Review

The madcap supernatural romp is sharp and edged with emotional tension and drama, all of which make it well worth your time and money Romantic Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Better to see dead than be dead.

—Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper

Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in self-pity...until a woman, who may or may not be insane, shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her. Meantime, Satan’s son, the devilishly handsome Reyes Farrow, is out of prison—and finally out of Charley’s life. But Reyes’s absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While Charley has a world of other matters to contend with, including a series of arson attacks throughout Albuquerque, she can’t quite keep away from Reyes. Especially when it looks like he may be the arsonist. Where there’s smoke there’s fire…and just as her life seemed to be returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime and punishment—and the devil in blue jeans.

Everybody loves Charley!

“Smart, wickedly hilarious.”—Publishers Weekly

“A true paranormal princess.”—Night Owl Reviews

“…and let’s be honest—the sex is pretty hot.”—Library Journal

Anyone else want to join me to protest the new, not improved Charley Davidson? We need signs! Seriously, Ms. Jones? BRING BACK CHARLEY! Warning: I've got smelly magic markers and I know how to use them!

I was so anxiously awaiting this book, but it was beyond disappointing. It was like getting a new puppy and then watching it get hit by a semi-truck. Okay, maybe a semi-truck is too harsh. More like a Ford Taurus. But, still, DISAPPOINTED!

When I started reading the series, I was blown away by the witty, sarcastic, badass Grim-Reaper-slash-Private-Investigator called Charley Davidson. I have pretty high standards for memberships in my "Kickass Bitches Club" but Charley made it in, no questions asked.

So, what the hell happened!? Charley went from hella kick ass to "glorified battered woman."

After seeing all the great reviews on here, I'm left with the opinion that there are two schools of thought: those who will see this as a racy story of romance and those who want to kick Reyes' in his son-of-satan nuts.

Which camp are you? Take the following quote from Chapter 18 (Charley regarding an "encounter" with Reyes):

"With a growl that sent my heart racing into overtime, he wrapped one hand around my throat and the other around my waist. From there, he led me back against the wall."

Did you find that romantic? If so, then you're going to love this book. Did you want to throw something heavy? Then welcome to my world.

I am just.not.okay with this role and I am even less OK with the fact that it's happened to someone who was so independent. This does not make sense.

I know I should be rambling about the plot, but I'd have to hire a private investigator to find it. It was kind of like...

Format: Hardcover
We open with Charley, still dealing with the effects from the events that ended book 3, Third Grave Dead Ahead. Her way of dealing? Spending money she doesn't have on anything and everything she sees on late night, home shopping channels. Her apartment is overflowing with boxes, a home she hasn't left in 2 months and this is about as broken a Charley as we've seen. It takes an ass kicking/intervention (involving baked goods and margaritas, Cookie-style) from Cookie, Uncle Ubie, her sister and even Reyes to get her moving again. That and the fact that she's broke and needs to work. So she takes a case, trying to help a woman being terrorized who has no support from her family and no friends. This is just one of many cases Charley has her hand in as she helps this woman, she's also helping her Uncle track an arsonist, she stumbles into a case about a group of bank robbers and she helps find missing persons; just another typical look into Charley's crazy life.

With everything going on between Charley dodging demons and all the cases she's working, the story never feels jammed packed with too much stuff. Charley is dealing with many different storylines, but her crazy thought process and sarcasm makes it all the more fun. Seeing Charley unsure and scared at the beginning of the story was a change and it made her seem more human than we've seen so far in the series. That's always the thing that surprises me in every book. I get so caught up in Charley's antics and her off the wall humor, there's always a scene or two in every book that hits an emotional chord, and it lends such a great balance to her character and the series. In this case, those moments come courtesy of her dad, who she's been estranged from for two months, and the woman who is being terrorized, Harper.

I have to say, I was really looking forward to this book. I'd been caught up in the other three and thought this one would at least continue on at the same level. Sadly I was wrong.

After finishing it, all I can conclude is that the author had a deadline but not much interest in this one. Without recapping the storyline (many other people have done that here) the basic reason for my low review is the following:

(1) It was just too cutesy - too many one liners, too many "jokes" about naming everything. It was amusing in the first book but the repetitive commentary in this one about what to name this item and what to name that one got old after page one. The flippant one liners were just too juvenile and silly to be funny at all. We get it - she's sarcastic - you don't have to beat a reader over the head with it though.

(2)There was no character development for Charley at all and no real resolution to the anger she felt at the end of the last book. Sure she was a shut in and shopped a lot. Oh and she counted go near that one spot in her apartment but nothing was done to show any real emotion or change in her in this story.

(3) Plot - there was barely a plot in this one. It was a random story that it seemed like the author was making up as she went along. Some people have said they never saw the ending coming. I think that's because the author didn't either. No hints as to what would end up being revealed and the final resolution and reason for the client's terror was just poorly thought out and weak. It almost seemed like Ms. Jones really didn't have a better plot for Charley now that Reyes couldn't be the "bad" guy anymore. As for the demon part of the plot - MEH - wasn't very interesting or well played out.
