    Sue Grafton is back with her quirky, quintessentially cool detective Kinsey Millhone. Two retired detectives bring a quandary to Kinsey: identify the victim in a cold case murder. When she takes on the quest, it turns into a high-risk hunt for a killer.

    Overall

    I've just started listening to Q is for Quarry and find the writing to be very enjoyable, as I have in all the previous Sue Grafton books that I have read featuring Kinsey Milhone. However, I don't care for the narrator, and find she detracts from my enjoyment of the book. I have read all the previous books, and like the way Sue Grafton develops plot and character. I expect this will not disappoint.

    Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating memory - the day her mother was killed. When she and her "stand-in-mother," a fierce-hearted black woman named Rosaleen, are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily enters a secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women.

    Overall

    Sue Monk Kidd brings you into the mind and heart of fourteen year old Lilly Owens, who's life changing and only memory of her mother happened when she was four years old.

    The narative is beautifully descriptive and emotionally fulfilling without sinking to the cliche' or melodramatic. The narator is perfectly attuned to the rhythm of the book which enhances its reading. I feel privileged to have listened to this book, and will listen to it again.
