Day Shift

Charlaine Harris


Vampires, shifters, and psychics, oh my! These are just some of the people who make up the population of Midnight, Texas. And yet, they all manage to live in peace unless they are disturbed by outsiders. Then the trouble begins.

I particularly the the pairing of the vampire Lemuel with the mysterious, beautiful and deadly Olivia. Since the inhabitants of Midnight have perfected the art of minding their own business, no one knows exactly what Olivia’s background is. They only know that she’s a good person to leave alone, and that’s OK with them.

I like how Harris’ mind works and how she is able to create a world in which these characters are able to get along with each other. Mostly.
