I am so glad we have another mysterious place to visit now that Harris is done writing Bon Temps books. I liked the slow reveal of just what the different citizens of Midnight, Texas are, and I did not guess "who done it" before the murderer was revealed. I find the idea of a tiny town, a slightly magical pawnshop, and the endpapers of the book itself charming.
The story starts out a little rough, with the descriptions and all, but if you can get past the first few chapters it gets good. I really liked how a couple of the characters were from the Aurora Teagarden and Lily Bard series as I enjoyed both series as well. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
