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.

This is an interesting book. I would place it in a mystery with a paranormal slant. Bobo is the main character and it starts off in the book with Audrey disappearing and then found dead. You will meet a witch, an unusual psychic, a vampire, an unusual minister and some other citizens of Midnight.
You will learn about the right wing extremists group looking for some guns supposedly belong to Bobo’s late grandfather. With missing members of the group and plot twists you will find the killer an unexpected person and the resolution for the mysterious guns surprising!
Read this unusual book because it was very good and you will enjoy it.

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.
