Untitled ~ Series finale due out 30 Oct 2018

Synopsis of book #1: First Grave on the Right
A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper

Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. 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 (i.e. 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.

This is a thrilling debut novel from an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Charley's best friend, Cookie, is a hoot! And, who doesn't love (or wanna be loved by) Reyes?! >;)

Purple (purpletan) | 55 comments I have just finished this series. Had me rolling on the bed laughing my heart out. :)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments I love this series, it's a new fave! I gave in and ordered them from the US (paying through the nose) after getting to know Darynda a bit better. I wasn't disappointed! First Grave is out here next month, glad I didn't wait! :)

Ayesha (3livelaughlovelearn3) | 2 comments Was so busy over the last few days that I could only read First Grave in page-long sections.... finally Friday night though, so I read it - all the way through. So-o funny! But I think what I loved about it most, and I mentioned this in my review, too, is that the romance and the mystery both get equal time, and Charley's awesomeness doesn't diminish into "OMG I'm In Love!" just cause Reyes is in the scene. That being said, Steph, I totally agree - don't care who Reyes is, I wants him! <3

Second Grave has already been requested!

D.G. | 2752 comments I hated the end of Second Grave so I'm not sure I'm continuing the series...


message 7: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Welcome to the group, Ayesha! :D
Glad ya'll are enjoying it. She is a hoot!

I bet Darynda must be a fun person, Michelle. At least, I always think that of an author when their writing is so funny.

Yeah, my jaw hit the floor hard at the end of Second Grave, DG. So, I can understand your hesitancy. But, I'm hopeful (view spoiler)

She is Steph, I see a lot of her in Charley. She has ADD too. Have faith about the end! The rights have been picked up to turn it into a TV show, hopefully something comes of it!

Ayesha (3livelaughlovelearn3) | 2 comments So excited - just picked up Second Grave on the Right from the library! ;)
Let's be honest, here.... Uncle Bob is the best :P


message 10: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments TV show!?! Cool! But, they have to do a very good job w/casting for it to be anywhere near as good as the books, IMO.

Yay, Ayesha! Enjoy! The end was a bit of a shock. I like Uncle Bob as well.

I know! The Hollows series is being made first though. I'm hopeful? CW are doing it :)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments 'The Hollows' as in Kim Harrison's series or Amanda Hocking's?

Kim Harrison's.


message 14: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Sorry, Michelle, just now seeing your reply. Wow! Kim's series will be a TV show?! Gotta know who's been picked to play ... well, everyone! LOL!


message 15: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Darynda has new websites up for Charley and Reyes. She's also writing a new YA series called Darklight. The first book will be out in April 2012.

Midu Hadi | 1732 comments Read the first book of the series and loved it! Reminded me of Kate Daniels.


message 17: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments I loved it too, Anamander. This one is bit more on the humorous side, IMO. But, a fun read like KD.

Midu Hadi | 1732 comments Too bad I didn't fall for the male lead like I did for Curran. Does he get better and more delicious?

I definitely found myself laughing out loud. I would not recommend anyone read any installment in a public place!


message 20: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Anamander, I really like Reyes - from the start, actually, so I'm probably not the best person to answer your question. However, it is hard for any male to compete with Curran. ;)

Welcome to the group, Angela! I agree! It's a hoot. I know I snort, snicker and LOL throughout each book. :D

NetGalley is a source for advanced reader copies (e-book) for book reviews. One can request, but doesn't mean will get approved.

Lis | 3543 comments Fan girling over DJ's A Bad Day for Sunshine (Sunshine Vicram, #1) by Darynda Jones ! Thought it was awesome - more crime/mystery than PNR or UF. Worth a read!!

Also found that she has a new series The Monster (The NeverNeath, #1) by Darynda Jones that is free and she is releasing a chapter at a time on her website...
