Okay, I’m not going to keep this short because it appears I say pretty much the exact same thing in every single review… Just much I freaking adore this series How brilliantly funny it is. How deeply in love with Reyes I am. How fantastically crazy Charley is and how the storylines are always incredible…
So yeah, you get the gist… Haha
Quotes I loved:
‘I walked forward and stopped at the edge of the bed. “You. Reading. This is probably the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen a man do.”
His mouth widened and he finally looked up at me, closing the book in his hand and setting it aside. “Clearly you’ve never seen me pole dance.”
A bubble of laughter burst out before I could stop it.’
‘A grown man asking me if I wanted to “do it” was hilarious.
“We can still do it.”
I giggled. “No, we can’t.”
“I’m very creative with my mouth.”
“I’m well aware of that.”
“You should sit on my face.”
A bubble of laughter escaped again. “I am not sitting on your face. Oh, my god.”
“Just sit on my face. I’ll make all your dreams come true.”
“Cookie!” I said, astonished. “Why would you abduct my goldfish?”
She let out a hapless sigh. “How on earth did you figure that out? It’s a goldfish. They all look alike.”
“Belvedere had a white patch on his side. This… this impostor, does not.”
“Dutch, please,” he begged through gritted teeth, and I doubted he knew what he was begging for. And end to the pleasure or its indefinite continuation?”
It was incredible!! I cannot wait for the next book 😀
I love Charley and Reyes- please let the cliff hanger from the last book have a happy part in this book and not be doomed!…
4+ well deserved Stars- Loved it
Some authors struggle with keeping fans interested after 7 books in a series but not Darynda Jones.
They get better and better and you never get tired of listening to Charleys sass and inner monologue and you never tire of picturing Reyes in your head(yummy)lol
Great story line- follows on from where the last book left us and finishes nicely leaving us itching for the next installment
If the woman howling from the backseat of Agent Carson’s black SUV weren’t already dead, I would’ve strangled her.
Charley never ceases to make me laugh. In this installment of the series, Charley is pregnant with Reyes child, twelve hell hounds have been unleashed to rip her to shreds, her dad is missing and several people are missing after leaving strangely familiar suicide notes.
This series is like a bag of chips. I simply can’t stop when I start the book. I listened to this one which was new for me. It adds a bit to the story when someone brings the characters to life.
Charley is miserable because she has to give up caffeine during the pregnancy. Coffee is pretty much her existence most days. Her foray into decaffeinated coffee is a hoot.
The Hell Hounds are determined to destroy Charley and her unborn daughter, referred to lovingly as Bep (Black eyed pea: her current size) Charley enlists The Dealer to help her causes lots of problems with Reyes. Throw in her dead ex BFF and Charley is caught up a whirlwind.
In addition to the strange suicide notes, Charley tries to help a teenager whose body is missing from her grave and solve the mystery of a serial killer.
These books make me laugh. I love the quirky little starts to each chapter whether it is a T-shirt or a bumper sticker quote.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
