Wow, it feels like we just had a new Darynda Jones release and now it's time for another! Readers, all I can say is that I hope the next book comes out just as quickly 'cause I'm dying to know what happens next for Charley and Reyes!
After helping free Reyes and clear his name, Charley is a bit surprised to find he's taken up residence just down the hall! But Reyes as a neighbor is the least of the reaper's worries when her apartment begins to fill with dead blonde girls. Over twenty of them when they finally all arrive. Charley thinks they must have a serial killer on their hands, but none of the dead are talking and so far there isn't any real evidence. To further complicate things, Uncle Bob's captain has his eye on Charley and is intent on discovering the secret behind her odd knack for solving so many of the department's cases.
Fifth Grave Past the Light is totally awesomely fun. In fact, as much as I've been enjoying this series, I think I might have to say that this is my favorite installment so far!
It was nice to see some of the characters beginning to get a little more action, Swopes in particular. His discoveries about Charley are intriguing and sure to play into future books even more heavily. I'm also curious about Duff and Mr. Chung. I've been wondering when we'd find out more about Mr. Chung and I think it might be coming soon (I hope).
And the ending is killer. I won't give it away but I can't wait to find out what happens next.
If you're into fun paranormal mysteries with a healthy dose of steamy romance and you've yet to start reading the Charley Davidson series, what's stopping you? I suggest you run out and snatch up a few (they're super quick reads, so you might want to stock up). And yes, you most definitely have to read the books in order!
