Cate Kinkaid, Assistant Private Investigator.
Cate takes an assignment from her Uncle Joe, working for him as an investigator while waiting for another job offer. Her first assignment, according to her uncle, is a simple one. Check on a woman at her residence and write a report. Simple until she walks into a murder investigation when she finds the woman dead in her home.
Dying to Read is a great mystery with the main character, Cate, who reminded me of sluths Stephanie Plum and Kinsey Millhone. She's witty and smart, yet still finds herself more than "dipping her toe into the world of private investigation" as her Uncle Joe had said prior to hiring her. I love that her faith is interwoven into the story. I also love the relationship between her and Mitch as well as with her uncle.
This is a story that will have you guessing until the very end.
