Book Review: Kinsey and Me by Sue Grafton

Kinsey and Me: StoriesKinsey and Me: Stories by Sue Grafton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I picked this up from the library last week thinking I’d never read it. Two stories it, I realized I had. So I’ll review what I can from memory.

If you’ve never read a Grafton before, it’s a good one to cut your teeth on. If you love the detailed mystery it will fall short. If you just like the character you’ll love it. I’m in the middle. So it gets a 3 star rating from me.

Good characters. Interesting backstory. Fun to learn about the author. I like the interaction at different parts or ages in Kinsey’s life.

Too easy to solve. Not long enough to get vested.

It is supposed to be this way tho. So I get it.

    I adore the Alphabet series. I was genuinely gutted to learn that Sue Grafton died! I haven’t read this though, so I’m really glad you posted it!

      I wish I remembered more about the individual stories so I could write a stronger review… but this was 26 books in all I read, so I feel she has been honored! 🙂

      They’ve been such a great source of fun for years. It’s one of the few series I’ve completed in entirety.

    I’m sometimes willing to forgive the mystery of the characters are great… but that’s usually when I’m already invested in the characters from previous stories in a series.
