”The First Grave on the Right” is witty and humorous young adult fiction which you can categorize into Paranormal category. Here comes our kick ass heroine Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley Davidson, this name sounds more like a man’s name to me 🙂
Our heroine can see dead people, its like she is a portal for heaven. Dead people can cross and go to another world where souls belong. It is author Darynda Jones’s debut novel and first book in Charley Davidson series. She works as private investigator helping her uncle to solve murder mysteries. Because it is easy to find out who killed when a dead person comes and tells you who killed him. Crazy right, its freaky but interesting concept. Charley has to invest a case where lot of murders are involved and she gets into trouble with bad people. But she is in love with a weird person whom she can feel but can’t see. This soul comes in her dreams and gives all romantic experiences. Who is this? What is this mystery she is about to solve? How did she get this power to see this souls?
I liked the concept and humor. This book is fresh and lively read if you are into paranormal novels. My rating: 3 out of 5.
