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…
In many ways Ms Harris is the queen of supernatural fiction set in the Deep South and I know that some readers have been disappointed by this new departure. I really enjoy her quirky people and the mystery that as I wade through I get more and more involved in. Hints of romance but nothing terribly full on and it's fabulous the way it connects with her previously written books. Character driven and full of mystery and as the series progresses who knows what Ms Harris will dream up next?
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
