First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
This debut was a quick and light read. Darynda Jones was able to mix humor, the supernatural, and some sizzling sexual tension to create a perfect cozy read. Whether you enjoy paranormal, young-adult, or mysteries, this read is for you. Her humor is equivalent to Grandma Mazur's in the Stephanie Plum series. I could not put this book down. I even woke up early just to finish it, and I am not a morning person! The main character is diverse and well created. Jones gave the reader enough back history to understand the development of Charley throughout her life. I have a feeling the tension between her stepmother and the rivalry between sisters will lead to an interesting future book. I can not wait to read Second Grave from the Left.
