Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney (Review)

  • Paperback: 320 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (August 1, 2012)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800721589

  • All she wanted was a paycheck. What she got was a murder.
    Cate Kinkaid's life is . . . well, frankly it's floundering. Her social life, her career, her haircut--they're all a mess. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to work for her PI uncle, even though she has no experience and no instincts. After all, she is just dabbling in the world of private investigating until she can find a "real" job.

    All she has to do for her first assignment is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? But when she reaches the dark Victorian house, she runs into an hungry horde of gray-haired mystery readers and a dead body. This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?

    My Review:
    I enjoyed reading this Christian cozy mystery. It is the first in the Cate Kincaid series. It was well written with lively characters. There is some humor in the story too which really adds to it. I figured out some of the mystery but not all and it did not detract from the book for me. A cute male sidekick makes an appearance too. :) Recommended.

    Lorena McCourtney is the award-winning author of dozens of novels, including Invisible (which won the Daphne du Maurier Award from Romance Writers of America), In Plain Sight, On the Run, and Stranded. She resides in Oregon.

    Available now wherever Baker/Revell books are sold.

    Thank you Donna at Revell for my review copy.
