Publisher's Summary

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans.

When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously?

Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven… well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?

Here is your signpost for the most hilarious listen of the summer: Second Grave on the Left.

Also listen to the first book, First Grave on the Right

    Would you listen to Second Grave on the Left again? Why?

    Love me some Charlie Davidson. Yes, she is sooo much like Stephanie Plum...but so what. Mrs Jones admits to that, so I see no problem with it, not enough Stephanie's in the world. Lorelei King does amazing as always. Keeps me interested, minor twists so I don't KNOW what's going to happen next. Gimme more!


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Her AMAZING voices! Perfect inflection and cadence.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Charlie Davidson ALWAYS make me LOL...gotta watch that when at WalMart alone :D

    Where does Second Grave on the Left rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is right up there with Jeannene Frost and Charlaine Harris. If you love Quipy sardonic dry humor you'll love this book.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    "The second book in this series is much better"

    The second book was much more captivating than the first one. This book made me want to rush and get the third book. I think the plot develops nicely in this book and we learn more about Charlie's abilities. Although not much more so there should be very interesting developments in the 3rd book. The characters are more familiar after the 1st book and are fun.
    Can't wait to listen to it.
    The narrator is GREAT :)
    At the end of the book you get a short interview with the writer.

    If you were on the fence about the first book I would recommend getting the second one because it was much better.

    "A Great Listen!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Charlie! She is the kinda girl you'd love to spend time with...except for that whole dead reaper thing! She is sassy and sarcastic! She kept me laughing the whole time!


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I have enjoyed everything I have heard read by Lorelei King! She is a great narrator! She embodies Charlie's spunk and charm!

    "Disappointed"

    The first was soooo much better. Hated the ending of this one. Just left you hanging. On to the third and so far it is much better.

    "Another Hit!"

    Now if you are looking at this review you have probably already bought the first book and are just curious if the series continues to be outstanding. The answer is YES it is. I am loving Charley Davidson! This book is an excellent continuation of the first, funny, fast paced and leaves you wanting another!
    As usual I must again say kudos to Lorelei King for bringing the story alive!
    Darynda I am now an avid follower of Charley Davidson and am excited to see what happens to her next!

    "Great! Love Charley!"

    Loved the first book so much I dove right into the second and I was not disappointed! Reading them in order is a must! Lorelei King does a great Charley. At the end of this book Lorelei does an interview with Darynda Jones that I really enjoyed. Diving straight into the third book now!

    "Loved this!"

    This series rocks! I love a good story and a good laugh and Darynda Jones manages to deliver on both. I was so looking forward to book 3 only to be left disappointed and frustrated by Audible's inability to sell this book to Canadian customers. I hope that the third book becomes available to us north of the 49th parallel but I guess I'll have to buy the print version to be able to continue enjoying this series. You would think that in today's on-line society, this dinosaur would have gone extinct.

    "LOVED IT!"

    I was drawn to this book because Lorelei King narrated it and I love her in the Stephanie Plum books. I am so glad I did. It was great, i was immediatly drawn into the first book and had go listen to the second one. If you like Janet Evanovich you'll like Darynda Jones
