Review: For I Have Sinned by Darynda Jones

(More like 3.5 feathers)

For I Have Sinned
(Charley Davidson # 1.5)
by Darynda Jones

For I Have Sinned is a short story following First Grave on the Right (book 1 from Charley Davidson Series). Charley is a private investigator but being a PI is just a disguise. She is really a Soul Reaper who helps lost souls “go to the light”. No, really, Charley shines like a beacon to call the lost souls to her.

The books in this series are told as a first person POV by Charley herself, but not in this novella. This story is told by a lost soul seeking Charley’s help. Also as a first person POV. Trapped in this world with an unknown, unfinished business and trying to find out what happened to her. It was nice to see a story from a different POV other than Charley’s. Seeing the side of what a ghost would feel upon meeting her, scenes that would never get old. This reaper is just hilarious with her banters, sense of humor and her overall take on life. Charley will rise up to her calling of course and this ghost will have a bittersweet resolution. A very sweet story.

I have not read this series, but Charley sounds hysterical. Can't wait to read this book.

Sounds like it would be interesting reading from the lost soul's point of view. Enjoy stories with humor. Sounds like a good read.
