Seventh Grave and No Body

The series just gets better and better. Charley Davidson, aka Grim Reaper, is beginning to discover just what she is capable of doing.  In the final scene with Rocket Man, she’s also finding out there are consequences. It’s difficult to say much without spoilers.

Again, I was in the position of knowing certain details about 1/2 a book before Charley. In the case of Darynda Jones’s books, that’s not a bad thing. This becomes a matter of when and how will Charley find out and how will she react.

Cookie, Amber, The Dealer and Reyes are revealing wonderful dimensions to their characters. While Charley is still the smart-mouthed and sassy driver, the readers are discovering there is much more complexity to the story line than was originally presented in First Grave on the Right. 

Once again, Ms. Jones has sucked me in, kept my interest, and when it was over, left me begging for the next book.

Fifth Grave Past the Light

Fifth Grave

I am so excited! Today a new book in the Charley Davidson series, “Fifth Grave Past the Light,” came out and was nicely delivered to my Kindle at a little past midnight. I managed to stave off the compulsion to start reading until about 3:00 AM. Yay, me! That is a testament to my willpower.

I was only able to read about three chapters before I had to go back to sleep for a couple of hours. I had to work today. I really should have taken a vacation day so I could just read.

I’m hoping to get more reading in this evening after supper. Depends on the cats and their needs. All cats have needs, no doubt about that, but sometimes by boy Pyewacket is needier than most. I might use duct tape as a disciplinary tool with men but not with cats. I just have to practice patience and use my selective hearing.

I had a bit of a dilemma the day before Fifth Grave came out. I finished the books in the Graveyard Queen series and had one day to go. I didn’t want to start another book because I would have to drop it 1/2 way though. Wait even a day to read Fifth Grave? Seriously? Not in this reality!

I ended up reading a bunch of samples I had on my Kindle.Amazon sending samples is a wonderful idea Love it, Amazon. Many thanks!

After reading, I moved the sample into a “To Buy” collection, a “Maybe” collection or deleted the it altogether. Two birds, one stone and all that. I read the samples I’ve been meaning to, cleared out some of the Kindle dead wood and I didn’t delay my date with Charley and Reyes. I win!

So I’m off to get dinner dins and then it’s Charley, Reyes, Vishous and me for the rest of the night.

Kitties, you are welcomed to join me, but shhh! Mommy’s reading!
