Publisher's Summary

Third in the award-winning paranormal series that’s “hilarious and heartfelt, sexy and surprising.” (J.R. Ward)

Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil’s son just won’t give up?

    What made the experience of listening to Third Grave Dead Ahead the most enjoyable?

    The Narrater brings Brilliant writing alive. Keeps you on your toes and very upset when it ends. Can't wait for the next. Had me laughing in the grocery store people thought I was crazy.

    "Keep the series coming!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Third Grave Dead Ahead the most enjoyable?

    I love love the plot and character development in each book of the series..the narration by Lorelei King (also of Janet Evanovich' Stephanie Plum series) is spot on!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    I enjoy the conflict of the supernatural and loves between the characters


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Loreli King gives great body and depth to her characters so you always kno whose speaking. Her narration is correct to all of her characters.


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

    I could listen to this book in one seating,,,but, i don;t like it end...so I don't

    "Enjoyable paranormal equivalent to Stephanie Plum"

    Often when authors are compared to their well-known predecessors, readers/listeners are disappointed because they are expecting a specific product from the new author. For me, Darynda Jones and Janet Evanovich's work provide what I like to call, "dessert fiction." Sometimes I'm in the mood for a bold and cynical female lead who has a hilarious and familiar inner dialogue. Dessert fiction seldom features a mind-blowing, thought-provoking plot, and sometimes that is exactly what I'm seeking; a chance to escape into a world where the protagonist has bigger problems and crazier friends and family than those in my own world.

    If you are in the mood for a laugh or a guilty pleasure, you'll enjoy any of Jones or Evanovich's books, and both are performed beautifully by Lorelei King.

    If you are in the mood for something deep, you may want to put this on the shelf until you are craving whimsy.

    "I'm Ready for Book Four!"
    Would you listen to Third Grave Dead Ahead again? Why?

    I would listen to it again, but not while driving...that way I could write down all of the witty one liners and laugh at them over and over.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    **Spoiler alert**
    I got the warm fuzzies when the tough motorcycle gang dudes decided that Charley was okay with them.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice inflection brings humor to the book that I may have only glanced over.


    Any additional comments?

    Okay, Darynda...we're ready for your masterpiece!

    "Interesting series!"

    I really like this unique series! It was a take we haven't really heard before. It was a fun read! I really like the characters and enjoy watching this all unfold. I can't wait to read book 4. Start at book 1, but all are good reads!

    "Disappointing ending - again"

    The first book was sooooo funny. The second was a disappointment because of the ending. This, third book, I thought had great promise and it was an entertaining book until the end. Darynda lets you hang at the end for the next book. I want some kind of closure. This is twice in a row with the same problem ending; so I will not be buying the next book and this is why I gave it a mediocre rating.

    "Oh my and on my some more"
    Where does Third Grave Dead Ahead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was anticipating this book for quite some time and I cannot wait until the 4th book is released.


    What other book might you compare Third Grave Dead Ahead to and why?

    The night huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. The witty and sardonic characters are wonderfully entertaining.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I absolutely love Lorelei King!


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

    Indubitably

    "She's back..."

    The sassy PI is back. In Third Grave Dead Ahead Charley is trying to deal with the fact that Reyes doesn't want to see her. But can you really blame him after the events of Second Grave on the Left?

    Charley is running around all over time hopped up on coffee and days without sleep trying to solve another missing person's case. While Charley tries to find out what has happened to the missing wife of a doctor she has run in after run in with Reyes when she falls asleep. Which is why is she tries to void falling a sleep. Although the encounters are sexy, she can also see that Reyes doesn't really want to be called to her.

    More emotional tug of war between Charley and Reyes. They want each other but don't like that they want each other because they still do not trust the other one 100%.

    Charley is slowly starting to see what she is capable of with her powers. Things are a brewing and I'm not talking about all that coffee that she and Cookie drinks. As a bigger picture starts to develop through out the series it only brings up more questions. And I can't wait to read/listen to the next book, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet.

    Only time will tell what the fates have in store for Charley and Reyes. And if you are a fan of snark filled mysteries with hotter than sin anti-hero you need to check out Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series. I highly recommend it on audio. Lorelei King does an outstanding job bring the sassy Charley to life.
