This is one of the hardest reviews to write, because I really didn't know what to say without giving the plot away. Just saying I loved it wouldn't be good enough either.

When I grow up I want to be just like Charley Davidson,lol.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want to be a Grim Reaper. I want to be able to wield my words and use sarcasm the way she does. Plus, she is a very smart women and can hold her own.

We need more heroines like this. I laughed so hard. I think that this was the easiest book to read, because once I started I didn't want to stop.

The world building was great and we got enough info about Charley's gift to satisfy, but keep us intrigued enough to want to know more, because we know there is more. We as readers get to go on this journey of discovery along with her, because their are things about herself that she doesn't even know yet.

Reyes Farrow and Garret Swopes are the men that is in her orbit, and I am going to enjoy finding out if at the end of the day she ends up with either of them. Yes, right now she is more partial to one over the other, but you never know.

I don't want to leave Cookie out. She is Charley's best friend and I hope along the way she gets to have a romance also.

As for the rest, I love that she is the basically not quite human being,but she still has to deal with all of the drama the rest of us do, just on a larger scale. Hey, we don't have the added job of helping the dead cross over.
