Death Takes A Ride Book Review

 About the Book

It's official. This case is above her pay grade--and Cate's in over her head.
Cate Kinkaid arrives at H&B Vintage Auto Restorations to give a friend a ride. But, as usual, trouble finds Cate even there--this time in the form of one dead man, one wounded man, and what appears to be a pretty obvious case of self-defense.

Despite having been merely an unfortunate bystander, Cate finds herself sucked into the case. And the deeper she gets, the more she begins to suspect that the shooting in the H&B office may not have been as cut-and-dried as it appeared.

Lorena McCourtney is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of dozens of novels, including Invisible (which won a Daphne du Maurier Award from Romance Writers of America), Dying to Read, and Dolled Up to Die. She resides in Oregon. Learn more at www.lorenamccourtney.com.

My Review
This is the first book by Lorena McCourtney I have read. I think the books can be read separately but I did notice there was a little bit of Cate's personal story that I had missed because I hadn't read the first two books. That being said, it didn't take away from this story at all. I really love the writing in this book, it's serious things going on while humorous in so many ways. Cate is a fun character and I liked how she reacted to her every day life as a private investigator. This book kept me going, I wanted to know what happened. I had the murder solved right away, it wasn't quite as suspenseful as I had hoped, I kept wanting to tell Cate what actually happened. In any case this was a fun murder mystery that did keep me entertained. 

I'll be reading more by this author!
