Charley Davidson Series by Darynda Jones…on Audiobook

The wonderful team at MacMillan Audio has shared with us
a little snippet from FIFTH GRAVE PAST THE LIGHT.


I drove to Calamity’s and parked in my usual spot. The spot where I’d put up a sign saying no parking: violators will suffer from several exotic std’s for which there is no cure. It seemed to do the trick. My landlord didn’t especially like my tactics, but everyone was a lot happier when I had a parking space. I walked over to the bar and ducked in the back door.

The place was packed. On a Sunday. At lunch. On a Sunday. And once again, women seemed to be the main enthusiasts.

“What’ll you have?” Ubie asked when I walked to the table he’d snagged. I couldn’t believe it. Jessica was there again. What the freaking hell? Had she moved in?

Emaciated from watching Nicolette eat her breakfast burrito, I said, “I’ll have my usual breakfast fare.”

“You got it, pumpkin.” He waved over our server. She was new, so I didn’t know her name. Because of this, I was forced to call her Sylvia. “She’ll have huevos rancheros with scrambled eggs, and I’ll have a carne adovada burrito smothered in red.”

“So, we’re going to the actual site, yes?” I asked him as Sylvia wrote down our order.

“Yes, and I know how you are with dead bodies.”

Sylvia paused then restarted, pretending not to hear us.

“How am I with dead bodies?” I asked.


“Oh, right.” Dead people I could handle. Dead bodies not so much.

“It amazes me that you deal with dead people all day every day, but toss a dead body at you, and you turn into a girl.”

“I am a girl,” I said, utterly off ended. “And I happen to know plenty of men who would rather eat fried worms than come face- to-face with a dead body.”

“Okay, sorry. That was sexist.”

He best be sorry. “So what’s up with this new cook, Sylvia?”

“Um, it’s Clair.”

That was disappointing. Now I knew her name, but she’d always be Sylvia to me.

Sounds interesting


I liked the excerpt.


Lorelei King is an amazing audiobook narrator. Love this series. Charley’s snark and humor especially with Cookie keep me laughing for hours. Great spotlight on audiobooks, they not get enough love.


Love her books!

Crystal Guidroz

This is one of my most favorite series and I have read all the books to date. I have actually never bought an audio book, I have had my kindle read to me, but I don’t think it has the same effect. I just may have to try this series on audio book version. Thanks for the giveaway!


What a great excerpt and giveaway. Thanks for sharing.
