Overview

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson Series #4) by Darynda Jones

Welcome to the world of grim reaper extraordinaire, Charley Davidson. Try as she might, there's no avoiding her destiny.

Sometimes being the grim reaper really is, well, grim. And since Charley's last case went so awry, she has taken a couple of months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above . . . or at least get dressed. It becomes clear something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she's insane. But the more they refute the woman's story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, is out of prison and out of Charley's life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved.

Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans in Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, the hilarious fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling series from Darynda Jones.

Darynda Jones is a fantastic author! I love the characters that she has created. Start with the first book in this series and you'll have a hard time putting any of these books down. Love the humor in them and her quotes at the beginning of each chapter.

It took me awhile to get into Fourth Grave unlike the other books in this series. At the beginning of this book I was afraid the magic (the verve, the energy...) was slipping from the series and was having a hard time reading it. I'm glad I pushed through that and got further into the book because WOW! It was great!!! That's all I'm saying because if I say anymore it'll have spoilers and I don't want to do that to anyone.

I love each book in this series. It is laugh out loud funny. Great mysteries. Wonderful and original characters. I simply adore Charley. Reyes...is one of my all time favorite alphas. I love them together. The ending us great. Cannot wait for book 5 and 6 and book 7 and book 8 and so on....

Darynda has done it again. Charley is always getting into trouble, and this time it's doubled. It was great getting back in touch with all the characters. Charley and her crazy antics, Cookie who is always ready to back her up, and of course Aunt Lil and the ever present Mr. Wong. We get to see more of Donovant, and man...that guy can really turn up the heat! I love him and hope we get to see more. And of course, who can forget the ultra HOT, sexy, blazing, smoking, SINfully delicious REYES. That man can do things to me that...well, let's just say, cold showers DO NOT work! Now, Swopes, I'm a little scared for him. We don't get to see much of him in this one, and when we do, he is different. Not unexpected considering what he has been through. I think there may be trouble ahead. A few new characters like Margaret, Fred and Barbara are thrown into the mix. *snicker* More twists and turns that make your stomach do flips! Oh, we find out who moves into Charley's building. Loved it! I can't wait for Fifth Grave Past the Light now! With the way this one ended, I forsee lots of action in Charley's future. Well, at least that's what my crystal ball says. But sometimes, I can't trust her. She has been known to lie. So, to wrap this up...should you read it? Really, you're going to ask me that? *voice catches* You don't know me at all! OF COURSE you should read it! And I'm gonna stand here with my arms crossed patting my foot until you run out to get it. I received this book for review from the publisher.

A good story helped by some humor to make the reading fun. Disappointing that by the fourth book we don't really know much more about Charlie's abilities than at book one.

I love love love this series! All of the main characters are back for the continuing saga that is Charley's life! Look - the first book is still my favorite, but Fourth Grave definitely kept me reading well into the night! Charley and Reyes are smokin' hot! Cookie, UB, and the rest of the cast are still great. Not enough Garrett for me this time around but after the heart attack I thought I was having at the end of book 3, I may have needed a little space from him :) Sad thing is that now I have to wait for the next! Darynda Jones does such a good job keeping the reader interested in the story but still wanting more (I hate this - as now I have to wait for the next book!) I would definitely recommend this series if you want a little adventure, a little sex, and a whole lotta laughs! For sure start with the first though - you NEED all the back story. And if you like to listen to your books - I would highly recommend with this series too! Lorelei King narrates and she is AWESOME and brings Charley to life!

Loved this book and the other three before it. I wish I could forget them, just to relive the enjoyment of reading them again. Five stars this book has it all: comedy, action, mystery and romance. The main character is one of my all time favorites. The author has created a great series!

For some reason the good books flash by so quickly. Darynda Jones always leaves you wanting the next book. Fun, full of action and seduction, with a plot twist you will never see coming. Read the entire series from the beginning for maximum satisfaction.

Four books in this series and the author delivers with each new installment; plot, amazing characters, humor and sensuality. Reyes is one of the hottest male characters in popular literature. Thank you, Darynda, for another engaging look into the life and adventures of Charley!

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet is book four in the Charley Davidson series. I'm not sure why I took so long getting back into this series but I'm glad I came back. I forgot how DJones adds so much snark and hilarious lines into her writing. Charley Davidson is a private investigator that is also the grim reaper. As a grim reaper, she can see ghosts and they can pass through her. After the events in the previous book, Charley is dealing with PTSD from being attacked, she's been trying to cope by staying sequestered in her apartment for months. That finally comes to an end when she takes on a case for a woman that has being mentally tormented since childhood and has no clue why or who is behind it. We also have the hunky son of Satan (aka Reyes) that is out of prison thanks to Charley. He's staying in his human form for the most part this book, which is interesting. I just want him and Charley to hurry up and get together. Though I will be interested in seeing what the consequences are if/when they're together. Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet is a hilarious addition to the series that had me guessing whodunit while Charley was solving her case. With Charley coping with her attack and trying to move past it I felt bad for her but it was nice to see her character dealing with it like a normal person would have to. Her family and friends are there to support her in any way that they can and while Charley is a strong leading lady, she needs to rely on them to some extent. If you haven't started this series yet, I highly recommend it to anyone fond of Urban Fantasy with demons and tons of humor mixed in.

At first I thought that this book was written for a younger audience. Once I got into the series I found that because of the humor it only seemed it was for a younger crowd. The humor is actually deep and under the surface shows great sophistication. Truly a enlightening series.

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet is the fourth installment in Darynda Jones's paranormal mystery series titled: Charley Davidson. My review is going to be short and sweet. If you've stuck with this series up to this point then I'll just tell you this one is more of the same fun: Our amazing heroine: Charley (aka grim reaper) continues to solve mysteries via her private investigator gig. She still has her hilarious sense of humor and that sexy, sexy Reyes hanging around (and in her pants!). The funny one-liners continue to set up each chapter (my fav part!), and the end keeps you interested in reading the next book. Read the book synopsis for details, but if you have enjoyed this series so far (like me), then you'll like this one...you may even like it a little more. Check it out! My favorite quote: “I meant to behave. There were just too many other options." The Charley Davidson series includes the following installments as of January 2016: #1-First Grave on the Right #1.5-For I Have Sinned #2-Second Grave on the Left #3-Third Grave Dead Ahead #4-Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet #5-Fifth Grave Past the Light #5.5-Shimmer #5.6-Glow #6-Sixth Grave on the Edge #7-Seventh Grave and No Body #8-Eighth Grave After Dark #8.5-Brighter Than the Sun #9-The Dirt on Ninth Grave #10-The Curse of Tenth Grave #11-Untitled

I don't spend much time reviewing books, and I am a hard sell. This series manages to literally make me giggle out loud to havibg tears in my eyes. The main protagonist is so REAL with that special "far more than meets the eye with more to come" quality. There is some serious heat in this book as well, but the romance certainly doesn't define the story. Fantasy, demons, beings from other planes but so very human, horror and the chaos that can be life sprinkled just right with wit. That humor and portray of strength though I know of course it's fiction is just what I need right now. Jones rocks these books.
