Casting Call with Darynda Jones + Giveaway

Darynda Jones as NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author with her Charley Davidson series. Charley is a grim reaper trying to get people to "walk into the light". Almost reminds us of that show Dead Like Me. When the people meet their end in less than savory circumstances, Charley goes all Nancy Drew on it. But a wayyy sexier supernatural sleuthing Nancy Drew. Today she's sharing who she would cast in Second Grave On the Left. Shemar Moore fangirls, hold on to your panties!

When Charley and Cookie (her best friend/receptionist) have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. A friend of Cookie’s named Mimi disappeared five days earlier. This friend then sends Cookie a cryptic message telling them to meet her at a nearby coffee shop. The coffee is brewing, but Mimi’s still missing. There is, however, a clue left on the bathroom wall: a woman’s name, scribbled by Mimi. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm’s way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?
