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?

Love to listen to books. Do tons of driving and they keep me sane.
Enjoyed the first book and I really like the story. Very enjoyable and found myself laughing out loud many times. Charley has some very interesting thoughts and loves to express herself. Lorelei King does a great job in narration.
I want to find books that flirt with and then seduce me. I want reads with lasting power, leaving me breathless and aching for more!
I'm a big fan of this series. Book two held my attention just as much as the first and I'm salivating for book three. I simply love the main character. Charlie is sassy, spunky, and quite the spitfire. If I had to meet the Grim Reaper, she's exactly who I'd want to meet! (And the performer who reads the brings life to the characters in the Audible.com version is simply marvelous. I frequently wipe tears of laughter from my eyes.)
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Once again, Second Grave on the Left: Charley Davidson, Book 2 is a laugh-out-loud hit! Charley is adorable, and Cookie, along with a slue of funny ghosts, contribute to a motley group of mixed up, zany members of a great PI team! And, let's not forget Lorelei King! She is a major contributor to the story's success, as she brings all of them to life through her narration.
I love these books, and hope that Darynda Jones will be inspired to continue with many more “Grave Sites” in this series. Definitely Credit Worthy! Enjoy!
I enjoyed the first book in this series but the second book just did not live up. The characters became way too "abnormal" and the story a bit too corny. I made it about half way through and it just failed to hold my interest. However, if you really enjoy vampire and scifi character love stories, you will probably like this series.
I really liked this book it's fun to listen to. The people (and ghosts) continue to grow and learn more about themselves and those around them. While the end of this book was kind of sad, I have to get the next one to see what happens. Over all this seems to be a fun series and I can't wait to see what happens next.
I sure would try another book by Darynda Jones. She has such a great sense of humor!
Would love to see this book as a movie! How hilarious it would be!
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
the humor! the narration is awesome too.
stephanie plumb with the wit of the main character
i have listened to her read Patricia Briggs and i think her performance in this series is the best, she delivers sarcasm like no other!
something from her t-shirt quotes! just try this series, they get better each book!
the humor, mystery, and romance of these books are sooo worth the credit. sooo funny! i love the twist on the main character.
Because it is a fun story and I started to grow attached to the characters
Developement of Characters and fleshing out some side ones
Yes but I didn't mind having it split into two parts, it gave me an additional interview with the author which was nice
This was a great second book. The storyline kept moving along at a quick pace and kept me guessing as to who the bad guy was and why. I thought this book was better than the first because all the setup was already done. I liked the snarky humor and loved the t-shirt and bumper sticker tags at the beginning of the chapters. The narrator was fine but I'm still not convinced she was a perfect match for the character. I did like her voice though.
Yes, if they had read the first book in the series. I don't feel you can jump in without reading the first book.
The family dealing with each other towards the end.
I figure Cookie is a two pack a day character
Yes, cause I work 10 days
The author talked about her influences for how she created Charley, and I liked all of them.
