#1 Shakespeare's Landlord by Charlaine Harris

My Rating: 8 out of 10 stars

This was a good start to the Lily Bard Mystery series. This is Harris's second cozy mystery series, so at first I was afraid it'd be too similar to the Aurora Teagarden series, but that isn't the case at all.

In this first book of the series, we're introduced to Lily Bard, who's moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas, to escape her past. While trying to hide herself among her neighbors, she accidentally witnesses the dumping of a body, and someone is using her own garbage cart to do the deed! Unlike Roe in the Teagarden series, Lily is tough as nails with a scarred background (and body to go along with it). I look forward to reading more of this series.
