Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones
The Second Book in this series.....................
I have to admit...i did not read the first book..however, I never felt like I was missing anything. This book was well written and had enough back story included in it that i never once felt lost.
We open to a roll on the floor laughing scene between the main character Charley(I love the name!) and her quirky friend Cookie(also her receptionist) Cookie is just frantic..tries to get charley dressed in some awful clothes..then proceeds to try to cram her into the trunck of her car. It seems as though maybe Cookie has lost her mind, but alas, she hasnt. Come to find out her friend mimi has been missing for 5 days. Charley is a PI and Cookie is her receptionist, together with some zany family and one hot dude (Reyes) they imbarq on the quest to find Mimi.
Now about Reyes and Charley...it seems as Charley was growing up she has a "Big-Bad" that followed her around..she assumed it was a scary ghost..(she is the grim reaper after all)..Come to find out it was actually Reyes..aka..true son of satan. (this was all back story from the first book)
Anyhow Charley has to find Reyes,who is currently out of his human body and floating around stalking her, since he is being tortured by demons.
Fun Fun Book! I give it 5 STARS!!!!
