Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones

A couple weeks ago we had the privilege of being apart of Darynda Jones' blog tour for her newest book Fifth Grave Past the Light. At the time of the release I hadn't had the opportunity to get the book so my review had to be postponed. *slaps own hand* Bad Grimlet! *silly grin* Now I have read it and I had to make myself take breaks so it would last longer than my normal 4/5 hours for a book. I wanted to savor it. But now that I have read it I'm going to have to re-read the whole series because waiting for the next book is going to have me on pins and needles. 

Once again Darynda has done an outstanding job with Charley and Reyes. I have always loved the chemistry between the two and things heat up in this book. Can the son of Satan get any hotter?? *fans self* Evidently yes because the man can cook!!! (*yells* "Can someone bring me a fan!!") I have really enjoyed following these two characters' journey from the first book. Charley alone has me laughing between her smartass comments, the greetings she using when answering the phone and her coffee addiction. But who can blame her for the java addiction?  (**raises hand** "Hi my name is Kimberly and I'm a Coffee-holic") 

Some of my favorite characters where not as front and center as much in this book but that's ok. Swopes has been busy trying to sort things out and who can blame the man? I just always love the banter between him and Charley. Cookie was seen in text messages for part of the book because a girl has to get her CCDW or she might accidentally fire a gun while in a bar. *raises eyebrow at Cookie* I sure hope her and Ubie get together. This kinda "cat and mouse" they are pulling is killing me!! 

Because I don't like to give a lot away about the books I read. I mean hello if you are intrigued you have to read them yourself. But this was me after finishing reading this book. 

Saw this gif on Goodreads from someone who reviewed the book and yes this was me too!!! *laughs*

One of things that I love the most about Darynda's books is that there is mystery. After reading the first two books I started to learn to take every little thing and find out what it means. Because by the end just about everything has to do with something. Darynda is such a talented writer. I love being put on the end of my seat looking to find out answers. I love laughing at the comedy and the antics of the characters. I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! 

If you have not read this incredible series I suggest that you do. It is fantastic! After raving about it to my fellow Sister Bitch she's reading it as well and totally hooked.
