Guest Review: First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson #1) by Darynda Jones

Format: Hardcover
Published: February 1, 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Presss
Genre: Adult Fantasy, Paranormal

A 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 an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.


I was initially drawn to this book by it's GORGEOUS cover, then I read the synopsis and I knew I had to have it. Darynda Jones tells a fast-paced story about Grim Reaper Charley, who helps the dead with unfinished business so they can cross over, and manages to find herslef in the middle of solving a triple murder along the way. Charley is a snarky, smart, strong woman that you just instantly relate to and yet want to be--even if she's constantly almost getting herself killed. Combine this with her sidekick detective uncle, a bounty hunter, a Child Demon ghost, a mysterious sexy figure who visits her in her dreams, a friend who is beyond loyal, and a handful of other supporting characters and you have a winning mix! I couldn't put this book down. The writing is wonderful and I found myself more and more engrossed with Charley and trying to figure out who (or what) Reyes really is. This is one book I highly recommend buying because you won't regret it!!

Rate: 5/5
