"D" is for Deadbeat | Sue Grafton

Another good mystery! I enjoyed the fact that Kinsey thought she had finally narrowed down the killer and the story took a turn to reveal who the actual murderer was. And the whole book I was hoping it wasn‘t that person. I felt all the emotion she did about him and how the story ended. I think this is my favorite story out of the first 4!

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!

B is for Burglar is the second book in the series and I am loving Kinsey! She is a great character. I continue to like the fact that the story isn‘t overly complicated and confusing, and I love that the vocabulary isn‘t dumbed down for the masses. Makes this teacher heart happy!

"A" is for Alibi | Sue Grafton

My mom loved the Kinsey Millhone series and I inherited most of the set from her. I just finished “A” is for Alibi and enjoyed it. It was a quick, easy read and was not complicated. I enjoyed that it didn‘t have so many twists, which is more realistic to me. Now, on to “B” is for Burglar!

Chestnut Street | Maeve Binchy

Maeve Binchy is one of my favorite authors and it was nice to read one last thing from her. The stories were short, quick reads, but told a story in a way that only she could do.

Quick, easy read because it is a script. I enjoyed knowing where the main characters ended up and I love that a Potter and a Malfoy became friends, but some of the dialogue was odd and it left me wanting more information.

Great, easy read. I enjoyed getting the story from the perspective of each sister. They both had problems, but in the end they realized what mattered most.

Started reading this book and loved that it takes place in Atlanta because I am familiar with many of the places it mentions. Then on page 64, my hometown of Macon was stated as being the home of one of the characters‘ ex-boyfriend! Love it!

Very disappointed in this addition to the VR series. The writing was sloppy, repetitive and boring. The continuity from the previous books was not good and the storylines between Kaylee and Landry and then the 2 of them and Megan, were way underdeveloped. If you love the series and just have to read them all, then have at it. Otherwise just skip it.

Those Riordan boys get me every time! Love that Patrick and Angie found each other at a time when they needed someone special to help them. Her assertiveness was wonderful and his caretaking was ideal. Jack and Luke had me laughing with some of their lines and I‘m adding this to one of my favorites of the series.

I love, love, love Nora and Tom! Almost as much as Shelby and Luke! Maxie and Jed are also fantastic characters! One of my favorites in the series!

I love Katie!! She‘s tough and independent. I like that Dylan liked those things about her too. Still don‘t like Conner though! Would love for Dylan‘s grandmother and her driver to have their own book.

Really like Leslie, but Connor is a bit odd. He was supposedly written as an honest, straightforward guy, but he‘s really socially awkward at times. I also didn‘t like the storyline of Leslie‘s ex husband. Just some ok storytelling.

Love that Denny got his story and excited that Becca will be the new teacher in town. Great story about love, loss and finding that love again!

I enjoyed Kelly and Leif‘s story. In several ways it felt like the story of couples you actually know. Courtney‘s thoughts and feelings were accurate for a 14 year old experiencing sudden loss. Love that Jerry returned to help Courtney and hope to see him again!

I loved this one! Colin and Jill quickly became a favorite couple. I was sad that Denny didn‘t turn out to be who we thought he was, but glad he will still be in Virgin River. These Riordan brothers continue to be my favorites! How do you pick just one? 🤣

Not my favorite book in the Virgin River series. I wasn‘t impressed with Clay. He actually kind of annoyed me. I did like Lilly and Dane and their friendship. I feel like Robyn Carr through in just enough Native American information to try and make you believe she researched the information, but to me it just felt contrived.

I really enjoyed this one! I was happy to have Shelby and Luke‘s story continue! The Riordan brothers are becoming my favorites and Aiden may be my absolute favorite of them! I enjoyed his story and was glad that he found someone in this book! Mel finally grieving the loss of having more children naturally was a relief.

I enjoyed Franci and Sean‘s story, but again the problem guy was oddly developed. I love that Maureen and George found each other and I‘m dying for Vivian and Carl‘s story to continue. I got a little more of my favorite couple, Shelby and Luke, so that was nice!

While I loved one of the new main characters, Ellie, I was a tad disappointed in the “bad guy” who was out to get her. I felt like he was lazily written. I also think the information about Noah was very repetitive so his character lacked depth and the explanation for Nick‘s very bad behavior throughout the series, was supposed to be accepted as men are stupid. I was happy that Shelby and Luke got married, but I wish they had appeared more.

I love Cameron, but Abby is kind of blah. I also felt like once their big event happened, they just disappeared. I was happy that Dan was in this book and I hope that he and Cheryl get more page time in more of the books. I enjoyed reading more of Walt and Muriel, but missed Shelby and Luke.

I have been enjoying the series and after the last book was worried Robyn Carr had run out of steam, but then in walks Shelby and Luke! By far my favorite couple and by far the best book to me! Reading more of Muriel and Walt‘s story was also great. These 2 couples feel a little more realistically written and I appreciate that! I also love Luke and Art and I am excited to read Cameron‘s story! The only bad part of the book was Doc Mullins. 😭

I really wanted to like Vanessa and Paul, but they didn‘t just click for me. However, Walt and Muriel intrigue me and I hope they have their own story soon! I was happy to see that my initial theory about the illegal grower was finally, actually stated as being possible. I want his story told too! Joe and Nikki were my favorite part of this book and I am excited to see where this relationship goes!

Octoberwoman Nice to see someone felt the way I did about this book! 10mo

I really enjoyed Marcie and Ian‘s story. I hope they show up in more books! And the title is a little deceiving, not a lot of Virgin River or Christmas in this one.

I like the new characters that were introduced and new storylines for characters that appeared briefly in other books. Looking forward to Paul and Vanessa‘s story continuing! A plus for me was getting a little confirmation about something I have suspected since the first book. Waiting to see how that eventually plays out.

I love Preacher in the Netflix show, so I really loved reading his story! This was an easy, enjoyable read. Now I‘m ready for Paige to return in the next season!
