RATING: ★★★1/2

Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the part human, part supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil’s son just won’t give up?


The sassy PI is back. In Third Grave Dead Ahead Charley is trying to deal with the fact that Reyes doesn't want to see her. But can you really blame him after the events of Second Grave on the Left?

Charley is running around all over town hopped up on coffee and days without sleep trying to solve another missing person's case. While Charley tries to find out what has happened to the missing wife of a doctor she has run in after run in with Reyes when she falls asleep. Which is why is she tries to void falling a sleep. Although the encounters are sexy, she can also see that Reyes doesn't really want to be called to her.

More emotional tug of war between Charley and Reyes. They want each other but don't like that they want each other because they still do not trust the other one 100%.

Charley is slowly starting to see what she is capable of with her powers. Things are a brewing and I'm not talking about all that coffee that she and Cookie drinks. As a bigger picture starts to develop through out the series it only brings up more questions. And I can't wait to read/listen to the next book, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet.

Only time will tell what the fates have in store for Charley and Reyes. And if you are a fan of snark filled mysteries with hotter than sin anti-hero you need to check out Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series. I highly recommend it on audio. Lorelei King does an outstanding job bring the sassy Charley to life.

  1. I loved this one, though the ending was different in the ARC. I'm glad she decided to make the change.

  2. Oh... I loved, loved this one, but looks like it didn't blew you away, although 3.1/2 is really not bad.
    And.. Word! about Lorelei King, she's fantastic.

  3. I love Reyes, since he's so very hot, but I'm interested to read about what'll happene between Charley and the biker dude
