Dying To Read: A Book Review

About The Book:

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 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?

My Review:

Dying To Read was a well written, intriguing book with lovable characters, and enough suspense and action to keep you reading late into the night (which I indeed did). With a little humor thrown in for good measure, this was a great read. There is a little bit of something for everyone who loves a romantic mystery to be sure.  I look forward to reading the rest of the series, as well as reading more from this author in the future.

A charming read that I highly recommend.
