Interview: Darynda Jones

Darynda JonesSo I keep hearing about this series call Charley Davidson by Darynda Jones and it’s suppose to be really awesome. Everyone keeps raving about it and I wanted to know more. So Larissa (from Larissa’s Bookish Life), Dana (Readaholics) and I spent a couple of hours with Darynda herself and picked her brain.  We did the chat a couple of weeks ago, but if you missed it, never fear.  You can listen to it now! Warning: We did focus on the series, so spoilers happened. We tried to keep the hardcore spoilers to a minimum, but we didn’t guarantee anything.

The third novel, Third Grave Dead Ahead, was recently released, have you read it yet?  What did you think?

DJones-Third Grave Dead AheadParanormal private eye . Grim reaper extraordinaire . Whatever . Charley Davidson is back ! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because every time she closes her eyes she sees him : Reyes Farrow , the part-human , part-supermodel son of Satan .

Granted she did imprison Reyes for all eternity , but how is she supposed to solve a missing-persons case , deal with an ego-driven doctor , calm her curmudgeonly dad , and take on a motorcycle gang hell-bent on murder when the devil’s son just won’t give up on his plan of seduction….. and revenge ?

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. I love the Charley Davidson series. The books make me laugh out loud a lot. I love the way Darynda writes with such witty sarcasm. I also love the little sayings she has at the start of each chapter. I can’t wait to read more books by her.

  2. I loved it. Charley is one of my favorite characters. She is snarky, sexy, tough and the Grim Reaper. I love the T-shirt/bumper sticker lines in each chapter. I only wish I had book 4 in my hands now.
