  • Robin (Bridge Four)
    3.5 Welcome back Reyes stars Je t’ai aimée pendant mille et un. –R. I’ve loved you for a thousand and one. –R. Have you ever been reading a long running series and thought…’This might be it. This might be when I need to break up with you. Maybe it’s me, but no…I think it is probably you.’ I felt that way after Eighth Grave After Dark. The entire baby drama and some of the silliness that happened (I fell into a well and had a...
  • Carmel (Rabid Reads)
    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.The pacing of this series has been gaining speed with every new installment, so although I did find myself wishing that Darynda Jones would just get on with it already, overall I enjoyed the breather that THE DIRT ON NINTH GRADE provided. Also, what reader hasn’t wished for the power to turn back the clock, and re-discover their favourite characters all over again? This book allowed fans to do exactly that, well until t...

    Oh, she's back, baby! Kind of... well, she doesn't know who she is, or what she is, but she is still Charley to the core. "you're not what you think you are," he said."Yes, I know what I am.""You - you do?""I'm a time traveler...What are you?""I'm part of an interdimensional time investigation unit.""Shut the fuck up. Are you for real?""No," he said with a snort. So close. Well, not really. But, she knows she sees dead people. She knows she loves...

    "Je t'ai aimée pendant mille et un." -R. Guess what he said? :D (view spoiler)["I've loved you for a thousand and one." -R. He told her this in French!!! (hide spoiler)] *swoooon*3.5 Stars.. This might be my least favorite of this series, but I still love Reyes and Charley to piece.. I can't bring myself to give high stars for the story because it is not much interesting to me. ( The fun part? like it come at near very end! ) But still, I also c...

    My Blog Melissa Martin's Reading ListSigh......I really loved the first book but I didn't like this one :-(I read the first book and I loved it. I loved Charley and her snark and all of her friends and most definitely Reyes! I do own some of the other books, but I haven't read them as yet. This one book is not going to change me from going back and reading the prior books since I did love the first one. Charley has amnesia and going by the name o...
  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
    After that crazy ending from the last book, I couldn't wait for this one! Reyes and Charley had an amazing event occur but the situation had to be handled a different way. No one was prepared for how Charley would react...or where she would end up! affects everyone differently and for Charley, that meant losing her memory. She thinks she's all alone in a new town without a penny to her name. Luckily, her love ones would never let that ...

    Felling silent for now, waiting for # 10Bittersweet.Charlie, was so lost in this book, but still held her sense of humor and care for others. In the last book she lost so much, it is amazing that she is still alive. She feels alone but the strangers around her are not who she thinks they are. She is never truly alone. My heart broke for her, Reyes, Cookie and her family. Charlie is one of my favorite characters it's hard watching her suffer. it h...
  • Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
    If there's one thing Darynda Jones knows better than pretty much everyone else, it's how to keep a series fresh and exciting through more pages than one can count. Charley Davidson never gets old (no, really, she's more or less immortal), she never gets tired (supernatural beinh, duh), and she never gets bored… or boring, for that matter. There are very few series I love more at this point and I don't see that changing any time soon. We’ve re...
  • Maya
    ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I'm in love! Seriously, people, I'm gonna become Darynda Jones freaking stalker, because her books are to die for!!! I've waited so long for the new Reyes and Charley's book, it's not even funny. But now that I finally got to read this amazing and awesome story, it's all is forgiven and forgotten. That is of course only for the next few days. Then I'm going to star feeling all grouchy ...
  • Karen
    I'm pretty disappointed in this book. I want to start out by saying that I loved this series. Charley and the gang always made me laugh, had great adventures, and her and Reyes were hot! But then came book seven, I felt like the story line took a hard left turn without warning. I hated it, raged about it, even called up my friends, that are fellow fans, and cried to them. And book eight came out, I felt vindicated, total redemption! Characters we...
  • ♥Rachel♥
    3.5-4 Stars. The Charley Davidson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy/paranormal romances out there. Darynda Jones’ humor had me laughing out loud most of the book! She writes Charley with a sort of slapstick humor and her sidekick, Cookie is on the same hilarious, A.D.D. wavelength! The run of comedy has me snorting and giggling, enough to get some odd glances from anyone around, (something to keep in mind if you read in public) and so ...

    i am not humanly capable of waiting this long.... after that power packed finale of the 8th book.. dear god, save me. oh i love ms jones. this new arc to the series has me up in knots. this is going to be so very very awesome... i have never read a story so beautifully evolved as charley davidson. i can't wait to meet the royal baby again in this one..or ... see the love story unfold all over again...and .. most importantly... this might be a lit...

    With no memory and no real life outside of work, Jane struggles to understand this world and the other that no one else seems to see. She feels a sense of deep loss and as if she tries hard enough she can get a glimmer of what she seems to have lost. Jane also has a drive/compulsion to help people. Something within that makes her want to lend a helping had and fix a wrong.You can read the blurb for a more, but my review from this point on is goin...
  • Ferdy
    Spoilers-Another filler book, there was no need for the Charley getting amnesia plot, it didn't serve any purpose, all it did was drag things out. -Charley's amnesia was plain boring to read, her trying to figure out who she was and who Cookie/Reyes/etc were and generally being clueless was beyond tiresome. It might have been interesting if I was as clueless as she was as that would have added mystery, but I already knew everything so Charley clu...

  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    I struggled a bit with how the gang kept Charlie in the dark in this book. I won't mention anymore due to spoilers but I wish they had handled her dilemma differently. Despite that, I still very much enjoyed this book and I liked how Charley came back to herself even if it was sad. While Charley wasn't herself, a part of her still was. She got herself in all kinds of trouble trying to help people and still solved cases that were pretty exciting. ...
  • Mei
    I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.I can honestly say that I love Charley!!! She’s hilarious! Her inner musing make me laugh out loud in the most inappropriate moments! She’s the only heroine that I can forgive even if she’s doing stupid things!Anyhow, this book follows closely the last book in the series: Eighth Grave After Dark where we have left Charley in from of a diner with any clue of who she is. Are you ready f...
  • Marta Cox
    This series is unfortunately a bit hit or miss for this reader. I love the paranormal elements and the unique pairing that dominates but just sometimes I find myself rolling my eyes. This book follows on from the tragic events that kind of messed with not only readers minds but that of the heroine as well! Charlie has lost her memory and now we catch up with her working in a diner and calling herself Janey. Janey quickly realises that she is not ...

  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    How could I not be on the edge of my seat when starting this after how it all ended in book eight? I was so eager to find out what was going on and how Charley once again, got herself into the situation she did and more than that, how her beloved friends and family, were going to get her out of it. I have always loved the secondary characters in this series, they are just so fleshed out and lovable but my love for this fantastic bunch grew even m...

    Note: This review might have minor spoilers but not really any more than the synopsis reveals.I have been waiting for this book for 8 months and it felt like 8 years, the things that happened in the last book just blew my mind and then the ending left me trying to wrap my head around that book so I was waiting for this book to add something approaching normal back to this series …… and it did …. Well sort of normal.This book is almost like ...
  • Michelle
    ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review Darynda Jones has once again bewitched her readers in this new fun, comely and riveting read in the latest installment of the Charley Davidson Series. The Dirt on the Ninth Grave instantaneously picks off where it last left off in the previous book and I was instantly hooked. And how could I not be when the opening pages start off with "I see dead people." “I'd realized very soon after wa...

    My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars*BOOKS 1-8 TO BE DISCUSSED. DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED*Picking up where Eighth Grave After Dark leaves off, Charley has finally given birth to Beep, has already had to part with her, and has learned her true name. As feared, learning her true name causes Charley to lose control of her powers and she loses her memory completely and ends up in an alley in Sleepy Hollow, New York with no idea who she is. ...
  • Jen Davis
    3.5 starsI have very mixed feelings about this book. I love this series. I love the characters. The wit. The charm. The sexy and smoldering Reyes Farrow. And you can find all of those things in this book. So on one hand, I enjoyed it. I laughed. And I quickly warmed to amnesiac Charley, who –despite her memory loss– is essentially the same loveable person she has been since book 1. The problem is that this book felt like total filler. Other t...

    *Source* Publisher via NetGalley*Genre* Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*The Dirt on Ninth Grave is the NINTH installment in the Charley Davidson series. After a brutal ending to Eighth Grave After Dark, Jones picks up the story about a month after Charley disappeared, and now we find out that she ended up in Sleepy Hollow, New York with no memories, but the ability to see dead people, and know when someone is lying to her.

  • Melissa
    I have been a fan of Darynda's since I read/listened to "First Grave on The Right." Charley is so dynamic you wish she was real so you could be her friend and friends with the whole gang. I love learning more about Charley's uniqueness and hearing her inner dialogue. She says words out loud that someone might think to themselves, but never truly have the guts to say to another person. I just completed reading "The Dirt on Ninth Grave" and I am so...

    ohmigosh..... This book... wow...the review will follow as soon as I read it again (and get my emotions in check ;) )________________ My goodness.... January??This is me.... being miserable ... and kinda feeling lost without my Charley fix.And this next book will be amazing...!
  • Heather the Queen of (Smut)Books
    Ugh.And another series bites the dust. Charlie used to be cute and funny. She was my snarky, coffee loving BFF. But after nine books and no growth or maturity.....her personality just grates on my nerves. She is the epitome of the TSTL heroine. And.....yes, yes Reyes is hot. He is so HAWWWWWT. I hear you. I.will.not.let.your.incessant.fangirling.ruin.the.son.of.Satan's.greatness. Fuuuuuck, too late. Everything I used to love about this series is ...

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Charley has amnesia in this somewhat mellower installment which kind of feels like a reboot as she is learning to work with her “god” grim reaper powers.Opening Sentence: I stood beside the booth and poured coffee into a beige cup that had the words FIRELIGHT GRILL written across it, wondering if I should tell my customer, Mr. Pettigrew, about the dead stripper sitting next to him.The Review:...
