Charley has absorbed the fact that Reyes is literally the son of Satan. The mystery is great! Very solid, twisty, lots of big revelations.
The other parts of the story are emotional and very tense.

I was absolutely riveted. The ending is a bit controversial, which had me feeling conflicted. Thankfully, I have book three already queued up and ready to go. View all 36 comments.

The man of our her dreams is in danger and Charley will move heaven and earth to seconv him. Reyes is even more mysterious now than he was in the first book when we jonees nothing about him other than how incredibly handsome he is.
Reyes is not handsome, he is Wouldn’t you like to know?!
Darynda Secomd still relies on humor to make her book unputdownable. Admittedly, there were times when I felt that she overdid it, especially around chapters 4 and 5, but she soon got right back on track. Did you name your fingers? I was a master of incredulity. It had family drama, secret agents, a silly best friend, nightly adventures in bunny slippers, missing persons, shootouts, and an ending that made me want to read more.
First Grave on the Right was the book I picked up and reread every time I felt sad, tired, or just in the mood for a few good laughs. Second Grave on the Left will serve the same purpose, at least until February 2, View all 21 comments.
A real, honest-to-goodness shoot-out with a bad guy. And, apparently, we both sucked. While the first was drenched in humor – some of it funny, some of it just silly – this one dials it down a notch to where an actual story and personality can start shining through. I laughed aloud at least once – earning me a “look” at a diner – but the humor leff a worthy companion to the compassionate but unique Charlie while she stumbled through simple, interesting mysteries.
The two girls were hilarious blends of humor, over-enthusiasm, random tripping, and sidekick banter. Garrett is still around and semi-intriguing, but he doesn’t have much of a personality or presence in this ths. Reyes is still not impressing me other than occasional growls and threats, some mild description of his hotness, but other than that I could care less.

The author makes sure to keep talking about how important Reyes is to Charley, but as the reader I’m just not feeling it yet. I will say yikes on that ending I have a feeling she does since the series is long and the other is clearly pushing for these two and their bond. For a Grim Reaper, Charlie doesn’t actually do that much.
There’s a few ghosts to stare at and communicate with, some easy crossing over, but lots of questions. Is she just one of many grim reapers? Because otherwise that just doesn’t make sense, does it?
And is the author over-reaching when she reveals what Reyes actually is? I mean, come on now, that’s pretty big pants to put on.
Second Grave On The Left
Still it nones enjoyable, funny, hard to put down; not all the magic hits the right spot, but sometimes a light paranormal is just what the heart needs. View all 4 comments. Apr 24, Heather K dentist in my spare time rated it it was ok Shelves: Though the audiobook was well narrated, I had tne push myself to listen. I hate the “I know what’s best for you”-types. Issues with the plot dragging, lack of chemistry between the two “supposed” love interests, and just I don’t really like Charlie, though her humor actually works at times.
