"A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, missing people, errant wives, philandering business owners, and oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all"--… (mais)

Closing in on the end, and while I'm enjoying it immensely, it's clear that worldbuilding (and maybe backstory?) will probably never be Jones' forte. Again, though, I'm invested. This book and the one prior had really awesome cliffhangers, too--I'm so glad I don't have to wait. ( )

Listened to the audio narrated well by Lorelei King. She's narrated all of the book in this series and continues to do it extremely well.

In this installment Charley Davidson still hasn't let go of her investigation into Reyes Farrow's 'parents.' She knows they abducted Reyes Farrow and adopted him out to a monster and she believes they have done this more than once and she's determined to uncover their secrets and expose them. She also must find out who is terrorizing and stalking Cookie's daughter.

Reyes Farrow may be Charley's husband but he's determined to get her to drop her case and learn to use her powers, no matter what he has to do to achieve it.

Each installment we uncover a little bit more about Charley, Reyes and their powers, as well as a face off with another god and the angels of the Jehovah.

Reyes is determined to teach Charley to believe she's a god that can't be killed, except by another god and to control her teleporting and other powers. All of this while hunting for evil gods, investigating the fosters, finding out who is stalking Cookie's daughter and keeping their own daughter 'Beep' safe.

The first part was pretty heavy handed with the snark, but it calms a bit the deeper into the book we go and Jones leaves us with a cliffhanger. I really felt like she could have ended the book earlier and saved the last section dealing with the start and the cliffhanger for the next book, but that's just me. Thank goodness 'The Trouble with Twelfth Grave' has already been released so we don't have to wait to find out what happens.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

Think of the tv show Lucifer with Reyes Farrow as Lucifer and Charley Davidson as the Lieutenant.

The story continues but as more a recap of a previous episode than the going forward of the plot. ( )

In the last book, Reyes found out he was a god and that Grim Reaper Charley had a god glass that was made to hold Reyes by his brother God. Right now it holds one bad god and one demon and some innocent souls that a preacher placed in there in the 1400s. It requires you to know the name of the person inside to let them out and Charley doesn't know the names of the innocents so she can't let them out. The other two she put in there. Reyes's human sister was murdered and they have a continuous group of "people" watching over Beep including Osh, the former slave demon who is slated to be Beep's husband. She also threated God by saying that she was going to take over the world. Now she has angels following her around all over the place.

Shawn Foster comes into Charleys office which is an interesting coincidence because Charley is investigating his adoptive parents The Fosters who stole Reyes from his parents before dropping him off with the horrid man he grew up with. Charley believes that Reyes wasn't the only one and Shawn knows that he was adopted and possibly stolen and wants to know who his parents are. They told him they died in a fire when he asked. It also turns out that Shawn is half-angel half-human and that the Fosters are looking for pure souls to save and kill the unpure ones. Reyes wants her to drop the case. Also, for some reason, her Uncle Bob wants her to stay inside and out of the way for the next few days. That's not suspicious at all. They have a rotation of entities watching over Bob because he was supposed to die and go to Hell, because of something he did a few years ago that saved Charley but was murder, however, they thwarted that in the last book but they're not sure if they completely stopped it or not. And Bob is acting really weird to the point that Cookie thinks he's having an affair. Charley doesn't think that's it but has no idea what he's up to either.

Amber, Cookie's daughter, wakes up Charley and Reyes cutting herself with a knife and prophesying about Charley's future about how she's a god-eater and that she's going to ice over Hell. Stress brings out the prophesying and Amber is stressed out about being stalked on her cell phone. They're really nasty texts that indicate that the person is following her and sees what she texts to others on her phone. This person also threatened her stepdad Charley's Uncle Bob. Charley sets up a trap with Amber as bait.

With a god on this plane hunting Charley to kill her, Reyes is getting serious about Charley's training. He teaches her how to travel from place to place and how to dematerialize. He also gets it into her head that she is only a pinch human and nearly all god and therefore cannot be killed by dropping her off the top of a tall building. Charley plans on getting back at him for that.

This was another sizzling book by Jones who puts lots of heat and action and sarcasm to mix together to form the perfect blend of mocha latte that gets Charley going in the morning. Charley is a delightful character that you just can't get enough of and her regular cast of minions such as Cookie, Angel, Swopes, Bob, Osh, and of course her partner Reyes come together to make the perfect book. And as usual, she leaves it on that killer cliffhanger that has you begging for more. Not everyone makes it out alive, but that's true of all of her books. This was an amazing book and I loved it a lot. I give it five out of five stars.

The young girl behind the desk took the tried-and-true attitude of sheer boredom and transformed it into an art form. She barely looked out of high school.

This one was good! I mean, they're all good, but this is one of my favorites of the series. It had a lot going on. Charley learned more about her past and her powers, which was awesome. We learned about the Fosters and Reyes' past. And there was some nice smut thrown in to top it all off! I could have used more Swopes, but the seeing Amber and Ubie connect more made my heart melt. I love her so much! The pacing was really good, the book flew by so fast. And of course it ended on a cliffhanger, so now I have to start book 12 ASAP. I love these books, they make me LOL and are so interesting and easy to read. On to the next book! ( )
