The fourth in this fun and sexy New York Times best-selling paranormal series.
Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.
In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.

“If you enjoy Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, you will certainly enjoy Charley Davidson!” (Suspense)
When you can happily go without sleep and even contemplate missing mealtimes then that's when you realise just how a great listen can affect your life. Every single word that was penned by Ms Jones was done with such skilled precision that there wasn't one wasted.
I thought books 1, 2 and 3 were good but this one, well it was just awesome - I only wish Audible had a special star rating for such well written book like this one. Every chapter was entertaining, funny, tense and quick witted and within them every paragraph held great characters ready to entertain and enthrall you in an amazing plot that has more twists and turns than a roller coaster.
I also found the tee shirt and bumper sticker jokes at the start of each paragraph really funny.
Worth a credit? Oh YES and more....... for her next book Fifth Grave Past The Light released in July 2013, I'm afraid I'm prepared to sell my Grandmother on ebay!
Absolutely delightful! From the beginning till the end I enjoyed it. It's the best out of four books about the reaper Charlie. I laughed out loud through the whole book and at one moment I even cried. Reader totally gets the character and I can't wait for the next installment .
Book four is just as good as all the rest of the books and the only part that makes me sad is I have to wait for months for the next book. A lot of questions are answered in this book but a lot are still up in the air. Charlie is still her snarky self and Reyes is back and so drool worthy. Darynda Jones definately in my top 5 author list. I cannot wait to see where things go from here. A whole new world has opened up to Charlie in this book and things should get even more interesting.
Lorelei King does an awesome job with narration (as always). She really makes you think several people are reading the book not just her. She is one of the best narrators out there today.
If you have not read these books you really must take a chance and start at book one. You won't be disappointed. All four books keep you hooked from start to finish and then leave you wanting more, more, more, more!!
I don't buy the print version so have nothing to compare it to.
Each story reveals unknown depths. This one is no exception to that rule.
The breaking down of the barrier boxes ... it was time to replace the memory and clear it out.
I thought the first book a little slow but I am very glad that I continued on! Definitely a different take on this subject by the author.
This was better than the last one. Having said that, Charley still kind of annoys me. I understand that no one is perfect, not even in fiction but sometimes she whines too much or gets too snarky, and I like snark. She's flawed, I get it. Flaws make for good writing, I get that too. The problem is that she's the dumb girl in horror movies who goes down to the dark basement while you're screaming at her to turn around- every time. She's never made a good decision. While no one is perfect, I have a hard time believing that someone can be that stupid- even the dumbest people I know manage to get it right once in a while. Having said all that, I like the supporting characters, I'm glad Swopes is okay and I will be getting the next one because I can't wait to see where his storyline goes. I hope to see the Bandits again. UB and Amber are awesome, and I also hope to see Quentin again. Lorelei King is a great narrator.
All of them are great; I love the direction this one is going with the development of the relationship. Will love to see them get married and have a child and they face off with his daddy dearest the DEVIL.
It is a cross between the Anita blake series and Kim Harrison series.
She is great . I would not want to see anyone else being the narrator with this series.
When he told Charley that he would not be with her if she loved another. I also found the whole book funny, sexy and could not put it down, finished it in one day
MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT JOB!!!! keep them coming will get everyone put out no matter if it is book 1 to 101. LOVE IT.
The fourth installment to the Charley Davidson saga is just as good as the first book. I was saddened that a lot of the questions I had in the first book still remained unanswered in this fourth book. If you have like any of the previous Charley Davidson books you'll surly enjoy this one well.
Charley has a lot of demons to work thought both metaphorically and physically unfortunately this book is extremely predictable therefore I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. There were also times that I felt Darynda added unnecessary snark to Charley that made her more annoying.
Lorelei King, as always, brought the characters to life with her fantastic narration.
I would recommend this book and I am yet again... impatiently awaiting the next book.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
Okay, there is such a thing as dragging a good thing on for too long!
In the begining i loved the sexual tension and the star crossed situation that Charlie and "beau" find themselves in but now....
Get it on Already!!!
Still enjoyed the book though, very sixth sensish
Too many books, so little time. 5 stars=Great, 4 stars=Good, 3 stars=Okay, 2 stars= Sucked, 1 star=Awful.
Good fun and lots of laughs. Darynda Jones writing gets better with each book. Characters are developing more. Even though it hasn't been that long since I read the others, I wish I had reread them because I must have forgotten stuff that had happen in the other books that is mention in this book. Defiantly a series that needs to be read in order. I enjoy Lorelei King voice, she has such a way of making the main character wicked and fun at the same time.
