    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.

    My thoughts: I found Dying to Read to be an entertaining, light cozy mystery read. It is full of absurd situations and conversations, but that makes it all the more charming and entertaining. It is replete with little old ladies who gossip behind each others backs but who are in a mystery reading group. But read is not all they do together. It seems there is a bit of risk taking involving money and/or scams taking place.

    Out-of-work Cate is simply suppose to locate a "missing" person for her temporarily disabled uncle who is a private investigator. Cate stumbles head over heels into a most convoluted mystery situation involving murder, bribery, lying, cheating, and down-right danger.

    During her investigations into the missing person, who just happens to look like a twin sister to Cate, she meets her knight in shining armour who is strong, handsome, protective, and caring. Now this sounds interesting, but there is an old fiance who wants to creep in, too. But this is a mystery and not a real romance, yet it never hurts to have a bit of sweet newly blooming romance on the fringes.

    A fun read that will help you while away some time when you just want a little bit of relaxing.

    Move Over Janet Evanovich!

    Move over, Janet Evanovich! An unemployed Cate Kincade's life is a mess: her social life, career, and haircut. Her PI uncle hires her to do her first assignment as an inexperienced private investigator. All she has to do is locate someone. But, of course, after she finds the person she can't walk away. She goes from one predicament to a more complicated predicament and on and on. Some kooky characters, a murder mystery, and a budding romance move this cozy mystery along. The dialogue is witty and the action is snappy, making this a page-turner. The laugh-out-loud moments are delightful. Cate Kincade will be around for a long time. Can't wait for her next adventure.

    Female Sleuth

    Mystery lovers have a new, female sleuth: Cate Kincaid. In addition to her bright mind and her ability to ferret out details, she sometimes trips over clues, but she manages to solve the crimes.

    At the beginning of this light-hearted cozy mystery, Cate is grabbing the chance to work in a temporary position of Assistant Private Investigator; after all, it's the only paid job she can find. As she stumbles along, her curiosity takes her places few would venture.

    The story is rich in quirky characters. There's the Whodunit book club, a group of middle-aged mystery readers; Willow, a tree hugger, who wins people over with her cooking; Octavia, a blue-eyed, fluffy, white cat who seems to direct Cate; and a hint of romance supplied by a couple of eager young males.

    I can't wait for the next Cate Kincaid Files to be published! Thank you to Donna Hausler for my copy.
