Book Review: Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney

Dying to Read (Cate Kinkaid Files, #1)My Review:
I love a great mystery! I also love a book that will keep me guessing or suspecting until the very end. Ms. McCourtney provides both in Dying to Read.

I loved this novel. I love most mystery novels, but this one was different than some of the others I've read recently. In Dying to Read, we're brought a whodunit murder merely pages in, and its ready to ensnare your attention until the very end. I was dying to read more. ;-)

I really liked the humor that Ms. McCourtney brought to Cate's character, and while Mitch didn't always feel realistic he brought smiles to my face. Another character to mention is Octavia, the cat. She had such a personality! She also brought a smile or two and I think she was an excellent addiction. 

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery. :-)

Back of the Book:
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
