A 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.
Why I Read This Book
Since I’m super picky about my audiobooks, I knew I had to find the right one when a week of lots of driving came up. I had read a few good reviews on the Charley Davidson books and thought they would be the perfect blend of mystery, sexy times, and just enough intrigue to keep my interest while driving.
I really liked this one. I was looking for something that was fun and sexy, and just intriguing enough to keep me interesting. Driving in the car can get really distracting (obviously, what with the moving of the giant machine and the paying attention of the other machines on the road), so I was pleased that this one hooked me right away. It wasn’t overly difficult to follow along with, which meant it was easy to pick it up each day where I left off.
