So here is my book for this weeks Wishlist Wednesday:
 
 
 
Goodreads Synopsis:
 
 Now best known for her New York Times-bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels, Charlaine Harris garnered an unusual degree of acclaim with her first novel -- the story of a murder that embroils a small-town reporter in a mystery that hits close to home.

Catherine Linton came home to Lowfield, Mississippi convinced that the untimely deaths of her parents in a car accident was no accident -- but nobody believed her. So she stayed, taking a job at the local paper, to try to both convince the sheriff that she was right-and maybe convince herself she was wrong. After all, her father had been the town doctor, loved (she always thought) by all. To think he was killed was to think that one of her friends or neighbors has harbored some deep resentment toward him. Then she finds the dead body of the women who had been her father's nurse for many years. Obviously murdered. Now Catherine knows that she was not wrong about her parent's death. Someone in Lowfield has a terrible secret, a secret worth killing for. Not once, not twice, but -- when another body is found -- three times. And the killer won't hesitate to add more victims to the list, as Catherine gets closer and closer to the truth.

 
 I love Charlaine Harris, her books have always rated highly with me. My favourite series would be the Southern Vampire series (Sookie Stackhouse). I have most of her books on my bookcase or kindle but I'm missing this one.  I thought this book sounded good with a mix of mystery and murder.  I hope I manage to get a copy soon so I can add to my Charlaine Harris collection :)
