Audience/Genre : Adult/Urban Fantasy.
Publication : October 30th 2012 by St. Martin's Press.
In Darynda Jones's Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.

First off, I love Darynda. Charley is one of the coolest characters I've ever read and Darynda's humour always has me looking forward to reading the books in this series. In Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, we finally find out more about Charley. Although we only get bits and pieces, it's enough to keep you engrossed and dying for the next book. The story begins with Charley still mad at Reyes; she has locked herself up in her apartment for two months without working but a new case finally comes along and the story picks up.

I'm kind of in the middle of a love-hate relationship with Reyes. He's hot as ever but I get mad every time he refuses to open up to Charley. The dude brings out my trust issues.
The best part about this book is that we finally get answers. The story's taking a definitely interesting direction and I can't wait to see how the the overall plot develops.

I just knew that that the book was going to end the way it did and I absolutely can't wait to get more Charley, Reyes and Cookie. As usual, Darynda doesn't disappoint. Charley Davidson is a must-read adult UF series!
