Fifth Grave Past the Light - Darynda Jones



Never underestimate the power of a woman on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high.

Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth…but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason. When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma is the serial killer’s next target, Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’s help. Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.



My thoughts:


With this book I have difficulties writing a review. Not because I didn’t like it. No, I loved it but this book had sooooo much going on. So I’m having trouble putting everything down on paper or the screen however you want to see it.

Charley of course has her hands full with all kinds of stuff again in this book. She has a case as a PI, helps out the APD again and of course her Grim Reaper job is not letting her rest either.

Not only are her hands full but so is her apartment, and not with the living. No, her apartment is filled with dead people and it makes it difficult for her to work or even just being in her apartment until she resolves the issue.

All the dead people in her apartment actually was rather creepy and I would have not stepped a foot in there would I have been in her place.
