I am so glad we have another mysterious place to visit now that Harris is done writing Bon Temps books. I liked the slow reveal of just what the different citizens of Midnight, Texas are, and I did not guess "who done it" before the murderer was revealed. I find the idea of a tiny town, a slightly magical pawnshop, and the endpapers of the book itself charming.

The story starts out a little rough, with the descriptions and all, but if you can get past the first few chapters it gets good. I really liked how a couple of the characters were from the Aurora Teagarden and Lily Bard series as I enjoyed both series as well. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

What fun this was! I enjoyed it much more than the Snookie series. The characters were all likeable and although the town held alot of dark mystery about it I kinda found myself wanting to go to the cafe and just sit and have the daily special while I checked out the cafe regulars, ...kinda. I'll be back for more of the Midnight Texas series that's for sure. I'm hooked!!

You need to have all three books. The story is basically spread across all three books. It starts off rather slow, but then you realize that the story is really about gradually discovering what all of the inhabitants of Midnight, TX really are, and it's definitely not normal folks. It's a really good story, incredibly well-written, with interlacing storylines. And it does have its moments of action that are pretty amazing, especially the grand finale.

It's set in the universe of Sookie Stackhouse and Sookie is referenced at one point. Some have complained about it, but I thought it was rather cool and a good addition to the Stackhouse universe.
