Day Shift by Charlaine Harris
Now the #1 New York Times bestselling 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…

Day Shift is the second book in the Midnight Texas trilogy by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Residents of Midnight, Texas are concerned to learn that the old abandoned Rio Roca Fria Hotel is being refurbished. Someone is spending quite a bit on the renovation, and it is complete in record time, but why? Then a client of Manfred’s meets an unexpected end, and her son makes public accusations against the psychic. Reporters flock to Midnight and all the extra attention on their little (almost ghost) town is not welcomed, especially as the Rev has an unusual visitor.

While her narrative seems almost flat to begin with, Harris soon has the reader rushing through the pages as the action hots up. In this instalment, Harris expands on each of the established characters, satisfying, to some extent, the curiosity about these unusual residents that may have arisen in Midnight Crossroad. The action includes quite a few murders, telepathy, a séance, a curfew at full moon, a crazy brother, a jogging accident, several disguises, an attempted robbery, a retired Vegas mobster, a demented grandfather, an influx of fangbangers from Dallas and more than one press conference. Someone flies over the town (with wings), and someone gets killed by a wild animal. A very enjoyable read that will have fans looking forward to the next book, Night Shift.
