The Back Door of Midnight (Dark Secrets #5)
The Back Door of Midnight was the very first Elizabeth Chandler book I read, and it made me become a fan of her books. And out of all the books I have read by her, this still remains my
The plot was interesting and totally unpredictable. Throughout the story, I was trying to guess who was responsible for the murder of her uncle and I was completely surprised by the true identity of the murderer. The characters, though slightly underdeveloped,...more

The characters were memorable with realistic dialogue and emo...more

"You mean Dr. Pepper?"
"For the love of God!" She exploded. "People expect everything from a psychic! 'Doctor,' 'mister,' I was close enough. I didn't call it 'Mrs. Salt,' did I?”
