Is haunting Charley Hes left his body because hes being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer But Reyes cant let that happen Because if the demons get to Charley theyll have a portal to heaven And if they have a portal to heavenwell lets just say it wouldnt be pretty Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do Not as good as the first book but I love Charley so that makes it okay She is always funny and that may seem unrealistic to some people but I know people like her Well my husband I don't care what the situation he will crack jokes We've maybe actually had a fight in our 26 years together twice at the most Why? Because we end up joking around when we get mad and then laugh It just doesn't work to fight with someone who is perpetually funny Just today someone was sending us groups texts kill me and I notice my husband replies with the most sarcastic hilarious comment ever and maybe a bit offensive What a man I was cracking up Charley is like this She will always find humor in the situationWhen accused of lying you suck at lyingI do not I'm an excellent liar Ask my dentist He swears I floss regularly When bleeding internally and completely beat up I hated it when I bled internally If I was going to bleed I wanted to see the evidence revel in the heroics of it all While sitting in the police station after almost being killed againTo her uncle the cop So who are the Cox cousins again?He sighed It was funny The men who kidnapped you? One of them just tried to kill you in a dark alley? Art and William Cox? Any of this ringing a bell?Of course I just wanted to make you say 'Cox' again Haha She kind of reminds me of Harry Dresden another favorite character of mineThe thing I don't get though is the whole Reyes thing He loves her so much that he had to come to earth and be with her in person and yet he is kind of a jerk to her often They got in a fight and he calls her Whore? What the hell? I don't care who you are Mister you call me names and I kick your ass to the curb And the thing where he wanted to kill his corporeal body? Just let him Especially if he calls you a whore then you should not only let him but help him He's supposedly older than the earth itself I'm guessing he knows what he's talking about But I'm not going to be getting past the whore comment for well forever actually That's a deal breaker dude Total deal breaker

    I needed a pick me up on a gloomy day in New Orleans so I turned to the entertaining snark of Charley Davidson In this installment which takes place a week after the events of book one Charley is investigating a missing person She battles with faux FBI agents hit men and of course some demons from hell all at the same as serving as the grim reaper Her relationship with Reyes also takes an interesting turn The last few pages left me wanting I love reading this series it’s a great mindless escape filled with witty banter fun characters and some romance Such fun I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and St Martin's Press in exchange for an honest review

    Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones is a 2011 St Martin’s Press publication When a friend of Cookie’s goes missing Charley is on the case However Charley has a lot going on in her personal life right now as well Charley has absorbed the fact that Reyes is literally the son of Satan But right now he is haunting her after leaving his corporeal body with the intention of dying and won’t tell her where his body is The mystery is great Very solid twisty lots of big revelations The other parts of the story are emotional and very tense I was absolutely riveted Of course Charley’s trademark snark and wit are front and center and had me laughing out loud The ending is a bit controversial which had me feeling conflicted If that weren’t bad enough the book ends with a cliffhanger Thankfully I have book three already ueued up and ready to go Can’t wait to see what happens next 4 stars

    ”If at first you don’t succeed failure may be your thing” T shirtDon’t worry Darynda Jones succeeded Twice The second time around our favorite grim reaper gets into all kinds of trouble She has three cases to solve and a messy love life to deal with The man of our her dreams is in danger and Charley will move heaven and earth to help him Who wouldn’t? Reyes is even mysterious now than he was in the first book when we knew nothing about him other than how incredibly handsome he is view spoilerWow that IS the understatement of the year Reyes is not handsome he is HA Wouldn't you like to know? hide spoiler

    “For the first time in my life I was in a shoot out A real honest to goodness shoot out with a bad guy And apparently we both sucked”While I wasn't as floored by the first installment of the series as much as my other paranormal loving brethren this one entertained While the first was drenched in humor some of it funny some of it just silly this one dials it down a notch to where an actual story and personality can start shining through I laughed aloud at least once earning me a look at a diner but the humor makes a worthy companion to the compassionate but uniue Charlie while she stumbled through simple interesting mysteriesA particular charm was the relationship between Charley and her friendassistant Cookie The two girls were hilarious blends of humor over enthusiasm random tripping and sidekick banter Garrett is still around and semi intriguing but he doesn't have much of a personality or presence in this seuel Reyes is still not impressing me other than occasional growls and threats some mild description of his hotness but other than that I could care less The author makes sure to keep talking about how important Reyes is to Charley but as the reader I'm just not feeling it yetI will say yikes on that endingnot a cliffhanger per se but she's going to have to do a lot of kissing up and downright begging to make some of that right with Reyes again If she can I have a feeling she does since the series is long and the other is clearly pushing for these two and their bondFor a Grim Reaper Charlie doesn't actually do that much There's a few ghosts to stare at and communicate with some easy crossing over but lots of uestions Is she just one of many grim reapers? Because otherwise that just doesn't make sense does it? And is the author over reaching when she reveals what Reyes actually is? I mean come on now that's pretty big pants to put onStill it was enjoyable funny hard to put down; not all the magic hits the right spot but sometimes a light paranormal is just what the heart needs

    This is the kind of book I like to pick up when I just want to be entertained and not think too hard There is a lot of fun to be had with a young female Grim Reaper who goes around chatting to dead peopleThe only difficulty I had was the character of Reyes which was very hard to understand from page to page If he really is the love of Charley's life then she can certainly pick them In this book I definitely preferred GarrettSometimes the humour tried a bit too hard but it was still amusing and Charley is certainly a strong main character Apparently she still has a way to go in discovering all her talents so the series can only get interesting I am looking forward to the next book

    I just can't anyI am a huge fan of PNR and urban fantasy really I am But this series is ALL OVER THE PLACE Charley just always has a snappy comment I for real do not get the whole Reyes thing Like there's just this attraction between them? And yet I am supposed to believe it???And just like book 1 the plot was all over the place Are we investigating someone missing or focusing on Reyes? Because I don't like the back and forthAnyways it's safe to say this series isn't for me despite everyone else loving it That's why I am the wildcard reader
