The featured book over on TCFL group on goodreads is W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton. I have read all of the Kinsey Millhone books over the years. Sue Grafton has created a very smart and wonderful childfree character in Kinsey. She is a bit of a loner, but she has an eclectic group of friends who form her family. I find her easy to relate to; perhaps because she is from a generation not far from my own. Kinsey’s character was born in the 1950s and her world view is shaped by some tragic events that occur in her formative years. Kinsey is orphaned at an early age and is estranged from her surviving family members. She has a toughness that serves her well in the life of a private investigator. Sue Grafton reveals bits and pieces of Kinsey’s past over the series of alphabet books from A to now W.
I am looking forward to finding out more about Kinsey in this newest installment. I enjoy spending time with her and am somewhat sad to see that the end of the alphabet is near. I am glad that Sue Grafton has developed a character that is smart and strong and content in her decisions. Kinsey Millhone is that strong female CF fictional character that many members on TCFL forums want to see in more novels.
