Second Grave on the Left

Charley Davidson #2

Reviewed by Melanie on May 24, 2017


Charley Davidson is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. She’s funny, witty, and always getting into trouble. This book is no different, with a missing, not just any woman, but a friend of Cookie’s from high school, Charley is on the case.

Unfortunately for Charley, some demons are on her case, torturing Reyes, trying to draw Charley in. A grim reaper’s job is never done and this book does a great job mixing mystery with humor. My husband and I laugh and laugh through Charley’s antics and rhetoric. The narrator bring each character to life, and we throughly enjoy each of them.

We’re excited to jump into book three and see how the loose ends tie up.

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans.

When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can't help but wonder what Cookie's up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously?

Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman's name. Mimi's husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He's left his body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven... well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?
