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 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
-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

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...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
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
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
Okay so the new pub date is October 2012! Yay!

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
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
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.

Only two things in life are certain. Guess which one I am.--Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet exceeded my expectations. Way exceeded them! Charley Davidson has a heart of gold and is one of the most wittiest and entertaining heroines in an Urban Fantasy series I've read to date. You gotta love a girl who names her boobs Will Robinson and Danger!
Charley Davidson is a hot mess. After the betrayal by her father and Reyes, and being to...more
I loved this book just as much as the first 3, but I have to get this off my chest.
It's starting to bug me that there is almost NO development in the relationship between Charley and Reyes. It's always the same thing: they are angry at each other for lots of reasons, but as soon as you put them in the same room they are in a life-or-death situation, where Reyes jumps in and cuts through her attacker's spine, or he is all over her lady parts and very much into heavy petting. (the latter I...more
The story starts out with Charley as a shut-in (in Cookie's apartment, not her own) with lots of crap bought from TV infomercials and no plans to ever leave the apartment building. She has not heard from Reyes in over two months. She also not spoken to her father in pretty...more
Five Stars! I just cannot get enough of Charley and this series!
After the events that occurred at the terrifying and stunning conclusion of Third Grave Dead Ahead, we find our beloved Charley a prisoner in her own apartment. Buried behind mountains of cardboard boxes, as she has become an avid shopping network customer. Afraid to venture out of her apartment and nearly broke, Charley spends hours buying useless stuff and spending herself out of house and home. Thankfully, Cookie shows up and giv...more
Done with this one as well. The other one isn't out until July. I want it NOW!:(
After the events of the previous book our fearless heroine has gone from being afraid of nothing to being afraid of her own shadow. She can't sleep at nights, can't get out of the apartment, can't trust anyone. It was interesting to see what happens to someone who thought herself invinsible when she comes face to face with death!
But our little Grim Reaper isn't about to let her fears run her life(well not compl...more
Only two things in life are certain. Guess which one I am.
- Charley Davidson, GRIM REAPER
Let's just say that our kick ass heroine isn't in the best place right now...after she was tortured by that evil man and everything went awry, Charley have been closed off at her home for months now.
She is angry at her dad, at Reyes but most of all she feels fear, and for someone that was so unafraid and was willing to took so many risks, the fear is crippling.
But she can't keep avoiding the world and he...more
After the events of the previous book Charley isn’t exactly the same anymore. OK, she is sarcastic and crazy for coffee still, b...more
