine Harris’ fourth entry from her Lily Bard mystery series is a critically acclaimed gem.

    " Lilly really grew on me :) I love this series, wish there were more books to read... ~ The mystery is nice, but I like the narration and the characters much more! Lilly's thought process is so different from mine and it's always fun to be in her head ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley Anne | 2/18/2014

    " Wow! I really didn't see that ending coming! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 2/16/2014

    " Another good one, builds on the previous 3, so this is definitely a series to read in order. The mystery is a bit more convoluted, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer (Fictitious Musings) | 2/9/2014

    " Not as good as her other novels just a fairly good read with no real excitement. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ani | 2/1/2014

    " I really enjoy the Lily Bard series and this one didn't disappoint. In this installment Lily finds the body of the local loose girl and along with that comes a lot of self examination and surprising revelations about her own nature and healing process. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/25/2014

    " I really like this series and will be sorry to see it end with the next book. I've grown to enjoy Lily's character and the plots involving the residents of Shakespeare. This particular book involved the citizens of Shakespeare more than the others (I thought) and it was even more fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Pratt | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed the Lily Bard series and would have liked for Charlaine Harris to extend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrice | 10/12/2013

    " The mystery itself is pretty interesting and I like how Lily's character develops in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily T | 5/7/2013

    " I really love Lilly Bard! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karissa | 5/5/2013

    " It is great seeing development in the story and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deedra | 3/23/2013

    " Probably my least favorite of the series. I like Lily better when she's cold and hard. She got a little mushy in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadia | 3/23/2013

    " Quick read. The series is getting better. I like that CH always makes her female heroines survivors - I always like "self-rescuing princesses." :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha Fischer | 2/27/2013

    " Totally did not see that one coming! Loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stefani | 2/9/2013

    " Only one more in this lily bard series to go! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylee333 | 11/19/2012

    " I really enjoyed this series by Charlaine Harris so I am sorry to be coming to the end of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patmcclain | 9/27/2012

    " Last book in this series, so far. Satisfying romance and mystery. I didn't sneak to the back of the bookto see whodunit so was quite surprised. Great author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 6/23/2012

    " Must confess to quite enjoying Charlaine Harris's mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 3/30/2012

    " #4 in Lily Bard series. Love this series, but this was my least favorite. A promiscuous woman, Deedra is found dead in her car. She is left naked so that the nature of her death will be assumed foul play caused by one of her boyfriends. The plot seemed implausible to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 12/16/2011

    " Again, Charlaine Harris without the vampires! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabel Mansfield | 7/6/2011

    " Very sad to be at the end of this story I want more of Lilly & Jack "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 7/2/2011

    " I am really enjoying the Lily Bard series. I missed the Christmas one, so I felt a little lost in reading this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carissa | 6/20/2011

    " A nice, even read. Good plot, strong characters, not quite as dark as the two previous Lily Bard books. The mystery was well written and left room to show some interesting character development. A good rainy-day read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lulu | 6/16/2011

    " Another great book in this series. I enjoy watching Lily grow as a person by letting go of her past and grabbing her future.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefani | 6/15/2011

    " Only one more in this lily bard series to go! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 5/22/2011

    " Set down South, Lily is a housecleaner with a bucket load of personal issues. She finds a body and of course is one of the prime suspects. None of the characters are particularly likeable. Read it one afternoon though so it does hold one's interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " well done if a bit violent-at a remove "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 3/26/2011

    " Totally did not see that one coming! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 3/8/2011

    " Love it. Love Lily Bard. Love her guy. Love Charlaine Harris! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 3/2/2011

    " I really loved this book. It had a great surprise ending, although I was kind of piecing it together as I went along. I had an idea who the killer was, but it just didn't make sense. Well done Charlaine! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillybean | 1/23/2011

    " Oh no . . . only one more book to go in the series! I think I'm hooked--especially on how Lily seems to overcome her past adversity even more in each book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sho | 1/21/2011

    " As a fan of Charlaine Harris This was one series I haven't updated. I am glad I had a chance to read more. I like that Lily has become more open and at the same time finding herself a bit lost because of that. The mystery was interesting, too. Nice fast easy listening! "
