Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Midnight, Texas. It's a quiet little town, perched at the junction between Davy Road and Witch Light Road, and it's easy to miss. With its boarded-up windows, single traffic light, and sleepy air, there's nothing special about Midnight...which is exactly how the residents like it.

So when the news comes that a new owner plans to renovate the run-down, abandoned old hotel in town, it's not met with pleasure. Who would want to come to Midnight, with its handful of shops, the Home Cookin diner, and quiet residents - and why? But there are bigger problems in the air.

When Manfred Bernado, the newest resident in town, is swept up in a deadly investigation, suddenly the hotel and its residents are the least of the town's concern. The police, lawyers, and journalists are all headed to Midnight, and it's the worst possible moment....

Midnight 2

Another brilliant tale and adventure of the fascinating world of the Midnight residents. My only criticism is that you must read Midnight Texas One to be able to follow the characters properly. Loved every line.

Awful narration - can't finish the book!

What disappointed you about Day Shift?

I simply can't comment on the story in any way as the dreadful narration prevented me from getting into the book.

What didn’t you like about Susan Bennett’s performance?

Annoying, with really bad accents.

After the long wait I was not disappointed!!!

I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris, I have read all her series including Sookie Stackhouse,the Shakespere series and the Grave series. In the The Midnight series Charlaine brings all the memorable characters from these series and sets them up with a few new characters and makes them neighbors. In the first book "Midnight Crossroads" we are introduced to new characters and reunited with old, in this prequel we gain more insight to the lives that have lead them to live in this small town where every one has a secret and nothing is ever quite what it seems. Combining paranormal and crime, this book tells an intriguing and entertaining story that leaves you waiting breathlessly for the next one in the serie
