Night Shift (Midnight, Texas #3)
by Charlaine Harris

May 3rd 2016 by Ace
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—“the Mark Twain of things that live under your bed”*—comes a new novel of Midnight, Texas, the town where some secrets will never see the light of day...

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...

It seems that people are coming to Midnight, Texas, and killing themselves right at the main crossroads of this small town. Something is going on, with the first suicide happening in October, and Lemuel, the vampire who works at night at the local pawnshop, Midnight Pawn, owned by Bobo Winthrop, is reading and translating ancient texts to find out clues. As more and more he delves into the book, he begins to realized something terrible is driving these people, most who have done some sort of harm or not a good friend of the local witch, Fiji Cavanaugh. That t might even be the reason that supernatural beings like him and tiger shapeshifters, witches, killers and psychics come to this town. 

Bestselling author Charlaine Harris who brought the Sookie Stackhouse series I loved a lot, has me addicted to this trilogy with this last book. I really wish this town was real, so I could take a trip and visit it and its unusual inhabitants along with the mundane ones living there too. Edgy at times and down to earth at others, Night Shift captures the reader’s imagination with a paranormal mystery hook, line and sinker.

I give Night Shift 5 sheep.


About the Author:
Charlaine Harris is a New York Times bestselling author who has been writing for over thirty years. She was born and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She switched to novels a few years later, and achieved publication in 1981 with Sweet and Deadly.

Personally, Harris has been married for many years. She mother of three wonderful children and the grandmother of two. She lives in central Texas, and when she is not writing her own books, she reads omnivorously. Her house is full of rescue dogs.


  1. I didn't really like the first book, Midnight, Texas, when I first read it, but I liked it more when I reread it. I'm a bigger fan of the audiobooks of this series. As a matter of fact, I finished listening to the first two this month and started Night Shift this weekend.


    1. cool! I need to get into audio books...they are written differently than most UFs...that's what I liked about them though...not only was the story good, but I enjoyed the experience of reading it...if that makes sense ?
