From the Back Cover
Why do some guys have to be so damned devilicious?
Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back! And she's drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because every time she closes her eyes she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the sexy son of Satan who's part human, part supermodel, and all fired up. Yes, she did imprison him for eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing-persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hell-bent on murder when the devil's son just won't give up on his plan of seduction…and revenge?

I'm still loving this series despite the lack of romance. This series has been very entertaining with great humor. I'm starting to really feel sorry for Charley though. She's not treated very well by people, even her loved ones. On to the next book.
OVERALL SERIES DESCRIPTION: Heroine, Charley Davidson, Private Investigator and Grim Reaper. She's a portal for the dead to pass through to heaven. Hero, Reyes Alexander Farrow, Son of Satan and portal to Hell. Since Charley can see and talk to the dead, she has helped her former cop father and current cop uncle solve cases. The main focus in each book are the cases Charley solves with the help of her best friend Cookie, her uncle and the dead victims. The side focus is the romance between Charley and Reyes and the impending war with the demons that is predicted.
I always enjoy a healthy dose of Charley, and of course, Reyes and Cookie, too! In Third Grave Dead Ahead, there was a lot going on, both in the overall story arc, with Charley needing to understand exactly what she is, and all she can do. A missing person she needs to find, as well as getting in and out of the asylum now that there is a biker club in residence. One of the things that always strikes me when I read a Charley Davidson story is the strong friendship between Cookie and Charley, and I love how snarky they both are! They can always make me laugh, even when they find themselves in dire situations.
And then, of course, there is Reyes. And he definitely has his own agenda in Third Grave Dead Ahead! Only it takes a long time of Charley to figure this out, and when she does, it’s almost too late. And on top of having more than one investigation going, Charley has to deal with her family – especially her dad – who wants her to quite as a PI and do something that is much safer for her. She really doesn’t have that many people on her side, and I was really angry towards the end! Not at Charley, but at some of the men in her life, I would have gladly help her kick their butt and get them out of the way there.
The overall plot moved along nicely, and while I now know quite a bit more about Charley and her abilities, I have a feeling there is still much to be learned! Both because Charley doesn’t know everything herself yet, and because just enough hints were dropped to make me quite anxious about the next instalment, which I really need to get to very soon.
Written in third person point of view, but still mostly from Charley’s perspective, and in past tense with sarcastic and humorous dialogues, there is never a dull moment in this story. I need to get my browser window open so I can one-click the next book :) and you should get to one-clicking too, this series is amazing.
Then the pain. The torture, the betrayal and then the knife dug further. It was too much. I would have screamed, but Charley is different, she just started a earthquake. Poor girl. Broken. They broke her. The end, what a twist. Aw, Artemis you are awesome.

As always a witty, action packed story that leaves you wanting more. There were parts of it that had me in tears but I loved this book.
