-Charlotte Jean Davidson, Grim Reaper
Charlotte "Charlie" Davidson is a Private Investigator by day and a Grim Reaper all the time. To the dead, she's a shiny beacon of hope and they flock to her like flies to...well you know. Lately she's been having nocturnal visits of the dirty kind by someone she thinks she knows.
Back of the Book:
A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to go into the light. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.
Should be required reading for all future Grim Reapers or fans of early Laurel K Hamilton, with a mix of Lisa Lutz and Janet Evanovich. Every once in a while you'll find an author that makes you squeee in excitement (No that wasn't meant to be dirty- you perv) think more early fans of the Beatles. This was it- let's face it...it's been desert dry out there for new fantastic authors. I've been hitting the well of recycled authors for so long, the bucket's hit dirt. Finding this new wonderful author will keep me going for a while- keep the endorphins flowing so when I get to work and that co-worker that normally sets my teeth on edge starts up- I can go to my happy place. My -at least I found a new author-place.
What I really like is that she has the next two books in the series written already...Second Grave on the Left due out in August 2011 and Third Grave Dead Ahead.
If you can't wait until these come out- you can go to her website. You'll find short stories, deleted scenes, excerpts from upcoming novels. Really can't wait? Go to Heroes and Heart breakers.com for an original short story featuring my newest favorite heroine.
