    I generally find Darynda Jones's writing to be hilarious and entertaining reads. However, I've noticed a rather annoying trend of hers.

    She has a tendency to repeat information well... repeatedly. After reading Second Grave on the Left, I jumped right into the third book in the series only to find myself rolling my eyes in annoyance. She repeats what happened in the last book in so much detail that I could have skipped over reading that book altogether. Not to mention the fact that she spews the same facts about each character all over again in EVERY SINGLE BOOK.

    How many times must I read that Charley is a PI who got into the business because she spent time helping her father and uncle--who happens to be a cop--solve murders with her ability to speak with the departed? How many times must I read about Cookie, her neighbor and secretary who she pays too little? How many times must I read about Reyes Farrow's past with his father and the abuse he suffered in order to protect his sister? These details are filtered in repeatedly and it's quite unnecessary. I feel like readers will remember these details from book to book. Why waste from 30 upward to 60 pages rehashing old details. As amusing as it is to hear about Mr. Wong who perpetually stands in the corner staring at the wall, why must  I reread that he never speaks and she knows nothing about him? Simply put, I like the series enough but I find myself skipping over the parts that drone on and on about NOTHING or details we've been introduced to before.
