Second Grave on the Left - Darynda Jones Rating: 4.5 stars

Grim reapers are to die for.

Following the late night adventures of Charley Davidson, Second Grave to the Left has everything that made First Grave on the Right such a huge hit. This series is phenomenal, and a huge breath of fresh air from the average PNR book.

Charley is one of the most unique heroines I've ever come across. She is usually completely random and hilarious, but can also be amazingly sharp when the situation calls for it. Of course, the inhuman amount of coffee she consumes may have something to do with that.
"Starting with my left pinkie toe, we have Dopey, Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy, Queen Elizabeth the Third, Bootylicious the Patron Saint of Hot Asses, and Pinkie Floyd.”

There's not as much of Reyes in this book as I would have liked (which would have been having him on every page), but we find out a lot about his life as a human. I really like his mega-sexy alpha personality and I fell in love with Reyes one scene at a time, but this physical description totally sealed the deal for me: I am besotted with this guy!
His eyes [were] the color of coffee in sunlight.

The only reason this book gets 4.5 stars instead of 5 full ones (despite what GR says) is because I found the whole deal with Mimi and the killings to be rather boring. Charley's humor and the quick-paced action kept the ball rolling, but I still couldn't really get into the plot this time around. I wish the story would have focused on Reyes more and Mimi less.
