First Grave on the Right by the fabulous Darynda Jones!
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.
Charley Davidson is a private detective by day and the Grim Reaper by night. Not only do the ghosts frequently wake her up, they want her to give them justice. And she does. Charley is a smidge peeved about being woken up, that's only because she dreams of a smokin' hot mystery, who keeps her wishing she could go back to sleep. But when her justice dealing day job stumbles across some serious danger, its her mystery dream guy who jumps out to save the day, or just be jealous. Charley quickly realizes he may not be a figment of her imagination or a ghost, but someone in need of some serious help and only Charley with the help of some awesome sidekicks, can do it. Absolutely amazing story. Can't wait for the second, Second Grave on the Left!! Darynda Jones has an amazing talent to keep you at the edge of your seat, drooling, begging for more!
When I found this book, I had no idea I would be so completely immersed that I forgot about the real world IE, letting the dogs go potty... Yeah.. I didn't put it down. Not once.
