Charley Davidson is both a private investigator and the grim reaper. Now she drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake. She knows that if she doesn’t the moment she closes her eyes she is going to see Reyes Farrow again. He is also the part-human son of Satan. Charley may have imprisoned him for all eternity but is that any reason for him to haunt her with his plan of seduction and revenge? She has to solve a missing person case. She is also having to deal with a motorcycle gang bent on murder, try and calm her curmudgeonly dad and also handle an ego-driven doctor. Reyes is getting in the way of all that and making life difficult.

This is another Charley Davidson book that is sure to please fans of the series. The humor is there in spades and makes for a book that readers won’t want to put down. They will want to see how Charley gets out of her latest difficulties and see just what is going to happen next. The story also takes some very fun twists that makes for a book that will have readers laughing out loud and wanting to read the next book in the series right away. This is proving to be a series that is addictive and a lot of fun to read. It will also have readers hoping for many more books in this series. This is a must read. ( )

Judging by the fact that I was still up reading this at 2:40 am I'd say it's pretty darn good. Charley is still just amazing! Toward the end I thought I was going to have to break up with the series because I got so upset however Ms Jones pulled me through and has me chomping at the bit for the fourth book. I will say with this being the first book in the series I've read and not listened to I really missed the narrator. She does a much better job of bringing the characters to life than the voices in my head. I really want to hear her take on Donovan's voice and I can't wait to learn more about his character in general. This biker gang brings some interesting possibilities. Oh and Reyes, we can never forget Reyes. *dreamy sigh*

This is a bunch of rambling I know but when a book is good to me I can't keep my thoughts about it in order. 4.5 Stars ( )

Oh. My. God! My favorite book so far! I loved the whole story as always, but the ending here took me way by surprise. Talk about a plot twist there! Already started book #4! ( )

The Good: The best Charley Davidson book yet! Charley's off even more than usual due to lack of sleep, but that doesn't make her even a tiny bit less entertaining. Fun and unexpected twists as well as totally unforeseeable mystery. Reyes is unbelievably mad, but that doesn't cool down the super hot fun times. How could things get any better than this?

The Bad: Not a thing. ( )

“. . . despite a few slight disappointments, Third Grave Dead Ahead is still incredibly enjoyable and as entertaining as always. Charley is still on top of her game. Reyes is still as sexy and smoking hot as ever, and Darynda Jones still keeps you coming back and begging for more.”

"Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back! And she's drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil's son just won't give up?"--Provided by publisher.… (more)
