About the book:

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.

Grab a button!
Hope you see you all signing up! It's going to be so much fun and it's always a blast to meet new people!

Chapters 1 - 5 Questions

1.  We meet some of Charley's ghostly "buddies," do you believe you have ever had a ghostly encounter?

2.  Charley named her jeep Misery.  Have  you ever named your vehicles? What did you name them?

3.  Charley says her name "...brooks no opposition. It takes shit from no one."  What do you think your name says about you to strangers?  Is there a different name that you think would suit you better?

4.  Charley says her best friend Cookie is "like Kramer from Seinfeld, only not so nervous, like Kramer might have been on Prozac."  Give us your best description of your best friend.  How would they would describe you?

5.  Garrett is reluctant to believe in Charley's abilities, how would you react if a friend divulged to you that they can see and speak with the dead?



  1. This is such a great series--if I weren't already doing a read-a-long in August, I'd totally be in. Guess I'll just stick with commenting this time around. Happy reading :)

  2. Tha ks, girl for doing this! I know you are a fan now!

  3. WOAH! It's that time already? Well, I'm one that isn't sad to see summer almost over.

  4. Sounds really fun! can I do the answers in my Goodreads account? I don't have a blog I can use for this purpose :(

    and I have questions for Darynda!
    1. What inspired you to write Charley's character?
    2. How did Reyes know when she will be born?

    Questions for Charley
    1. who was your first boyfriend? I somehow don't see you with a straight A student who's aiming to be the next president of the US :D
    2. Why can't you trust the man you love more?


I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!

XOXO Jen the Bibliophile
