Not a fan of the ending, but as usual loved the book anyway. Have loved the entire series so far. ( )

Another very good part of the series in which Kinsey rents office space from murderer brothers.

Liked it but not the strongest entry in the series. ( )

Most of the books in the alphabet series are just pretty good for me. I don’t know what’s different with the letter P, but I loved it. In this one, there are multiple plots and a lot of characters. One major piece of the job Kinsey is hired, is solved, but it brings up more questions. Kinsey rents new office space and that brings about a whole slew of other problems and shady characters. There’s even a little drama with Henry, her landlord. The ending was wrapped up a bit differently too. ( )

I love Kinsey Millhone. But she's not everyone's cup of tea. I started reading the Alphabet series a few years ago - I think at the time it was up to O is for Outlaw. The idea of a mystery series each title beginning with a new letter amused me. I don't know why. I don't think it's particularly original. At least - I've seen a few others since. At the time though it was new to me and it just struck me as perfect. I flew through the series. Kinsey is riveting. She's brash and harsh and charming. She's fierce and flawed. She gets scared. She holds her own. She pushes herself to run often and tackles cases without judgement and with an open mind. Rosie and Henry are brilliant and I love the little family she builds around her.

But Kinsey Millhone isn't Jack Reacher - her speed is more Tracy Crosswhite. [book:My Sister's Grave|22341263] Her cases aren't full of action and high speed chases - they're slowly nitpicking away until something clicks into place. She writes down all her thoughts and places her facts and ideas on 3x5 index cards - which she often shuffles and rearranges to help her solve her case. And I love it. Kinsey Millhone is great - but she's not for everyone.

For some reason I've seen reviewers compare this to Stephanie Plum - I don't know why - this is absolutely NOTHING like that. Stephanie Plum is a very different character and an extremely different type of book. That's more fluff. Kinsey Millhone is more procedural mysteries. And this series isn't current - it was first published in the 80's - there's not really technology. Messages were relayed by calling the landlines. Paper files were still the main form of storage. Not everyone will enjoy reading this. But if you like your mysteries to be more like procedurals with a determined and fierce character - Kinsey Millhone is for you.



I love Kinsey. She's a little bulldog terrier when she has a case. Poor Dana (from J is for Judgement - she was married to Wendell who disappeared after stealing all the money from his Ponzi scheme.) who may just have to accept that she has shockingly bad taste in men. Poor Kinsey who is also probably never going get another referral from her.

The mystery in this one was a bit convoluted. All my guesses were wrong. On the other hand I did have my suspicions about Maria (the insurance agent who is after the Hevener brothers).

Henry! I love Henry and this book really made it clear why. I love how he looks after Kinsey and gives her space but also is just there when she needs him. And he lies for her! Even after she's decided not to go down that path based on his advice. I loved it.



4 stars. ( )
