Fans of Joyce and Jim Lavene will thrill at this collection of thirteen short stories—many are set in the worlds of their national bestselling mystery series, including the Missing Pieces Mysteries, the Renaissance Faire Mysteries, the Retired Witches Mysteries, and an upcoming mystery novel!
These stories contain the elements of mystery and fantasy the Lavenes are famous for, as well as some new things their readers have never seen. Several stories feature characters interacting with ghosts, magic, and the supernatural—the healing woman in “Courtship;” the Civil War widow in “One with the Darkness;” the city girl who summons a wizard from the past in “The Magician and the Sorceress/Accountant;” and the young introvert in “Aunt Edna” who finds her calling with help from a ghostly visitor.
Poignant, charming, and captivating, Joyce and Jim Lavene bring their characteristic wit and heart to these stories and introduce each one with a passage about its origin or how it ties into the universe they’ve created. Gone by Midnight is a treasury of tales that will delight the mind and touch the heart from one of the most prolific writing duos of our time.

My Review

It's difficult in a few pages to write a wonderful story, complete, well-defined but these two authors have managed it perfectly. Each story is a real gem. In these thirteen stories there is the best of their writing, both paranormal and cozy mystery: there are ghosts, witches, zombies, mysteries to solve and characters that warm the heart. There are romantic tales, paranormal, fantasy, mystery, even about rituals of Native Americans. I loved Gone by Midnight, it is definitely my favorite. It's a sweet short-story, touching, sad but positive at the same time. Another of my favorite is Aunt Edna  where a sweet ghost becomes cupid. I even loved the sci-fi stories, even if it is a genre that I rarely read because I don't like it at all.
Every time I read something by these authors I love them more and more, if you've never tried them I reccomend you  do it, you will not be disappointed.

  2. Do you write each story together or each write separate stories? I think writing with someone else would drive me crazy, especially if there were creative differences.
