Dying to Read - Reviewed
Cate Kinkaid is just dipping her toe into the world of private investigating until one of the many resumes she has floating around lands her a real job. All she has to do is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? When the big and brooding house happens to contain a dead body, this routine PI job turns out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?
Readers will be hooked from the very first chapter of this fast-paced and witty romantic mystery from bestselling and award-winning author Lorena McCourtney.
Cate is thirty and hasn't been able to hold a job, so when her Uncle Joe takes pity on her and offers her a job with his P.I. firm she takes it. All she is suppose to do is go to this address and find out if this young girl, Willow lives there. When she gets there a group of older ladies "The Whodunit" book club are standing out front waiting on Amelia their hostess to open up and let them in, and they aren't talking very nice about her as Cate comes walking up. When the door finally gets opened and they find Willow has left in haste, and their hostess has fallen down a flight of stairs and is dead, Cate doesn't just leave things there.
Cate resembles the missing Willow, she inherits the dead woman's cat Octavia, the knight-in-shining armor handy man that is all to ready and willing to help Cate.
With quirky characters, and Cate's dry humor you will be laughing and turning the pages quicker than you can read!
I highly recommend this book!
