Présentation de l'éditeur

First Grave on the Right is the 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.

This is a thrilling debut novel from Darynda Jones, an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.

First Grave on the Right is the winner of the 2012 Rita Award for Best First Book.

La série Charley Davidson (5 tomes en 3 ans, tous lus) m'avait semblé apporter un petit vent de fraîcheur dans l'urban fantasy. L'idée de départ paraît bonne (et sûrement efficace, puisque j'ai cliqué sur Amazon pour avoir les autres tomes, les uns après les autres): raconter l'histoire d'une jeune femme qui semble psychologiquement un peu instable, caractéristique sûrement liée au fait qu'elle voit les morts depuis son plus jeune âge (elle est collecteur d'âmes, devant indiquer le chemin pour les morts qui se sont égarés sur Terre). Elle a dû commencer jeune, puisqu'elle a dû aider sa mère morte en couches (à sa naissance) à rejoindre le royaume des morts.

Charley est une jeune femme très extravertie, un peu paumée dans la vie. Issue d'un milieu familial où les policiers sont nombreux (son père, son oncle), elle a trouvé un métier à la lisière, en étant mi-investigatrice (divorces douloureux et personnes en fuite) mi-consultante pour la police, et son oncle Bob en particulier. C'est pratique pour faire avancer l'histoire (mêler une intrigue policière par tome son histoire personnelle) et pour gagner de l'argent facilement (pour peu que le mort soit encore égaré sur Terre, qu'il soit bavard et qu'il ait eu le temps de voir ce qui lui était arrivé).

Durant le premier tome j'ai été très intriguée par Charley. Pourquoi elle? Qui est-elle? Ou plutôt, qu'est-ce qu'elle est? Et que peut-elle faire? Qui est ce mystérieux et séduisant Reyes qui lui sauve la vie régulièrement, de manière surnaturelle?

Une très bonne série : un rythme rapide, une héroïne décoiffante et intrépide, beaucoup d'humour, un peu de sexe mais pas trop. Bref un très très bon moment.
J'ai acheté les tomes 2/3/4 dans la foulée et pré-commandé le 5.
Je n'ai pas été déçue. Les personnages secondaires sont travaillés et attachants, l'auteur évite le coté trop bon enfant de l'héroïne qui aide les disparus à traverser la lumière en lui donnant un coté sarcarstique et hyper-active. En ce qui concerne le sénario on va de surprise en surprise et on se laisse agréablement mener par l'histoire.

Tout lu, tout dévoré, c'est addictif !
Dès le tome 1 First grave on the right, on se laisse gagner par le caractère pétillant de l'héroïne, son humour et le suspense incessant de l'intrigue. Et ni les tomes 2, 3 et 4 ne s'essoufflent !

Sometimes, even avid readers get into slumps where they are just too tired to pick up a new book. I'd been that way for about two - three months. I just didn't feel like reading, which is very odd for me. So, after the first of the year, I went looking for something engaging, easy, and light-hearted to get me back in the reading mood. Something that I wouldn't have to think too much about; something that would be marvelously enjoyable. Lucky for me, I stumbled across FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT, by newcomer Darynda Jones. Wacky, off-beat, and a tiny bit naughty, FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT fit the bill in oh-so-many ways.

FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT is a riotous combination of chic lit, detective suspense, and urban paranormal genres. P.I. Charley Davidson sees dead people. Well, she not only sees them, they are drawn to her. Because she is shiny. Very shiny. You see, Charley Davidson is a grim reaper. Well, not just a grim reaper, she is THE Grim Reaper. And not just THE Grim Reaper; Charlie Davidson is the portal (the shining light) through which all souls must travel to gain entrance to Heaven. The advantage to having these miraculous talents is that Charley Davidson not only helps the dead move on, she also help the police solve "unsolvable" cases. It does help when the victim can point you to the murderer.

Charlotte "Charley" Davidson is a strong, take no prisioners, my way or the highway kinda girl. She knows what she needs to do, and she does it, not really caring what other people think. Her character is delightful, endearing, and off the wall - she feels REAL and has quickly become a new favorite. Her spunky, devil-may-care attitude may get her in a world of trouble, but she always bounces back, and her heart is always in the right place. I predict that these qualities will make her very popular with readers.

FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT is happily mindless, something to be read for pure enjoyment. It is also an action-packed, fast-paced page turner that is very, very hard to put down. I read FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT nearly straight through, losing out on some much need sleep!

Delightful and zany, FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT is brain candy for the soul. It will wash away your worries, lift your spirits, and leave you smiling. Pretty impressive for a debut novel. I can't wait to see what Darynda Jones and Charley do next.

Author Darynda Jones has a smashing success with her debut novel "First Grave On The Right". I must admit that my favorite book subject is the paranormal but I've read so many bad novels in this genre that I didn't have high hopes for this book. Boy, was I wrong and I'm glad I was. You can tell me you told me so and I won't protest!

Charley Davidson (Dutch) is a private investigator, consultant to the Albuquerque Police and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley is not grim in the least. She is a bright, sparkling portal (to the dead) to the other side also known as "heaven". The dearly departed who did not immediately pass over can remedy their mistake later by moving through Charley to where they need to go. Charley sees dead people. She can also speak with them which puts her in a unique position to solve unsolved murders. She has a deceased assistant named Angel and an alive assistant named Cookie. Her uncle is a detective who has an unusually high rate of solved cases thanks to Charley and her unusual abilities. Added to the mix is a dream lover that Charley at first does not recognize and things get more complicated from there.

Charley's sarcasm and dry wit are a hoot and the writing is smart and fast paced. I couldn't put the book down and I am so looking forward to the sequel that will be released later this year.

HASH(0x8bea4cc0) étoiles sur 5 Touch the Night: Great Premise, but main character felt distant 12 février 2011
Par Angela - Publié sur Amazon.com

Charley Davidson was born a reaper. The Grim Reaper, to be exact. She convinces the dead to go into the light. They're drawn to her, and she to them. Because of this she often ends up investigating the deaths that happened under unusual circumstances - like murder. Which is good, since being a reaper doesn't really pay the bills.

When three attorneys turn up dead, Charley helps out the PD with their case, through her Uncle Bob who's a detective. While she's searching for the culprit, and trying to help her other clients, Charley is also trying to figure out if her nightly visits from a phantom lover are more than they seem. This phantom has been following her all her life, and he just might not be dead. In fact, he could be something a whole lot more disturbing.

First Grave on the Right is sarcastic, humorous, quick and fun. There's the two mystery threads - the attorneys murders, and the spectral visitor - that serve to move the story along, though Charley's phantom is given much more credence and is much more interesting because of it.

Charley herself is extremely sarcastic. Extremely. She uses it to keep people and situations at arms length from her. I think this is a realistic defense considering what she is, but it also served to keep me at a distance. I think that I would have liked to be able to delve a little bit more into her, get some more depth and gotten to know her. I had a hard time connecting with her.

That being said, I caught myself laughing out loud a few times, even if I wasn't loving the fact that she named her breasts which just seemed absurd to me. There were times when it felt like she was being witty for the sake of being witty.

The ending I absolutely loved. The resolution of the Big Bad that's been haunting Charley is a fantastic hook. It completely pulled me in and made me want to find out what happened next, making me think that First Grave on the Right is really more of an introductory book to get us into the world and life of Charley Davidson. I will be picking up the second book, Second Grave on the Left when it's released to see if I can connect more with Charley.

First Grave on the Right is an enjoyable, witty ride with an interesting premise. I really enjoyed the idea of a grim reaper and what that meant for the world. I'm definitely interested in seeing where Darynda Jones takes Charley, and us, next.

Once I finished this book, I wanted to give it 5+++ stars! This debut is destined to become a favorite series of readers everywhere
.
I have yet to see an author write with such wit and humor and make it work so beautifully in a book that can still carry off the thrils, chills and the paranormal romance feel.

Charley Davidson is what you'd call a permanent Grim Reaper sort of a `Go to the Light' kind of gal/part-time private detective and a part time Albuquerque Police Department consultant. It doesn't hurt that her Uncle Bob or Ubie as she affectionately calls him is a big time respected detective who took over after her dad stepped down. Both highly respected because of Charley's skills of communing with the departed, all of whom make it much easier to solve a case. Of course nobody knows that but them but hey, a girls got to make a living!

With the help of her self-depreciating best friend and secretary, Cookie and some departed friends she helps solve a criminal case that I won't say a word about because I truly don't want to spoil this for anybody.
What I will say is that Charley is working one heck of a case with 3 departed lawyers that will cause all kinds of havoc in all areas of her life. Luckily, she has a lot of back-up with her Grim skills but that still doesn't keep her out of trouble or danger.

Also,Charley comes in to contact with one ay carumba hotty named Reyes that she met years ago when she was a teen and hasn't seen or heard of him since, he was the one that she felt an instant connection with and now, almost 10 years later, things start to get bizarre with Reyes, more than you could ever possibly imagine. She gets her fair share of bumps and bruises but throughout her life, there has always been a guardian angel around who somehow manages to save her from harm.

In summary, Charley's the girl I'd love to be or at the very least, have as my BFF! First Grave on the Right had me captivated until I read the very last word and even then I found myself thinking about her almost as a real person. Charley is very empowering!
Ms. Jones writing is so skillfully wicked, her characters so deliciously authentic and her world building is definitive and genuine. There is humor but there is also a delectable dark spine-tingling tension that runs through the book. All in all: It has it all!

I am eagerly anticipating the next in the series with bated breath.

First Grave on the Right is about a woman who is a private investigator and consultant for the police. A very effective one because of her power. She is not a but THE grim reaper. She sees dead people and she helps them crossover. But when someone is killed, they don't want to leave until the murderer(s) have been caught. So she comes across three dead people whose cases are very well connected, but they don't know who shot them. It is to Charley to figure out the why. Charley also has to find out who the sexy being that has been following her all her life might be. She thinks he is a ghost, but it goes much much deeper than that.

Sweet baby Jesus! Not only is this going on my Favorites list, it is going on my Best Reads EVER list. This is one of the funniest and most thoroughly entertaining books I have ever read. We get a little bit of everything wrapped up in a 300 paged book. Thank you Jones for coming up with such story. And thank you Heidi @ RainyDayRamblings for telling me to read it immediately.

This story was to die for. The plot was this amazing crime mystery involving ghosts of three murdered people. I love the build up and how everything connected. There is also Charley getting visits from the *Big Bad*. She doesn't know who or what it is, but it truly saves her life a lot. I loved the mystery behind it. Man, it is hard not to spoil this, but it is so exciting.

I think if Charley were a real person, we would be the best of friends. Her sassiness and sense of humor is worth raving about and makes her an exceptional character. I loved Charley's actual best friend Cookie. They clicked so well in this book and it added a lot to the book for me. I was so on board for Reyes. He was such an enigma, a very delicious enigma. I love the story Jones gave for him and how he ties to Charley. At first, you think he is just some bad boy, but there is so much more to uncover. It was exciting trying to decipher it all. Truly not what I expected. I am also quite curious about Garrett. He doesn't believe in Charley's powers, but you can tell he has a thing for her. I really enjoyed the dynamics between them. She really knows how to push his buttons.

It is always hard to write about something you absolutely love and I love the hell out of this. Truly one of the greatest books I read. No wonder this book has awards under its belt. Even more incredible, this was Jones very first book. I am flabbergasted. If you have not started this, I urge you to immediately. First Grave on the Right is original, laugh-until-you-piss-yourself funny, and full of action. I love Romantic Suspense and the Paranormal and Jones managed to blend them together perfectly. Do not miss out on this.
