Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones


Second Grave on the Left

Darynda Jones

If you hang around with dead people, life can deliver a whole world of trouble.

Take it from Charley Davidson, part-time P.I. and full-time Grim Reaper. The deceased find her very sparkly. Demons find her irresistible. And one entity in particular wants to seduce her in every way possible…

When Charley and Cookie, her best friend slash receptionist, have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally.) has left his corporeal body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty.

Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm's way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?


The second book in the series is just as much fun as the first. 

The dialogue is sharp and witty. Charley always has a witty comeback no matter how dire the situation. I loved the light humour mixed with the suspense and supernatural elements. 

The characters all develop a little bit more in this instalment. Charley confides in more people about Reyes and her own abilities. We see her bond a little bit more with her sister and the light and friendly flirtation between her and Garrett is still hilarious especially as it riles up Reyes to no end.

I sped through this book in no time and I am looking forward to diving into book 3 soon.
