Feed the Fish Friday
Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones
Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out Charley Davidson’s jugular and serve her body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and as she retraces his last steps she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life. But all of that barely scratches the surface of her problems. Recent developments have forced her to become a responsible adult. To conquer such a monumental task, she’s decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can’t even keep a goldfish alive?
A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.
Ahhh just what I needed to make me smile over this INSANE cold weather. No human should be subjected to -2 degree temps. Although the snow day did help me catch up on some reading. As always Darynda Jones rocked. Never a bad book. Every single character is awesome right down to Cookie's daughter Amber. I must admit that Charley does take ALOT of unnecessary risks and I hope one day it doesn't catch up with her. In the meantime I will patiently wait for the next book. Because I rock at having patience.
I give this book 5 coffee flavored chocolates.
I have a confession to make make. I to am a namer of objects and I have nothing named Artemis. I have no idea how this happened but I'm thinking of getting a plant to rectify the situation.
