Blog Tour: "Dirt on Ninth Grave" by Darynda Jones

Hi everyone! This is a special blog post for Darynda Jones's DIRT ON NINTH GRAVE, which is the ninth installment in the Charley Davidson series coming out January 12th, 2016! Recently, I've finished reading the first and second book (FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT and SECOND GRAVE ON THE LEFT), and I've really enjoyed these books! If you've never read this series before, the main character's name is Charley Davidson, who's a part-time private investigator but full-time Grim Reaper! It's sort of like a combination between the TV shows "The Ghost Whisperer" and "Jessica Jones," but with a sassy and witty protagonist!

*Warning* If you have not read the previous books of the series, I highly suggest that you do not the synopsis that I've included at the end so that you don't get spoiled!

About Darynda:

For reasons known only to the Big Guy upstairs, NYTimes and USA Today Best Selling author Darynda Jones won both a Golden Heart and a RITA for her manuscript FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT. But even before that, she couldn’t remember a time she wasn’t putting pen to paper. When she was five, she would pick up a pencil and notepad, scribble utter chaos onto the page and ask her mom to read her masterpiece aloud. Thankfully, her mother would play along.  Later she wrote plays for the neighborhood kids, made up stories for her brother as he played cars, and fell in love with Captain Kirk. Those raging, seven-year-old hormones only fueled her imagination, prompting her to create fantastical stories for Barbie and Ken to enact. Ken was such a bad boy back then.

In a small village in New York Charley Davidson is living as Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.

But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her-even from her new and trusted friends-the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

  1. I'm going to skip the synopsis and go look up the earlier is rare you see a series with enough steam to do nine books! A witty, sassy protagonist to boot? I just finished Dreaming of Babylon, so I'm in the mood for more private eye stories at the moment :)
