Synopsis

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.

First Grave on the Right
Average rating
4.4 / 5
Very creepy!
July 31st, 2016
Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Even though the ghosts are following her around when they cannot cross over, but this is not the creepy part of this book. The one where Charley keeps seeing the black mass entity and making out with "it" or "him". It turns out that this entity is the boy she used to see one time. But the identity of this guy and the way he's stalking her make me cringe. I won't continue this series for this reason.

Great read not much into racey novels but, when I decided that my interest was peeked I just couldn't put it down. Charley is a spit fire of a detective that leaves you wanting to read straight through cover to cover.

Edgy, funny, gripping, this book has it all. I loved the character her sens of humour had me laughing. I rate a book on my own 'can't put it down' scale and this one had me facing the new morning bleary eyed and tired, so worth it =)
