One of the things that makes Charlie different is that she's actually the Grim Reaper... she doesn't just see dead people, she's their door to Heaven. No pressure, right? Some of my favorite moments in the books are with Charlie talking to, or arguing with, the deceased who are almost constantly around her.
The characters are all well written. The stories are funny, interesting, unpredictable and believable (yes, even with the dead people and Grim Reaper angle).
As I mentioned, I listened to the audiobooks, read by Lorelei King - who did a phenomenal job. Ms. King also read the Stephanie Plum books, so she's got spunky, witty and unconsciously funny women down pat.
I highly recommend all three books, and hope that Ms. Jones keeps them coming!
Sorry, I just couldn't come up with a good way to go from a book review to today's picture challenge... lunch...
