Sometimes being the grim reaper really is, well, grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple of months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above . . . or at least get dressed. It becomes clear something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. But the more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.
In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved.
I often reach this conclusion when it comes to good books….this author is evil!!!! First all the tempting with Reyes, who makes my (well you figure it out), then all the secrets, what is gonna happen and what Charley really is. And then leaving me craving more, just like a zombie craves brains. So there you have it, Darynda Jones is evil.
And you know I can’t write a normal review when it comes to these books. The mere though of Reyes makes my insides melt. He is sex on a stick. And *fans myself* heaven help me.
Charley is so kick-ass and funny, dang, I want her as my best friend! The mystery made me go 0_0, yes I never manage to see it coming *applauds*. Reyes, oh I was supposed to go on and look who I came back to….
Anyway totally recommended. ’nuff said.
