D is for Deadbeat by Sue Grafton (thoughts)
Kinsey Millhone is back and better than ever in D is for Deadbeat. She comes across a suspiciously easy case: deliver a cashier's check to a young teenage boy. Against her better judgement, Kinsey agrees to take on the case. But she soon finds that her new case isn't as it seems as the man who hired her winds up dead. And everyone that knows him has reasons for wanting him dead. Kinsey can't seem to let the case go, even if it means that danger lurks around every corner.
D is for Deadbeat is another amazing read in Grafton's alphabet mystery series! Easily one of the best mystery series that I've read in a long time. I have a hard time putting these books down! I love Kinsey as a main character, love how realistic she comes across, and how unapologetic she is when it comes to her personality. She is who she is and doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks. This book was another read that kept me on my seat as I read it...I just kept thinking one more chapter until I had over half of the book read :) I thought that the mystery was both original and unconventional. Especially the ending and who the killer was. I didn't see that one coming from a mile long! But what I enjoy most about these books is the entire process and watching Kinsey figure out who the killer/bad guy is. I usually never see the ending coming and of course this book didn't disappoint. It was just a great read for me!
All in all, another exceptional read from this author! I love Kinsey and these books....I just can't get enough! They are fast-paced, easy reads that keep me coming back for more. Highly recommended to mystery lovers! And if you haven't begun this series yet, what are you waiting for????
Bottom Line: Hand's down a must read series, and this book is another great addition to it!
Disclosure: I bought my copy of this book from the used book store. (Finally, I read something off of my own shelves!)
Now my question for you guys: what are your go-to mystery series that you can't recommend enough?? After reading/loving every single book that I've read by Grafton so far, I'm looking for more mystery series to read (and hopefully love) as well. Recommendations needed please and thank you :)

Your review has me asking myself what am I waiting for? I got about halfway through the alphabet...I need to get back into these!ReplyDelete
Staci, you really should!! I just recently picked up E is for Evidence from the used bookstore. I'm such a huge fan of this series now!Delete
Sam, great review! Your enthusiasm for this book makes me want to read it, and others in this series.ReplyDelete
Suko, if you do read this series start with the first one! I love Kinsey as a main character and can't wait to read more from this series :)Delete
Oh man ... I started this series so long ago that D seems like an ancient text!! I love Kinsey, and Grafton has maintained the quality through the entire series, which is so very rare. I'm with her all the way to Z!ReplyDelete
Jenners, that is awesome to hear because I'm looking forward to reading each and every one of these books. I have a feeling that I'll be with her to Z as well!Delete
I so love this series! I really need to dive back in. I am glad you enjoyed this one, Samantha!ReplyDelete
I love reading mysteries. Sara Paratesky is a good one to try, if you haven't already.
Wendy, I'm adding Paratesky to my Goodreads TBR list right now! I love finding new mystery authors to try (and especially if they have big back lists of books). LOL!Delete
