E IS FOR EVIDENCE

Author:  Sue Grafton
Genre:  Mystery, Kinsey Millhone Series #5  
Published:  2005  
Personal Rating:  3/5 (just okay)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Mary Peiffer
Yearly Count:  74



Kinsey is framed for insurance fraud.

My friend adores Kinsey and never fails to bring up this series and then badgers me into reading more.  So . . . once again I tried the next one, and once again, I was not impressed.  The series, as a whole, seems to be running in the "just okay" zone for me.  I reassure my friend that I don't dislike Kinsey or the writing of Grafton, but I prefer other series.  Ohhh, but that doesn't appease her, she'll say, "Try ?" or "Try ?"  She is simply a diehard Alphabet Mystery fan, and I'm happy for her.  I really am. Wish I could be too.

  1. I read A through D a few years back and was never too impressed. They were "just okay" for me and I gave up on the series.

    1. Tara ~ We seem to be in the same boat. I think I have one more on my iPod, so I'll probably listen to it at some point. It breaks up other reads.

  3. 26 books I'm guessing? Too much commitment for me! I've always been curious but sounds like they're hit or miss with people.

    1. Trish ~ She hasn't made it to Z yet. I think W is the latest. They are not cozy mysteries, but they feel like it to me. I need more oomph in my books.

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ If you get to B, I hope you enjoy it. I may have liked it more if the series grew with the times.
