Darynda Jones – Charley Davidson Series Reading Order

by Maryse on January 28, 2012 · 14 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

What a fun looking series! The recommendations started when my friend put book #1 on her TBR list, saying “If it is ANYTHING like the old Showtime show called Dead Like Me (about Grim Reapers) I know I will love this.”

Then Valerie made this mention in a recent comment:

“… reading “First Grave on the Right” by Darynda Jones.  I really recommend her books.  I don’t want to give anything away about her series, but I can say it’s about a private investigator named Charley Davidson who also just happens to be THE Grim Reaper.  Her dad is a retired police officer who now owns a bar in which her office is located on the 2nd story of the building.  Her uncle is still on the police department and uses her in some cases since she can see dead people.  She is also very hotly involved with an entity that is other than human (like I said, don’t want to give away too much).

And thanks to Marisa for recommending it also!!

“Hey Maryse. Have you read a Darynda Jones book yet? If not, I can assure you, you will love her.”

Okay guys!! This looks like my cup of tea!! I’m on it :)

Hii there I’m like huge fan of Charley’s series and I think everyone should read it! I’m from a small country in Europe and we don’t have really good info about the USA books and I’ve been confused about how many the books from the series are.Somewhere I saw that there is that fourth book called “Fourth grave beneath my feet” and I was wondering if it’s true?I would be very greatfull if you can light me up about it! :)

Maryse March 4, 2012 at 4:39 PM

Hi Callie!! Thank you, you were right, and I updated the list. It will be out in October of 2012. :)

okay, I just finished reading the available books in the series tonight and I’m completely depressed that the next one isn’t due out until october.

The series even got an endorsement from JR Ward. (it’s on the cover of book #1, that’s what made me want to read it.)

Hey!! I just got started reading this series and i was wondering if anyone knows just how many books this series is going to have? Is Fourth grave beneath my feet the last book? or atre there still others to come?? thanks so much for helping out!!

Love them! She makes me laugh out loud :D These books are suspenseful, sexy, mysterious and hilarious! If you haven’t read them yet, I highly recommend them. I’m a JR Ward fan and she recommended them, so what the Warden says goes! LOL!

Amazingly fun and intriguing, I thought ahh another supernatural series, I’ll gibe it a try I do love my j.r. Ward but omg I wasn’t prepared for the complete and total awesomeness this series is. Its SOOO funny, has such a great story, characters, plot, intrigue and sexiness that is Reyes yumm,! The most bad boy in alpha maleness .seriously the son of satan! He’s met his match! I laughed, even had tears…. the characters and heart are sooo close…. and the story line is just…. unstoppable! Love it! Can’t wait for more from Darrynda Jones!
