A is for Alibi

By Sue Grafton
(A Kinsey Millhone novel)
Paperback 308 pages

This was a fairly enjoyable mystery! There were enough clues to keep me guessing and enough reasonable red herrings to keep me from solving the crime.

It begins because a woman was imprisoned for a murder she says she didn't commit. She has done her time, been released, and hired investigator Kinsey Millhone to solve the murder she was convicted of.

Owl Crate - Feb 2016: Sci-Fi Love

I got my first Owl Crate today and I'm so happy that I signed up for it.
What is it? A subscription box that sends YA Lit stuff every month.
How much is it? About $30 per box plus shipping.
When do I get it? They shipped out on the 20th and I got mine today, February 22.
Their website: www.owlcrate.com
What's in the box? I got a very pretty paperback copy of The Time Machine by Wells from Rick Paper Books, a coupon for 15% off at rockpaperbooks.com, a high quality pink shopping/tote bag with the names of couples from the Lunar Chronicles on it, a copy of Emily Henry's The Love the Split the World with a note from the author and a signed book plate, and a nifty wooden laser cut magnetic TARDIS pin.
Do I feel like I got my money's worth? Heck yes! And I'm so glad that I'm already signed up for next month too.

Did they pay me to say all this or send me free stuff? I wish! But no.
