She is not a clairvoyant but a telepathic receiver.

I love all Charlaine Harris books! Excellent read, all of them

Being a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse books, I try to get my hands on all the short stories. I realized I had missed this one so I borrowed it from the library.

The first part had a long story about Sookie visiting Sam's family in Texas. If we ever needed proof that Sam is boring as a suitor, this is it. I had a hard time finishing it.

Another section contains email/phone call transcripts between Eric & Bill. OK we know that Eric summoned Bill to work for him on different occasions. Do we care about the exact wording? It adds zero value.

Another section was an interview with Allan Ball. WTH? He's not a part of the book world. Let him write his own True Blood book.

Next was an interview with Charlaine Harris - nothing new in here.

And a huge section of the book: an index of all characters and summaries about them.

This book is a good refresher if you have not read the series in awhile and would like to refresh your mind on it before the new book comes out. However, it isn't that necessary to read. The novella about the wedding is a good read and the Bill and Eric conversations are amusing but besides that this book is just a summary of the series and not necessary to read.

This book is completely unreadable!

The novella is very entertaining and at nearly 80 pages, the book is worth getting just for that. The secret Bill-Eric conversations were amusing and the recipes were pretty neat. Life in Bon Temps was mostly summaries of the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

This is a fun waiting-for-the-next-Sookie-Stackhouse-book-to-come-out read for lovers of the Harris series. The short story is fun; if you love trivia, then the rest 200 pages will keep you happy. Otherwise, it's filler, but fun filler

Okay, so I cheated a little. I did not read the couple-hundred page glossary at the end of the book. The plot summaries were particularly helpful in refreshing my memory as to what events took place in which books. Bring on the next one!

80 very enjoyable pages (short story, "Small-Town Wedding").

The rest is filler IMO, if you've already read the novels.
