Giveaway: Charley Davidson Series


To help celebrate the 8th book in the hugely entertaining Charley Davidson series, I have a very special giveaway (prizing and samples courtesy of St. Martin's Press) to share with you all today! I've only read the first book in this series (SHAME ON ME!), but if you have yet to meet Charley (and Reyes!), then you're going to want to make time for them immediately. So. Good.

Before we get to the giveaway though, here's a brief introduction for those of you who are new to this series:


First Grave on the Right is the smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper..

Charley sees dead people. That's right, she sees dead people. And it's her job to convince them to "go into the light." But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e., murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

While 8 books is an intimidating number, I have little doubt they'll all fly by, so I can't wait to get caught up! Eighth Grave After Dark is out now, so here I come with the binge-reading Charley and Reyes!


Sometimes I wonder if the purpose of my life
is to serve as a cautionary tale to others.

Charley Davidson has enough going on without having to worry about twelve hellhounds hot on her trail. She is, after all, incredibly pregnant and feeling like she could pop at any moment. But, just her luck, twelve deadly beasts from hell have chosen this time to escape onto our plane, and they've made Charley their target. And so she takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. Of course, if hellhounds aren't enough, Charley also has a new case to hold her attention: the decades-old murder of a newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows of the convent.

Add to that the still unsolved murder of her father, the strange behavior of her husband, and Charley's tendency to attract the, shall we say, undead, and she has her hands full…but also tied. While the angry hellhounds can't traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders like evil sentries, so Charley has been forbidden from leaving the sacred grounds. Luckily, she has her loyal team with her, and they're a scrappy bunch who won't let a few thirsty hellhounds deter them.


While the team scours the prophesies, searching for clues on the Twelve, for a way to kill them or at least send them back to hell, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they've accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. Their presence is comforting. But the good feelings don't last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….

  2. I MUST read the series! But if I were to meet Reynes well... I think his actions and snarky moments would be worth it, from what I've read around blogsphere! Thank you for the giveaway!

  3. I haven't read this series yet but if I were to meet Reynes, I'm very curious about as to what kind of character and what's his personality is! Oh, I'm hoping I'll meet him soon! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I've heard the audiobook of the first in the series. Reyes is intriguing so far, but mostly he's interesting because he's hot!

  8. Oh, I am so excited about this! I have been DYING to read these books. As for Reyes, I'm very intrigued by him. I'm curious to see how he stacks up to other book boyfriends, if you will.

  9. Oh Jenny, you need to do some binge reading and catch up. I am currently listening to Eighth Grave and loving it. Always good for some laughs.

  10. I've only read the first two books in the series and Reyes is a very fascinating character. I haven't really had a chance to get to know him but from the books I've read, he is so dark and uncaring (which works due to his heritage) but he also shows snippets of a softer side when it comes to Charley. He's one of the most fascinating guys I've ever read in a series before. I really need to catch up with this series. Thanks for hosting this amazing giveaway. :)

  14. Loved First Grave on the Right, and the rest of the series is on my wish list! Reyes is awesome because he's not only mysterious, but completely devoted to Charley. Gotta love a man who rips out spines of his girlfriend's enemies. Could come in handy. :)

  19. Wow what an amazing giveaway! I've only listened to book one on audio, but so far I love his chemistry with Charley. He's incredibly swoonworthy, but the banter is what really has me hooked. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  22. I've read all the books except #8, so I'm very familiar with Reyes. I probably liked how he has sacrificed himself for Charley.

    thx u for the chance...

  24. I love this series so much! It's one of my all time favorites and I seriously cannot wait to read this one!
    The thing I love most about Reyes is his loyalty towards Charley, she always comes first regardless. He's protective without being an overbearing, which is a good thing considering Charley doesn't always listen to him.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)
