This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.
Or a diagram of some kind.
A flow chart would have been nice.
Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. And it's her job to convince them to "go into the light." But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (like murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about an entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely. But what does he want with Charley? And why can't she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?
With scorching-hot tension and high-octane humor, First Grave on the Right is your signpost to paranormal suspense of the highest order.
I picked this book up on a random whim-I saw it on the shelf at the library as I was waiting to check out. I am so glad that I picked it up! I immediately got hooked into the storyline, it was exciting & entertaining with just enough mystery/suspense to keep you wondering what you were missing and what was going to happen next. I LOVE Charley....if I had to pick a character to be friends with in real life I would definitely want it to be here..although I think I'd rather be her! She is funny & sassy, she doesn't take shit from anyone (dead or alive) and I can't wait to start the second book in the series!!
