There’s a reviewer on goodreads called Jilly who really sums up this series for me, she says ‘this series is one of those kinds where it doesn’t move all that fast but you just enjoy hanging out with the characters’ I couldn’t have said it better than that myself. I love the characters in this series and all their quirky, individual ways.
There are a few spoilers here from Midnight Crossroad but the review of Day Shift is spoiler free don’t worry!
Day Shift invites us further into the world of Midnight, Texas and the characters who live there. A tiny hamlet near Davy, Midnight has lots of boarded up storefronts and only a few people living there. There’s Fiji a self proclaimed witch who owns the store The Inquiring Mind, Manfred, still fairly new to the town, a telephone psychic, Bobo who owns the pawnbrokers, Olivia some kind of superhero fighter woman and Lemuel the emotion draining vampire. There’s also Joe and Chuy a gay couple who might perhaps be angels. Then there’s Madonna, Teacher and their baby who seem to be normal and the Rev who nobody knows quite what he is. There’s also the return of some of the characters from the Sookie Stackhouse series as well!
Manfred finds himself in a spot of bother in Day Shift when one of his clients dies during a private reading. Accused of stealing her jewellery by her psycho son, and suspected of potentially murdering the woman, Manfred has to rely on his friends in the town to help him out of this mess, even if their methods are a little unconventional.
I’m getting rather addicted to this series and looking forward to getting straight into Night Shift the final book in this trilogy series.
