Part-Time Grim Reaper Charley is Back In Action

Part-Time Grim Reaper Charley is Back In Action

Publishers Weekly just slapped a star on their review of SECOND GRAVE ON THE LEFT, the sequel to the RWA 2009 Golden Heart for Best Paranormal Romance, FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT

Part-time grim reaper, P.I. Charley Davidson, is solving two separate missing person cases, sorting out her love life, and trying to keep demons from accessing a portal to heaven (can somebody get this woman a cup of coffee?).

"Jones perfectly balances humor and suspense in her tight second paranormal thriller featuring grim reaper, PI, and "all-around badass" Charley Davidson. [...] The fiery relationship between Charley and Reyes will satisfy paranormal romance fans, but it's the distinctive characters, dead and alive, and the almost constant laughs that will leave readers eager for the next installment." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

And to get you in the mood, check out, FOR I HAVE SINNED, a Charley Davidson short here on HeroesAndHeartbreakers.com!
