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.

Yes! I couldn't wait to start the next book!
It has it all! Love, action, paranormal activity!
I was able to see the story from the perspective of each character.
I am loving this series. Charley Davidson is quickly becoming my favorite female investigator. I've listened to the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich for years and loved them but lately those books have lost their luster. But never fear, looks like Charley is ready to take Stephanie's place. What I think makes Charley better than Stephanie is that she's smart and figures things out whereas Stephanie just falls in to a lot of the answers. Plus, Charley's just cool. This books are hilarious but it's not because Charley's doing stupid stuff. It's because Charley's sarcastic and smart. The one-liners are great. Plus, Reyes is super-hot. And, I'm holding out hope for Garrett Swopes. Charley's sidekick and neighbor, Cookie, is fun and smart. I really appreciate that Darynda Jones writes books with two smart women in them that are not reliant on the men in their lives to make things happen or get them out of trouble. I can't wait to get further along in these audiobooks.
And completely coincidental, these books are narrated by Lorelei King who also narrates the Stephanie Plum series. As always, Ms. King does a wonderful job with the narration. She's definitely in my top three narrators.
If you're looking for something fun and entertaining to get you through your daily commute or exercise routine, give these books a try and I guarantee the time will fly.
I dont normally do this bringing in the audio from my car into my home. Shut the TV off and kids gone for the weekend. I finished the book in two days time, popcorn and all. The story line up the anti with Reyes dying body with the lack there of where he hid it. She totally has feelings and shows how much they are in this book.
I dont want to say a lot but if you liked the first book get this one ASAP......
Demons - son of Satan - Portal to heaven
Same as the last Charley
OMG If I could I would do it all in one day but it took two :0)
I loved this book and the rest of the series. I think this has been one of the best audio book that I have ever listened to. The voices fit the carachters so well...especially Reyes! I recommend this to all who love the supernatural mysteries with a hot love story.
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.
