I've been enjoying these books, but in this one Charley has really gotten under my skin. She's like a 6 year old in an adult body, and that's what is turning me off from this series. If she doesn't get her immaturity together I'm done. Great storyline, writing, and narratives, but silly main character.
Help Charley grow up.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a great addition to the series. I'm really loving Charley and her stories. At this point I have very mixed feelings about Reyes. The relationship between Charley and Reyes is complex and doesn't always seem in her best interest and regardless of the pull between them, Charley discovers she has good reason to be cautious.
In this addition to the series, Charley is investigating a missing woman who she believes might have been killed by her "too perfect" husband. Also, Reyes escapes from prison, determined to find the man he was put in prison for killing after recently finding out he was still alive. Charley gets pulled into that investigation as well, which ends up bringing more danger than expected. Charley solves her missing woman case and Reyes is proved innocent but things end on a bit of a sour note as Charley has to deal with betrayal from the two men in her life that mean the most to her. It's not a happy situation and I'm looking forward to seeing how Charles comes through things as the series progresses.
I enjoyed this story very much and I love the characters. Charley is such a great character and I love seeing how she gets through her adventures. She does have more then her fair share of issues in her life and that's sometimes hard to see but she also has a resilience and good heart that you don't see a lot. I like her fun and snarky attitude which always gives the story a boost. Overall, this is a great series and I'd recommend this book (although in the series would be best...these aren't really standalones). 2 thumbs up. :D
Great book. Awesome narrator. Already ordered number 4. So looking forward to the next 4 books. The last 3 were great. Off I go to listen to it
Darynda Jones has the best sense of humor. I fell in love with this series immediately. You laugh continuously even in bad situations. I even cried during a few parts in this book because you develop a kinship with the characters. I don't usually read books more than once. This series is one I'm reading again, because I needed a pick me up. I also read her next series because her spence of humor. Lorelei king does an outstanding job of narration. I will also follow books she narrates.
Just as before these books are just hilarious,mysterious, and sassy! As I listen to it I couldn't stop smiling at all the little quips going on throughout the story. I as ways think i had it figured out , Like I am sure I'll know what will happen next but I'm super happy that I'm surprised in the end.
