    in Books

    If you love wrapping yourself up in a great mystery, or feeling your heart race with a spine tingling Urban Fantasy, you've come to the right place! Thursday, September 17th at 6pm EST!  I'll welcome #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Charlaine Harris to the show! Charlaine has been writing for over thirty years. She was born and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and teenage angst, she began writing plays, but switched to novels a few years later, and achieved publication in 1981 with Sweet and Deadly. Her later books have been in the urban fantasy genre. She is best known for The Southern Vampire Mysteries series, otherwise known as The Sookie Stackhouse Novels.

    Book Blurb:

    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…
