Synopsis from B&N website

R is for Ricochet is another thrilling installment in Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series.

Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institute 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 Reba 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 24 hours when one of her old crowd comes circling around.

I love this series. I'm a couple books behind now that her new one is out, but I'll be caught up by the next one.

I know a lot of people like Grafton's books, but I've never read one. Here is my "R" book.

My mom (the mystery reader in the family) loves these. I've not read them but do generally hear good things about them.

I enjoyed this one a lot. And I just received notice yesterday from my local library branch that "U" is in transit, so I should have it in my hot little hands in a day or two! Looking forward to that one, for sure!!
If you want to take a peek, here's my R book.

LOL.... I told Laurel the same thing at her blog.... I have never read Grafton. I think all the letters have terrified me... do the mysteries follow one another? Is it the same characters?

I really should read one of these... so I start with A?

LOL so many questions...

Zia said...

Sheila - Yes they are about a female P.I. and there are a few other steady characters in the series. Each book is a new case/mystery for Kinsey. You definitely want to start with A.
