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!

Charley is also a private investigator with ADD, an evil stepmother, an almost estranged sister, a father she adores. She also have a best friend, Cookie, and this friendship is rock solid. These women would do anything for each other and I appreciate that. They accept each other 100%.
Charley names things. Her cherry red Jeep Wrangler is Misery, "but not like the book."Her sofa is named Sophie. She has named her skull Fred, her brain Barbara, her right breast Danger, her left breast, Will Robinson, her right ovary Beam Me Up, and her left ovary Scotty. She has named another body part Virginia and I'll let that soak in a minute, shall I.
In a corner of her living room, there is a ghost she has named Mr. Wong who never moves out of the corner and is levitating a few inches off the floor. Mr. Wong never speaks, never leaves the corner.
There are several intriguing men in these books, her father and his brother, her Uncle Bob, Garret, a skip tracer/bonds enforcement, agent, Donavan, a biker and his group, Osh, a soul-eating demon, and our hero, Reyes, and I'll him surprise you, shall I.
Gotta tell you there is a series and I have only read the first eight before the remainder became too expensive for me. I think there are twelve out now. I'd love to read volumes nine through twelve. I obtained the first six for ninety-nine cents and because I was hooked paid a bit more for number seven and eight but I think this series is very popular and number twelve now costs $12.99. Yikes.
None of these are standalones. They must be read in order and it does get a bit tedious when the author repeats certain aspects of the back story in each of the volumes.
So much humor, so much loving friendship, tantalizing mysteries, pathos, these novels run a huge emotional gamut and I stayed with it through eight volumes because I just had to know what comes next.
The eighth volume ends this particular story arc and introduces a new one. Most annoyingly it ends on a cliffhanger.
The eight volumes are First Grave on the Right, Second Grave to the Left, Third Grave Dead Ahead, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, Fifth Grave Past the Light, Sixth Grave on the Edge, Seventh Grave and No Body, and Eighth Grave After Dark.
- the mystery of the week - or who's "fatal attraction stalking" Harper Lowell was interesting
- things heating up with Reyes who now has an actual body that he's making good use of
-Artemis the guardian romping in the shower
- Charley saving herself and squeezing the life out of her would be assassin
-Charley naming everything including her organs
- An underwhelming Grim Reaper - for the most part she seriously has NO moves unless we want to count freezing and throwing up
- Charley showing an amazing lack of interest in finding out what she is capable of and absolutely zero motivation to lift a finger to make an attempt to find out.
- Charley actually feeling bad about the one cool (and totally justified) thing she managed to do
Despite all the torture and death, the Charley Davidson books still manage to be light, easy reading. Maybe because of the tone, Charley's kind of stupid, annoying sense of humor, her tendency to name her internal organs and her couch, and the way that things don't seem to get too "deep" no matter how awful they get. There's a nice blend of mystery, action, romance and (sometimes attempted) humor.
What I liked so much about Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet is realizing just how many people care about Charley and her wellbeing. Even her father, despite the things he did to her in the last book. Maybe even, (gasp!) Denise. Even Reyes helped her out with the stress she was experiencing.. in more ways than one.
I also really liked Charley's case in this installment because I honestly didn't know who on earth was to blame and I liked watching her figure the case out. Also, with each book, I find out more and more information about Reyes, his past, and what exactly his connection to Charley is. I love how they come together, but make each other mad and exasperated, too.
This series is so awesome. It's funny, vibrant, entertaining, romantic, mysterious, and thrilling to read. I definitely recommend it and I think that each book gets better and better. It's a great urban fantasy for lovers of anything paranormal, weird, or slightly mysterious.
