Publisher Comments:

First Grave on the Right is the smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.
 
Charley sees dead people. That's right, she 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 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.
 
This is a thrilling debut novel from Darynda Jones, an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.
 
First Grave on the Right is the winner of the 2012 Rita Award for Best First Book.

I received this book as a gift, I read the jacket and figured it would be good for a snowy boring day. New Year's eve I opened this book at about 7pm and finished it in a record 5 hours. It kept me turning pages and on the edge of my seat, while making me burst in to giggles and get odd looks from my husband. I highly suggest reading this book, you will not regret it, and you will fall in love with Charlie, Reyes, Swopes, Cookie, and the rest of the characters. They are very well written, and very believeable. I give this a 5 out of 5.

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha]:
Darynda Jones's debut novel was a smart, sexy, sassy, sophisticated breath of fresh air and utterly fantastic from start to finish!

Our heroine, Charley Davidson, is a Grim Reaper and gateway to heaven. She's also a ridiculously funny, smart, sexy, sarcastic Private Investigator and consultant to the APD with attention deficit disorder.

Our hero, Reyes Farrow, is an enigma. He's Charley's dream guy (literally), but appears to be oh so much more and reading his tale unravel was like peeling a golden onion.

The supporting characters are loveable and absolutely perfect for the story, perfectly placed and elaborated upon by Ms. Jones.

The plot of First Grave on the Right was also genius - a multiple homicide with more angles and twists than a slinky leaving me putting off meals, housework, and pretty much everything just so I could read more.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives First Grave on the Right 5 Skulls, and would recommend it to everyone!

I'm super excited for the upcoming installments of this series. It's a definite winner and a straight shot to the top of my favorites list.
