Sixth Grave on The Edge
Charley Davidson book SIX
By Darynda Jones
Pages: 352
Publisher: St. Martins Press

Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it's time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn't come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear. 

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she's used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow

Ok, I'm not moving till i get me a Reyes.....No? Worth a shot!

The usual brilliant writing style that it is Ms Jone's - humorous, steamy, tension, mystery and a gorgeous being called Reyes - ahh phooey, forget hes the son of Satan, still want one!!

Ok, so in this one Charley and Reyes's relationship is still elevating and still as much a joy to read as it was when it was a will-they-wont-they storyline.
Charley has several new loads of information to digest - things that will make you think "uh oh" and others you're on the "WTF" book (in a good way!).
She seems to be looking at her role as the Grim reaper more, and seeing what she can do and shes slowly realising she has more power than she initially thought.

Of course theres a case or two for her going along, but this one is really revealing more about Charley and who and what she is.

Older storylines are visited - like Quentin the little boy she saved from possession and the nuns, and also the long term rivalry with ex best friend Jessica.....wont say any more about that one!

We're also giving glimpses into Swopes investigation into the prophecy that involves Charley which leaves to one heck of a cliffhanger making me want the next book NOW!!!!

In alot of the books we are introduced to Charley through her PI work, her family, her friendship with Cookie and the whole Reyes thing.  Now we know her background, Ms Jones is stepping up the writing to show Charley as she is NOW and not her PI work, but more about her Grim Reaper side, and I'm enjoying reading this and finding out what is to be with Charley - or Charley and Reyes?

A FANTASTIC series, that i have loved since book one and have never had a boring time reading these at all.... of the things that i find brilliant is the little statements at the beginning of each chapter - i really hope they continue, they make me giggle!!
