First Grave on the Right

This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.
Or a diagram of some kind.
A flow chart would have been nice.
Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. 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 (like 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. But what does he want with Charley? And why can't she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?

My thoughts:
First grave on the right is the first book in the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones.  From the very first page I was hooked. This was a great story and a very different take on a grim reaper. I love Charley she is a hot mess but she is hilarious. Reyes was mysterious and scary and hot! I love how this book took a less dark and scary take on the from reaper. The souls are endearing and loveable. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
