C is for Corpse
C is for Corpse | Grafton
46 posts | 97 read | 16 to read
Kinsey meets him in the local gym. Bobby Callahan is a scarred young man struggling back to life after a car forced his Porsche over the edge of a canyon, battering his body and muddling his memory. All he remembers is that someone, for some reason, tried to kill him. Desperate for clues about his own past life and certain he is being stalked, he asks Kinsey to protect him. Kinsey can't resist the brave kid - and neither can the killers. Three days late Bobby is dead. Kinsey Millhone never welshed on a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing. Now she'd find the killer.

Really enjoyed this one! Even though my mind went in 20 directions about the murderer, it still didn‘t feel overly complicated. Sue Grafton descriptions are such a pleasure to read and I love that the language is not dumbed down! The subplot regarding Kinsey‘s landlord was a nice addition too!

Another fun murder mystery! Plus a subplot with a shady lady dating landlord Henry. And I love how dated everything is, how all Kinsey‘s work is done without cell phones and laptops.

So I finished this earlier this week (just hadn't had time to update my Litsy in a while).

I love Kinsey. I need to get the rest of the books to keep going! But definitely glad I started this series!

Bought it at Half-Priced books :)

jessinikkip Because of you, I saw M in a free library in town and had to get it. Now I need the rest. Like I needed more books 🙄😝 2y
ElizaMarie @jessinikkip I don't think you need to read them all to get the most out of it. Each book has a new case so its might be okay to read alone. But getting more of Kinsey's character I am sure it helps reading the previous books. I need to start getting the others (I had been buying them at used bookstores and now... I might have to just wait for shelter in place to end) 2y
jessinikkip @ElizaMarie I will look into more later and see if I can jump in so late and be OK. Do you have M yet? 2y

ElizaMarie @jessinikkip no. I only had A, B and C (I gave A away... I can send you B and C --- I am almost done with C) 2y
jessinikkip LOL I was about to say I could send you M when Im finished with it! Would you like me to? 2y
ElizaMarie @jessinikkip sure. It will take me awhile to get to it (since I am trying to go in order since I started with A , B , and C in order). Also yeah... I can definitely send you the B and C sometime next week 2y
jessinikkip Thats fine. Take your time. I'll get on M once I finish the TBR for the month and pass it to you 2y
jb72 She has some good lines in her books. I may have to tackle them next year. 2y
ElizaMarie @jb72 I love them! I need to start getting the other ones. I will probably start ordering them from Half-Priced books soon. (I had decided when I started this journey that that's what I would do and then share them ... since I can't reread mysteries)

But they are super good!

One problem with re-reading mysteries is that it doesn‘t take long to puzzle out the motive and/or whodunnit, even after over 30 years! It‘s a good thing that this series has strong characters and great banter. It‘s interesting to see how author Grafton develops her techniques, as well.

This 2,000 piece puzzle is coming along slowly. Picture frame from Hipstamatic app.

ElizaMarie I love love love Grafton so far! I am excited to be starting this one soon. But I have enjoyed the other ones! 2y

ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 I personally could get easily addicted to puzzles but would need a dedicated space before letting that happen. This one is on a coffee table, not a place I‘d always want a puzzle. 2y

Starting on C is for Corpse (you can see my purchase date written in it 😲) and a 2,000 piece jigsaw puzzle🧩 that I had gifted my son a few years ago and which remained unopened until now 😆.

Lcsmcat We got a set of 5 jigsaw puzzles for Christmas that didn‘t get opened until quarantining began. We finished the first one last weekend. 2y
LeahBergen I was just thinking I might have to order a puzzle. 😆 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Lcsmcat it is a good diversion, isn‘t it? I think a lot of us are becoming puzzle fans (or more so). @LeahBergen good luck— apparently they are selling out online 😮 2y
Suet624 Starting a puzzle today. Mostly so I can finish an audiobook from the library before it evaporates into thin air. 2y

Book 3 done this one is my favourite of my re-reads so far.

We see slightly more of Henry and Rosie and the central mystery is entertaining.

Books are definitely now dated in this case we have casual references to the “black” help.

I did enjoy the flirty banter in this one.

This series is just too much fun!! I love Kinsey & her mishaps as much as I love her bravery! I also love how the case wraps itself up in a neat little package in 15 minutes!!! A fun twist in this one was her landlord's tryst with a sketchy minx!

Bookladylinda I love these on audio, so much fun! 4y

C is for...cookies! Last remnant of birthday celebration.

C is for...cousins. Kinsey has ‘em but doesn‘t know ‘em yet.

C is for...#CaliforniaGurls which applies to Kinsey and her cousins and the ladies at the insurance company where she sometimes works.

Happy Sunday, Littens! It has been a very snowy week, with feet upon feet of lake effect descending on upstate New York. This has made travel, work, and loads of other things difficult, and “midwinter mehs” are in full effect. Spring gets closer every day, though! #Twinkle doesn‘t let the snow get her down, though. She likes to roll in it. 😂❤️🐶 We have since come in from our walk and have curled up on the couch to read. #atoyreread

I was seriously underwhelmed by the halftime show and the commercials during the Super Bowl, so I spent most of it reading. This one, if I remember right, is a bit sad. 😔 Each book is better than the last, though, and I‘m excited to get started...hence the dark, uninteresting photo that I took while I read in bed. 😂

Still working through the alphabet mysteries I‘ve already read as I attempt to get back into them and caught up before Z comes out. This one is a bit heartbreaking, I think I remember it the most from my first dip into the series.

#bestnarrator I know that audiobook narrators are not what was originally intended but it's immediately what I thought of. A great narrator makes all of the difference. I love Judy Kaye's narration of the Kinsey Millhone series so she is my pick. #octphotochallenge Day 10

Also, pardon me as I inundate your feed with posts today as I'm behind on both photo challenges. #sorrynotsorry 😉

Somehow I got it into my head that I wouldn't like these books but I was hooked after the first one.

nicolekukral These make great audio books on long road trips! 6y
AliceInWonderLibrary @nicolekukral I love the narrator for the ones that I have listened to. It's great on the daily commute. 6y
BestOfFates My mom used to play these tapes on road trips so I find those readers so comforting! (There are two over the course of the series & both are great!) 6y
