The fourth in this fun and sexy New York Times best-selling paranormal series.
Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley's last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she's insane. The more they refute the woman's story, the more Charley believes it.
In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley's life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.
Yes, you do need to read or listen to the series in order. Each installment builds off the other.
Holy Moly a lot happens in the Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet in the Charley Davidson series. We get more insight into Charley and what she is capable of. It also sheds more light on what is going on with the reaper side, ghosts, and people surrounding Charley.
Cookie continues to be a great side-character. She’s Charley’s best friend and always their for her no mater how much she tries to push her away or feels it’s too dangers, Cookie is their to support and kick Charley out of her slumps when need be. I just love Cookie.
Charley’s family. I liked that we got to see the love between Charley and her sister. I felt it was extremely important especially after the events in Third Grave Dead Ahead with what her dad did. I’m still made at her dad.
Reyes… What can I say about this bad boy? Their are still so many questions surrounding him. Will he end the world or be it’s salvation? And, the chemistry between Charley and him is combustable. It continues to be strong even though Charley’s a little fed-up with him and on how he treats her. I was extremely happy to finally see them have the physical sexy times instead of in the dreams or what ever place it was.
The Narration: Ms. King continues to deliver a superb listen. Her witty tone and colorful reading add to the listeners enjoyment and brings the world and characters to life. I’m very much enjoying the audio for the Charley Davidson series.
This series continues to entertain and intrigue. If you enjoy snarky humor and a good mystery then I recommend giving the Charley Davidson series a try. I also recommend the audio version for this series.
Rated: 4 Stars

PULLED UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones is Book Two in the "Walker Security" series. This is the story of Sierra and Asher.
Asher was son to a very rich man who he rebelled against and ended up in the drug underworld before getting out and bettering himself. Now he is a part of the Walker Security team and is asked to return to that world after being gone from it for almost 10 years. Asher is needed to help solve some murder cases of young women and they think Ju-Ju a drug dealer may be involved in. While doing this undercover work he meets Sierra. Sierra is a tough, hardworking smart mouth but underneath he sees that she has painful past...and secrets. Asher vows that he will now be her protector...but will she every open up about her past.
Sierra is on the run from her past just trying to get enough money to live on and to stay ahead of the past. Sierra has trust issues which makes it very hard for her to trust Asher and open up with what is going on.
This was really an exciting story line that you cannot put down...you want to know what is going to happen with them.
I remember, many years ago, watching a TV programme called Tales of the Unexpected. It had a different tale every week and they all had clever twists at the end. This novella by John Isaac Jones, could easily have been included in that show and it left me thinking, but with a smile on my face.
It started out with the back-story of Karl Wainwright, and at first I thought it might be a biography of a computer genius. However, once Karl started searching for a second wife after the death of his first, I became more involved and was rooting for him in his project. Unfortunately this is so short (just over an hour in audio), that to try to relate any more of the narrative would give too much away.
I was listening to an audiobook, narrated by Tom Zainea, who did an excellent job.
