Dolled Up to Die Book Review

The Cate Kinkaid Files
Book 2

SUMMARY:  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.

REVIEW:  The storyline is different from any I've read before but it has just the right amount of mystery to keep you guessing as to who the murderer is and why.  While it does move at a faster pace, you should not get lost or confused.  The characters are wonderfully developed and my favorite, of course, is Cate.  She tries hard to be a good Assistant Private Investigator but makes mistakes just like the rest of us.  She is comfortable in her own skin (and flaming carrot red hair) and is not afraid of taking chances.  Cate has a big heart and is willing to help anyone in need.  This is a great book and a wonderful read.
