Charley Davidson Series -By Darynda Jones
Darynda Jones introduces a new fiction series combining action, supernatural and romance. Featuring Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people, 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 (i.e., murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice.
Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about a mysterious entity Reyes Alexander Farrow who has been following her all her life. Along for the ride is her best friend Cookie, a team of police officers, and spirits that allow her to solve crimes, bring justice to the dead.
While not my usual genre, I found the books engaging and face paced to keep me picking up title after title.
Currently there are 12 books in the series, with a thirteenth due in January 2019:
First Grave on the Right
Second Grave on the Left
Third Grave Dead Ahead
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet
Fifth Grave Past the Light
Sixth Grave on the Edge
Seventh Grave and No Body
Eighth Grave After Dark
The Dirt on Ninth Grave
The Curse of Tenth Grave
Eleventh Grave in the Moonlight
The Trouble with Twelfth Grave
Summoned to Thirteenth Grave
