First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. 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 is 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.
Winner of the Golden Heart for Best Paranormal Romance, this is an exciting debut novel from an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.
