Eighth Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones | Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Grown Up Book Reviews. It's been awhile. I have had a lot going on lately, and sadly that meant this blog took a back seat to working, end of school year craziness and like. I'll be catching up on reviews and others shortly. In the mean time, I was asked if I'd be interested in hosting a giveaway for a book that was recently released. Normally I don't feature a book or series I haven't read before, let a lone one I know nothing about, but I trust the judgement of the friend who asked about my hosting a giveaway. 

To celebrate the recent release of Eighth Grave After Dark, the newest installment in the award-winning Charley Davidson series from Darynda Jones, you can enter to win the entire series. Unfamiliar with the series? I am too. 

Here's a little bit about the series: 
The series follows the fun, sassy, and sexy adventures of Charley Davidson, part-time private investigator and full time Grim Reaper and coffee addict. I've been told that while this is an adult book series,  it does have older YA reader appeal. Again, I've not read this series or book, and I can't personally say. However, this does sound like a good read. Book 8: Eighth Grave After Dark released on May 19th.

Meet Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.

Charley sees dead people. That's right, she sees dead people. And it's her job to convince them to "go into the light." But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e., murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

Charley Davidson has enough going on without having to worry about twelve hellhounds hot on her trail. She is, after all, incredibly pregnant and feeling like she could pop at any moment. But, just her luck, twelve deadly beasts from hell have chosen this time to escape onto our plane, and they've made Charley their target. And so she takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. Of course, if hellhounds aren't enough, Charley also has a new case to hold her attention: the decades-old murder of a newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows of the convent.

Add to that the still unsolved murder of her father, the strange behavior of her husband, and Charley's tendency to attract the, shall we say, undead, and she has her hands full…but also tied.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author DARYNDA JONES won a RITA Award for best first novel for First Grave On The Right. As a born storyteller, she grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by, annoying man and beast alike. Jones lives in the Land of Enchantment, also known as Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her husband and two beautiful sons, the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys.
