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

    "Can't Wait for 3rd book"

    Charley Davidson is so cool. I just wish I could think of funny things to say that fast. Lorelei King is the best narrarator in the business.

    "Another great one!"

    Loved it! Just as good as the first! The plot is good! The characters are good! And it is really funny! Can't wait to see what Darynda Jones has in store for book 3!

    Lorelei King is one of the best narrators around! Love her! So glad she did both books in this series! Hope she continues with this series!

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

    This is a fantastic book that has hooked me to the series. At the begining of the first book I was not sure how I would like them. It is a little different, but the characters are fantastic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie is a fantastic character. She has a lot of spunk, but is still learning about herself and growing.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Lorelei King is always great! She does so many voices and does them so well. I don't think I have listened to a book of hers I didn't like


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

    Oh yes! I would walk around with my ipod attached to my ear.

    "Oh Yea!!!"

    Wow! This is an impressive follow-up to FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT. Darynda Jones delivered without skipping a beat. If you love the first book in the Charley Davidson’s series, you will love this new addition even more. If you are new to the series, although is not extremely important to start with the first book, I say why not? Why pass on a downright entertaining listen that is only going to enhance the enjoyment of this entry.
    Sookie, Stephanie Plum! Move over girls!! There’s a new girl in town! And NO! This is not a bumper sticker! This is exactly how I feel about this fabulous creation by Darynda Jones.
    Yet another example of Lorelei King’s talent, her perfect approach and execution of these novels is nothing short of fantastic, I think she found the ideal blend of, Mercy (Mercy Thompson series) and Stephanie Plum (Stephanie Plum series) to perform Charley’s POV, giving her a unique tone and personality, one that brings her to life better matched than our inner voice, which is close to impossible to do, but my God she’s done it with Charley.
    Charley’s inner dialogue is delightfully carried out, wholly conveying the humor and sarcasm, in a manner that yields a very likable character; simple and real and never over the top. Reye’s voice is perfect; his mysterious and sexy manner is absolutely believable and hot. She also gives the remaining cast of secondary characters a unique take not only with their voices but with their overall delivery.
    The timing, approach and pace, are perfect for the story.
    The Mercy Thompson and the Stephanie Plum series are also narrated by this incredibly talented artist and are two of my favorite series, common denominator? Lorelei King!

    "Better than the last one"

    I liked the story of the last book better. The case that she was going after was more interesting. I liked Charley's inner monologues more and the family dynamic better in this one. I'm not really a Reyes fan, it makes her come across as whiny and dumb. All in all, pretty entertaining.

    "Don't waste your money."

    Enjoyed the first book but this one is a loser. Hard to believe it was written by the same author.

    "I'm in love with Reyes"

    LOL. I am truely just drawn into these books. She has a third book out, and after the ending of this book, I'm dying to read it, but Audible doesn't have it. I'm going to have to go out and (*gasp*) spend money buying it at Amazon. I love the mix of humor, mystery, romance, and the supernatural in this book. Actually, I just finished listening to books one and two a second time.

    "Liked this twist these characters present"

    I really liked this series. Reminds me of Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum series"--which I find highly entertaining. Hope to see more from this writer
