First Grave on the Right

Charley Davidson, #1

A true paranormal princess has been proclaimed. Bravo Ms. Jones, you have just hit the big time.

Listen up, my name is Charley Davidson, and I see and speak to the dearly departed. Don’t laugh, I really do. To add to that little ditty, I am also the Grim Reaper. No, not as I take souls, more along the lines of I help lost souls find their way home.

Now, I have a sexual entity consuming my dreams and newly killed lawyers that need my help to find their killer.

If that is not enough, I am a consistent target. I will need to keep my head on straight while trying to figure out who my dream lover is. Want to come along with me? I know you cannot help yourselves to see how I fare. Grab First Grave on the Right and see how I kick evil ass and get sexed up.

First Gave on the Right is the first in a series by author Darynda Jones. This author’s voice gives a new meaning to the cutting edge of paranormal penning. Using a first person narrative, Charley takes over and shows how being independent and a strong woman can changed the course of the lives or the dead she encounters. When you add the quirky secondary characters, you have a brilliant novel.

I will be tapping my fingers until the next book comes out, Second Grave on the Left. Do not walk; run to get your copy of First Gave on the Right when it debuts. Is it February yet?

Book Blurb for First Grave on the Right

Private investigator Charlotte Davidson was born with three things: a smoking hot ass; a healthy respect for the male anatomy; and the rather odd job title of grim reaper. Since the age of five, she has been helping the departed solve the mysteries of their deaths so they can cross. Thus, when three lawyers from the same law firm are murdered, they come to her to find their killer. In the meantime, she's dealing with a being more powerful, and definitely sexier, than any specter she's ever come across. With the help of a pain-in-the-ass skip tracer, a dead pubescent gangbanger named Angel, and a lifetime supply of sarcasm, Charley sets out to solve the highest profile case of the year and discovers that dodging bullets isn't nearly as dangerous as falling in love.

First Grave on the Right is the 2009 RWA© Golden Heart® winner for Best Paranormal Romance Manuscript and won first in the Silicon Valley RWA's GOTCHA! Contest. It will be released in 2011 by St. Marin's Press along with the next two in the series.
