Charley is just irreverent and funny. Such a sassy Grim Reaper
Usually the sex scenes
Angel and Strawberry (scary kids)
nothing extreme, just light entertainment
I should be getting bored, but I'm not yet. That is telling.
Charley is really affected by what happened at the end of the previous book. A lot of times (in other series) when something terrible happens to the main character it's barely mentioned in the next book and things go back to normal. Darynda Jones did not do this. This book showed us how Charley was having issues getting passed what happened to her. She was scared and vulnerable and this is a side of Charley that we haven't seen before. She was still funny and sarcastic, but this book made her more realistic and human.
My name is Kira and I work as a librarian in utah. I love all kinds of books, but especially like fantasy and mystery.
Yes. The narrator just made the book for me.
Victoria Laurie's Ghost Mysteries, because it deals also with the dead and seeing/sensing them.
I have. This is one of her best. She always has great characters and unique voices.
I laughed at her spunkiness several times.
This series is wonderful! Full of mystery, comedy, romance and suspense! Who knew books about a grim ripper could be so witty!
I am really hooked!! I can't beleive how long I have to wait for the the fifth book. Once again Charley is funny and I just cannot wait until the next book comes out. Again Lorelei King narrated this beautifully. Easily one of my favorite book series
As the book opens Charley is suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after being tortured in the last book. She hasn't left her apartment or taken on any cases in the past two months. All she has done is order things from the Buy From Home channel. She is feeling helpless and vulnerable and can't shake it. This is a 360º from the independent Reaper that we have known. Her best friend, Cookie, and her sister, Gemma, try to turn her around to no avail.
Enter Reyes Farrow, the son of Satin, for one torrid night and she is back to being herself and the novel begins. She takes a case that puts her life in jeopardy again, dealing with demons, bandits and bank robbers.
She is also back to being her funny, wise cracking self with her bumper sticker and T-shirt sayings. Love her humor and I know that naming everything around her is supposed to be funny but not to me. This I find ridiculous. Previously she's named her breasts (Danger & Will Robinson), her car (Misery), and now in this book she names her brain and skull and is trying to come up with a name for her couch and her life. PLEASE!
Although I like the book I felt the author was trying to incorporate scenes from “Shaded of Gray. Doesn't this sound like it? "With a growl that sent my heart racing into overtime, he wrapped one hand around my throat and the other around my waist. From there, he led me back against the wall." The relationship with Reyes Farrow is dysfunctional but this scene doesn't go along with the independent women she is supposed to be. This does not make sense to me. I’d like to see some feelings develop instead of just raw sex.
This book does leave you looking forward to the next book when I think we/she will learn more about her powers.
I love this series, it gets better with each book. Lots of sarcasm and a good story line. Great narration.
I have listened to all four of the Charley Davidson books and have enjoyed them immensely, I have no patients with having to wait to see what happens next, dang it:) But book five is almost here Thank goodness!!! And of course I adore Lorelei King, She reads a couple more of my favorite authors. Patricia Briggs- Mercy Thomas series, Janet Evanovich-Stephanie Plum series.
I am so glad I found this series because some one wrote a review on the one of the Patricia Briggs books and said her name and how much they enjoyed her so whomever it was ( I can't remember) Thank you. If I could give these books ten stars I would they keep You laughing, intrigued, interested, and wanting more, THANK YOU SO MUCH Darynda Jones for having a great imagination.
All five star reviewers have already said everything worth knowing about this book, the author and the narrator. Buy it, not only for the verbally armed heroine, but for all the other great characters in this book. Well written, greatly narrated and best in the series so far!
This series is so entertaining and enjoyable. It is funny, the story and character is great to follow and interesting. I've listened to all four and cant wait for number 5
she has a great voice. She sounds like you'd expect Charlie to sound.
