I started with "A" and am up to "R". I will be ordering the next couple of books for my nook soon. I look forward to each book as if I was catching up with an old friend. I enjoy Kinsey's adventures, issues, and spirit. I am upset that the alphabet has so few letters left. I have enjoyed the ones I have read and look forward to the ones that I haven't. Thank you, Sue Grafton, for this series.

I have read all the Kinsey Millhone mysteries and eagerly await each new one. However, I was very disappointed with the 'R' of the series. Kinsey does so many stupid things that it is unbelievable. What happened to the tough Kinsey? She comes across here as naive and just dumb. The ending is a bit foggy as well. I do hope Grafton gets back on track with 'S'.

    R Is for Ricochet

    This series has turned sour with the last few books. This one was stale and boring. I miss the days of A-M. Shape up Sue!

    R is for Romance?

    From page 127, 'I could feel my boundaries dissolve, desire cleaving the barricade I'd erected to keep the Mongol hordes at bay'. Yuck! I had to check to see if I picked up a Harlequin romance by mistake. In addition, I hate it when an author is too lazy to do any homework. On page 284 'Kinsey' claims there are 35 strip joints in Reno, NV. In fact, there were exactly two in Reno in the late eighties, where Grafton/Milhone are stuck forever. This book had hardly any plot, and who cares about her octogenarian neighbor and his family? Grafton has been faking it about four books too long.

    R Is for Ricochet

    Same old same old. This seemed like just a rehash of some of the previous books, and an easy way for Grafton to make some millions. She's losing her edge and this series is clearly deteriorating, which is sad when you take into account the fact that this series used to be brilliant until each one started repeating storylines and Kinsey turned into a boring, unfunny slob. I think I'm done with Grafton for a while. I WON'T waste my money on S.

    R Is for Ricochet

    This is my first book by Sue Grafton and probably my last. Her writing style makes it hard to get into the plot, and the main character was endlessly irritating. Skip this. I shoulda.

    R Is for Ricochet

    I like some of the other Kinsey Millhone books, but this one was just boring and everything the characters did was unrealistic and far fetched. A real yawner. Even Q was better, and I didn't like that one at all.
