The new story in the phenomenal Midnight, Texas series from number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris.
At Midnight's local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves - only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town. Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is? There's a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place. And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose - which just might happen - it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be....

One of my favorite things about Charlene Harris's books is that they tend to be funny when you don't expect it. And though I felt for Fiji's dilemma I could not help but crack up at its description and her reactions.
I've listened to all three of the Midnight Texas books now and this, by far, is my favorite. Charlaine Harris has a wonderful sense of humor and Susan Bennett does a fantastic job in translating this for your audio pleasure.
Without saying too much, Night Shift again focuses on the little town of Midnight and its eclectic and diverse residents. The town is again threatened. As dead bodies begin to pile up, will the residents, both magical and not, survive?
My favorite character, Mr Snuggly the Cat, has more of a presence and I cannot get enough of hearing from him.
If you haven't read or listened to the two previous books, get in it! If you haven't read any of her other series, get on it as well. Fantastic work.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
I'm really sad this series has come to an end. I feel like characters have so much more to give. There is something so comforting about Harris' writing, especially in this trilogy. I've read or listened to every series of hers and Midnight is my favorite. Bennett's narration has been spot on in every book.
I'm so glad I decided to listen to the last 2 books in the series. Susan Bennett does such an amazing job with all the voices. My absolute favorite is Mr. snuggly the cat. I laugh every time he speaks.
Not only are the words brilliant but the voice of the reader is as brilliant and entertaining. She captured each characters personality and sense of humor. So memorable. Fantastic in every way. I love the stories about this enchanting town and its one of a kind characters. I hate to see the series end. A trilogy is not enough. Ms. Feehan's writing captures you completely. What a great world builder.
I didn't think I would like this book based on the reviews, but something led me to give it a try and I am happy I did.
I found the story to be engaging and really came to root for the diverse residents of Midnight.
I loved all of the characters but I was especially found of the cat, and while I wanted Fegie to end up getting someone else in the end. I cam understand why the author made that choice for her.
I look forward to other books in this series and hope they come soon.
Give this book a try. I think you will like it because it's worth a credit.
The narrator is very good but the storyline is boring and predictable. Spoiler: having sex in the middle of the street with all your neighbors watching will keep a demon from escaping. So much potential but none of it realized. Bummer.
One of the best collection of characters ever!
I could not wait to finish this series, it was suspenseful , scary, mysterious , romantic and even a bit funny at times . what more could ask for ,
This is not a story full of action and drama. It's a story of a small town and its occupants who come together for a single cause, to protect each other and maintain community. It promotes diversity and acceptance. It also reminds us that at the end of the day love is more important than anything and that it just takes some of us a little time to get there. Also, it speaks to the need to have empathy for others because we all have a history and personal challenges. I recommend this book series who are looking for a simple and fun story.
