[Review]: Day Shift by Charlaine Harris

Title: Day Shift
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Mystery/Urban Fantasy
Release Date: May 5, 2015

Summary:  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…

Thoughts:  Excellent Read! I loved the first book, so I was eager to jump into this one. Of course Ms. Harris doesn't disappoint. She has created another great group of interesting and diverse characters. In this installment the reader learns more about each of the residents of Midnight. I feel there is a lot more to learn about these characters so I can't wait to read the next book. Fans of Charlaine Harris will be happy to know there are a couple familiar faces from the Sookie Stackhouse-verse. Day Shift is an exciting read with a great mystery to piece together.

Score: 4 Stars
