Book Review: Death Takes a Ride

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.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lorena McCourtney takes you on wild ride in this clever cozy mystery that will keep you guessing.
While I love a good mystery, this one didn't really grab me. I found Cate to be a rather inept private investigator that really was in over her head. I'm not sure she would have solved the case if it weren't for a lot of help. That being said, I did enjoy the characters and chuckled over the interactions between her cat and the victim's dog. I didn't tell my cats just how great a house Cate's cat lived in because let's be honest, I was envious enough for all of us. Also, while I found Cate to really need some further training, I did really enjoy the story barring that part...so I'm going to say this is a pretty good book but probably not one that I'll read over and over again.
