In this installment, Charley puts on her PI hat to help her friend Cookie search for a missing woman who Cookie knew in childhood. It turns out that Mimi is one of half a dozen people from the high school who have met an unsavory fate in a short period of time. And whoever is behind it all, has a long reach, because Charley finds herself in real danger more than once over the course of her investigation.
In the meantime, the sexy and mysterious Reyes is back... albeit in pseudo-spirit form. Charley is just as drawn to him as ever. (And frankly, I think I might be nursing a major crush on him, myself.) Unfortunately, he is in deep trouble. Demons who have escaped hell are holding his body captive. They're torturing him, hoping to draw Charley out... to capture her and the portal to heaven. Charley only cares about saving Reyes. But he doesn't want to be saved. He'd rather let them kill him than risk them getting to Charley. So she is on another race against time, to save the life of the man she can't live without.
I am completely captivated by the whole Charley/ Reyes dynamic. It's so... epic. Even though they have been sleeping together since the very beginning of the series, the author makes their relationship this amazing tension-filled powder keg. I don't know how they're going to make it work, but I want them to... SO MUCH.
Charley is a phenomenal heroine. She is powerful and brave and loyal and so damn funny. The great supporting cast is back. Though I'm not feeling the love for Charley's dad right now, Cookie, Uncle Bob and even Garrett continue to pull their weight as great characters. But it's Reyes who steals the show. Seriously. I'm going to stop gushing now. 5 stars.
I "abso-freaking-lutely" loved it. Darynda Jones is a genius. This is her second book in the Charley Davidson series, and it delivered all that I had hoped for and more. The storyline is fresh, with a strong cast of characters. The writing is tight, fast paced, incredibly witty and left me wanting more.
Protagonist Charley Davidson can see the dead; in fact she is a Grim Reaper. She helps souls cross over into the light. She is also a private investigator who has been helping her uncle and the police force solve cases since she was five. Charley is one of my favorite fictional characters alongside such greats as Harper Blaine from the Greywalker series by Kat Richardson and Mercy Thompson from the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. Charley is tough, smart and protective of the living and the dead. What sets her apart is her witty, sarcastic personality and fearlessness. My sides literally hurt from laughing. Get out a highlighter when reading this, because she delivers some one-liners you will want to repeat.
Second Grave on the Left picks up a few weeks after the last novel left off. It has Charley taking on a case involving a group of high school students from twenty years ago. Her father a retired police officer is receiving threats from a recently released felon. Cookie, Charley's BFF and assistant extraordinaire, has a ghost in her car trunk. We learn more about Reyes, the supernatural, super sexy, son of Satan. He has been a part of Charley's life since birth. Reyes has saved her from near death, has aided her in learning her abilities and given her an orgasm that no mortal man can match. The interaction between Reyes and Charley is intense, fueled with sexual tension and sarcasm.Read more ›
The story this time is multi-faceted and ever moving. It even had me guessing in the end! A real treat as I am usually onto the mystery a couple chapters into a book. So, kudos to Ms Jones!
So many wonderful characters introduced here. I also loved the visits with ghosts and other supporting cast from the first book.
I am definitely a fan of this series and hooked! I will have to hurry on to the next book!
The steam factor is light. There is a touch of heat here and there but no real steam. Not a complaint just on observation.
I listened to the audiobook and found it was read by one of my favorite narrators, Lorelie King. She is always a delight and gives me happy ears every time!
I'm not done with the book yet, but it's frustrating. I keep thinking, yeah, yeah, now get back to sexy Reyes. The author has kind of a flip writing style and has given Charlie a smart-ass attitude which can be fun, but sometimes annoying because it's overdone. Charlie jokes about everything, even when she's in great danger and I would like to see her take things more seriously because if she doesn't, how is the reader supposed to. The interactions with the ghosts and the cute bail bondsman Garrett are interesting too, and I enjoy the flirting with Garrett.
I'm also tired of Reyes always being in a comma or injured to the point of death, and he and Charlie only meet in spirit and not in the flesh, usually for sex. Not that I'm complaining about the sex scenes, although more detail wouldn't hurt ("girl parts," seriously?). I'm over half way through the book and we only get small bits of interactions between Reyes and Charlie, and I hope this book and the others in the series improves on this. I want less of Charlie/Cookie and more Charlie/Reyes. The author has created a really interesting world and a fascinating character in Reyes, and he is very much underutilized. If I didn't think this series had great potential, I wouldn't bother posting a review.
