About the Book:

First Grave on the Right is the 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.
This is a thrilling debut novel from Darynda Jones, an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.
First Grave on the Right is the winner of the 2012 Rita Award for Best First Book.

My Review:
As I was preparing for my trip to a book convention where one of the featured authors was none other than Darynda Jones, I realized that I wasn't familiar with her books.  This astonished a few of my friends. Since I was driving to the convention in a couple of days, I ordered "First Grave on the Right" on Audible, thinking that I could listen to it as I drove. I downloaded the book onto my phone and then tested it to make sure it downloaded accurately. After listening for just a few minutes, I realized I was hooked. I could not put this down. I could not wait the two days for my driving trip. I needed to listen NOW. Much to my husband's dismay, I listened from start to finish and then started searching Audible to download the next book in this series.

Charley Davidson is snarky, sassy and tough! She also sees dead people. I absolutely love this character!

Darynda Jones has created a series that is totally entertaining! Great writing, great characters, great storyline! I can't wait to read more from this author.
