This is not normally my type of book, but my girlfriend was reading it and kept laughing out loud. So I checked it out and saw that Publisher's Weekly gave it a starred review. That's pretty impressive, so I had to see what the big deal was. Man, I was not disappointed. This book was crazy funny and really sexy. I'm going to go back and read the author's first book now. And then I'll probably reread this one. I am normally more of a Jim Butcher and Stephen Hunter fan, but this book was well worth the effort. Not that I would read it in public or anything.

This book was amazing on so many levels, picking up right where the first left off. It is action packed and keeps you on your toes, while keeping you laughing at the main character's hilarious and sarcastic ways. Add in Reyes, the super sexy entity tormenting Charley and it is just a new level of perfection. This series is truly one of a kind and I doubt I've ever loved a female lead as much as I love Charley (in all her crazy and witty ways.) My only complaint with the book is that it seemed to end too soon for my liking, but all the good ones tend to. If you enjoy paranormal romance and a witty, sarcastic female lead, you will love this book.

Could not put it down. Great mixture of who done it mystery and suspense, lots of action, funny and sarcastic humor, mixed with some spicey romance. Can not wait for the 3rd book!

Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson # 2) by Darynda Jones This is the second installment to Charley Davidson series and this book get better and better. Ms. Jones once again delivered an outstanding story. Charley Davidson, Private Investigator and Grim Reaper continues to keep us wrapped around her little fingers. She is as addicting as the coffee she drinks!! There's another crime to solve in Charley’s world but this time, she is helping her BFF, Cookie as her close friend goes missing. As she helps Cookie with this mystery, she of course is still trying to solve her own problems with her Big Bad AKA Reyes. Continuing from First Grave on the Right, Reyes goes missing for the purpose of hiding from her, his corporeal body anyway. Reyes is definitely a mystery on his own but we get to know him a little more in this book. We see his humanity, how he acted with his sister and friend. We see him more clearly - descriptions of how he looked, how he moved. In fact, if I close my eyes now, I can see him taking a shower his back to me…. Sexaaay!! And we see how protective and how much he loves Charley. The romance is not as strong but both Charley and Reyes’ connection is evident. *sigh* Charlie, on the other hand is still hilarious. She continues with her coffee addictions, her comical banters, and the silliest comments when she’s in the most inconvenient situations. I think she may have A.D.D. Her mind goes on these tangent thoughts which I find so entertaining. Her t-shirt/shorts/bumper sticker sayings are so funny. And Charley is definitely NOT a kick ass heroine. On the contrary, she gets her ass whooped a few times here, so we get some good action. I do commend her as she keeps getting up, doing what she wants to do. We meet more of her body parts of course. We’ve met her boobs, ovaries and now all her toes! But God forbid, she would never name her fingers. That’s just crazy! As far as her REAPER side, well, let’s just say she discovers more powers and discovers what she can do with them. In the end, she will do something that Reyes will not be happy with. I’ve got to so say *shaking my head*, I don’t blame him. I cannot wait to read Third Grave to find out how Charlie will get herself out of THAT situation.

I liked both of the books in this series having read everyone from Laurell K Hamilton to Mary Janice Davidson. The lead character is awesome can't wait for her to grow more into her powers.Thank you Mrs.Jones for an enjoyable first couple of books.

Written with a twist to life and death that had me LOL regularly. I'll be looking forward to more books in this series and I hope Darynda Jones spends all her time writing.

Darynda Jones is super witty with this second book of Charley Davidson, PI, Grim Reaper. She has a very clever style of writing that will have you laughing and in suspense throughout, and the sexy bits are a major tease making you want more. The ending was also a tease for the next book and I can't wait! Make sure you've read First Grave On The Right to read first so you're caught up

In this follow up novel to "First Grave on the Right" author Darynda Jones dives right in and delivers the readers into a very dangerous, crazy, and twisted life. In this installment Charley Davidson is quite busy as a part-time P.I., helping out local law enforcement on murder cases and of course helping the dead pass through to the other side as the Grim Reaper. Charley must track down a missing woman and Reyes Alexander-Farrow-a mysterious entity that has followed her, her whole life at the same time, while still trying to stay two steps ahead of the demons that want to find him before she does. I found the novel to be very interesting. I love that Jones has this interpretation of the Grim Reaper and Charley is written with a lot of wit and sarcasm but, not over the top.

What a Fun Series. I stumbled across this series by having won the 4th book and I liked it so much that I had to get the other books to see how it all got started. It is always so nice to find a new twist to the paranormal genre with interesting characters, I especially love the inner dialog of Charley, with plenty of action, mystery and some steamy romance, and lots of demons of course. I can't wait to see what will happen next, and lucky for me I won't have to wait since I got the next book all lined up already. That's the nice thing when you discover a series a little late, not waiting for the next read.

Second Grave on the Left is book two in the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. The humor continues in this second installment of Charley Davidson. It’s over-the-top ridiculous, but so much fun. Expect to laugh out loud. Charley is one unusual character. Her personality, fearlessness, and sauciness just add to the whole thing. Cookie is Charley’s friend, neighbor, and co-worker. She is a great sidekick. She’s got Charley’s back and brings her own humor into the mix. The main plot revolves around one of Cookie’s friends, so she’s taking a more active role in this investigation. I liked seeing more of Cookie and having her around with Charley. I had fun with the different mysteries, yes, their is more then one thing going on. I also cried in some areas. I’m glad I don’t have to wait for the next book release; because the ending left me wanting more asap. The Narrator, Lorelei King, brings Charley and all the characters to life. It’s memorable. Her witty tone and colorful reading add to the listeners enjoyment and bring’s the world and characters to life. I’m so adoring the audiobooks for this series. I have to say Jones and King are a winning combo. I’m savoring the audiobooks for the Charley Davidson series. I recommend giving this series a listen. You certainly will have a good time! Rated: 4 Stars

Charley Davidson is a part time Private Investigator as well as full time Grim Reaper. She has the dead following her around all the time and now she is on a case, looking for a missing woman. Throw in some demons who want to get there paws on her, and a hotter than hell son of satan trying to seduce her and it is just another day in the life of the Reaper. Reyes has shed his corporeal body and wants to let his body die to keep the demons from finding Charley and havng a portal to the heavens. Charley isn't having it. Can she find Reyes' body in time? And can she keep the ones she loves and herself from being killed? Phew! I am so hooked on this series! I can't put them down once I start. Not only is it suspensful and full of action, but it is smoking hot and funny to boot! It keeps your attention from the beginning till the end!
