Dolled Up To Die - A Review
When assistant Private Investigator Cate Kinkaid receives a frantic call about three shooting victims, she just can't keep from investigating. Even though the agency's not supposed to investigate murder and this sounds like something the police should handle. As she investigates, she discovers that the victims are actually life-sized dolls. But soon a human body is found. Cate's suspects are starting to mount. There's an ex-wife, the current wife, the mother-in-law, and those who have worked with the victim at his businesses. Will Cate leave it to the police or will she solve the crime?
Every once in a while, I like a good mystery. Not a romantic suspense story, but an actual mystery. This second book in the Cate Kinkaid Files fits that bill. Cate is still a fun character. She's impulsive and has a tendency to speak first and think later. These tendencies drive her boyfriend Mitch crazy. But she's also genuine. She genuinely cares about the people she investigates. Cate's quirkiness as well as the rest of the cast of characters made this a fun, relaxing read. It's great for those who just want to relax and read a mystery.
I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
