A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, errant wives, missing people, philandering business owners, and, oh yeah…demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead.
Now, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, will Charley be able to defeat the ultimate evil and find a way to have her happily ever after after all?
With so many series, by the time it hits book eleven there have been a couple that haven’t been that spectacular. But I have enjoyed every book in the Charley Davidson series. I continue to laugh, and sometimes even shed a tear or two.
And I love that the story is evolving so much. What started out as a mystery in every book with the grim reaper trying to solve it, has changed into a mystery with a powerful god trying to help people. Even with Charley being as powerful as she is, her sass helps to lighten up the situation.
We get to enjoy and learn more about all the usual characters, except Rocket. But we do get to spend more time with his sister, so I did like that. I think Strawberry could be a very interesting character, with just the right amount of creepiness in her.
In this book we get to learn more about Rhys and his childhood, as well as get entangled with a mystery that involves child abduction and cults. I don’t want to say too much because you need to read it, and enjoy it for yourself. I will say that there is another cliff hanger at the end, but I don’t mind those. It just makes me want to read the next book even more.
With some series you can read the books out of order, but with this series, you really should start at the beginning with First Grave on the Right. There are just so many little insights that you will miss, if you don’t.
