    I m not sure what I think of our heroine, Lily Bard, yet On the one hand, she has survived unbelievable trauma, so I like her ability to simply get up in the morning On the other hand, she is like a lot of Charlaine Harris s females just a bit bitchy for no reason Just like Sookie, and Fiji from the last series, Lily gets offended over everything and is rude to people who really don t deserve it I guess we have to give her a pass because of her past, but it seems like a pattern with the females in these series In real life, I have rarely met any women who are so over sensitive and rude The ones I have met, I have generally avoided Life s too short to freak out over stupid, imaginary offenses all the time yoga dog is right Tell us , wise one.I still liked the book, and Lily may grow on me, even though she has a perm Lily, they also called to tell you that they want their hair back.Lily witnesses someone dumping a dead body As a maid, she is the p...

    Being a fan of Harris Sookie Stackhouse series and having just finished reading the first book in her Harper Connelly series, Grave Sight, I was very pleasantly surprised with this book Expecting fluff, I was very impressed with this book, which, while being a lot darker than her other books, had so much depth and character than I was expecting I love the main character, Lily Bard, who after living through a very traumatic past, which scarred her both physically and emotionally, is trying to live a very quiet, simple life in Shakespeare, working as a cleaning lady and keeping to herself When she witnesses the disposal of a body late one night while out walking, her nice quiet life becomes quite a bit complicated I was very impressed with this book and the depth of the main character The mystery that Lily faced was fun to try to solve along with...

    There s a nice little comforting feel I get when I enter one of Charlaine Harris worlds I know that her characters will be realistic even her paranormal characters have a touch of the mundane I know I will be in a nice, down home, small town world.This down home comfort feel is most evident in her Lily Bard series Shakespeare s Landlord seems to be a novel about ordinary people living their ordinary lives in a small, ordinary town Well, at least until someone gets murdered.Somehow between the first and second chapter, I was sucked into this world I just could not put the book down What better way to give insight into a world than by using a cleaning lady as a main character This cleaning lady knows everyone s secrets I found it fascinating that the main character Lily could learn so much about her clients without reall...

    I read this book in order to count it for Arkansas in my US state challenge I enjoyed it and give it 4 out of 5 stars The author uses a familiar formula A private citizen, in this case, Lily Bard, cleaning lady, is suspected of murder and decides to solve the murder herself The subtitle is Introducing Amateur Sleuth Lily Bard Lily Bard runs a 1 woman cleaning errand service in the small town of Magnolia, Arkansas She witnesses something suspicious, and discovers a dead body She doesn t call the police She calls the police chief anonymously.This is a traditional mystery, where th...

    When I read Dead Until Dark and fell madly in love I began scouring the internet for other books by Charlaine Harris I found a couple of mystery series she d written This is the first book in her Lily Bard series In some ways, these books are amongst my favorites They re darker than her Sookie Stackhouse books but explore her the...

    I really enjoyed this little mystery, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas Lily Bard, the community cleaning lady, has chosen this small town on a whim because of her last name It seems like the perfect sleepy little community in which to avoid her traumatic past and live a quiet life.Harris excels at portraying small town life, using ordinary people as characters Lily is not someone that most people pay a lot of attention to as a cleaning lady, she tends to blend into the background The only place where she stands out is in her karate dojo, where she excels She reminded me of Harris other small town character, Sookie Stackhouse, who is often overlooked because she is just a bar maid, but has unknown talents telepathy Lily has a skill that many women have she pays attention to detail and she can analyze those details to come to accurate conclusions Not the most exciting myster...

    This is not my favorite Charlaine Harris novel However, it is a good and quick read if your looking for something light and are a fan of the author as I am I really wanted to love this one because I really love the Sookie Stackhouse series AND the Harper Connelly series But this one was just lacking a bit I couldn t really connect with the heroine, Lily She is drab and dark And while I can appreciate WHY she is the way she is, there was just a disconnect there Anyway, I will continue the series...

    Shakespeare s Landlord is really short a combination of this and the shortcomings in Harris s writing makes the mystery in this particularly boring and without climax Lily Bard, on the other hand, is a powerfully written character Her past is haunting and scary and her convictions and personality that emerge within this story are actually heartbreaking Lily Bard spoilerz is a past victim of random acts of sexual and other physical violence Her particular story might not be extremely common, but the side effects good and bad that become evident in her relations with others probably resonate with many victims of abuse Throughout this book, Lily never backs down from or caves in to male oppression or power unlike so many oth...

    A few years ago I was twiddling my thumbs, waiting for the new Sookie Stackhouse book to come out, when I decided to see what else Charlaine Harris had written Turned out she d written a lot of other books, including three other mystery series featuring similarly intrepid heroines My eye immediately settled on the Lily Bard series of mysteries also known as the Shakespeare mysteries because main character Lily lives in the small town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, and because each book has the word Shakespeare in the title Up until recently all five of the Lily Bard mysteries were out of print, but then Berkeley Prime Crime re released the entire series in very attractive mass market editions My mom gave me the first one, SHAKESPEARE S LANDLORD, as a Christmas present and I started tracking down the other four before I was even twenty pages in A big fan of the Sookie books, I was instantly drawn to this darker, less humorous but no less compelling series Lily Bard isn t precisely in hiding, but she s flying as far below the radar as is humanly possible After chopping her hair off, toning her body into lean, mean fighting machine, and then hiding it all under the baggiest and blandest of clothes, Lily decides to settle in the sleepy, little town of Shakespeare, Arkansas in an attempt to disappear She chose Shakespeare at random off the map because she thought it was rather poetic given her last name During the day Lily works as a cleaning lady, while a...

    3.5 Stars Shakespeare s Landlord is a really good start to what I hope will be a fun, addictive mystery series It has all the elements to be so, with a great heroine and supporting cast, and a cosy town where they all live weaving in and out of each others lives Lily Bard has a dark past that Harris only hints at, by the end of the book I still really didn t know what had happened to Lily to make her run and set up home in a small town like Shakespeare But she s managed to create a little niche for herself by starting a cleaning business and keeping herself to herself That s the way she likes it.But one night, while out for a walk, she discovers a body in the local park Instead of phoning the police Lily heads back home and calls the police anonymously to let them know She really didn t want the police digging around in her pastFrom here on things get a little out of control and Lily s well controlled private life suddenly begins to spiral She has conversations with her neighbours in the week surrounding the murder than she has done for the few years she s been living in the town Which is saying a lot since she cleans most of their homes One of Lily s favourite past times is working out at the gym and her martial arts class, which she never misses But as her organised life slips so does her relationships ...
