"C" IS FOR COZY
on 20 October 2002
I usually don't like to use the word "cozy" in describing a mystery because it makes me think I won't like it but I'd have to say that Grafton's alphabet series can only be described as such. There isn't much violence yet most of the stories do involve a murder. She has the knack for writing plausible yarns that keep the reader guessing until the very end. "C" Is For Corpse is no exception and was a very enjoyable read in my opinion
These are all quick reads and, while they can stand alone, it's more fun starting with "A" and following Kinsey's caseload from month to month. Grafton has written these books in such a way that when you finish one and start the next, only a matter of weeks have passed in Kinsey's life. I find the best time to read them is when you're craving something light and not too taxing on the brain yet written well enough to maintain your interest level. I have "D" Is For Deadbeat lined up next but I'll have to read a few "heavier" books first so that I can fully appreciate the relaxation I experience when reading the next letter in this alphabet series.
