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 truth....

The audio performance was well done but the book was such a disappointment. It was basically a cozy mystery, with a very slight paranormal flavour, not at all what I would have expected from Charlaine Harris. I liked True Blood and I really liked Harper Connelly but I hated this!

Very enjoyable, thanks for making it available to listen in Kindle Unlimited. This series has gotten me through many miles of walking. I love the characters and I especially like the boarding school setting of this one and the glimpse of Dixon's past.

Wildlife biologist Mac Barrett avoided his hometown of Scarlet Falls for years - too many bad memories. But when he receives the news that his father is dying, he rushes home only to discover he's too late. Shaken, Mac retreats to his remote cabin seeking peace and solace. Instead, he crashes his jeep to narrowly avoid running over the naked body of a woman lying in the road. Even more disturbing, when he regains consciousness, the body is gone.

These books are pretty good for listening while walking or working out. Some strange pronunciations by narrator e.g. "shone" sounds like "shown" but on the whole, it was good. Thank you.

Landon Brinkley's dreams are all coming true. She's landed an internship with the fabulous Selah Smith, event planner for the Hollywood elite, taking her from small-town Texas to the bright lights of LA. Landon soon finds herself in a world in which spending a million dollars on an event - even a child's birthday party - is de rigueur and the whims of celebrity clients are life-and-death matters.

Excellent audible book, I somehow missed that it was performed by the author until the very end of the recording. I had been wondering how the voice actor was such a good fit with the main character, Texan accent and all...now it makes sense. Anyway it was also a very enjoyable book, well done to Rachel Hollis.
