Dying to Read

Back Cover

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 a 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?


Cate Kinkaid is just trying to find her way in life.  She has a failed engagement behind her, and a string of not-so-successful jobs.  Cate doesn’t even know what she wants to do.  Helping her uncle with his private investigating company would just be a temporary employment until she found something more permanent elsewhere.

However, what Cate didn’t expect was how she was going to be drawn into a complex web of money, lies, and murder.  Common sense keeps telling her to step back from the foray and let more experienced individuals handle matters, but her curiosity gets the best of her.  She just can’t let a murder go unsolved and a criminal unpunished, even if a certain handsome painter is encouraging her to play it safe and leave everything for the police.

Dying to Read was a delightful novel full of quirky characters, witty dialogue, and intriguing storyline, reminiscent of a Murder, She Wrote mystery.  It was highly entertaining and I loved every second I was buried in the book.  This is the first book I have read by Lorena McCourtney, but it most definitely won’t be the last!
