OH MY GOD!!! Harper Connelly book 4: Grave Secret: tentative date: October!!!

I love the Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris.
They're not G-rated. But I may do posts on them at some point.
I love Tolliver. Harper's step-brother/boyfriend.
I'm hoping that in this book she finds her sister although I think that the series would be over if she does.
I just randomly checked her page this morn-... okay this afternoon but I've only been up three hours so it's morning to me.
I'm so excited, but I'll be at Potsdam then... Hopefully. Maybe... It's possible..
A good new book this year. now I think I'll check out Christine Feehan's page and look for new books in the Dark series and the Drake sisters... Although I think the publish date for the last Drake sisters novel is this July. I won't preorder that one. Wal-Mart will have it and buying it there will save me a few bucks shipping.

I love her Sookie Stackhouse series but I haven't tried this one yet.

I tried three of the Stackhouse series. But 2-5 so didn't make a lot of sense but I've heard the tv show they made of it is really good.
You should check these out. I think Grave Surprise is the first one but I could be wrong.

WOW!!! I just checked out Charlaine Harris' site and tried to find any info on any plans for the Harper Connelly series, book 4 specifically--and I couldn't find any, so I googled and stumbled upon your page! I'm so excited about that!!! October! Wow...I'm excited! I have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse series and am waiting for the May release of the newest addition. I honestly like the Harper Connelly series better though. The show is great (True Blood) :)

I like the Harper books but I don't think they've gotten as good a reception as the Sookie books. Seems like I remember reading the 4th will be the last...? (I'm not positive about that, though.)

I have to admit to being kind of squigged out about some of the brother-sister stuff in the last one.

Breezey375 said...

I have to say the vampire series really annoyed me.
Leeney- Thank you for taking the time to comment. I only found it by looking at the tiny paragraph about the books this year it just said. "Harper Connelly Grace Secret October"....

Rurality- I sure hope not! I love Harper and her ability. I also wasn't surprised by the hookup. She was always careful to say "I call him my brother but he's only my step brother we meet when we were teenagers yadda yadda yadda".

Leeny said...

No problem! I always like to be informed! ;D

The series is overly sexual--too sexual for my taste. It's almost pornographic! It's interesting how Charlaine Harris can just crank these books out like there is no tomorrow--kudos to her! I honestly think that the series should retire sometime soon, maybe after the 10th--she'll say goodbye to that series. lol.

There should be a tv show series for the Harper Connelly series! I'd love to see who snags the roles of Harper and Tolliver!

Breezey375 said...

I didn't like the sex in the first one. I'm pretty good with plots s I figured the was a Tolliver/Harper hookup in the near future.
Ten books would be a good number!
I can't think of anyone! But it would be interesting to see!

Leeny said...

I'm the same way! I was merely waiting on when they finally give in. lol. Now that it happened though, I wonder what changes there'll be...

Hm--anyway! The 2nd season of True Blood returns in the summer, I think. It would be interesting to see how long the show will run for, I mean--there are 9 books so far! The first season only covered the 1st...o.o lol That's going to be insane!

I can't think of any actors/actresses that can portray Harper and Tolliver. shrug*

Breezey375 said...

Yeah, she wasn't very subtle about it coming was she? I wonder too.

ARG!!! I still haven't seen it. Basic cable. Blah!

Well seeing as how neither of us can come up with any it's a good thing we're not in charge of casting isn't it?

I just finished book 3 and I think Haper is going to be pregnant in book 4....because as she was running from the 'bad' guy in the end she was throwing up and reflected on how she had also gotten sick the day she first found the bodies. Morning sickness anyone? And, it would be too soon to be Tolliver's.
It would be the cop's baby (from the first book.)

Breezey375 said...

No way. If Harper were to get preggers I can't see it being the cop's baby. He's out of the story now. The only thing I would say for sure would be that if it is the last book they're going to find the sister.

Breezey375 said...

Also you have to look at more than the oh she got sick must be morning sickness, with the bodies she had just seen something that would make anyone ill and as far as when she was running away I don't know what type of pain you've ever dealt with but mix it with pain killers and a lot of running and it could make you sick.
I mean you could be right but I think that would trash the Tolliver/Harper relationship and I can't see the author doing that.

I could see the author trashing Tolliver and Harper's relationship. She broke up Sookie and Bill. Couples in a happy relationship never make for an exciting story.

I stand by the 'throwing up' as morning sickness. Not from the injuries or dead bodies because as she was running to the lake cottage Haper had a commentary in her head linking the two episodes of sickness, pondering what was wrong with her (obviously beyond her physical problems that she was very aware of).

Breezey375 said...

She breaks them up I won't read another book by her. She spends three books building up a relationship to knock the girl up by someone else? Ick. Also I HATED the cop. I don't know why I just did.

I gotta say I strongly dislike the Sookie books, and as such only read a few.

Also I like books about happy couples. And you can have drama etc without knocking someone up from what was basically a one night stand.

I love both series - Harper's and Sookie's.
Sookie's series!
I didn't like her and Bill together. I would much rather her be with Eric. He show passsion towards her, Bill never did. And all the lies that Bill told her.

Harper's series!
I am not sure what will happen with her and tolliver. I like them as a couple. I hope that it can stay that way but it may not.

I can't wait for the new books of both of these series.

Breezey375 said...

Anon- I liked Eric better too,

There is no way Harper's pregnant. Or at least very slim. I've read the first chapter (posted on author's website) and their Aunt Iona is pregnant I think Tolliver/Harper is gonna be just fine.

Approvingly your article helped me altogether much in my college assignment. Hats incorrect to you post, will look ahead in behalf of more cognate articles without delay as its anecdote of my pet issue to read.
