Dolled Up to Die by Lorena McCourtney (Review)




  • Paperback: 320 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (July 15, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800721596

  • Cate's not sure just what she expected . . . but she knows it certainly wasn't this.
    When Cate Kinkaid receives a frantic call about a triple homicide, she drives to the scene against her better judgment--aren't triple homicides more up the police department's alley?--only to find that the victims are not quite who she expects. Now she has a new rule to add to everything she's learned in her short stint as an assistant private investigator: always find out if the victims have human DNA. Because these three do not.

    But who would shoot this nice lady's dolls? What possible reason could the shooter have? And then there's the startling discovery of another victim, who definitely does have human DNA . . .

    With tension that is matched only by humor, Dolled Up to Die is the exciting second book in Lorena McCourtney's Cate Kinkaid Files. You won't find a place to stop and take a breath in this fast-paced story.


    My Review:

    This was a good Christian cozy mystery. It is the second in the Cate Kincaid files. The first was Dying to Read which I enjoyed also. I was a little scared when I read that the dolls were life like and the victims. It ended up not being freaky. There were also human victims so Cate has her hands full with this case. There are some characters from the first book like Cate's boyfriend who is still not too happy with her job and the risks she takes. Her Aunt and Uncle are also still there. Her Uncle owns the detective business and he is okay with her being an associate now. There was a lot of funny in it too. It is not a super serious book. Recommended.
