    Every Audiobook in this series has made my favorite’s yearly list, and Seventh Grave and No Body is not the exception.
    I devoured this Audiobook; I love being back with this crazy, exciting, funny, sexy, dark and all around entertaining world.

  • icon

    The dose of mystery we get in every installment is once again captivating and engrossing, and no part is less important to the overall plot.
    Seventh Grave and No Body brings yet again another cohesive and intricate story that complemented with wit, funny moments and Charley’s sarcasms make it joy to follow her and her crew. I love the whole gang!
    Their agenda is always full; it’s always a treat to tag along.
    We discover a lot more about Charley, and in a well-timed and brilliantly plotted events we gear up to fight the enemies that have been sent to get Charley. No time to be bored in Charley’s world!

    All the efforts by Reyes to keep Charley safe in and all to himself (not a bad thing, if you ask will prove fruitless. With everything that Charley has on her plate, and her inability to stay put make this task near impossible for Reyes. But it sure was fun listening try and to see another side of our dark hero.

    Yes, The Charley Davidson series is addictive, and getting another shot of this fabulous creation by Darynda Jones is always a treat. I have to warn you tho. Do not listen to this installment without having read/listened to the previous books. Believe me! Every stop in this journey has been a blast! I loved The Seventh Grave Audiobook and now I can’t wait to get my ears on Eighth Grave After Dark.

    Seventh Grave and No Body Audiobook Narration

    Oh yeah! That’s the perfect Icon to describe Lorelei King’s performance, and there’s nothing new I can say different this time that I haven’t said here and here.
    Her timing for every occasion is perfect! From the sarcasm to the sexy moments to heartbreaking parts she makes you live them all. She won’t spare you any emotion.
    Lorelei King is as big of a part to this audio series as any of its characters; that’s a status accomplished by very few and testament to her talent.
    Her perfect comedic timing  and grasp of the characters make listening to these Audiobooks an special experience.

    • LOL Carmel I wasn’t trying to cheat… I always give away a copy of the Audiobook with my review of this series, but in this case since there were already copies of Seventh Grave up for grabs I though I’d go with the future release.
      You’re welcome! I knew your review was going to be fantastic and if could have I’d have copied it and pasted in here..LOL Instead I went with decorations to distract you from my writing…LOL
      I got the icons to use on the menu, but since I’m a plugin nut I thought I’d try them this way. That’s why it takes so long for my blog to load..LOL
      And so sorry I didn’t pimp for you enough yesterday, I was getting this post together and it took me all day..not That’s what I get for being a procrastinator.

  9. I just read Carmel’s review yesterday and she gushed about it too. Another blogger friend of mine is nuts about this series too. My audiobook TBR is loooong!

    • I know!! It used to be so much easier, but whenever you get a chance give the first book a go, I’m pretty sure you’d love it 🙂

    • LOL Anna! We won’t stop until you’re here with us gushing about the team 😉

  17. A friend recommended the series to me because it was one of her favorites. I fell in love with the quirkiness of Charlie and the sexiness of Reyes instantly. It’s an addictive series, and each book immerses you so completely that it’s over before you realize it.

      I highly recommend it. It must be read/listen to in order tho 🙂

  23. This one is next on my list. I want to start it so bad, but I just can’t make myself put one book on hold for another. I keep checking to see how many more minutes are in my current book, even though I’m enjoying it too, I just can’t wait to get to Charley and Reyes!
