For I Have Sinned
A sad but sweet, short story.
I do feel like I missed something between Charley and Reyes between book 1 and this Novella. Hopefully it will get explained in book 2.
For I have Sinned is a short novella about a woman who had died. The woman has no memory of her past and Charley Davidson aka the Grim Reaper helps the woman find out about her death. It was a little bit touching to read about the woman's death.
This novella also helps us view Charley from a deceased person's point of view which I found very interesting. Charley is the same as ever; beautiful, kind and cocky. And of course, she's glowing. Mr. Enigma aka Reyes p ...more

Seeing how Charley operated through another person's viewpoint was wonderful and even though it's a short...and sad story, I enjoyed how it ended.
I loved that Reyes was in the story especially with how things ended in the first book. I can't wait to read more about him!
This is absolutely not a necessary story for the series, and as long as you've read book 1 this could probably be read at any point after that. I'm glad I took the time for this one -- at just 32 pages it's not a huge investment :)
There's not a lot going on here, but there is a little bit of Reyes in the story and a peek inside Charley's psyc ...more
This has spoilers for First Grave on the Right, and probably won't be very interesting if you haven't read that anyway.
I don’t usually like novellas, but this one was really cute.
She’s trying to help the women pass on and as you read, you figure out who she is and what happened to her. It’s a SUPER quick read, but if you are a fan of Reyes, well you should give this a go because he has bits in this one.
Also, very nice peak into Reyes's powers that are beyond kicking ass and protecting his 'light'.
There is nothing to this short story. I think I finished it in 20 minutes and that was with distractions. I knew it was a short story going into it, but I didn't realise it was a SHORT story. It is a bit misleading as you are clicking away on your kindle so you get the impression the story is actually long, ...more
We go through the other side, well not THE other side… of the fence being in Jo Anne's point of view. A recently deceased young woman who's found her way to Charley and trying to figure out just why and how she died. It was interesting to see the ghost and passing over experience and what ...more
I actually cried at this novel - what a fantastic short story from an outside point of view... We see Charley here as her true self and what she does for the person that needs her help... a wonderful heart wrenching story - beautiful!!!
2nd read - November 2018
For I Have Sinned is a short story set in the Charley Davidson series between book one (First Grave on the Right) and book two (Second Grave on the Left). I have to say straight away don't read this story if you haven't read the first book - it will give you major spoilers if you do. To be honest I'm pretty sure I picked up a spoiler anyway and I only just finsihed reading the first book! I am wondering if that's because the version I read was an A ...more
A udělá to i tentokrát. Nezáleží na tom, že ji duch mladé ženy probudí ve tři ráno a neví, jak se jmenuje, kdy zemřela, ani jak se tam vlastně vzala…
Na tuhle novelku jsem byla zvědavá od chvíle, kdy jsem zjistila, že něco takového Darynda vůbec napsala. Ani jsem pořádně nevěděla, o čem je, ale věděla jsem, že bude stejně skvělá ...more
So I hunted down a copy, and the rest of the series to date, and sat down to read this short. Which surprised me as it was told by a ghost that had found her way to Charley's light. ...more
For I Have Sinned is a short story following First Grave on the Right (book 1 from Charley Davidson Series). Charley is a private investigator but being a PI is just a disguise. She is really a Soul Reaper who helps lost souls “go to the light”. No, really, Charley shines like a beacon to call the lost souls to her.
The books in this series are told as a first person POV by Charley herself, but not in this novella. This story is told by a lost soul seeking Charley’s help. Also as a first person
Well, damn, this short story, told from the first person perspective of a newly created ghost, was better for me than the first book. And re-sparked my desire to continue the series. It was good to see Charley from the eyes of a ghost, with all of her awesome traits and her peculiarities. And the ghost's story was touching, sad, and nicely done. Recommended short, but not a stand alone.
