Book Review: Dying to Read



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?

I was hooked from the first page.  The gray-haired ladies are quite the characters...reminded me of a gray-haired lady I myself know!

You don't usually think of finding humor along with murder, but in Dying to Read, you're going to find just that!  As you turn the pages you won't know if you're going to find yourself laughing, or biting your nails as you follow along in Cate's footsteps as she investigates the murder.

Is this investigative 'stuff' going to turn into a 'real' job?'ll enjoy Cate as she grows as a person as well as an investigator....a great cozy mystery!  I became a Loren McCourtney fan by the end of the first chapter.
