A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, missing people, errant wives, philandering business owners, and oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all.

ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT continues the tradition of the Charley Davidson series of being sassy and fun with an undercurrent of danger and mystery.

As usual, Charley gets herself into trouble on multiple fronts, dealing with child kidnappers and haunted offices, amongst other things. The action was nearly non-stop and there were threads from multiple plot lines throughout the entire book, such as Charley learning about her past and trying to find out about the future. The normal cast of characters was there, and Charley and Reyes continue to be smoking hot together, which is awesome.

One thing that drove me a little nuts is that the book ended in a major cliff-hanger, which is something you think I would be used to with this series, but it always feels like I got run over by a truck. I cannot WAIT for the next book, THE TROUBLE WITH TWELFTH GRAVE, which apparently is coming out later this year.

All in all, I loved ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT, and I would definitely recommend it to any Charley Davidson fan. However, if you're not a fan, this series gets increasingly hard to jump into. So, my three star rating is definitely for new readers - ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT is a fun read, and Jones does a reasonably good job of explaining the back story, but you're just not going to enjoy it as much as if you're already immersed in the Charley Davidson world.
