First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

She's a part-time private investigator, but it's her other job that's interesting.  Very interesting...

St. Martin's Press sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  This book is being published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Ms. Jones has created a character you won't soon forget.  She's pretty, she's mouthy, and she's tough.  She also has a paranormal power that lets her see the ghosts of people who have been killed.  This is a really handy trait for her uncle, who is a homicide cop.  But not all ghosts know who killed them...

She also adds another tantalizing male character that has some power over her.  It might be scary but he's really sexy looking and she enjoys his attentions.

They both have their secrets.

Solving murders with talking ghosts sounds corny, but I sure enjoyed reading this story.  You have a mystery, hot sexual tension, smart-mouthed conversation - what more do you need?

This is the first book from this author and it's a good one.  I can also tell there will be another one.  And I'll be looking forward to reading that one, too.

Visit your local bookstore and nab a copy of this book.  If you like this type of read, you're going to real sorry if you miss it.

If you'd like my copy of this ARC, leave a comment here on my blog, and then email me at info @ (take the spaces out) with your name and ADDRESS and tell me why you'd like to read it.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.
