The editors of the New York Times bestselling Death's Excellent Vacation bring home a new collection...with a never-before- published Sookie Stackhouse story!

There's nothing like home renovation for finding skeletons in the closet or otherwordly portals in the attic. Now, for any homeowner who's ever wondered, "What's that creaking sound?" or fans of "how to" television who'd like a little un reality mixed in with their reality shows, editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner return with an all-new collection of the paranormal perils of Do-It-Yourself.

Sookie Stackhouse resides in these pages, in a never-before-published story by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. And New York Times bestselling authors Patricia Briggs, James Grady, Heather Graham, Melissa Marr, and nine other outstanding writers have constructed more frightening and funny fixer-upper tales guaranteed to shake foundations and rattle readers' pipes.

Wasn't as interesting or fun as other collections.

I decided to read this book just for the Sookie Stackhouse portion. I did end up reading all of it and I was not really all that impressed.

I must confess, I only read the Sookie Stackhouse story and I thought it was interesting but not as good as her other short stories.

I'm not done yet, but I've read enough to set it "above average". I've not heard of these authors, except one, and I'm pleasantly surprised. The theme is demon-supernatural-ghost mystery/crime stories about home or building renovations, which is a great start to a story right there. I wouldn't read it again either - the fun of short stories is not knowing the ending - but I'd happily read a sequel...

Okay but I didn't get through all the stories. Like the last anthology by Kelner and Harris, I expected more fun and less seriousness. It does have a fun title. Didn't get much fun inside.

Naturally, as in all anthologies, some stories appeal more than others - worth reading

Not my favorite book, in fact if given the choice I wouldn't read it again.
