Blodeuedd's Monday Review: The Dirt on Ninth Grave by Darynda Jones

In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.

But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her—even from her new and trusted friends—the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way. 

My thoughts:
I do confess, it was soooo annoying reading this book. I really hope it did not reflect on how I liked it. See, the formatting sucked. I hate uneven edges, I hate when you turn the page and there is one word there, and then one on the next.

Ok, Charley has amnesia after a meltdown. Angels want her to leave this life. Her friends want her back. She works in a diner. All her friends are in town and trying to subtly nestle themselves into her new life without telling her YOU ARE CHARLEY!

The kid thing is still, omg, no, I could never do that.

Reyes, well i did like that she met him for the first time again and thought he was hot, mmmmmmm *melts into Reyes puddle*

I did like that she had her snark. That she solved 2 mysteries. It was old Charley you know. But what I did not like was that time stood still, nothing could happen to move the actual plot forward.

Reyes! Oh I forgot myself. I meant to say good book.
