Say something about yourself!
This series is my first supernatural series. The writing/reading is well done!! This story is funny, intriguing and keeps you glued to your headset. I'm on part two now!
Funny sexy cool
The last two chapters. Held my breath because I really wasn't sure how it was going to end.
Cross between Charley and Reyes. His evolution was handled well.
The reveal of Reyes and his past.
Hard to review without giving too much away. Let's just say the moment the book was over, I downloaded the next in the series. Will be happily working my way through them.
I loved this book and the rest of the series. I think this has been one of the best audio book that I have ever listened to. The voices fit the carachters so well...especially Reyes! I recommend this to all who love the supernatural mysteries with a hot love story.
Love Lorelei King and the way she brings life to the characters. I am buying the second book as soon as I finish this review.
cook, lawyer, knitter, mom, grandmom
I'd recommend this to someone who enjoys supernatural stories
Good sex scenes
Fun descriptions of the ghosts who hang around her apartment continuously.
Good job portraying her problems relating to normal people with varying results; Cookie and her,dad, versus her stepmom and some of her uncles colleagues.
Sometimes, her independent chick voice gets a little too much. She's 27, not 15, and this isn't her first trip out. It can get in the way of the story. The whole reason for her existence is deliberately unclear at this point, but I could easily lose interest if I have to listen to too much cutesy.
The listen was quite witty. I was not impressed by the premise, it was a lot like a TV show. Think Medium or Crossing Jordon.
No. I would rather recommend "Beat the Reaper" much better.
I guess but there are a half dozen TV shows with this premise.
I was really worried when I decided to download these books. First off, I love the Stephanie Plum books and this series is directly compared with the Plum books everywhere I look. On top of that, they're narrated by Lorelei King (the same lady who narrates the Stephanie Plum books). Recently, I'd had issues with listening to the latest Eragon book because Gerard Doyle narrates both them and the Septimus Heap books and I couldn't get the Septimus Heap books out of my head when I was listening to the last book. So, this audiobook had a lot of strikes against it before I even started. But I shouldn't have worried. Lorelei King is an amazing narrator and she amazing here. Yes, I did hear some of the same voices from the Stephanie Plum books but it wasn't distracting and not once did I find myself getting the series mixed. So kudos to King and if you're considering listening to a book narrated by her - have no fear. She's amazing.
Now onto First Grave on the Right. I loved it. It was fun, light-hearted, sexy and fast-paced. The dialogue is witty and sarcastic and Charley is a wonderful main character. It's so much fun listening to her dealing with the ghosts that pop in and out of her daily life. There's so much potential with Garret and Reyes as main characters. Yes, the story was a bit cliched at times but when I was laughing out loud at the book, I can handle the cliches. Hmmm, should I listen to the second book in this series or the next Night Huntress book first? Decisions, decisions.
It was hard for me to keep an interest in the story. After a few tries, I put it down. I'm reading the reviews of others for the next books in the series. I'll try one more to see if the series improves. If not, I won't get any more. fingers crossed.
the characters are fleshed out and plots just out of normal range.
dare i say ALL of janet evanovich's books????
lorelei king has a wonderful voice and uses it to best advantage in all she does.
Similar style to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. The main character is a strong woman with tongue-in-cheek humor. For instance, she has an oriental man (ghost, spector, spirit?) floating in the corner of her living room, facing the wall. She greets him every morning with, "Hello My Chan" (or whatever she calls him). The man never moves, speaks or pays any attention to her yet she greets him every morning and says hello every evening. No one else can see this guy, btw. This is definitely a easy read, quick witted and entertaining. I'll be watching for more books by this author.
Memorable? Its an entertaining book w/many quick-witted quips. No one "moment" was more memorable than the next. This is not an "Ah Ha" book but light, entertainment.
