I'm really enjoying the character development that's happening for Kinsey alongside the main plot of the last few books in this series. This one has an excellent, interesting mystery to go along with it - I can't actually remember feeling so sad about the body that turns up in any of the previous books.
Thus far in the series, this one is going to be quite memorable. Kinsey searches for the son of a wealthy family who disappeared 19 years ago. The father has died and the family needs the missing son to resolve the will. The story took a lot of unexpected turns and kept me engaged. #MountTBR
My birthday haul!! 😍😍😍
I only need “The Living Daylight” en “The Spy Who Loved Me” to have the complete Ian Fleming James Bond series
And 5 Alphabet Novels: N/R/S/U and Y
#KinseyaWeek book 14
My new favourite book in the series so far. I love the way Kinsey is developing and how the reader learns more about past and family each time.
I enjoyed the odd hints of the supernatural thrown into this one and the snarky sense of humour.
1. I reorganized the pantry over Christmas. You know it‘s Maryland because of the six containers of crab seasoning on the shelf.
2. I need to clear out the Overdrive clutter before I buy another ebook.
3. I say 38, but my sister says there are three more that we visited when I was too young to remember.
4. Tagged book is the only one missing from my Sue Grafton/Kinsey Millhone collection.
5. Yes! More details as it gets closer.
I‘ve kept track - there is only ONE book in the series so far that Grafton does not mention bougainvillea. Most of them mention it more than once. 😂 (I had to look it up way back at “A is for Alibi” because it doesn‘t grown in NY and I wondered what it was. Now I kind of chuckle every time I see it.) Closing in on my first hour mark for #13inThree. 🎉🎉
(Image is from Google, as it‘s too dark to photograph my reading at 445am.😜)Going to start this as my first #13inThree read. Hiddensee is really good, but too complex to take in while on pain meds, and I want be able to appreciate the subtle points of Maguire‘s writing. I needed some “easier to digest” fare.
A very gripping and engrossing tale. Of the entire series this is by far my favourite. The book follows the disappearance of Guy Malek who's from a wealthy family and well known for his tyrannical incidents. Considered the black sheep of the family, he's sought after the death of his father to claim his inheritance.
I'm making progress with these but they are mostly a welcome change from the internalised misogyny of the Sue Grafton series.
@saguarosally The M was mysteriously hiding underneath the L. Out of sight. So I'm posting a picture of the M for you. LOL. Because my OCD would act up if I could not see the M. 😀📚
