First Grave on the Right Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With scorching-hot tension and high-octane humor, First Grave on the Right is your signpost to paranormal suspense of the highest order.

This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.

Or a diagram of some kind.

A flowchart would have been nice.

Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. And its her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (like murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams shes been having about an entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely. But what does he want with Charley? And why cant she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?

 “Plenty of action. And lets be honest—the sex is pretty hot, too. —Library Journal (starred review)

“A true paranormal princess has been proclaimed. Bravo Ms. Jones, you have just hit the big time.”—Night Owl Reviews

“Charleys wicked exuberance and lust for life will appeal to fans of MaryJanice Davidson and Janet Evanovich.”—Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The grim reaper gets a shiny cool makeover in Jones's blazing hot debut, a paranormal romantic thriller. Charlotte Jean 'Charley' Davidson, a 27-year-old PI and consultant for the Albuquerque, N.Mex., police department, exists on two planes — one for the dead, the other for the living. As the grim reaper, she escorts the recently departed 'into the light.' In her dreams, she's haunted by a 'dark, seductive stranger,' whose warmth suggests he's something 'not dead.' In the real world, Charley helps her APD detective uncle, Bob Davidson, investigate the fatal shootings of three lawyers who were representing a client accused of murder. Meanwhile, Charley finds herself oddly attracted to the devilishly handsome Reyes Farrow, a convicted criminal in a coma. Fast-talking Charley's wicked exuberance and lust for life will appeal to fans of MaryJanice Davidson and Janet Evanovich and maybe fill a hole for those mourning the recently canceled Ghost Whisperer. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
