Book Review: First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

8788554I have to admit it. I judged this book by the cover. And I was wrong. Many people told me how awesome this series is, but I looked at the cover and just thought…meh, doesn’t look like my thing. Boy, was I ever wrong! So, let this be a lesson to you (and me, obviously) to never judge a book by its cover! Now, granted, it is a gorgeous cover, but it doesn’t quite seem to match up with what is on the inside.

From Amazon:

First Grave on the Right is the smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.
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.
This is a thrilling debut novel from Darynda Jones, an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.

First Grave on the Right is a hilarious, heart-pounding adventure not only to solve a crime but also against the clock to save a mysterious man, Reyes Farrow. But, the question quickly becomes who is saving whom? And who is going to save me from running out to read the next one? Whooo-hooo…we need more Reyes, that’s for sure.

I can’t wait to read more.
