Starred Reviews for First Grave on the Right AUDIO


FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT, the debut paranormal romance from the sizzlingly talented Darynda Jones, won the 2009 Golden Heart for Best Paranormal Romance from RWA. The story continues to grab reviewers attention, this time in audio!

The reviewers at Booklist (who starred the book when it first released in hardcover) have starred the audio version, as well! They say, "[Lorelei] King (familiar to many as the recent reader of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels) brings sassy fun to the role of Charley, who is spunky and sarcastic. […] Paranormal romance is hot, so expect high interest in this sizzling, laugh-out loud-story."

It's also an Earphones Award-winner with AudioFile who said, "Narrator Lorelei King has proved herself the queen of snark, the sovereign of inspired performances of sassy female detectives. She’s pretty amazing with a large cast of secondary characters, too. King’s a perfect choice for portraying Charley Davidson, an Albuquerque P.I. and grim reaper responsible for leading the dead to the other side. [...] Jones’s book will leave romance, chick-lit, humor, and mystery lovers waiting for Charley’s second adventure."

[UPDATE]: Library Journal also gave the FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT audio a starred review! "When Charlie announces that the names of her breasts are "Danger" and "Will Robinson," listeners know they are in for a wild ride. Actress/Audie Award winner Lorelei King is comfortable in Charlie's skin and performs a wide variety of characters distinctly. For anyone enjoying sexy paranormal detective fiction."

This is a must have for any audio collection!
