Dying to Read

Dying to Read

ISBN: 978-0800721589
August 2012/320 pages/$14.99

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?


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.


This is the first of Lorena McCourtney's books that I have read, and it looks to be the beginning of a delightful series. Quirky characters fill the pages of this novel, and many of them appear to be a prime suspect in the unexpected death that Cate Kinkaid, PI-wannabe, stumbles upon in her seemingly straightforward first assignment. If you enjoy a bit of suspense and "who-dun-it" but don't want to be scared to turn off the lights at night, this cozy mystery is one you should be Dying to Read!
