Another great mystery from McCourtney!
Cate Kincaid is back! She made a big impression in Dying to Read and I couldn't wait to see what adventures she'd tackle in Dolled Up to Die. I love her spunk, her humor, and above all else her drive to find the answers. Also returning is Mitch, Cate's occasionally overprotective boyfriend, and Octavia, Cate's newly adopted deaf cat, who sometimes has better intuition than Cate.
I love it when I get the opportunity to review a mystery novel. In this whodunit, I was constantly guessing and never quite sure if I was right. The pacing was dead on, pun intended, and the stakes rose just when you thought they couldn't. Combine McCourtney's great sense of humor with her equally great mystery devices and you get a pleasure-filled afternoon with Cate.
If you enjoy whodunit mysteries, Dolled Up to Die is right up your alley. Aside from some minor, brief, adult humor the story is very clean and appropriate for 15+. I recommend this to anyone in need of a laugh while they try to solve the murder. :-)

I received this book from Revell in return for an honest review of my opinions, which I have done. Thanks!
When Cate Kinkaid
receives a frantic call about a triple homicide, she drives to the scene
against her better judgement-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 those she’s learned in her
short stint as an assistant private investigator: always find out if the
victims actually have human DNA. Because these three do not.
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 . . .
