"Dying to Read," by Lorena McCourtney

"Dying to Read," by Lorena McCourtney

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 am not familiar with this author, but must say I did enjoy this book.  It was a simple read with plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested.  I had no idea "who did it" until the end. Will say it did have some confusing twists and turns and occasionally I got a bit confused.

Loved both Cate and Willow, though how both managed to survive was beyond me at times.  Again though the Willow character got a bit confusing at times.

Stars out of 5 : 4.5 easy read, you do have to pay attention, but a great book to sit in a deck chair in the garden or on the beach and wile away a day.
