Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it's time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn't come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she's used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.

At A Glance

So many things! Good things. Amazing things.

The Good

Where to start? I don’t know. There was everything. Everything I needed. Charley is just too fun and Reyes is just too adorable when he is around Charley, even though he’s broody most of the time. We have the intro of The Dealer. He makes me nervous, in a yummy way. We have the revelation of the size and type of stick up Captain Eckert’s ass. 🙂 I don’t think I have ever used this word, but what a prick. We have Cookie and Uncle Bob finally moving forward to something special. We have this new kid with some powers. OMG, then Mr. Wong. Oh, can’t forget the prophecies galore! Then the five million cases Charley handles all at once. I can’t, it’s too much awesomeness!

I seriously died over the scene of Reyes breaking down some walls between him and Charley, literally. It’s just too good. I love their relationship so much I want to punch something. Charley is learning more about her powers as we learn more about Reyes’ past. I still love how Charley keeps her sense of humor and positive attitude during the worst of times. That ending killed! Literally. Then the final revelation killed me twice over.

Jones and her characterization is just beyond. Such unique voices and distinct personalities. I don’t know how she does it. Must be witchcraft. Definitely witchcraft.

The Bad

Lots of stuff happening and lots of characters. it can get a bit confusing sometimes.

The Snuggly

Oh, Charley and Reyes, how I love your love making. Yum.

Final Thoughts

Even though the book before was a little better, Sixth Grave on the Edge is still a 5 starer. It got a bit jumbled but so much important stuff happened I seriously had a bookgasm too many times to count. READ THIS SERIES. That is all.


“On a scale of one to stepping on a LEGO, how much pain are you in?”

“I have a perfect body, it’s in my trunk.”

“The next thing I remembered was Reyes smiling down at me as the sun filtered into his apartment, his hair mussed, his lids hooded with the thick remnants of sleep. I stretched as those three little words that every girl longs to hear slipped from his mouth with effortless ease. As though they did every day. As though they didn’t mean the world to me.
With one corner of his mouth tipping sensually, he asked, “Want some coffee?”
And I fell.
I fell hard.”  

“He turned the corner and flipped me off at the same time. See? Men could multitask. I was so proud of him.”
“Remember, it’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eyeball, and then it’s, “Hey! free eyeball!”

    I never heard of this series before, but it sounds like a lot of fun! With so many characters I would as well get them mixed up.

    Man I’m so far behind on this series. I think I’ve read the first three and I remember loving Charley and her snarky ways. Seems like people continue to love them and a lot are sad that the next book out will be the last.

  3. Olivia

    I love how much you love this series. Sure, there is a lot going on but it sounds like you’re enjoying every moment of it. I hope that continues on with the series as it goes on!

    Glad to hear this series is still going strong. I think the last book I read was the 3rd one. That was way back when and I wound up having to wait for the 4th book to come out. Which meant the series got put on the back burner. I really need to sit down and catch up though. I love these two and the humor of it all.
