i've only had these as audio books. best narrator ever - i love how she makes charley come to life. great addition to the series. cannot wait for book #6!
I have listened to this book 3 times since i bought it. I love how she can transition from making us laugh, to making us worry about main character, and back to making us laugh again.
I can't compare this book to any other book because the author gives a whole new spin on Death.
I don't have just one favorite scene i loved the whole book.
I don't want to give anything away, for those who have not read the book, but the scene between Charlie and the angry husband had me on the edge of my seat. Just an FYI do not listen to that part of the book while at work you will not get anything accomplished.
I can't wait for book 6
An avid audible book listener!
Lorelei King makes the entire series a winner. The whole concept of the Grim Reaper hooking up with the son of Satan is fantastic!
This particular installment was full of twists and turns as well as intense emotions. Darynda Jones has really come through on this one!
Lorelei KIng gives voice to the character of Reyes Farrow, and what a voice it is. The depth of the character comes through so clearly. This installment in the series leaves you wanting the next one immediately!
Not to spoil the ending but that was pretty intense!
I own all of this series in print, but listened to them again when I discovered them on Audible. I love the stories and main character's sense of humor. She just cracks me up! Very enjoyable, with wit and sarcasm to make you smile!
I absolutely love this series of books. They're fun, exciting and great mysteries to boot. This audiobook made me laugh out loud and then tingle with romance the next. The end of this book was heart wrenching and the end end was awesome. Oh and Lorelei King is an awesome narrator. She brings the characters to life in such an amazing way that I can't imagine reading the physical book could bring me half the pleasure that listening to her read me the books does. If you haven't jumped on the Charley Davidson bandwagon yet, I highly recommend you do. You won't regret it.
I just love these books. Great series, cant wait until the next one. You laugh, You Cry, then your on the edge of your seat then your laugh and cry some more. These books have it all. You must give them a try.
The best way to read.
Charlie Davidson's humor and flippant attitude and there is lots of Reyes, and the storyline was great...as usual.
Reyes. I think I'm in love. He is so loving and sexy, but a cold and ruthless at the same time. You never really know if he is acting in Charlie's best interest.
Charlie. She is fun, strong and does her own thing. She is not sitting at home waiting for a call from Reyes or following him around. Her feeling she is not worthy of love makes her endearing.
When Reyes kisses Cookie in front of all the women in the bar and later makes it clear that he is Charlie's man. Also when Swopes does the big reveal.
These books are so much fun. I can't wait for the next one.
Reading is my favorite past time.
Its fun and light hearted. Looking forward to book 6 for more snark, action, and romance.
This series is just plain fun. The characters are funny, the story line is great. It's just like potato chips, you can't read just one.
The reader doesn't take herself seriously, which is a perfect fit for this series.

First Thought when Finished: I love Charlie but I am thrilled we got more Cookie in Fifth Grave Past the Light!
Story Thoughts: Poor Charlie! The life of a Grim Reaper is never boring. Her love life is even more complicated that her Grim Reaper job. I am not sure how she maintains her excellent sense of humor but that is what makes me love her. Let's talk about how Cookie played an awesome role in this installment. I loved that she stepped up to the plate in only way that Cookie can (baseball bats, guns, sexy outfits, and snark). She kicked some serious bootie. The story was two-fold in Fifth Grave: the case of the cheating husband and the ongoing arson case. Both were solved but you are going to have to read to find out how. Let's just say that the stakes were higher, the emotions rawer, and the humor over-floweth!
Favorite Parts: Cookie's daughter showing us the sign language she learned. Uncle Bob getting flustered when called on his crush. The very last scene with Charlie and Reyes!
Character Thoughts: I adore Charlie, Cookie, Reyes, Uncle Bob, Garret, and Gemma! They are a great cast that just plays well off of each other. They sparkle, shine, and having amazing wit. I am hoping that we get more of the shrink in the books to come. I also was happy to see Gemma more in this installment. I think we are finally getting to really know her and I like her! Overall the characters are what shine in the Charley Davidson series. I don't think you will be disappointed in them.
Narrated By Lorelei King / Length: 8 hrs and 52 mins
Freaking brilliant! I wouldn't do this series in any other way as I think I would miss Lorelei's voice while reading. I highly recommend these on audio. As always, remember to listen to a sample before purchasing an audio book to make sure the narration works for you.
Final Thoughts: I refuse to look at the release date for the next one because I fear it is 2014 *sigh*
