Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to R is for Ricochet the 18th book in the Kinsey Millhone mystery series written in 2004 by Sue Grafton Another great book in this series I enjoyed the different type of case Kinsey took on A wealthy man wants to ensure his daughter is on her best behavior while she gets out on parole after a few years Her wild side seems to have uieted down while in jail and Kinsey needs the money So she takes the case mistake #1 Then she realizes her case is not a calm woman looking to start new after getting sprung from the slammer as she's just being dragged back into the crazy again That's mistake #2 You'll have to read the book to know mistakes 3 and 4 there are two of them but I'm comfortable saying the plot and the characters in this one feel as though Grafton kicked it up a notch I really like this series and am hoping to pic back up at V as soon as I finish a few reviews You should give this one a chance There are only 26 books to read About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by

The California Institution for Women Now at thirty two she is about to be paroled having served twenty two months of a four year sentence Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight stays at home and away from the drugs the booze the gamblers It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey babysit Re. I heard about this series on Central Standard NPR and thought I'd give it a go The good news first Grafton choose to set the entire series in the 1980's It takes sleuthing to a level I haven't seen since Magnum PI Detective Milhorne often stops by the office to check her message machine she uses phone books and pay phones and she uses resources at the library to find facts Fun fun Now the bad news Mystery authors walk a fine line with their readers Make the mystery too difficult to piece together and we complain that not enough was left to the reader Make the mystery too obvious and we not only feel insulted but we also lose faith in our crime solving protagonist Sadly the latter is the case with this novel and i found myself disappointed in Detective Milhorne Three times she had to be clued into an important connection in the case which I'm sure was written for the reader but makes our detective look stupid Further I seldom saw her do any type of sleuthing In fact it was another character that did most of the detective work I think detective Milhorne should have a chat with author Sue Grafton about making her look bad

R is for RicochetBa until she settles in make sure she follows all the rules of her parole Maybe all of a week's work Nothing untoward the woman seems remorseful and friendly And the money is good But life is never that simple and Reba is out of prison less than twenty four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling roun. Should have been titled S is for Slow or T is for Tedious Published in 2004 by Random House AudioRead by Judy KayeDuration 11 hours 33 minutesOccasionally I'm simply a minor character in someone else's play Kinsey MillhoneR is for Ricochet really is an appropriate title for this one since like a misfired bullet that bounces around and hits uninvolved bystanders Kinsey gets caught up in a client's mess and nearly gets herself killedSet in July of 1987 this is one really slow developing book Lots of detailed descriptions of Kinsey's clothing her client's clothing the bad guy's clothing Kinsey's thought processes about her clothing choices the clothing of the IRS agent in the story the clothing of a witchy rich lady the clothing of Kinsey's love interest the clothing a stripper wears to work shopping malls the clothing they look at in the shopping mall hotel hallways hotel lobbies streets and two separate descriptions of the same office hallway all make it one boring audiobook experienceNow don't get me wrong the reader Judy Kaye does a tremendous job of giving each individual character a distinct voice and she captures Kinsey's wisecracking side perfectly but this story cannot be saved by a great presentation It is too slow and it should have been about one half as long I listen to audiobooks as a diversion as I drive Many times I had to turn this diversion off so I would not fall asleep and careen off the road It is not saved by the fact that the book does pick up the pace at the end all that did was make me wonder why we had to lollygag through the first 80% of the bookhttpdwdsreviewsblogspotcom2012
