Dolled Up to Die

Dolled Up to Die
(The Cate Kinkaid Files)
Lorena McCourtney
ISBN: 978-0800721596
July 2013/320 pages/$14.99

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.

"A delight to read! Loaded with eccentric characters, a wig-happy cat, and details from dining to danger on every page, this book takes you right to the scene of the crime. And you won't want to leave until you've helped Cate figure out whodunit!"--Lenora Worth, New York Times bestselling author of Love Inspired


Lorena McCourtney is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of dozens of novels, including Dying to Read, Invisible (which won a Daphne du Maurier Award from Romance Writers of America), In Plain Sight, On the Run, and Stranded. She resides in Oregon.

I thought I had requested to be part of this blog tour but the book never arrived, so there must have been a misunderstanding. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Dying to Read (reviewed here) and was looking forward to seeing what Cate Kinkaid is up to this time as she stumbles her way through her new job as an assistant private investigator. Reading through the preview on Amazon, I can tell that Dolled Up to Die is another fun mystery with quirky characters and a unique crime.
