Day Shift by Charlaine Harris
It’s been a while since I read the first book and watched the first season of the television series. The two kind of meshed in my memory so it was a bit odd adjusting to what information the characters knew and didn’t know yet.
I enjoyed reading the story. It was fun catching up with all the characters since the last book. They all have such distinct and memorable personalities. I’m impressed the story was able to include them all without becoming confusing.
I didn’t find the central mystery very interesting. It seemed kind of bland in comparison to the mystery from the first book. It was really my already established fondness for the characters that kept me reading. I enjoyed reading their interactions and liked how their personalities directed their plans and actions.
I enjoyed the addition of new characters. It was also fun to see a bit of crossover from the author’s Sookie Stackhouse series. It made me feel a bit nostalgic and want to reread them.
Overall I thought the story was a good read. I enjoyed revisiting the world and learning more about the characters. The leisurely pace and stakes of the mystery made it feel like a filler though.
