First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

Kiki & Jules Rating: 5 stars and wish we could give more!!

If you wanted to dip into the inner most thoughts and workings of Kiki & Jules, this book would be the first place to start.  Charlie Daniels not only shares that same sarcastic personality that we are known and loved for, but if she we walking here and now we would most defiantly be BFF's with her!!

We don't know how to start with this review. Every time we stop, even for the slightest moment, to put into words all that comes in this book, Kiki and I get caught in a fitful of laughter.  With the tee-shirt and bumper sticker quotes at the beginning of each chapter, the non-stop action, and the laugh your ass off humor in between you will be unable to put this book down.

"Don't fear the Reaper. Just be very, very aware of her."  -Charlotte Jean Davidson

 Charley Davidson is not your typical private investigator.  She has a certain knack for solving the most complicated crimes for her detective Uncle Bob and the Albuquerque Police Department with no evidence.  How is that?  Charley talks to the dead!!  See, Charley is the Grim Reaper.  Not the typical one you think of when you picture the Reaper , but more like a portal for those who have passed.  You know when they tell you to go into the light, well she is that light.  In some cases the recently deceased didn't die in usual terms or has unfinished business, so in comes her PI business.  It has worked well for her so far, and has catapulted her uncle in to detective stardom in the police department.  But things are about to change!!

Charley has been having some very disturbing dreams.  And when I say disturbing, it's not in a bad way.  But the figure in these dreams seems to be incorporeal, but he feels so real and someone she has meet before.  As Charley becomes obsessed with finding her mystery man, she also is asked once again to dive into a mystery for her uncle and the PD.  With the unwanted help of the best skiptracer, and possibly one of the sexiest men alive, Garrett she tries to unravel the mystery of the deaths of three lawyers.  The bad news this time is that she will have to do some real investigating because the lawyers didn't get to see who killed them.  Can Charley help the PD, find her mystery man, and will she like what she finds?  Thank goodness for the most awesome assistant, Cookie, and her retired cop father or else Charley may not make it out alive!!

Trust us when we say this is a MUST READ!!

Happy Reading
~Kiki & Jules
