LOVE THIS BOOK!!
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones. I loved this book. Darynda has a wicked sense of humor – filled with sarcasm to-boot! I found I couldn’t wait to start a new chapter just to see the little tag line at the beginning that was taken from a t-shirt, bumper sticker, etc. The main character, Charley is a female Grim Reaper and has been since birth. Her life was pretty bumpy as she learned to accept her role in the world and lost many a friend because of it. Reyes is the antithesis of Charley and yet follows her relentlessly. He is mysterious to the very end. The humor in this book pushes the reader forward in an unsuspecting way towards a number of “who knew” twists and turns in the plot. Darynda has a nice way of combining action, depth of plot and character with her wicked sense of humor. This is a must read as I am anxiously awaiting her next book. Hurry up Darynda – please! 5 chocolate strawberries.
