    Are you Dying To Read? Gotta love that book title, eh? :)

    I found this book to be entertaining. Lorena definitely kept me guessing and eager to keep reading in order to solve the mystery. I never did solve the mystery and had an ah-ha moment when it was finally revealed.

    Though Cate's character didn't seem to think very highly of herself. I found her to be strong, not easily swayed and possessed a very good work ethic.

    I liked that this book only had a hint of romance. It was mostly about the mystery and how Cate went about trying to solve it. I can't say there was anything I didn't like about it, only that it ended too soon and I want the second book....now!

    This was the first book I have read by Lorena McCourtney and Dying to Read made me want to read her other books. It was quite refreshing.

    Cate Kinkaid is ...ummm....going through a career crisis. She always intended to be a teacher, but after graduating from college with a degree in education, she discovered that she just isn't a good teacher. She has had some interesting jobs since then, but nothing permanent. While waiting for something to turn up, she has accepted an offer from her uncle to work in his PI firm. Nothing too exciting; just an address confirmation. But when the address confirmation turns up a dead body and a long list of suspects, Cate finds her temp position to be more exciting than she ever imagined.

    Yay! This "cozy little mystery" turned out to be good! Certain phrases often worry me, and that's one of them. And to perfectly honest, I often worry about Christian fiction. Anyone who has read my reviews in the past already knows that, but I just have to say it; in the past, authors have had a hard time combining Christian values with either romance, murder, or dishonesty. They usually went heavy handed with the values and soft-soaped the "bad stuff". NEWS FLASH: It's a real world and bad stuff happens. So, when an author comes along like Ms. McCourtney and manages to realistically portray Christians in a real world, I'm happy. I know it's still fiction, and it's still a "cozy" mystery, but it's not too cozy. And that's the way I like my mysteries.

    I love Lorena McCourtney's books and was so excited that she has this new series out. This is such a fun book. It's interesting with its plot twists and also funny. I don't know how she comes up with such funny and unexpected turns. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I want to read more books about Cate Kinkaid. I've always loved mysteries, and have to admit to a secret desire to become a PI. Well, I guess that's not a secret anymore.

    Cate seems to have spent a lot of time bungling through life. I guess that's why it was no surprise to see her bungle through a murder investigation.

    She also managed to bungle through one love relationship, and got off to a rough start with another one.

    I certainly hope Ms. McCourtney plans on writing a lot of these Cate mysteries. I'm also interested in learning more about Mitch. And then there's Willow. I hope she pops up every now and then.

    Dying to Read is an action packed book. Cate Kincaid is now living with her Aunt Rachael an Uncle Joe, after trying a number of job, she is now trying a hand at being a PI. Uncle Joe trusts her, and gives her a case to find a missing niece of a man from TX.

    She ends up at the last place Willow lived and ends up at a murder scene. This is just the beginning of the adventure we are about to embark on. Once started you have to read to the end to find out the ins and outs of what is going on. Throw in a bit of romance...may two, new friends and foes. There is a lot of action going on...and your going for a great ride.

    Enjoy this great mystery, and you will have trouble figuring it all out ahead of time. I recommend this book to cozy up with.

    I received this book from the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
