Overview

Cate's not sure just what she expected . . . but she knows it certainly wasn't this.

When Cate Kinkaid receives a frantic call about a triple homicide, she drives to the scene against her better judgment—aren't triple homicides more up the police department's alley?—only to find that the victims are not quite who she expects. Now she has a new rule to add to everything she's learned in her short stint as an assistant private investigator: always find out if the victims have human DNA. Because these three do not.

But who would shoot this nice lady's dolls? What possible reason could the shooter have? And then there's the startling discovery of another victim, who definitely does have human DNA . . .

With tension that is matched only by humor, Dolled Up to Die is the exciting second book in Lorena McCourtney's Cate Kinkaid Files. You won't find a place to stop and take a breath in this fast-paced story.

"A delight to read! Loaded with eccentric characters, a wig-happy cat, and details from dining to danger on every page, this book takes you right to the scene of the crime. And you won't want to leave until you've helped Cate figure out whodunit!"—Lenora Worth, New York Times bestselling author of Love Inspired

"With a clever plot that moves rapidly, this is a definite one-day read that suspense and mystery fans will absolutely love."—Suspense Magazine

    Dolled Up to Die is the second book in The Cate Kinkaid Files an

    Dolled Up to Die is the second book in The Cate Kinkaid Files and a lighthearted murder mystery.
    Cate is an Assistant P.I. and a bit of a bumbling one, but somehow she always comes out of the messes she gets herself into.
    I enjoyed the characters in this story and how well the book flowed. If you haven't read book one, no worries, Dolled up to Die stands alone.
    I really enjoyed this book and may even read it again at some point. I gave it five stars, but if allowed would have fit it between four and five stars. It's much better than very good, but seriously there are very few books that I consider exceptional--maybe one or two.
    I received this book for the purpose of reviewing. This is my honest opinion. I was not required to give a positive review.

    Really enjoyed

    I really enjoyed this 260 page. Christian, murder mystery. It is a very clean read, has some religion, no adult themes and the violence and murders are very non descriptive. The characters are likable. The editing perfect. There is a dab of humor and romance. By the complete conclusion, all threads were tied off except for one, why were the dolls shot? This is the second book of the series and this one was just as good as the first. The sub plot about the cat and her inheiritence is pretty silly, but I have heard of such things. I enjoed this cozy, chick lit mystery and will purchase the next book. I paid $2.99 for this book, plus tax. For ages 14 and up.

    Highly Recommend

    My new favorite series. Care Kincaid is a delightful Christian fun character. She gets herself in some serious situations and meets them with courage, humor, and prayer. Great light reading and seriously entertaining.

    This was a light mystery with a likable PI. The killer was a surprise, but no one tells you why the crime was really committed. Cute story, not awesome.

    Really held my interest. It is so nice to have an author that isn't afraid to mention going to church and praying.

    The plot had anough turns and twists in it to keep me guessing and at times, I was afraid the bad guy would win. Throughly enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to reading more of Cate's adventures.

    Enjoyable light mystery, with never a dull minute.

    The story and characters were interesting, and there was much incidental humor. The main character, Cate, is a
    klutz who ends up doing well, in spite of herself. Her many capers link her to all sorts of people, animals, and places.
    The ending is exciting and unexpected.

    For one star anonymous

    Why do you even read the plot spoiler if it bothers you so much. I'm as tired of your comments (which are not reviews) as you are of the plot spoilers reviews. At least i know when i see several paragraphs not to bother to read it. Then we have your supposed review. Wow what a waste of time. And now you have my comment. Thank you very much..... I have wasted my time letting you know you are no better than the spoilers!

    I dont read the plot spoilers fyi...but when they go on for miles and you have have to scroll thru these absurdly long posts you inevitably see something that ruins the book. So until bn does something to these rude plot spoilers, i will continue to complain. As you said, dont like it, dont read it.

    4 STARS I liked Dolled Up to Die. I did not read #1 of the Cate

    4 STARS

    I liked Dolled Up to Die. I did not read #1 of the Cate Kincaid files but I would like to go back and read it. Dolled Up to die stands alone but does talk a little about the first case.

    This is a Christian novel, but it mentions prayer and other things as part of the characters in the story. It fits in really good. It is also a clean read. I was kept guessing as who the murder really well until it was unveiled in the story line.

    I like Cate. Her character is determined to find out what is really happening. She cares about people she just met. Not out for all she can get from someone. Cate because she cared in first book is getting a new house built for her and her cat. In fact it is mainly because of the cat and she helped save it.

    Mitch is dating Cate. He is willing to help her in her P.I. cases with information and backup. He would rather her come work for him than risk her life.

    Cate gets a phone call about three murder victims the lady found out at house. Cate asks if she has called the police and that they did not take on murder cases. Cate finally agrees to meet the woman at her house. She is surprised that she has beaten the cops their until she realizes that the victims that were shot were dolls. Then they find the dead body with the cops their too.

    Dolled Up to Die is easy story to follow. I laughed in some scenes. Kept trying to figure who did what in other scenes. I would read Lorena McCourtney other books in the future.

    I won this book on Goodreads. All thoughts about the book are mine.
