I absolutely love the Charley Davidson character. I think she is what many women want to be; sexy, independent, and funny as hell. The performance just enhanced her personality. Not to mention a good mystery. Must keep reading the series!
When Charlie finds out what Reyes is... Steamy it had built up to a great scene
When Charlie is speaking to Reyes sister and finds out about his childhood
Right up there with the Night Huntress Series. This is one of those audios that I would listen to multiple times. Especially when the next book is about to come out.
She brings the characters to life. I was a little bit apprehensive at first because the voice sounded a little older than I pictured Charlie from reading the book, but she did an amazing job landing Charlie's sarcasm and humor. She did a GREAT job with Cookie - she sounded exactly like I was expecting.
I wish the narrator didn't have such a deep voice. I liked Charley's voice, but all the other characters basically had varying degrees of deep tones, women and men both. For someone like Cookie, her voice completely doesn't match her personality, imo. Also, for Reyes, his voice was way too raspy and so not sexy.
I wished the love story was actually most substantial instead of just lust-at-first-sight. We are reminded repeatedly of how beautiful Reyes was. That doesn't change the fact that Charley is obsessing over a person she barely knows and that it's creepy that she had the sentiment that she couldn't live without Reyes before even laying eyes on him in real life.
Yes, if only Reyes' character is actually beautiful. Not really for the storyline.
Because the story is read to me, I have a lot longer time to digest the story, as compared to when I read a book as fast as possible to get to the next part. Since I digested the story a lot more, I really didn't believe in Charley and Reyes "relationship". The ghost part was interesting and I liked the murder solving. Also, someone needs to give Charley's Dad a lesson for allowing Denise to treat his daughter like that.
I don't know the story just didn't grab me
ok I guess
It was ok background noise
Tell us about yourself!
The write has an incredible sense of humor!
The whole book is great, from start to finish. The quick wit of Charley is great.
This was the first time I have listened to this narrator. She is amazingly funny. She delivers the authors humor perfectly!
This book is really funny and the chemistry between Charley and Cookie, and Charley and UB is fantastic! The narration is spot on!
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
I've had this book on my wish list for a while so I decided to take the plunge. Charley Davidson is a human grim reaper who helps the departed resolve past life issues before crossing over. It was a creative story, well written with a story line that was different from any I've read. The characters are interesting and well developed. Charley has hilarious inner dialog with herself and her dead companions. That alone made me like the book as it created uncomfortable and hilarious situations. There are a couple of love interest in the story including friction with a detective that has the potential to turn into more and a keen physical reaction to "big bad" who only comes to her in her dreams. The book is really two stories in one as Charley resolves the murder of three lawyers on the same night and the truth regarding who is "big bad" and the early development of their relationship. There are many hints as to where the future books will take this story and I'll be pursuing the other Charley Davidson books to find out. If your looking for something light, entertain and is not the beginning of a series than this books for you.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
The beginning started out okay. But the farther I got into the book, the more ridiculous it became. An interesting concept, taken way, way too far. I'm definitely sending this one back. Great narrator, but she couldn't help this book.
This was so boring that I had to stop listening to it. I attempted to return it, but audible would not put the transaction through. Horrible book, horrible service.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
The foul language! Yeah I'm a big swear worder lol and Charley ALMOST has me beat! I freaking love it!
Absolutely! I need to read book 2 so I can get a better grasp of what is going on. I would continue to read from Darynda Jones because she has interesting, humorous writing. Pretty unique if you ask me.
Hmmm. The one where Charley threatens Reyes not to hurt the creepy guy and he smiles at Charley.
I don't know if 'moved' is the right word but when Reyes told Charley who he truly is was pretty neat.
This is a good start to a series I look forward to exploring. I would definitely recommend it!
