Review: Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

Ohhhhhhhhh Charley. And Reyes. This book was very fun. Charley and Reyes have some interesting communication problems to overcome. Ya know, with Charley being all pregnant and stuff, which you find out at the beginning of the book, no spoilers here. And the 12 hellhounds are after her, which apparently are bigger than normal hellhounds, so Reyes insists on being her sexy bodyguard.
The chemistry is great, the action is great. This is a great book. I keep thinking I am going to get tired of this series, and boom, the next installment just keeps me interested.

We find out more about Charley’s celestial being! Not a lot, but it’s enough. And she is really starting to come into her powers. There are more appearances from Rocket and Strawberry Shortcake, and obviously there is Ubie, Cookie, and Amber. And there is a really funny scene where Amber is asking about grown up things and Charley gets a little flustered.

Yep, another great installment.

Grade: 5 stars

About the book:

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.
A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.
We’re doomed.
