New Paranormal Must Read!

There is a hot new voice in the paranormal world this month -- Darynda Jones! Her debut and first in the Charley Davidson series, First Grave on the Right, is a hilarious addition to the genre and definitely a must read for paranormal mystery and romance fans.

Charley is a grim reaper. Has been all her life. She can see and speak to the dearly departed and help them pass into the light. This ability has come in handy throughout the years -- she used to help her dad, a cop, with some of his more difficult cases, and now she runs her own PI firm, still consulting for the local police. When the ghost of a dead lawyer pops up in her apartment screaming murder, Charley is on the scene in no time. And so are the cops -- and two more dead lawyers! All three worked for the same firm and are convinced that one of their recent cases is the reason for their untimely deaths. The case in question -- a local man accused of, and convicted for, the murder of his nephew. Meanwhile, Charley has some personal issues affected her work, namely a sexy spectre that's invading her dreams -- both asleep and awake.

First Grave on the Right is the perfect opener for a new series: a great new heroine with a snarky sense of humor and a fun cast of supporting characters. Not to mention a well thought out plot and killer ending. It leaves you wanting more after you turn the last page. Another author to add to the must read list!

Second Grave on the Left is set for release in August and I can't wait!

Many, many thanks to Cheryl over at Cheryl's Book Nook for giving Jones's debut such a glowing recommendation! You were right, Cheryl! I loved it!
