Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who's passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living - but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent - even if the dead can wait forever. (Goodreads)
Okay, I'm still playing review catch-up, and since I'm road-tripping with my bestie from the 4th grade, I figured I'd post another today :)
And don't forget, the TRAVELERS giveaway is still running if you're interested!
Okay, on to the book!
I had Grave Sight recommended to me by a friend who said it reminded her some of my Coincidences book, and I can totally see the commonalities. A strange ability, a pair of characters who deny their feelings for one another, a dangerous job to complete--this was definitely a fun read :) Harris' writing has always struck me as a little bland, and I often find myself feeling like she's skirting the surface of her character's emotions and situations, to the extent that I don't really feel like I'm there with them and am more just an observer. It's kind of like while watching a movie or program, when you walk into it and find yourself observing the film and what's going on, more than being immersed in the story. It's not bad, just my personal take on how I've experienced her books. I still really enjoyed this one though and will definitely pick up the rest of the series, if mainly because I'm seriously curious about Harper and Tolliver!
Have you had a chance to read this one? Or any of Harris' work?
Also, my publisher is putting together a blog tour for TRAVELERS and asked me to see if anyone wanted to join in. So many of you have been SUCH amazing help with all the rest of the release stuff, so no pressure on this, m'k? Just throwing it out to the universe!
