Today, I’m recommending the audiobook First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones. This first installment in this paranormal romantic suspense series introduces listeners to Charley Davidson, a 27-year-old woman who’s a part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.
Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. It is her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when someone dies with unfinished business on Earth, they seek out Charley in order to bring the bad guys to justice.
Partnering up with her police detective uncle, they investigate the fatal shooting of three lawyers, who at the time of their deaths were representing a client accused of murder.
Complicating things are the steamy, red-hot dreams she’s been having about a dark seductive stranger, the one who has been haunting her all her life.
Bringing this fantastical action-packed mystery to life is narrator Lorelei King, an award-winning narrator known for her work on Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, as well as titles by Debbie Macomber, Jane Smiley, and Patricia Cornwell.
Fans of “chick-lit” mysteries, racy humor, and strong female characters will not be disappointed by this audiobook—or the other ten installments in the series.
