FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT - Darynda Jones


From the back of the book:
This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual. Or a diagram of some kind. A flow chart would have been nice.....

Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (like murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely. But what does he want with Charley? And why can’t she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?

****************************

A funny, full of thrills book is this! I love Charley Davidson's character and how she handles the ups and downs of being a reaper. There are the dead she helps cross over, some are ready and some not so much. Three need her help with the why so they can move on.

Luckily, Charley is a PI as well as the reaper, so she has the mad skills to git'r'done.

There's a next door neighbor who is her bud, ghosts a plenty not ready to move on and love to mess with her.

There's also a mysterious entity who is invading her dreams and life.

I cannot wait to read the next in the series, SECOND GRAVE ON THE LEFT, to find out what's going to happen next.

Yay! I thought this one was super cute. I've been trying to get my sisters to read it now as well.

Becky: It is SUPERB! Darynda had me with the shoes on the cover and I also love the title.
I know you and the sisters will dig it, too.
