"Dolled Up to Die," by Lorena McCourtney

"Dolled Up to Die," by Lorena McCourtney
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.


Must say I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, as it had a bit of a strange start with three dolls getting shot, and to be honest it did take a few chapters until I got hooked into the story line.  Once hooked though it was good, interesting with the whodunit and yes it had it's funny moments; thinking about the wig here.........

Will admit it was a bit far fetched at times but it was an easy read and one that didn't require too much concentration.

Stars out of 5 : 4 Not a bad read a book well worth buying or borrowing from your local library.  Be sure to read the other book in this series, "Dying to Read," I reviewed that book here.
