This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.
Or a diagram of some kind.
A flow chart would have been nice.

Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. 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 (like 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.

But what does he want with Charley?

And why can't she seem to resist him?

And what does she have to lose by giving in?

So I know I already read this but I didn’t do a review. I have been trying to get better about doing reviews on the books I read. So here we go! I started the First Grave on the Right on Saturday at 11 pm and was done with it Sunday evening. So just like the first time I was hooked for the first chapter. Charley is full of spunk and then some. The mystery is a normal mystery, well if you count the ghosts as normal. But Charley’s personality is just wonderful. And then there’s Reyes the mystery that surrounds him is a whole other reason to keep reading. I truly loved this book! Even if you are just looking for a good laugh you can find it here. Happy reading everyone!! ( )

This was my first audio listen in years. It was nice to change up my reading and try out an audio.

For a few years now other readers have suggested and recommended reading Darynda Jones. I enjoyed this first book in the series. We are treated to three engaging plot-lines. A mystery involving ghosts, Charley trying to figure out her Reaper side, and then the mystery into who Reyes Farrow is.

First Grave on the Right is the first book in the Charley Davidson series.

Their’s lots of sarcastic humor, clichés, one-liners and stereotypes. I liked the one-liners and humor, but at a point it got to be a little too much. The ghosts are funny and I liked meeting all the different ones.

As for Charley she’s ok, but a little childish to me. I felt she whined a little too much. She also thinks she’s all that and indestructible. It’s great to have confidence in yourself, but for me it came across as childish and too much though I am curious to see how she will grow and evolve throughout the books.

Reyes Farrow, who is he? Well he pops up in Charley's dreams and we are also treated to a few steamy moments, but they are left to the readers imagination.

And, as for the ending, it is a cliffhanger. You get some questions answered, but more pop up.

The Narrator, Lorelei King, I felt she brought the characters to life in the audiobook. Charley’s snark and attitude came out. As for the male voices they weren’t male enough and sounded a little off to me, but still I enjoyed.

I had a delightful time with the audiobook for First Grave on the Right and will be picking up the Second Grave on the Left in audio to see where things go next.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

I found the mythology of this book very interesting. I am looking forward to learning more about grim reapers and other supernatural beings as the series progresses. Charlie is a fun character - she has just the right amount of sassiness to do her job. The ghosts that she works with were all great characters and I hope that they appear again in subsequent books. Charlie does have a love interest in the book and there were a couple of steamy scenes - but I don't want to give anything away about his identity. I think that the mystery of who he is is the stronger of the mysteries presented in the book. The mystery involving the dead boy and the innocent prisoner seemed to go through the motions just to introduce the character and how she does her job. I liked how the book kept a humorous tone despite some heavy material. Over all it was a decent first book in a series. These types of series tend to get stronger as they go on and as the characters and larger story arcs become more developed. I will definitely continue this series when I am in the mood for a paranormal mystery. ( )

Je l'ai lu, mais je ne suis pas impressionné. Et je pense que ce n'est pas mieux en anglais. Je pense que je ne veux pas lire plus de cette série. ( )

FGMAMTC Blog Review

First Grave on the Right has a strong female lead, action, mystery, a bit of comedy and some light suspense. Charley is a grim reaper but not in the traditional way they are usually portrayed. After people die, she sometimes helps them with unfinished business and provides them a portal to the other side. There are often spirits of the deceased around. She's friends with several. In this book, she helps cops and the murder victims solve the case of who killed them and why. There's also a being similar to the ones she sees daily but very different. She's majorly attracted to him so she must figure out if he is he dead or alive and who or what he is. Charley is one of a kind. She can't stay away from trouble, but she never lets that keep her down. I enjoyed following along. The side characters and interactions were fun. I plan to continue the series.

"I know what kind of man it takes to get involved with something as barbarous as human trafficking."
"I get it, Swopes. He's not the kind of man you take home to meet your stepmom." I rethought that. "Wait a minute. Maybe my stepmom would like to meet him. Do you think he ships to Istanbul?"
