Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson #4)
Sometimes being the grim reaper really is, well, grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple of months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her...more
-The majority of the story was predictable and pointless. The book begins with Charley moaning about her agoraphobia — she's not left her flat or worked a case for 2 months since she was tortured. Anyway, that changes quickly enough when she takes on a case for a woman who's been tormented by a mystery somebody and just like that Charley's agoraphobia and emotional scars seem to vanish and she goes on her merry way to investigate the girl's tormentor. There were a few times Char ...more
The release date was moved from 2013 to October 30th 2012!!!!
Not usually a fan girl but I will make an exception: Eeeeeeeeeeek! Sooooo Happy right now!! *does happy dance*
For some reason I had thought that this would be a trilogy...hmmm, I am not complaining!*Fist Pump*
Considering I have a ton of ARCs I should really be catching up on, and considering how much I love Charley, I really should have known better than to tell myself, "Just one chapter!" But it didn't even take a chapter, I was hooked by the opening paragraph.
'I sat watching the Buy From Home Channel with my dead aunt Lillian and wondered what my life would've been like had I not just eaten an entire carton of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy with a mocha latter chaser. Probably about t ...more

PLEASE COME OUT!

TO THE AUTHOR!
After what happened in the last book, Charley is going through some heavy stuff. She's having a hard time sleeping and spending most of her money at the Buy From Home Channel. Thank goodness Cookie comes to the rescue and puts a stop to that. And also thank goodness for Harper showing up...a new client!
Well, by now you should be used to this crazy paced story line. I'm always amazed at all the different events going on. Naturally, you can figure out some of the puzzles but I really love t ...more
I know - only 3 stars. I still love Charley and will continue reading the series. It's just that she lost a lot of her mojo in this book.
In the last book, Charley was tortured, and it was really really bad. (Screw you, Thesaurus!) She is slowly healing, but has a bit of PTSD from the experience, and so while her body is healed, her mind is far from it. She has not left her apartment in two months, and instead spent ...more
This is why I'm not good with more-than-4-books-in-the-series review.
I'll just give you some of Charley's words of wisdom that I certainly follow. Cross my heart.
“If you must eat a banana in public, never make eye contact.”
“Insanity does NOT run in my family. It strolls through, takes its time, and gets to know everyone personally."
As all of you know, I’m a big fan of these book series and I was really excited about reading this book, especially after the way things ended up in the last one. The biggest reasons for that are: the amazing writing style of the author, a unique and interesting storyline and most of all I like them, because these are one of those rare books where I actually like the main female character Charley The Grim Reaper almost as her tall, dark & hot bad boy Reyes.
That’s a really big plus ...more
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet brought more insight to Charley and what she is capable of, and it also shed more light on everything else that is going on with the reaper, the ghosts, and the people surrounding her.
I loved the case Charley had to work on in Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, because she really had to use all of her wits to figure out what was going on, and she definitely got it before I did! Cookie is such a great side-ch ...more
I sat a ...more
Can we please take a moment & bow our heads for the hotness that is Reyes?
Whew. I needed that.
The last 15% of this book was AMAZING!
It was nice learning a bit more about Charley, her past, her beginnings, her abilities BUT I NEED MORE.
I was truly baffled at the turn in Harper's case, did not see that coming.
Denise ... I think she's trying .... not enough, but she's trying.
Glad to see Charley & Gemma bonding.
Love Cookie, needed more of her in this book. And, hello, let's get ...more
Charley gets to put her crazy on and dip into the pool of hoarding for sanity, it's too good I can't spill more. She also gets lusty with a few guys, oh yeah, she is smoking sexy. : D Her expectations of what life would be like when Reyes was finally freed have not happened, darn ...more
“Your existence gives me a headache. Go stand over there.”
“After searching for a space, I parked behind the tattoo parlor in front of a sign that said NO PARKING. Since it didn't specify to whom it was referring, I figured it couldn't possibly be ...more
And dude, WHERE IS GARRETT? I can't believe I didn't get my Swopes fix. He turned up TWICE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
Blog Rating: 4.5/5
I pressed my lips together, then said, “Stalker.”
I gasped. “Neanderthal.”
Why did his [Reyes] entire repertoire of insults question my mental stability?
We open with Charley, still dealing with the effects from the events that ended book 3, Third Grave Dead Ahead. She was tortured in her own apartment and is having a bit of trouble coming to terms with that, understandably so. Her way of dealing? ...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
One of the things I love most about this series is the humor. It’s great to read about a tough take no prisoner heroine and have her say and think the funniest stuff. It makes the reading a lot enjoyable. This book doesn ...more

What made me love this book:
+ Charlie's character gets deeper. She's so often unfazed by anything, I liked seeing how finally she has human reactions to trauma.
+ A cute pet! Artemis rocks.
+ Dynamics between Cookie and Charlie. Best friendship ever:
"Do you think we're alone in the universe?"
"Were you abducted by aliens again?"
+ How Charlie "bug ...more
THE BEST OF THE SERIES:
1) The fun-to-dye-for humor. I love Charley. She is something else. Everything that comes out of her mouth makes me laugh so bad! I adore her and her hilarious way of behaving and thinking.
2) THE freaking-gorgeous-and-mysterious Hero. As if being the son of Satan isn't enough our sexy Reyes has some big secrets coming to get known in this installment.
Just one tiny thing I didn't like:
1) This is the fact that other t ...more
Fourth Grave is my favorite in the series so far.

I have been such a huge fan of this series since I read the first three books in February 2012. The thought of waiting until now to read this book actually made me feel a little sick... but here we are and it was so worth the wait.
I didn't think Jones could top the previous book, but she did it. I loved every single page, every word. I couldn't put it down.
After being attacked by the monster that raised/dragged up Reyes, Charley i ...more
