Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it's time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn't come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.
Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she's used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.
Charley Davidson is back in Sixth Grave on the Edge, the sexy and suspenseful sixth installment of the New York Times bestselling series by Darynda Jones.
Oh my, quite a lot happened in this book. Excuse me, I need a moment to digest what I just read. Let me just say, this book is full of surprises!
I have to say this book is all over the place, so first thing first, we got to learn a little more about the secondary characters, Angel and his mother’s story have been quite sad yet sweet, Cookie’s relationship Ubie were long overdue that Charley couldn’t help but to offer (butt-in) her assist, little Amber is also growing up fast before our eyes.
And last but not least, Charley and Reyee! As always Charley makes me laugh out loud throughout the book, I suppose some can say she’s immature, but I am biased on this, I love Charley’s character that I just think she is damn funny. So, can Reyee be anymore perfect?! Ok, maybe he is not perfect, but he is damn sexy to the n degree. Although I feel a bit annoyed sometime with all the women throwing themselves at him, stalk him and etc.
So the ghost in Charley’s apartment isn’t an ordinary ghost after all, anyone else find it odd that Reyee didn’t notice anything “different” about this ghost?
Weird break-in situation, two masked-men threaten Charely then left a picture as a clue for her to investigate…what the hell.
I am not sure the purpose of having Charley’s high school nemesis back in Charley’s life. We were given a brief background story between Charley and her high school nemesis/ex-bff, Jessica. Whom by the way are also quite obsessed with Reyee. I wasn’t surprise by Jessica’s role in this book. I though it was obvious. Needless to say I am not looking forward to see how Jessica will be tormenting Charley in the next book.
There is a new player in town, and he is quite an interesting character. I look forward to learn more about his role in Charley’s life.
To be honest, I totally saw the ending “surprise”, at some point in the series I’ve hope this would happen.
Interesting turnabout with the prophecy and Charley’s destiny. I look forward to see it all unfold.
Two new Charley Davidson books released in the same year?! I can’t wait!
Happy reading! XO
