  1. Thanks for your invaluable review info.

  2. Woo! These little reviews are awesome!

  3. I love mini-reviews! I have never read Robin Carr, which I've been told is a crime against humanity. :P

  4. Your mini reviews work really well. Do the Grafton books seem a bit dated?

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Though the stories all take place in the 80's, they really don't seem that dated. Kinsey does have to do a lot of legwork in order to find clues which takes time versus using today's technology.
