Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!


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? 


If you were not shocked speechless by the ending of Eleventh Grave In Moonlight, I just don’t think you are allowed to be a fan. Just what the heck happened there?! I was left with my mouth hanging open. Probably long enough for a bit of drool to appear.

Charley has been learning so much about herself. I’m hoping that all these new and wonderful things can help her sort out how crazy her life is about to come. Even more so than usual, since her life is crazy as it is! My heart is aching for Charley and Reyes. I just don’t know what is going to happen there and I am DYING to know. This book can’t come fast enough. I need to make myself wait for the audio though. I think I will forgive myself this one time if I cave. But you guys remind me in my review that it was my choice if I cave!

Charley and the gang are releasing in The Trouble With Twelfth Grave on October 31, 2017. (Halloween!!) If you can, I have been recommending the audios, as I absolutely love them. The narrator does an amazing job, and the snarkiness and sarcasm just seem to come across better. Less than two months and we can see what is going to happen! Don’t miss it!
