Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.
From the Publisher:
Love blossoms between Sookie Stackhouse, a cocktail waitress in rural Louisiana who keeps to herself because of her ability to read minds, and Bill, a tall, dark, and handsome vampire with ties to a creepy crowd that may be responsible for the death of one of Sookie's coworkers.

Annotation:
Sookie, a telepathic waitress, is right to think that things will change when Bill the Vampire arrives in town. Unfortunately, as a number of bodies (drained of their blood, of course) start showing up, she begins to suspect that she may have made a mistake falling for Bill.
Author Bio
Charlaine Harris
Charlaine Harris is that rare example of a novelist who owes a large portion of her fan base to television. Harris is a remarkably prolific writer who was first published in 1981, but her popularity increased exponentially in 2008 when HBO launched its series TRUE BLOOD, based on her series of mysteries starring a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse. Harris was born (in 1951) and raised in Tunica, Mississippi, a former cotton town which was later revitalized by casino river boats. She has lived in the south her whole life, in various states and cities, including attending Rhodes College in Memphis, where she saw several of her one-act plays produced. Following an unsuccessful first marriage, Harris was in a rut, bouncing between dead-end jobs, when she met the man who would become her second husband. As a wedding gift, he gave her an electric typewriter and told her to become a full-time writer, a magnanimous gesture which turned out to be a very fruitful decision. Harris had no problem getting her first novel published, and she has not looked back ever since, churning out an average of one book per year since 1981. She has helmed no less than three popular ongoing series--a set of classic whodunits starring a Georgia librarian named Aurora Teagarden; a series of darker mysteries taking place in Shakespeare, Arkansas, featuring a psychologically damaged cleaning lady named Lily Bard; and, of course, the enormously popular "Southern Vampire Mysteries," wherein Sookie Stackhouse negotiates a world inhabited by vampires, werewolves, changelings, and other creatures of the night. Harris lives in Arkansas with her husband and three children.

Expert Review Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris - Book Review
By: Eilonvi Blogcritics.org Reviews

Finally, I picked up Dead Until Dark, the book that True Blood (the TV series) is based on. I was curious to see what’s all the fuss about, and whether the book is all they say the series is. I didn’t expect much of it. Thought it would be extremely corny and silly, considering it’s premised on sexy vampires lurking rural Louisiana, legally recognized (as in having citizenship) by humans. Boy, was I wrong! Not about the corny part, because it can be seriously argued for corniness; but about dismissing it as silly. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I read it in a breeze – and it’s safe to say it’s one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read lately. I feel like hugging the book, if only it were a tree (I sure hope it wasn’t)....read the full review

Praise

Locus
"Overall, this book's intelligent mixture of painful, pleasurable, serious, skeptical, and unexpected moments in a relationship where neither hero nor heroine can merge with the local norm, recalls the best kinds of magical realism. And it's one of the best vampire novels I've read in quite a while." - Faren Miller July 2001
