Paranormal. Mystery. Fantasy.

with a couple who are both found dead the next day. To make matters worse, one of Manfred’s regular — and very wealthy — clients dies during a reading.
Manfred returns from Dallas embroiled in scandal and hounded by the press. He turns to Olivia for help; somehow he knows that the mysterious Olivia can get things back to normal. As normal as things get in Midnight...
I love the town of Midnight Texas where all the residents have some sort of mysterious and paranormal edge to them. Each of the characters in this story as engaging and I loved how we were able to learn a bit more about them in this installment. Now, we didn't learn everything about each character in this book but I believe as the series progresses we will (at least I really hope so!).
This book is told in multiple POV's. For some, this may be confusing as the chapters don't state which characters head we are in at the time, but if you have grown to love and understand them you will figure it out easily like I have.
As far as the story goes, this one is filled with the same eccentric characters as the previous book (Midnight Crossroad) but with a few new residents as well. Unfortunately though, they are also thrust into another murder mystery and have to figure out "who dun it" before a citizen of Midnight becomes arrested...
Overall, I absolutely enjoyed this book. Charlaine Harris does a wonderful job at engaging her readers with the stories that she produces and she always writes unique reads. The mysteries that surround the characters leave you wanting more though, but I definitely think waiting to hear about them is worth it. For readers who are unfamiliar with this series, make sure you read it in order. These are not books that can standalone.
