Third Grave Dead Ahead (Charley Davidson #3)
by Darynda Jones
Summary: Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back! And she's drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hell-bent on murder when the devil's son just won't give up?

Third Grave Dead Ahead was awesome. I feel like Charley is becoming more powerful and realizing just how otherworldly she really is. She had a million cases in this installment to figure out, was experiencing pressure from her family, and wasn't able to get any sleep. When she bound Reyes to his body, she didn't realize that he would haunt her every time she fell asleep.
I love that there's not just one plot in the series. In each book, Charley is overloaded with cases and things to figure out, while also trying to help Reyes and figure him out as a person. I love the chaos of it all. In this book, Charley was also severely sleep deprived and living more off of a caffeine than she had been in previous books.
Third Grave Dead Ahead was even more dangerous because Charley was in the middle of so many perilous situations. And what sucks is that people close to her tend to refuse to tell her things to prepare her for dangerous situations, which happened frequently this time. But despite her frustrations, she tends to maintain a carefree façade and manages to crack me up in the meantime.
I highly recommend the series, especially if you're looking for a fun paranormal without all of the dramatic seriousness. Charley can be a bit much at times and super cheesy, but there's something awesome about all of it! I read this book waiting in a hospital waiting room for like 4 hours and it was the perfect book because it kept me entertained and in a good mood. This is definitely an awesome series.
