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 wrong?
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.
As with many other big Charley Davidson fans, I was so anxious for this book to release! I wanted to know Charley’s reaction to the post-it note. How things were progressing with Reyes. Much to my delight, and the Charley way, everything is complicated. She has to find a missing person before one her friends becomes one as well, deal with a demon tricking people out of their souls, the Captain tailing her, oh, I could go on and on. So needless to say, Reyes has to wait his turn. I think in her mind she’s accepted but she is scared to actually confirm it to anyone, especially herself, and she’s not quite sure how to refer to Reyes. She’s pretty creative when it comes to names, as attested by her furniture and body parts, so she bounces a few ideas to describe what exactly he is to her.
I cannot express how much I love this series! Charley and the gang are always dashing from one predicament to another, just trying to keep themselves afloat, or as in this book’s case, keep Charley’s soul. She is so willing to give up herself for others, especially for her friends and family. She wants happiness for them all and can be sneaky to get that.
Reyes plays a bit of an overprotective boyfriend, but doesn’t over do it. He knows he can be there with just a thought, so he doesn’t hover over all of Charley’s escapades. Just enough to know he cares and to melt your bones with his attractiveness. He also can be very original when it comes to getting what he wants. Just wait until you see how he remodels things! Some knowledge of Charley and Reyes’s purpose is discovered. The ending is kind of a cliffhanger, but you are given enough information that you don’t want to scream in agony.
As with the first five books, I listened to the audiobooks. I bow down to Lorelei King. She is one of the greatest narrators I have ever listened to. She breathes the life into these characters that I love so much and gives them even more personality than I would have given them had I read the books. The snark and sarcasm is expressed perfectly. I listened to Night Broken by Patricia Briggs just before this and you would not know it was the same narrator. She gives each book/series/character their own little piece of her. It truly amazes me.
Sixth Grave On The Edge, as well as the rest of the series is full of suspense, wit, fun and romance so you can pretty much find whatever you’re feeling like reading at any given time. I can’t wait for Seventh Grave and No Body releasing October 21, 2014!
