Teaser Tuesday: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser:
"What's wrong?" he asked.

"Oh, this damn spell," she said, as if she were talking about the weather. "My great-aunt left it to me, but her handwriting was atrocious, and I've tried three different ingredients because I can't figure out what she meant."
This week my teaser comes from Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris. I got the first book in a new series from Amazon Vine. Here is the description of this May 6 release:
From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale—populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it…

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...

  1. Now this sounds exciting! I haven't watched True Blood in ages but this novel might be more interesting. Witches and spells are my favourite thing ever! Thanks for stopping by :)
