Our heroine, Charlotte Davidson, goes by the nickname Charley, I’ll just let that sink in a moment, shall I, is a grim reaper. Ghosts pass through her on their way to the other side, the good one.
Usually, dead people pass on to their reward or punishment without needing to use her as a portal, but there are those with unfinished business and she assists them, Charley is also a private investigator with ADD, an evil stepmother, an almost estranged sister, a father she adores.
She also have a best friend, Cookie, and this friendship is rock solid. These women would do anything for each other and I appreciate that. Her cherry red Jeep Wrangler is Misery, “but not like the book. She has named another body part Virginia and I’ll let that soak in a minute, shall I.
In a corner of her living room, there is a ghost she has named Mr. Wong who never moves out of the corner and is levitating a few inches off the floor. Wong never speaks, never leaves the corner. Gotta tell you there is a series and I have only read the first eight before the remainder became too expensive for me.
I think there are twelve out now. I’d love to read volumes nine through twelve. None of these are standalones. They must be read in order and it does get a bit tedious when the author repeats certain aspects of the back story in each of the volumes.
So much humor, so much loving friendship, tantalizing mysteries, pathos, these novels run a huge emotional gamut and I stayed with it through eight volumes because I just had to know what comes next. The eighth volume ends this particular story arc and introduces a new one.
Most annoyingly it ends on a cliffhanger. Book 2, the cases to solve begins with Cookie’s missing friend, the mystery of a dead guy in Cookies trunk and finding Reyes human body being ravaged by demons.
Even though I felt the romance was even less in this book than the first, I am still very much entertained by Charley and the many side characters. I find that I am a fan of Darynda Jones’ humor and story telling.
: Second Grave on the Left (): Darynda Jones: Books
I look forward to what Charley gets herself into in book 3 and hope that we get more of Reyes. He’s a fantastic Hero when we do get to see him. She’s a portal for the dead to pass through to heaven.
Since Charley can see and talk to the dead, she has gravve her former cop father jonez current cop uncle solve cases. The main focus in each book are the cases Charley solves with the help of her best friend Cookie, her uncle and the dead victims.
The side focus is the romance between Charley and Reyes and the impending war with the demons that is predicted. I stumbled across this series by having won the 4th book and I liked it so much that I had to get the other books to see how it all got started.
It is always so nice to find a new twist to the paranormal genre with interesting characters, I especially love the inner dialog of Charley, with plenty of action, secons and some steamy romance, and lots of demons of course.
I can’t wait to see what will happen next, and lucky for me I won’t have to wait since I got the next book all lined up already.
That’s the nice thing when you discover a series a little late, not waiting for the next read. One person found this helpful. This second book in the Charley Davidson series was as funny and chaotic as darjnda first.
Her best friend Mimi is missing. She is also trying to find out darynxa the dead guy in Cookie’s car grrave. But, most of all, she is trying to find Reyes body before he dies. Reyes is determined to let his human body die; Charley doesn’t want that to happen. And, also, Charley’s father is being threatened by someone who wants to kill him or, at least, kill his family.
All of those cases intertwine in this investigation. Charley is her usual fear-free self. She doesn’t seem to have any sense of self-preservation as she confronts criminals of all sorts of descriptions on her quest to find Mimi and save Reyes.
Second Grave on the Left
This book was laugh out loud funny which is unusual in the urban fantasy genre. I enjoyed every minute of this story and can’t wait to read more of Charley’s adventures. I love Charley Davidson. She is a corker! The suspense and pace of the storyline is timed just right to keep you on the edge of iones seat. You feel almost like you are juggling all these different parts of the plot just daryndda Charley. Perfect, dark and sinful is great motivation to stick around and read about!
Mysterious and menacing, but I am sympathetic to his conundrum, being he’s the Son of Satan and all!
Well gotta’ go because I’m on to the next book 3 in the Charley Davidson series. See all reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
