First Grave on the Right is by Darynda Jones.
It is a unique twist on the story of the Grim Reaper. In this take, Charlotte Davidson (aka Charley) is the Grim Reaper. However, she doesn't swing any scythes and doesn't run around in hooded cloaks bringing waves of doom with her.
Instead she is a loving person who puts others needs ahead of hers. She aides the departed in jeans and T-shirts or PJ's with ridiculous sayings on them.
Her world gets changed when she comes face to face with a man who has been haunting her dreams for over a decade. But he is far more than he seems.
All of sudden life isn't just the easy time of talking to the departed as it once was. Mr. Dark and Mysterious is in real need of her help and the rest of the world will just have to wait.
Sweet, snarky, tongue in cheek... the list could go on. I really enjoyed this book. I love the laugh out loud humor of those who say things that many of us dare to think.
I will gladly move on to book 2.
