First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
2011, St. Martin's Press
Series: Book 1 of Charley Davidson

Synopsis: 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 read: Heard good things about the series

What impressed me: I'm going to have to stop saying that I don't generally enjoy ghost-based books if people like Darynda Jones keep writing books as good as this was. I seriously loved First Grave to the Right. Charley is flat-out awesome and the writing was hilarious in an extreme fashion - which never interfered with the small moments of sadness. Add in a great mystery and some sexy moments, and you have an absolutely fantastic read.

What disappointed me: Not a thing.

Recommended: Extremely. This is not a book you'll want to miss.

Continue series: I can't wait to get the next one.
