    Charley Davidson is like white chocolate You either love it, or you think it s an abomination of nature I love white chocolate, I love Charley Davidson, and I am not ashamed.She s got such a great narrative voice she is, dare I say it, a lot like me A lot of deadpan humor A lot of inappropriate thoughts at the worst possible times Well, I was kind of kidnapped, though not really kidnapped so much as led away A hand shot to her mouth to squelch a gasp God, all this sounds so awful when I say it out loud, I complained I whine than a Goth with a blogging fetish It s really not that bad I actually grew up rather happy I had lots of friends They were mostly dead, but still Charley is special without being a special snowflake Is anything broken Uncle Bob s voice had softened My eyelids, I think I can t open them I heard a soft chuckle If it were anyone else, I d say eyelids can t be broken But considering the source A weak grin spread across my face So I m, like, special He snorted as he pressed gingerly here and there, testing for broken bones and the like Special wouldn t even begin to cover it, my dear Charley is a Grim Reaper She can see the dead and take them through the other side As you can well imagine, it must have been pretty fucking rough g...

    I think it s time someone let the author of this book into a little secret Ms Jones, stringing together a thousand odd wisecracks does not make a novel That is commonly known as a Joke Book In fiction, we like our wisecracks accompanied by an actual plot, plot development, sub plots and character development Say it with me, Sto ry line You know that teen movie trope about a nerdy guy trying to be popular by joking around with the jocks Only his jokes always sound rehearsed and fall flat, and he fades away into obscurity First Grave on the Right reminds me of nothing so much as that guy, trying desperately to be funny so people would be inclined to like him better and overlook his general lack of charisma The book is filled with gems like Isn t that a bit like the pot calling the kettle African American and If I were edible, I d be a fruitcake. no, of course I haven t heard that one before, ha ha.The only reason this book is getting two stars is because it actually managed to surprise some involuntary laughter out of me at some points Here, for example On the plus side, I did learn that Martians should never try to become human just to drink our water Since Martians didn t exist, I figured they were part of some bizarre Rocket Man ana...

    You know, I love a well written, well constructed, complex urban fantasy world as much as anyone I love beautiful writing, jam packed plots and wild twists that I never would have seen coming But sometimes, just sometimes, I have a real need for something lighthearted, nonsensical, silly and sexy Like the Bridget Jones version of urban fantasy Paranormal chick lit one might say First Grave on the Right is a girls night in watching your all time favourite romcom whilst eating ice cream In your pajamas It s pure, cookie dough flavoured fun It won t change your life It won t introduce you to a new way of thinking But, if you re anything like me, it might just hijack your mind and take it to happy land for a while Here s what this book has a sarcastic, witty and hilarious heroine a sexy, mysterious guy a murder mystery and humour bursting from every page Oh, what the hell, why use words when I can say it with gifs And seeing as I m currently re watching Buffy and it seems appropriate, I m going to say it with Buffy gifs.There s some And a touch of And a whole lot of And a bit Note to readers you might want to turn your google filters on before searching sexy gifs Unless, of course, you don t I liked First Grave on the Right so much that I bought the rest of the series all at once something I just don t normally do I can see this being the kind of series that I ll need a regular fix of because it s delightfully addictive I m now getting started on Second Grave...

    First my over all impression of this book Then I ll give some detail as to why I feel as I do I picked this up because it got a whole passel , of 4 and 5 star ratings here My over all impression of the book It s crap.Why do I think that Well at first I was thinking it would be okay if not one I really liked It opened with an account of the protagonists dream where she was having intercourse with a hot shadowy figure She made sure to tell us she d had an orgasm.I sighed and went on I can live with a little overt sex in a book if the author seems to think that it s important to the story I can usually skim through it if it gets really graphic And if it s really for the story you won t be getting a heavy or graphic sex scene every second page This was , in your face than graphic It was a short intro passage and I figured it was to tell me what a kick ass female protagonist we had.Except that about every second page our female P.I Grim reaper had to refer back to her hot dream She had to be sure and tell me us that she d never had an orgasm in a dream before She had to tell us about her shadowy lover s body parts etc.I sighed and moved past a lot.There is a bit of humor here but I didn t find the character as funny as some didor as funny as she finds herself.Sadly, for me anyway, I did see the beginnings of an interesting story here, but the writer j...

    First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones is a 2011 St Martin s Press publication Uproariously funny and Unique This is the first book in the Charley Davidson series I ve noticed a few of my GR friends have read books in this series and it seems to be popular, but I was not sure about diving into a paranormal urban fantasy series after burning out on the genre during the Twilight craze So, I initially passed on it But, I am craving something otherworldly right now, so when I noticed a new installment in this series was coming out soon, and picking up a little chatter, I decided to see if this one would be a good fit for me If this first book is any indication, then I d say I could fall completely under the Charley Davidson s scathing, testy, and snappy spell.Charley is a private investigator and a grim reaper By grim reaper I mean she is able to see dead people and her job is to lure them into the light To convince them, she often has to help them find peace by discovering who murdered them or finally getting justice on their behalf With the help of her uncle, a deceased former gang member named, Angel, and her best friend, Cookie, Charley solves crimes, and helps the dead pass over But, in her personal life, she s coping with an unseen entity that visits her dreams in a super hot sensual way Finding who and what this entity is that has followed her around her entire life is her most fervent wish But, as they say Be careful what you wish for I ve read...

    3.5 ish stars Don t fear the reaper Just be very, very aware of her Well, personally, I have mixed feelings towards the reaper.Confused Befuddled Puzzled Disconcerted Call it what you like, it s still the same While First Grave on the Right was a gripping and funny story, I had some issues with it, especially with Charley.Let s take it from the start Just a girl, a few ghosts, and the entire human race What could be easier The creepy guy we call the reaper is not that creepy after all Nor a guy Charley Davidson, a Private Investigator that always, always gets into trouble, has a second, important job she ferries souls to the other side, and sometimes helps them deal with their unfinished business, meaning she investigates their murders In First Grave on the Right, three lawyers were killed because of a case and Charley, her Uncle Bob and the rest of the APD search for the men responsible For Charley, it means getting beaten up, falling from warehouses, almost getting killed etc etc while she tries to solve the mystery that cloaks the sexy man that visits her dreams and now becomes a part of her reality And when I say sexy, I mean really sexy Reyes Farrow.Because perfection is a dirty job, but someone has to do it But we ll talk ...

    So I was browsing in the New Fiction shelves at my library the other day you know, just like every bookaholic does and I came across debut author Darynda Jones First Grave on the Right I flipped through it, thought it sounded interesting but decided to put it back for the moment, since my bag was already giving me a shoulder cramp Just as I was putting it back on the shelf, I noticed the blurb on the cover The best debut novel I ve read in years Hilarious and heartfelt, sexy and surprising An absolute must read J.R WardAnd my first thought was, J.R Ward Sold So, twenty pound, shoulder cramping book bag in hand, I headed to the library s check out and what a great decision that turned out to be.Our main character, Charley, has been gifted or cursed, depending on how the onlooker chooses to see it with the ability to see the dead since birth But that isn t all she does Charley is the grim reaper She helps the dead pass on to the other side At a very young age Charley began helping her father, a currently retired police detective, solve murder cases Today, she continues this line of work as a private investigator, working with Uncl...

    Garrett chose that moment to join the conversation I appreciate your forethought, he said, his tone distant, as if his mind were elsewhere Not as much as your fore parts, but still I twisted around in my seat to face him My fore parts, as you so ineloquently put it, have names I pointed to my right breast This is Danger Then my left And this is Will Robinson I would appreciate it if you addressed them accordingly After a long pause in which he took the time to blink several times, he asked, You named your breasts I turned my back to him with a shrug I named my ovaries, too, but they don t get out as much Now, if that little quote didn t convince you to read First Grave on the Right, nothing I write will, either There s a new generation of UF authors who are slowly but surely rising to the throne The names that instantly come to mind are Nicole Peeler, Jaye Wells and now Darynda Jones I think it s a lot harder to succeed these days than it was for Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs or Ilona Andrews, for example It has become very difficult to find something new and exciting to read in the ocean of new UF novels Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we ve seen it all and a completely ...

    Don t you just love it when the majority of your friends love a book and keep telling you to read it but for some reason you don t get around to it Then when you finally dothe only question that begs asking is why didn t I read this sooner That s this book exactly But bewareif you do not like snark, do not read this book It is loaded with snark with snark on top and even some snark sprinkles but any girl that names her boobs Danger and Will Robinson and her ovaries, Beam me up and Scotty is A OK in my book Charley is a private investigator and works closely with the Albuquerque police department namely her Uncle Bob who is a Detective but she is also The Grim Reaper and her main job is to help dead people pass to the other side This is a bonus for Charley in that she can often talk to victims and help solve their crimes I really enjoyed Charley and thought she was hilarious It was great that there were things she didn t know or understand and that she was doing a lot of things on the fly The one thing that was a bit strange was that she is described as being sparkly as in the light she gives off being the Grim Reaper aka portal It just gave me a weird Twilight vibe Charley...

    HA What a crazy fun read Definitely not my usual fare, and honestly, I almost threw in the towel than onceprior to the half way point, but then Reyes, his difficult family life and the BIG BAD caught my attention.

    PI Charlotte Charley Davidson is a 27 year old beauty She drives a jeep named Misery in honor of the master of horror has a cop for an unclean ex cop for a dad, and an evil step mother Most importantly, though, she has very special abilitiesabilities not everyone believes SHE SEES GHOSTS.talks to ghostsand even acts as a portal to the other side.

    Most of Charley s other worldly friends are pleasant and just want helpanswersor to deliver messages to those left behind, but one presence in her life is dark, creepy.a huge cloaked figure who sweeps in and around her.and another...
