it was amazing
Read in April, 2012

Oh my goodness this book is amazing, funny, brilliant and unputdownable (I know that’s not even a word but that’s how good this book is, it has me inventing words). If you don’t know this series it is about Charley Davidson who is the grim reaper plus she is also a PI. Reyes Farrow is the hot gorgeous sexy bad boy son of Satan who keeps popping up in his corporeal body for a booty call and to protect Charley from all the deadly scrapes she gets in. In this book Charley helps find a missing woman, tries to solve the murders surrounding the woman’s disappearance whilst also trying to find Reyes body which is being tortured be demons. All in a days work for our Charley.

Ms Jones has created a fantastic series, it is up there now as one of my favourites and I am addicted to it. I cannot tell you how funny it is from the chapter headings down to the snarky comments from Charley. The scenes between Charley and Reyes are so hot and tense that I get into a dribbling frenzy reading them. Plus Reyes is a bad boy, I mean he is good protecting Charley and all that, but he is also bad. In book 1 he threatens Charley saying he will have to kill her rather that let his father have her. Oh man I am a sucker for a bad boy.

The characters are wonderful I don’t have a bad word to say about any of them. The plot running along side the Reyes/Charley story is really good and the Reyes/Charley story is awesome. We find out more about both of them in book 2 and I am excited to learn even more about them in book 3, speaking of which I have gone straight into book 3 Third Grave Straight Ahead. I am already having panic attacks about finishing book 3. What am I going to do then? How am I going to get my Charley and Reyes fix? Second Grave On The Left is absolutely amazing I highly recommend it, I’m going to give it 5 stars. If you haven’t read this series please do so as you are seriously missing out.

Nichole ~Bookaholic~ This is a fun series...if you can try the audio, Lorelei King does an awesome job...

Claire I have tried audio books but I loose concentration too much. I have to stick with reading. It is a fun series I'm loving it.
