Melissa's Review:

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight is book 11 in the Charley Davidson series. I'm currently binge listening to these so I can catch up. Book 12 just released on Halloween and it gave me the excuse I needed to marathon these. If you're not familiar with the series, our leading lady is a PI and a grim reaper, there's typically a case she has to solve and there's some sort of ghostly element in each novel.

In this installment we have a lot of Charley-time. With Reyes's help, Charley is learning what all it means for her to be a goddess, she's learning how to control some of her powers though still isn't that great at it. She's learning more about her past but that isn't the only trip down memory lane we get, interestingly enough the case Charley is working on is uncovering more about the Fosters, the people that took Reyes when he was a child. Reyes is dead set against her getting near them but in typical Charley Davidson fashion, we dive headfirst into all the trouble. If that isn't enough, someone is sending nasty messages and stalking Cookie's daughter, Amber. Once Charley and the gang find out they set up a plan to catch the culprit. While we learn a ton in this installment I have a feeling it's leading up to something big in the next book. Only time will tell!

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight is a great addition to a series I love. I really enjoyed that we learned a bit about Reyes and Charley's pasts, I'll admit to being curious about Reyes for quite some time now and was glad to see some light shed on him. My only complaint is the huge cliffhanger at the end of this book and I'm so glad I waited for book 12 to come out before I read this one or I would have been going nuts. Other than that, I'm still loving this series and can't wait to see what happens next.

The Narrator:

Lorelei King did a great job on this novel as always. She's one of my favorite narrators, and with good reason.
