Synopsis: (From Amazon)
When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn’t just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It’s Eric the vampire—but now he’s a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.
As far as mysteries go, I absolutely loved the various layers and depth to this one. We weren’t just faced with something supernatural, but also something that messed very heavily with humans.
Eric got a more thorough looking at, and it’s hard not to like him the more you get to know him. In many ways, I like him with Sookie better than any of the other contenders for her affections. Sookie is beginning to change and become a more experienced person and less of an innocent dunce, and it’s quite a nice, welcome change.
This book is very emotionally driven, and I think that’s likely what makes it so riveting and relatable, since most have felt spurned before, though I would like to believe not many would go to the lengths some do in this novel.
