Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris
This is the second in the series about Harper Connelly, who can "find dead people" as a result of being struck by lightning as a teen. She and her step-brother Tolliver, who acts as her manager, help people who are searching for missing loved ones, travelling to wherever they are needed.
The story starts with a demonstration that Harper is doing for a university class on the paranormal. She is going through an ancient graveyard and identifying the occupants of various graves, when she unexpectedly comes across one that has two bodies; the second one being the very recent addition of a young girl she unsuccessfully searched for months earlier.
Harper is an engaging protagonist, and the first-persono narrative is pretty open. I've loved all of Charlaine Harris' series, and this one is no exception.
Next up: Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky , another novel with a knitting theme.
Right now I'm working on a shawl for my "second mom" whom we are going to visit in Vancouver next month.
