Charlaine Harris-- "Grave Secret" Harper Connelly series

Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver take a break from looking for the dead to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But, as always happens when they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface...
To make matters worse, Tolliver learns from his older brother that their father is out of jail and trying to reestablish contact with other family members. Tolliver wants nothing to do with the man--but he may not have a choice in the matter.
So, family secrets ensnare them both, as Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, so many years before. And what she finds out will change her world forever.....

***I love Charlaine Harris, her books are quick easy reads, with characters you can love. Her mysteries are simply laid out, but you still can't guess who it is till the end. Harper and Tolliver's life has never been simple, but they have managed to make a life for themselves...together. In this story, they finally have all the answers to their sisters disappearance and the identity of the little sister they had raised. A few people die along the way, and some actually deserve it. I read this book in one afternoon. If you have read the Sookie Stackhouse or Lilly Bard series, you will love Harper Connelly. Start at the beginning and you won't be disappointed.
