Shakespeare's Counselor is the fifth Lily bard book and a really good read. As usual there is a murder and Lily gets dragged into solving it purely by circumstance.
Lily reluctantly joins a support group for rape victims as she is having trouble dealing with her past and despite herself actually seems to benefit from the group. Unfortunately, before too long somebody dies and Lily gets dragged into solving the case. There are lots of twists and turns and enough to keep you guessing right up to the end when the murderer is revealed.
Her relationship with Jack also deepens and the two seem to grow to trust each other on a deeper level. Lily also starts working for Jacks PI firm, partly because her cleaning business is slightly flagging and partly because she seems to end up solving crimes all the time anyway so why not get paid for it.
This is most likely the last Lily novel as Charlaine Harris is busy on other projects! I hope she revisits her in the future.
If you liked the others then you will like this one and if you haven't read them you should check them out. Use Amazons link to the series. They are good airplane or holiday books as they are short and entertaining.
