Publisher's Summary

The fourth in this fun and sexy New York Times best-selling paranormal series.

Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.

    "AS SOON AS I HIT 'PLAY' I WAS TOTALLY ENTHRALLED!!"

    When you can happily go without sleep and even contemplate missing mealtimes then that's when you realise just how a great listen can affect your life. Every single word that was penned by Ms Jones was done with such skilled precision that there wasn't one wasted.

    I thought books 1, 2 and 3 were good but this one, well it was just awesome - I only wish Audible had a special star rating for such well written book like this one. Every chapter was entertaining, funny, tense and quick witted and within them every paragraph held great characters ready to entertain and enthrall you in an amazing plot that has more twists and turns than a roller coaster.

    I also found the tee shirt and bumper sticker jokes at the start of each paragraph really funny.

    Worth a credit? Oh YES and more....... for her next book Fifth Grave Past The Light released in July 2013, I'm afraid I'm prepared to sell my Grandmother on ebay!

    "Loved it!!!"

    Absolutely delightful! From the beginning till the end I enjoyed it. It's the best out of four books about the reaper Charlie. I laughed out loud through the whole book and at one moment I even cried. Reader totally gets the character and I can't wait for the next installment .

    "Okay. . ."

    This was better than the last one. Having said that, Charley still kind of annoys me. I understand that no one is perfect, not even in fiction but sometimes she whines too much or gets too snarky, and I like snark. She's flawed, I get it. Flaws make for good writing, I get that too. The problem is that she's the dumb girl in horror movies who goes down to the dark basement while you're screaming at her to turn around- every time. She's never made a good decision. While no one is perfect, I have a hard time believing that someone can be that stupid- even the dumbest people I know manage to get it right once in a while. Having said all that, I like the supporting characters, I'm glad Swopes is okay and I will be getting the next one because I can't wait to see where his storyline goes. I hope to see the Bandits again. UB and Amber are awesome, and I also hope to see Quentin again. Lorelei King is a great narrator.

    "Awesome Series"

    Let me just say, i have never laughed while reading a book as with this series.
    Other than the story is amazing and the characters are unique, the jokes and the naming of every single body part of her is amazing... loved that she named her scull and her brain as well.

    I had this series in my wish list for couple of months, and i saw the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th book being released and then i bought the first one.... damn i shouldn't have done that... i thought it was going to be a repeat to other books and so on.... but no this is an awesome book and a 10X Awesome series.

    have fun

    "This is the BEST series ~ the Books AND the narrat"



    So, to begin with, lemme just give you a little back ground on this here series ~ it's slathered with awesome sauce, ya'll! It is one of, if not THE best series I've started in the last 2 years ~ and not only is Darynda Jone's writing STELLAR, in the case of Charley Davidson, the narrator in this series,

    Lorelei King, IS Charley Davidson! She actually makes her breath & come ALIVE!



    So, okay, enough raving ~ We start off Book 4 in the Charley Davidson series w/ Charley on the outs with her father, who tried to have her arrested to keep her 'SAFE', and recovering from an attack from a seriously psycho dude that just happened to also be Reyes Farrow's, aka The Big Bad, aka The Son of Satan's, real life step dad. Who Reyes had been jail for murdering. (But that's all book 3, which you NEED to READ!) So Charley has a little bit Fear going on ~ she might be the Grim Reaper, but that baddie had a HUGE knife he was trying to kill her with. So she's taken up Hoarding & The Home Shopping Channel, and moved out of her offices over her Father's bar. And she hasn't taken a new case in two months ~ She's not only The Grim Reaper, she's also a PI...AND she helps her Uncle UB solve cases for the APD. She's got ALOT going on.



    So when a new client seeks her out and seems in desperate need of help, Charley ventures out of her apartment building...to find that a lot has happened in the two months she's been holed up. Reyes has taken up cage fighting, Demons are possessing people all around her, familiar looking bank robbers keep showing up, and her damn land lord rented out that apartment at the end of the hall she's been trying to rent since she moved in!



    I LOVED this book! Charley is at her best ~ she makes you LOL more times than I can begin to share, and OH, there are quite a few scenes where my heart strings got tugged in this one...and she GOT me on case! I can usually guess some parts, but nope, not this one. I enjoyed every second of this book ~ and Darynda has this awesome habit of starting each chapter w/ a saying or slogo off a T Shirt...they're AWESOME!! Like..."If I wanted your opinion, I'd remove the duct tape" ... or " Insanity doesn't RUN through my family, it strolls through, takes it's time, gets to know everyone".



    And Lorelei King ~ She is such a pleasure to listen to! There is this awesome character, Rocket, a departed who can track whether every person in the universe is alive or dead ~ Rocket is special. You can just see his face lighting up when he sees Charley, hear it in his voice...and the little sister of one of Charley's Uncle UB's cops, who she laughingly calls the "SS", who has this singsong kinda slurry voice...even when she's calling Charley a Bish...



    I cannot recommend this series, and this book, enough!

    If there is only ONE audio book you buy this year, this should be it!

    "The series gets better with every book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet to be better than the print version?

    I don't buy the print version so have nothing to compare it to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Each story reveals unknown depths. This one is no exception to that rule.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The breaking down of the barrier boxes ... it was time to replace the memory and clear it out.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the first book a little slow but I am very glad that I continued on! Definitely a different take on this subject by the author.

    I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.

    "Love this series."

    I love this series. I love that Charley is such a smart ass, even when everything is down, she is able to fall back on being a smart ass. Charley has an extremely rough life. If I were her, I would've curled up in a ball and you couldn't get me out.

    Charley does start off the book in that type of mental state, but pulls out of it. I'm still amazed at her father, which ended the last book by trying to have her arrested. This book he is even worse. I have no idea what is wrong with this guy.

    I'm still not sure what I think of Reyes. One minute I think he is an okay guy, then the next, I just want Charley to send him back to hell.

    Overall, I LOVE this series. I just can't get enough. I can't see where Charley goes next and what she will learn about herself and her powers.

    "OMG !!!! I love this series more, more more!!!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet to be better than the print version?

    All of them are great; I love the direction this one is going with the development of the relationship. Will love to see them get married and have a child and they face off with his daddy dearest the DEVIL.


    What other book might you compare Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet to and why?

    It is a cross between the Anita blake series and Kim Harrison series.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is great . I would not want to see anyone else being the narrator with this series.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he told Charley that he would not be with her if she loved another. I also found the whole book funny, sexy and could not put it down, finished it in one day


    Any additional comments?

    MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT JOB!!!! keep them coming will get everyone put out no matter if it is book 1 to 101. LOVE IT.

    "Typical Charley snark"

    The fourth installment to the Charley Davidson saga is just as good as the first book. I was saddened that a lot of the questions I had in the first book still remained unanswered in this fourth book. If you have like any of the previous Charley Davidson books you'll surly enjoy this one well.
    Charley has a lot of demons to work thought both metaphorically and physically unfortunately this book is extremely predictable therefore I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. There were also times that I felt Darynda added unnecessary snark to Charley that made her more annoying.
    Lorelei King, as always, brought the characters to life with her fantastic narration.

    I would recommend this book and I am yet again... impatiently awaiting the next book.
