Waiting on Wednesday #75 - Day Shift by Charlaine Harris
"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on the second book in the Midnight, Texas series by Charlaine Harris. Day Shift is due out May 5. 2015.
Synopsis from Goodreads.com:
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…
Why am I waiting on this book? I read book one in the series, Midnight Crossroad, and enjoyed the story and the cast of quirky characters. Olivia was very much an enigma even in book one. Manfred had the point of view of an outsider since he had just moved to Midnight in the first book. I'm curious if he is more accepted now in book 2, and what kind of problems the unwanted attention he draws to the town will cause.
