S is for stunning...

As I stood looking out over the beautiful city of Santa Barbara from the tower in the courthouse building, I had to wonder why I ever stopped reading Sue Grafton novels.  In case you aren’t familiar, Sue Grafton is the author of the alphabet series of murder mysteries set in Santa Teresa, the fictional Santa Barbara.  I supposed I drifted away from them because there are so many books and so little time, but now having had the great opportunity to spend time in that beautiful courthouse in that beautiful city, I think I will try to figure out which letter I left off with and go back and catch up with the series.  
Now was I on N or O…or maybe P??
