Second Grave on the Left
by Darynda Jones
4 stars - perfect paranormal romance (with a bit of mystery)
ALR Blue - no animal characters
Charley Davidson (a.k.a. The Grim Reaper) is back for another paranormal romance and mystery. She's still engaging in an on and off affair with the son of Satan and this time he's in a bit of a pickle.
Satan Junior (Reyes Alexander Farrow) has left his corporeal body behind because, well, it's being tortured by demons. Ew. Still, it's all that stands between those demons and Charley, whose bright light (don't forget, she's the gateway to heaven) is oh so attractive to nasty beasties looking for a quick trip out of hell.
If that isn't enough, Charley's busy working on a missing person case which seems to include a trail of suspicious deaths. Suicide or murder? What do you think?
It's all jolly good fun.
