The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

Dying to Read Book Review

SUMMARY:  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 a hungry horde of gray-headed mystery readers and a dead body.  This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple.  Is Cate in over her head?

REVIEW:  Cate does not plan to be a private investigator for long.  She is sending resumes out in hopes of finding something permanent.  But, since she isn't qualified for much and her uncle is laid up in the hospital with a broken hip, Cate is trying to do the best she can to help him out. 
     This is a good book.  I like how Cate is determined to wrap up this case and find Willow.  She digs in and, once Willow is found, she tries to find out who murdered Willow's last employer.  Cate sticks by her new friend and tries to see the best in everyone, even when it looks like everyone is lying.  She even takes in Amelia's deaf cat after Amelia is murdered.  Cate's faith is important to her and plays an important part when she has some big decisions to make and when she is in a couple of very sticky situations.  I would recommend it to anyone wanting a change of pace in their reading material.
