I’m pretty sure Charley Davidson is my soul mate. (Sorry husband.) The lead character in Darynda Jones’ series of the same name is hilarious, full of life, and kind to all she meets. (Read the VBC review of First Grave on the Right.)
Charley is a private investigator and consultant to the police. Her ability to talk to the dead murder victims’ spirits makes her especially helpful on murder cases. She tries to stay under the radar and avoid people knowing about her abilities, but those closest to her kind of figure it out when she starts talking to invisible people.
If you like Charley, you’re going to like Beri O’Dell from Rinda Elliott’s series. (Read VBC’s review of Dweller on the Threshold.) Beri is tough, fierce, loyal protector of the people in her ragtag family. She has no idea where she came from, or who (and what) her parents were. She knows just a few very odd things about herself. She can astral project, and talk to people’s spirit guides. Both Charley and Beri are strong, determined, and don’t see themselves as heroes.
Loved the romance and steamy scenes in the Charley Davidson series with Alpha Showdown 2014 champion Reyes Farrow? Wait until you meet Nikolos. He’s a tall, dark, and handsome, ancient-Grecian warrior, who falls (nearly instantaneously) in love with Beri. And let me tell you, the things he does and says are A+ swoon material. He’s definitely a candidate for an Alpha Showdown nomination next year.
If you like lots of action, wit and a sweet, steamy romance, you’ll love these books.
