Another winner from McCourtney: "Death Takes a Ride"

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!

my review....

The final book in the "Cate Kincaid" series provides a fun ride from beginning to end. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, and this final installment certainly doesn't disappoint. From the quirky, entertaining characters to the mysterious plot line, I was kept glued to the pages. Cate continues to be a fascinating character to follow along with on her exploits, as she isn't some polished expert sleuth, but rather seems to find herself in the middle of trouble without any effort on her part!  The relationship that has developed from the beginning with the ever helpful Mitch has provided many moments of hilarity, and I loved the scene in this book that takes place in the bar (you will see what I mean as you dive into this story yourself). The ending of the book is truly a unique one, and if you can read it without at least cracking a smile (if not outright laughing) then I would be shocked. McCourtney continues to provide a nice blend of wonderful characterization with well paced plots. I just know that readers who enjoy light-hearted mysteries that are clean and that celebrate love and faith, with a good mixture of humour thrown in, will greatly enjoy this book.

I do wish that there were more than 3 books in this series, because I would love to see what else lies in store for Cate! "Death Takes A Ride" will leave you with a smile on your face, and I strongly recommend not only this book but indeed the whole series. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
