Publisher's Summary

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the 12th installment of Darynda Jones' New York Times best-selling paranormal series, The Trouble with Twelfth Grave.

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings - some corporeal, some not so much - as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she's not uncovering a murder. This time she's covering one up.

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a start-up PI venture - the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford - out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican's inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it's time to let loose her razor-sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she's loved for centuries. So the question becomes: Can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she's worked so hard to protect?

More Charlie Mania

I really love this series- it's on my first tier of books to buy. Be aware that this is not a standalone book. This is not a criticism, just info. There's a lot of dialogue and action that is leaving me behind because I didn't have time to reread/listen to the series before release, but you can be sure I will happily start over at the beginning. The series is that good. Charlie comes off as so goofy when you first start the series, then you start to hear the underlying story, the real suppressed emotion and issues that constantly lay simmering. I guess that's what happens when you're the Grim Reaper in the flesh. Also a God.

I really appreciate the Tshirts and memes at the beginning of each chapter - I find myself sharing them with friends. I have to watch where I'm listening because, guaranteed, I'll have to LOL. Jones does an incredible job of balancing the laughs with the struggle, tension and heartaches. And King's narration is superb! Recommend this book and the whole series.

Missed the Mark - Most disappointing in the series

I am a Charlie fan, but this book really missed the mark. Much of it was retelling the previous 11 books and the ending was disappointing twice over. I have loved this
series but not this one, and can't understand the high reviews from other readers. Hoping book 13 redeems the series.

Not sure...

Adventurous story with Charlie once again leading the way. This time Reyes is the one afflicted with an internal battle. Charlie once again solves multiple mysteries. Though the story was entertaining it felt the overall story didn’t advance the overall theme of the story until maybe at the very end. It’s a story that I’m not sure that I would recommend to a friend or not or listen to again. The narrator did a good job!

Darynda Jones does it again!

I absolutely love the Charley Davidson series. The characters are full of life and Charley is such a snarky character... you have to love her! There is never a dull moment and I usually have a smile on my face as I listen. Lorelei King does a magnificent job on the characters voices and her enthusiasm always keeps your interested. Darynda keep pumping them out, I can't wait to see how Charley gets out of her new predicament!

Another hit!

Just like the rest of her books, Darynda Jones left me to wait out the long months in anticipation of the next one.

If you've never read these books, start in order. They just keep getting better and this book is no exception. I found myself hoping the book would never end. Sadly, it does. This is my AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Fantastic preformence by Lorelei King as usual.

Charlie is hilarious as usual! If you never listened you are missing a top 10 read. Charlie and the crew have to stop a malevolent god who also happens to be her husband.
Nonstop action and comedy keep you listening.
