DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: When Charley Davidson and Cookie (her best friend/receptionist) have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. A friend of Cookie's named Mimi disappeared five days earlier. This friend then sends Cookie a cryptic message telling them to meet her at a nearby coffee shop. The coffee is brewing, but Mimi's still missing. There is, however, a clue left on the bathroom wall: a woman's name, scribbled by Mimi. Mimi's husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.
Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He's left his body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm's way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?
Here is your signpost for the most hilarious read of the summer: Second Grave On The Left. ( )

The second book has Charley searching for various people both with and without her "dead" friends and supernatural beings. Charley's best friend Cookie awakens her in the middle of the night to find out what has happened to "Mimi". As they search for Mimi, they discover that all that is happening revolves around the mysterious disappearance of one of Mimi's high school acquaintances. While this is happening, Charley's father is dealing with something that has him more worried that Charley has seen in a long time - but he doesn't want to tell Charley. By not telling her, it has put her in more trouble with "bad guys". To add to all this, Reyes has hidden his body from Charley. She desperately needs to find him before his body dies. As usual, Charley is witty, the story is interesting, and the characters are wonderful. Another great read. ( )

Love Charley's attitude and all the sayings on the t-shirts and bumper stickers. Looking forward to the next book and to find out how her relationship with Reyes progresses. ( )

-Second Grave on the left- I was a bit taken back with the two case's she was working on. The fact that she could even stop looking for one for a second to spend looking for the other totally miffed me. I still love the Charley and the author's snarky T-shirt humor. My kind of girl, She get's me she really does. I found myself laughing at her as much as I was horrified by her ordeal. It was a darker book for me, than the last one. I enjoyed the ride and can't wait to find out if she is forgiven or if she ever learns what she can do. ( )
