~A Chick Who Reads
Grab your copy. Start from the beginning, or hop around and start anywhere. It’s all good fun from these wonderful authors.
The best compilation of short stories I have ever read!
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
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.
Gone by Midnight is an entertaining and eclectic collection of stories. From the opening sweet ghost story “Aunt Edna”, to sci-fi, fantasy, and everything in between, I enjoyed them all.
~The Book’s the Thing
I have yet to read anything by the Lavenes that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Whenever you pick up one of their books you just know it’s going to be a good read. What I really enjoyed about this collection of short stories is that it gave me another peek into the creative workings of their minds.

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.
