Publisher Description

Take a trip to the small Texas town where only outsiders fit in with the first novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’ paranormal mystery series.

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 the Davy highway. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There’s a pawnshop with three residents. One is seen only at night. There’s a diner, but people stopping there tend not to linger. There’s a newcomer, Manfred Bernardo, who just wants to work hard and blend in. But Manfred has secrets of his own...

A fine book for a long quiet day

I’ve read Charlaine Harris before (her Southern Vampire Mysteries), so when this popped up as a suggestion, I was intrigued, especially when I saw that they’ve made a TV series of the work. Overall, I was pleased by the story and the characters, both of which reminded me of what Stephen King does with small towns (Castle Rock, Derry, etc.). Some of the other reviews complained about the slow pace, but I prefer to think of it as “deliberate.” Ms. Harris is setting up her characters for the long haul and not every secret has been revealed yet. Anyway, I will probably be buying the sequel tonight.

Midnight Crossroad

Looking forward to the world of Midnight continuing! Story and characters got better as the book progressed and I ended the read with a smile.

Disappointed

The characters seemed really underdeveloped. I watched the TV series first, so that helped some. Had I read the book first I probably wouldn’t have finished it.
