Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans
When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. 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 found 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? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?

What's better than a badass detective who is not only a woman but the grim reaper? Nothing!
Charlotte Davidson is the epitome of superbad, badass, and sexy. She made her story a fun one to read with laughs, rapid heartbeats, and anticipation.

Second Grave on the Left was a fun read, definately something that you should never read when you're on that Just-One-More-Chapter-Then-I'll-Go-To-Bed kinda night. Because trust me, you will never end with that one chapter. Take my word from personal experience.
The plot of the book was interesting to hook me from the very first chapter. Two missing persons cases: Mimi, Cookie (Charlotte's friend) friend, and Reyes, the son of satan. Going through the days of searching, taking to the dead, meeting fake FBI agents, and almost 

getting killed, Second Grave on the Left is anything but boring.

First Line: "Charley, hurry, wake up."
