Book Review: Dolled Up to Die by Lorena McCourtney


Dolled Up to Die

series:       The Cate Kinkaid Files


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.

Reader Review . . .

When Assistant Private Investigator Cate Kincaid took the call, she had no idea what she was getting into.  The caller reported three murders, but the police were in no hurry to investigate.  When Cate arrives at the scene, she sees that she should have asked if the victims were human.  But when a fourth body turns up, the investigation gets interesting.

The second installment in The Cate Kinkaid Files, this novel continues the adventures of Cate and her boyfriend Mitch.  Cate continues to work for her uncle Joe, and once again finds herself in over her head.  Another  cozy mystery from Ms. McCourtney who proves that murder mysteries can be fun, light reading.  I have enjoyed the first two novels in this series and look forward to more.
