Dying to Read (Cate Kinkaid Files #1) by Lorena McCourtney

Title: Dying to Read (Cate Kinkaid Files #1)
Author: Lorena McCourtney
Pages: 320
Year: 2012
Publisher: Revell Publishing

     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 a 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?

     This is a very enjoyable Christian mystery novel.

     It was a lot of fun to meet Cate and the other characters in this book. Lorena developed a wide variety of personalities along with their crazy quirks. I found Cate to be a very sweet, bumbling PI. I loved seeing what all trouble Cate managed to get into, much of it was of her own making. Just as enjoyable was finding out how she got out of each situation.

     I’m looking forward to reading the other novels about Cate, as well as, the other series Lorena McCourtney has written. I highly recommend this book. I give it 5 stars.
