Review: First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Charley Davidson, #1
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication Date: February 1, 2011
Synopsis: 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.
Verdict: This book was ahhhh-mazing!!! I loved Charley Davidson's spunky attitude and sarcasm. There were certain things she said that had me laughing out loud and earning a few strange looks from the other people in the room. I absolutely loved this book and can't wait to read the sequel!!!
Rating: 5/5 Stars
