Summary from Goodreads: From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale - populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it...
Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth...
Review: I'm a big fan of Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse series. I thought I would be a big fan of this Midnight series... but I'm not. The writing was Harris' normal style. Well worded and and full of depth. It was the story that fell flat for me. It started off really slow and didn't keep me involved the whole time. I think people who like contemporary fiction will like this book more than paranormal fans.
