The Trouble with Twelfth Grave
The Trouble with Twelfth Grave - Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson, Book 12

I Picked Up This Book Because: Have you ever read a Charley book you didn’t like? Me either

The Characters:

Charley Davidson:
Rey’azikeen:

The Story:

I’m not going to lie the ending of this book has me traumatized and I find it wholly unfair that I have to wait a year for the next installment. An entire 12 months! I can’t even.

Something I also forget is these stories take place relatively close together. Even though I’ve been enjoying Charley’s whit and wisdom for years the storyline has only covered a fraction of that time. Beep is still just a teeny tiny whoopit. (That’s an infant for those not in the know.) I really wish Charley got to spend more time with her. I would love to see her and Reyes tackle being more hands on as parents.

But back to this story. Charley is as usual busy with several cases at once. Trying to clear her friend Peri and find the real murderer, a string of supernatural deaths oh and let us not forget the god who escaped from the god glass in her husband body and his quest to find… we don’t know what. (I mean we find out but you have to read that on your own) Charley handles life in a sleep deprived whirlwind of grace and sleep deprived Charley charm. I really have no bad words to say about this story, okay there were quite a few bad words at 93% and some more after that but they were good bad words.

Writing: I devoured these words like Charley devours gods.
Overall Interest: Loved every second.
Length of Reading Time: As usual in my life I had feast or famine days for reading.
Re-read-ability: The more I read and think about this series the more I want to do an epic re-read.. well re-listen, I really love Lorelei King’s interpretation of Charley.

The Random Thoughts:

Awesome Read!!
Nothing But Trouble - a Western Romance - Lisa Mondello

Nothing But Trouble by Lisa Mondello is a great read.  This is a fairly short read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Mondello has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are fantastic and lovable.  Melanie is a sassy, feisty, diabetic zoologist.  Stoney is a sometimes rodeo bull rider and works the family ranch.  Trouble follows when Melanie hires Stoney to guide her into a month-long stay in the mountains.  There is plenty of action, drama, sizzle and suspense to keep any reader happy.  I totally enjoyed reading Nothing But Trouble and look forward to reading more from Ms Mondello soon.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie.

The Trouble With Love (Distinguished Rogues) by Heather Boyd
The Trouble with Love (Distinguished Rogues Book 8) - Heather Boyd

 

Love was never meant to be easy, but Ms. Boyd sure knows how to make it entertaining.  Beyond the scandal, beneath the secrets and above all else are characters not unlike you and I.  People searching for a place to belong in this world.  The Trouble With Love blends fanciful with emotional and begets exceptional.  If nothing else, Whitney and Acton prove that life has a sense of humor and sometimes the heart is the last to know, what the head has already discovered.

Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave (Charley Davidson #12) by Darynda Jones
The Trouble with Twelfth Grave - Darynda Jones

 

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series.

Ever since Reyes escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley accidently trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes, can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?

OMG, Ms. Jones has gone and done it again. Every time you think her books can’t get any better the next book comes out and is better than the last. This book was simply put. EPIC. I don’t even know how to put it in words without spoiling anything, so I will just make it short and simple. Just know going into this book that there will be some pretty major plot-twists. Things we thought we knew from book one are all off the sudden not what we thought they are. And it blew my mind. Also know that this book will leave you hanging with a MAJOR cliffhanger that had me screaming. Even now writing the review I still don’t know what to think about all of it and that ending. The book starts off pretty much were the last one ended and oh boy poor Charley barley gets to breathe let alone sleep. I think she gets like a couple hours of sleep throughout the book. She is after Reyes trying to get him to come back to her. Body and soul. Of course that is not easy with everyone breathing down her neck. Archangels, God, hell hounds and so on. As that would not be enough, she also has a case she is taken on and that case proofs to be more than she first thought, While we get not as much PI work from her se still get to see her work and work through things including the dilemma with Reyes. She discovers some pretty shocking things along the way. One thing is for sure no matter how beaten and battled Charley is, she never loses her sense of humor. She still full of snark but that doesn’t mean she cares less. Oh no we saw how much she really cares for her friends and family in this book. Reyes, it is not secret that I have a hate-love relationship with him. But holy smokes did he push my patience with him this book. I think about half way I was ready to give up on the book on him and I needed a break from him. Of course I didn’t but I got close. We don’t get to see him all that much and yet he is always close. Osh. OH MY OSH. That man-child-demon snuck into my heart from the first time we met him. I knew he had great potential and I was not wrong. He really shined in this book. Garrett of course was all smexy and loyal and helpful and showed how much he is willing to give to help the gang out. Of course we have out lovely dead people, that always help, Rocket, Strawberry Shortcake and even Blue. Some big and heartbreaking things are happening that will impact them all in a big way. We also found out what happened to Taft, I think all of that will somehow tie into everything that has been going on, it has to. Last but not the least we have Ubi, Cook, Amber and Quentin, while we not get to see super much of all of them they all still play a major part of the overall plot. Overall we get a lot of things answered and some are truly shocking. The same with the ending of this book. OMG it had me in tears, my heart was ripped out and stumped on and then the unspeakable happened. I still don’t know which shocked me more and I think I will need a while to process it all. I’m very curious to see how she will end it all in the next book, I just wish I could read it now and wouldn’t have to wait a year. I rate this book a full 5 ★

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

“So, what did you tell Uncle Bon?” I asked, unlocking Misery’s secrets and her doors. “That we were going to see a movie.” I bit my lip, then asked, “And he bought that?’ “Of course, only his exact words were. “Tell that niece of niece of mine if she gets you arrested, I’ll make sure she never see the light of day.” “So, he totally bought it. Awesome.”
