      Angels and vampires and were-tigers! Oh My!! This trilogy just gets better and better!! This story was amaze balls! I was sad at first that Lemuel was out of town and we only get a bit of him. Then it hit me. This book is called Dayshift and the last one Nightshift. Duh! He will be prominent in the last book. Anyhoo, in this book, Manfred goes out of town to do some face to face readings for clients. He happens to be at the same hotel as Olivia. And there are a couple of mysterious deaths surrou [...]

      This series is one of those kind where it doesn't move all that fast, but you just enjoy hanging out with the characters. It's written in a way that doesn't annoy me when there is a lot of description of them doing basic things. It's like, he grabs some sweet tea and sits in his chair, and I'm all, "yeah, yeah, and then what does he do?" This is so unlike me. Usually if there is a description of a room, I'm like:*Note to self: Time to buy some razors.But, somehow, this town, and these characters [...]

      September 17, 2017: $1.99 on Kindle. While I didn't *love* this, it is definitely worth $2. The first book is $2.99. The last book is the best, in my view, but it's also of course about $10 right now. haha. :P Maybe 3.5 stars? This is sort of a conflicted review. I'm not exactly sure how to review this. Review also found at :The Paranormal Paladin.I liked it. I enjoyed it a little more than Midnight Crossroad (my review on that one is here). However, not enough to round up to 4 stars by any mean [...]

      Book 2 in the midnight Texas trilogyMs. Harris has a way with characters. She can form the simplest of them into these interesting addicting beings. You just want to know them better, want to sit and share an ice tea with them. There was more to this second book, more people, more action, more mystery. She does love a slow build up, luckily so do I. This one has several shockers that amazed and surprised me. I loved it.This book continues with the characters from book one and adds a few more to [...]

      Page turner!!! Book #2 in the Midnight, Texas series did not disappoint and in many ways I enjoyed it more than the first book! Quite a bit of character development and I have to say I love these characters. I have grown very attached to them, especially Mr. Snuggly, Fiji’s marmalade cat. He has a very special place in my heart. This story included a lot more of the supernatural, which was awesome and a crossover character with the Sookie Stackhouse series. The resolution of the murder mystery [...]

      Another almost-good book to follow Midnight Crossroad. I didn’t get to see very much of the characters that truly interested me and had to endure far too much of Manfred Bernardo, who I could care less about. The mystery wasn’t very mysterious and the plot wasn’t nearly as taut as I would have liked. A lot of the action seems to be just going through the motions, with no emotional pull to speak of. Although the reader gets to know Olivia better, it still felt superficial to me because we r [...]

      ‘Day Shift’ is the second book in Charlaine Harris’s new urban fantasy series, ‘Midnight, Texas’ which happens to be a sort of amalgamation of all her other series, featuring various secondary characters from those books. Last year I was so thrilled with Harris’s new series, and counted ‘Midnight, Crossroad’ as one of my favourite books of 2014. This new series features Manfred Bernardo from Harris’s ‘Harper Connelly’ series, Bobo Winthrop from ‘Lily Bard’, a character [...]

      Release Date:May 5, 2015 Genre:Paranormal. Mystery.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 co [...]

      Okay guys, if, like me, you haven’t read the Harper Connelly’ series and Lily Bard you may not get the excitement other may feel about this new series. Honestly, I felt that not having read those previous works, I was kinda missing out on some character history. But have no fear, not reading those other aren’t a must. Oh, and did I mention that there are Bon Temp characters as well?Mix up some across-the-way neighbors and some unrequited love. Then throw in Harris’ trademark murder/myste [...]

I love that book!THE WORLD: Sooome as in the first book :D But if you are not familiar with the first book it is basically normal world plus supernatural creatures being out in the open. Jup, pretty much that is it. Vampires, werewolves, werepanthers, witches, psychics you name it. All are thereARACTERS: So because I already felt in love with the character in the first book it was no surprise that I just stayed on that road. Tho, in this book we focus more on Manfred, Fiji and [...]

      Four stars: A much better sequel with engaging characters in an interesting town.Manfred is headed to Dallas for the weekend to do psychic readings. At his hotel while checking in, he looks up and notices Olivia, his neighbor from Midnight. When he makes a move to acknowledge, she waves him off. Peculiar. Later that night, Manfred sees Olivia having dinner with a couple. The next morning, that same couple is found dead in their hotel room, apparently a murder/suicide. Manfred wonders what Olivia [...]

      A fan of Sookie Stackhouse, I squealed to see a new series from Ms. Harris. I missed the first book in this series and figured I could dive into the second one as a standalone. That could have been a mistake. This series did nothing for me. I couldn't figure out who exactly was the main character. Is it Manfred or Olivia? After about a third of the way through the story, I didn't care. The world building here is confusing. Perhaps it's all been explained in the first book. In this second one, Mi [...]

      Yeahokay not nearly as good as the first book. This is more of a day to day account of what goes on in our "special" little town of witches, vampires, lycanthropes etc. We do get a sort of story made up up a couple of what I'd call co-subplots.Mostly we deal with introing new people to town, dealing with keeping the town's secrets secret while the special people live their special lives with their special needs.Also we set up a connection with another ofthe author's series Sookie Stackhouse whic [...]

      Another slow burn installment to the series, and I say that in a positive way. The main story and the history of the characters in this series unfolds very slowly and I like that. I can understand that some may find the slow revealing of details a little tedious, but I am enjoying it. I want answers, but I am enjoying the slow tease of getting bits and pieces as the series continues. I'll continue on to book three at some point soon.

      Okay, I'm officially loving this series. There's an overlay with the Sookie and Harper Connelly books which I loved. Also I love the perspective of all of the different characters and learning some of their secrets. I can't wait until the next book comes out! I would recommend this series.

      Day Shift is the second book in the Midnight, Texas trilogy, making for a more enjoyable book than the first. Despite being a more engaging tale than book one, this book still failed to deliver the amazing read I’d been hoping to receive.I gave book one a three star rating, despite considering it to be a two-point-five star rating. Book two is a solid three star rating. I considered amending my rating of book one down to two stars, but in the end I opted to keep it at the rounded up rating. Th [...]

This installment of the series gives the reader more insight into what type of paranormal creatures some of the residents are. We learn as we read, the same as in book one. New characters are also introduced which fans of The Southern Vampire Mysteries may be pleased to know."Do you, by any chance, know a waitress in Louisiana?
