First Grave on the Right

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked this book up with high expectations. I'd read a review of it somewhere, and it was a shining one, and let me tell you, this book deserves praise!

Charlotte "Charley" Davidson is a private investigator that helps her uncle Bob, a police officer with the Albuquerque Police Department, solve crimes. But, Charley isn't just a normal PI, oh no. She's also a grim reaper.... THE Grim Reaper. So, needless to say, she sees dead people.

I love Charley. She's a smart-mouthed bad ass chick that makes me want to be her. Prime example? She named her breasts "Danger" and "Will Robinson." I love it! She knows she's sexy, but she doesn't let that effect her too much. She does, however use it to her advantage when she needs to.

Unholy Ghosts

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was awesome! I love the premise, the world, and the characters!

Chess Putnam is a Church member. She is a Debunker, which means that she goes around trying to prove hauntings as false. See, in this world, there is no religion, only truth. And the Church are the ones who battled the ghosts away at the Haunting years ago. So now they are the supreme rule, and their members are held with respect and awe. When Chess can't disprove a haunting, she banishes the ghost to the City, the underground place where all spirits dwell.

But when she's pulled into a case by her drug lord (she's a secret addict), she might've bitten off more than she can chew. Bump wants her to get rid of ghosts at an airfield. And then a competing drug lord named Slobag, doesn't want her to get rid of the ghosts. While she's working this case, she's also working on a case for the Church. But both cases start having eerie instances…
