Summary from Goodreads:
In Midnight Crossroad, Charlaine Harris “capture[d] the same magic as the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, and [took] it to another level" (Houston Press). Now the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels returns to the one-traffic-light town you see only when you’re on the way to someplace else....
There is no such thing as bad publicity, except in Midnight, Texas, where the residents like to keep to themselves. Even in a town full of secretive people, Olivia Charity is an enigma. She lives with the vampire Lemuel, but no one knows what she does; they only know that she’s beautiful and dangerous.
Psychic Manfred Bernardo finds out just how dangerous when he goes on a working weekend to Dallas and sees Olivia there 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 waited way too long to finish up the second book in this series, mainly because I did not read it before I had to return it to the library (and I was on hold for months both times, lol).
I love the mixture of paranormal creatures like weretigers, psychics, and other surprising creatures. Plus, I love the characters that Harris has created, so far my favorite is a tie between Manfred and Fiji.
I cannot wait until the next novel in the series comes out around May.
I recommend checking out this series if you enjoy Harris's other paranormal series because it is in the same universe and characters make appearances.
