Title: Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson #2)
Author: Darynda Jones
Stars: 4 Stars
I know it is never a good idea to pick up a book in a series and not start with book 1. Well I did and the author is able to get readers up to date without taking up half the book to do it.
The story is full of one liners that at times takes away from the story but will have readers laughing out loud. The characters are very light for the topic and Charley Davidson will have readers following her not matter where she goes or what she does because the humor follow.
I can't wait to see what happens next in the series
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher St. Martin's Press for a copy of Darynda Jones Second Grave On the Left.
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she cant help but wonder what Cookies up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a womans name. Mimis husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message. Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. Hes left his body because hes being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes cant let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, theyll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heavenwell, lets just say it wouldnt be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?
