Never underestimate the power of a woman on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high. (T-shirt)
Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.
When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help. Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.
Charley Davidson is at it again in Fifth Grave Past the Light, the sexy, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny fifth installment of the New York Times best-selling series by Darynda Jones.

These are the best books I've ever came across I just can't stop listening. I'm getting discouraged because I'm so close to finishing them and I don't want the story to ever end. Love me some Charley Davidson! and Reyes!
Hearing Lorelei King reads out Charlie's musings. Hilarious...
I think Reyes, but then Cookie is one hell of a character. She is the only one who can work with Charley without dying of a heart attack.
Angel. With his Spanish accent, and always asking if he could see Charley naked.
Wonderful as usual. It was smart funny and light. This is something I will listen to again.
I can stop listening to these books! I live the story line and the narrator is one of my favorites. I purchased the first book just because Lorelei King was the narrator!
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I'm so very pleased with this series and this was another great addition to it. Charley has a lot of stuff going on in this story as she investigates an arson case as well as a serial killer who's 27 victims have all shown up in Charley's apartment. And as normal, these are just the main cases she's working on and there's always more going on in the background. Things in the paranormal aspect seems to have spiked a bit as we get some unexpected news from Garrett. Also, there's a danger coming for Reyes that has Charley reeling. Now that he's moved in next door he's even harder to resist and Reyes makes some headway in showing Charley some of his good aspects.
The main cases get wrapped up in the end but the danger to Reyes isn't concluded. Now that things are settling down a bit it's nice to see Reyes being a bit less threatening and more sweet to Charley. Things aren't perfect between them but they are improving. Charley is getting more abilities (or maybe I should say that more of her abilities are being discovered) but I do wish she had a bit more control over them. Overall this was a great story and moved the series along nicely...I'm looking forward to the next book. I'd recommend this story/series. :D
