My Thoughts

The PERFECT ending to a fantastic series!

Charley Davidson series done but never forgotten!

-T-shirt

WOW talk about going out with a bang! This really was the perfect cherry on top of this wonderful Charley Davidson sundae…. or probably more appropriate the whip on top of The coffee drink… this really was an exceptional series and I have enjoyed every single minute I have spent with these wonderful characters! I will miss them dearly and be looking forward to Beep’s spin off….

Charley has return to earth after being banished for 100 years… 100 years without hair product and caffeine does not a happy Charley make…. she also comes home to a hell dimension having been opened and demons snacking on the citizens of Albuquerque….. throw in a serial killer and a kidnapper and you’ve got a busy Charley…. what’s so wonderful about the series is even though there’s always a lot going on the main focus is on the characters and their relationships…. Charley’s romantic relationship with the smoldering Reyes… her brilliant friendship with Cookie, I don’t know about the rest of you but I’d love to go to lunch with these girls!And i absolutely cannot forget uncle Bob, Amber, Garrett, Artimus, angel, and so many more…. all the essential players are in this book and a lot of lingering questions are answered… and there are some definite surprises, very welcome surprises! If you are a fan of the series this is an absolute must! If you aren’t, do yourself a favor and pick up book one, I promise you will not be able to put it down until you get to book 13!

Goodbyes are never easy, but farewell Charley and gang, thanks for the memories you will be missed!

🎧🎧🎧 this entire series is narrated by Lorelei King and she does an amazing job of bringing Charley to life… I really could not imagine a better narrator for the series.. I really feel as though Lorelei and Darynda we’re on the same page when it came to the characters in this series. An absolute must listen!

🎵🎵🎵 Music running through my mind! There were a couple of songs that really went through my head during this one, but this is the one that stuck with me the most!

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake

Birds and snakes, and aeroplanes

And Lenny Bruce is not afraid

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn

World serves its own needs,

Don’t mis-serve your own needs

Speed it up a notch, speed, grunt, no, strength

The ladder starts to clatter

With a fear of height, down, height

Wire in a fire, represent the seven games

And a government for hire and a combat site

Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry

With the Furies breathing down your neck

Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped

Look at that low plane, fine, then

Uh oh, overflow, population, common group

But it’ll do, save yourself, serve yourself

World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed

Tell me…

-It’s the End of the World As We Know It, and I Feel fine: REM 1987

*** A huge thank you to Macmillan Audio for my copy of this book ***

About the Book


Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel. 

Have a wonderful day! Berit☀️✨

  1. So glad you loved the ending too! I’m so sad that it’s over and cried my eyes out, but I love how she wrapped it up! I’m holding out for a Beep series!! I do love Lorelei as a narrator! She does a great job with the Stephanie Plum books, so I can only imagine her doing Charley, lol! Wonderful review! ♥

    1. Yes she is amazing! I love her with Stephanie Plum as well another one of my favorite series! I think she also is Mercedes for Patricia Briggs series that I cannot remember the name of currently, I’m only on the second book in that one, another fun series though!

      Wouldn’t you love to hang out with Charley, Cookie, Stephanie, and Lula! And of course Joe, Ranger, and Reyes😍

      1. Omg, yes! I forgot she did the voice of Mercedes in the Mercedes Thompson series…I love that one too and have read them all…am impatiently waiting for Storm Cursed, which is coming out in May! It’s such a fab series and I’m glad you’re enjoying it-it only gets better!

        Omg! I’d love to hang out with all of them! I can’t even imagine! As long as they bring coffee, donuts, and chicken too I’ll be in heaven, haha! ❤
