What I'm Reading - Seventh Grave and No Body

Have y'all heard of Darynda Jones?  She is the absolutely brilliant author of the Charley Davidson series, or, as I call them, the grave series.

Her newest book just came out, Seventh Grave and No Body.

Every single book has me laughing out loud, sometimes with tears streaming down my face.  Charley is a private investigator and the grim reaper.  She gets herself into more trouble than anyone you know.  She rivals Lucy Ricardo in her escapades and her best friend, Cookie, is a regular Ethel to her Lucy.

Now I know this is the seventh book in the series, so I thought I'd share the info on the first book here, and give you the links for the rest of the series as well.  They are totally awesome books and I believe you will truly enjoy reading them.

The first book is called, "First Grave on the Right."  One chapter in and I was hooked.

Here's what Amazon has to say about it...

First Grave on the Right is the smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.
Charley sees dead people. That's right, she sees dead people. 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 (i.e., 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.
This is a thrilling debut novel from Darynda Jones, an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.
First Grave on the Right is the winner of the 2012 Rita Award for Best First Book.

I am not a person to reread books, but I've reread this series many, many times, and have loved it each and every time.  Just in case you want to catch up, here are links to the rest of the series as well...

Third Grave Dead Ahead (Charley Davidson Book 3)

If you read them, I'd love to hear what you thought!  These books are so much fun!!!



  1. I'll have to check into those. It sounds good. I have a question - the extremely hot entity - that doesn't turn into sex between the pages, does it? Thanks. =) Looks like the commenting will work just fine!

  2. Sounds like I need to check these out. I have not read a single book, except scriptures, all year.
