Midnight Crossings - Audio

Title/Author: Midnight Crossroad (Midnight Texas #1) by Charlaine Harris.

Read by: Susan Bennett.

Genre: Supernatural.

Publisher:  Recorded Books.

Source: Library.

Synopsis:  Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).

Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the

Midnyte Musings:  This is not a book I expected to enjoy as much as I did.  It had a lot of characters that were not fully developed,  a lot of point of views and a lot of the events felt forced.  However, I followed it closely and enjoyed it immensely.

The characters were quirky and different enough to differentiate between each other.  The book starts out with one of the characters moving to the small town of Midnight and discovering that a small town holds big secrets.  I thought the story would follow him mainly, but it was really about several different characters.  The main theme in this installment is the murder of Aubrey.   

I don't feel anyone was placed in the story that did not have a role.  It also contained a lot of serious issues yet did it in a manner that was easy to follow; murder, militarism, racism.  For a tiny town, a lot happens and Midnight seems like an interesting place to live.

One of my favorite parts about this book was Fiji Cavanaugh's cat, Mr. Snuggly.  I'm not going to say any more, but even if you hate everything else in the book, Mr. Snuggly makes up for it.

Narration:  I have to admit, that I can't guarantee I would have liked the book as much if I had read it instead of listened to it.  Susan Bennett did a good job trying to differentiate between the characters and she moved the story along.  Again, my favorite part - the voice of Mr. Snuggly.

A fun, light read.  You could probably finish this one very fast.

I love this series- the 2nd book was even better in my opinion. Plus, I love Fiji has my maiden name! Mr. Snuggly is probably the best thing on the audio version too.

I used to love Harris's books but then I kind of fell out of love with her writing. I might give this new series a try at some point.
