Charley Davidson, Private Investigator and Grim Reaper continues to keep us wrapped around her little fingers. She is as addicting as the coffee she drinks!! There's another crime to solve in Charley’s world but this time, she is helping her BFF, Cookie as her close friend goes missing. As she helps Cookie with this mystery, she of course is still trying to solve her own problems with her Big Bad AKA Reyes. Continuing from First Grave on the Right, Reyes goes missing for the purpose of hiding from her, his corporeal body anyway.
Reyes is definitely a mystery on his own but we get to know him a little more in this book. We see his humanity, how he acted with his sister and friend. We see him more clearly - descriptions of how he looked, how he moved. In fact, if I close my eyes now, I can see him taking a shower his back to me…. Sexaaay!! And we see how protective and how much he loves Charley. The romance is not as strong but both Charley and Reyes’ connection is evident. *sigh*
Charlie, on the other hand is still hilarious. She continues with her coffee addictions, her comical banters, and the silliest comments when she’s in the most inconvenient situations. I think she may have A.D.D. Her mind goes on these tangent thoughts which I find so entertaining. Her t-shirt/shorts/bumper sticker sayings are so funny. And Charley is definitely NOT a kick ass heroine. On the contrary, she gets her ass whooped a few times here, so we get some good action. I do commend her as she keeps getting up, doing what she wants to do. We meet more of her body parts of course. We’ve met her boobs, ovaries and now all her toes! But God forbid, she would never name her fingers. That’s just crazy!
