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

    "Loving this serise"

    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.)

    "Another Fun-Filled Hit! Definitely Credit Worthy!"
    If you could sum up Second Grave on the Left in three words, what would they be?

    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!

    "Not As Good As The First!"

    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.

    "The Fun Continues!!"

    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.

    "Second book really builds upon the first."

    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.

    "There actually was a grave in this story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they had read the first book in the series. I don't feel you can jump in without reading the first book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The family dealing with each other towards the end.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    I figure Cookie is a two pack a day character


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

    Yes, cause I work 10 days


    Any additional comments?

    The author talked about her influences for how she created Charley, and I liked all of them.

    "Nothing special"

    I didn't really like this book but I didn't hate it. Mostly the only issue I had is the writing style is... Let me see if I can explain this properly: when you read a lot of brain candy-type novels (lighthearted romance or fiction) you tend to skim them fairly quickly because for every 10 pages there is only one solid page of real information or character development.

    These books (at least the first and second) bear those same marks. It's the written equivalent of a Darma (a la Darma and Greg) character - such a free spirit, but such a boring free spirit who can't speak very well. I might have enjoyed this book more if it were something I was reading and that I could skim. Fast forwarding isn't really the same thing.
