Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet - Book Review

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson #4)
by Darynda Jones

What is it about:
Sometimes being the grim reaper really is, well, grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple of months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above...or at least get dressed. It becomes clear something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. But the more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved.

Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans in this hilarious fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling series.

What did I think of it:
This series keeps being fun and suspenseful.

I liked that Charley isn't indestructible. At the start of the book she is suffering from trauma caused by the events in book three. I felt for her and cheered her on.

The case she gets involved in is cool and intriguing. I kept trying to guess what was going on. There were some surprises along the way.

The storyline involving Reyes and the demons was both thrilling and frustrating. Of course there is another woman to make Charley jealous, and Charley falls for it. Still I was too invested in the story to be really annoyed. The demons are a lot more interesting than the love drama though.

All in all this is a fun and very entertaining addition to the series. I'll be reading the next book soon.

Why should you read it:
It's a very enjoyable UF read.
