Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones
Grim Reaper, Murder Mystery, Adventure, Sex, Humor
Charley has some romps in this book that are lighthearted (will she say yes or no, how to get her uncle to date Cookie) and some that are less so (hellhounds, and apparently you can in fact lose your soul) and the tension is just as high as it was in the beginning, but it definitely feels like every book raises the stakes. I love Charley because she is so adamantly herself, and Cookie and Swopes get some well-deserved page time, but Reyes really grates on me because he never tells Charley the whole truth and his condescension gets worse every book. You learn a lot more about the world beyond this one, and I’m excited to find out what is up with Mr. Wong.
Stupid cliffhanger ending.
