Start reading Dying to Read (The Cate Kinkaid Files Book A Novel on your Kindle in under a minute. This book was advertised as a Christian Fiction due to the fact that Cate attends church and truly believes in God. Ok. I only worry that some persons might not bother reading it thinking that the book will be one scripture after another. This book was a good, solid, and fun murder mystery novel. I did enjoy the character and did not find it preachy. 83 people found this helpful.

Young, intrepid Cate Kincaid dips her toes into the world of private investigating only to be met with a dead body and no answers, in the first title of a fast-paced and witty romantic mystery series by the award-winning author of Invisible. (religious fiction).

I feel this book has true promise. For a debut book, I found the character very likable. A young girl, Cate Kincaid, finds herself somewhat lost in life. Her romance life is stalled, her work life is an interesting tale of non-success, and so she has moved in with her Uncle Joe and wife to become an Assistant Private Investigator. Training at this point is zero as Uncle Joe is in the hospital with an unexpected new hip. So...she is assigned simple work.

Finding the woman for her Great-grandfather isn't as simple as Cate thought it would be. Especially when the employer of the woman is found, by Cate, at the foot of her rickety back stairs...dead. Meeting an impossible gaggle of women, Cate feels that this was more than an accident.

So, the book moves forward. Now, Cate finds herself meeting a handsome handyman, a new cat that is deaf, new persons right out of a cozy novel and more. I do wish there had been more tie in with the book club that the title refers to, however, that may be in the future.

This book was advertised as a Christian Fiction due to the fact that Cate attends church and truly believes in God. Ok. I only worry that some persons might not bother reading it thinking that the book will be one scripture after another. This book was a good, solid, and fun murder mystery novel. I did enjoy the character and did not find it preachy. I hope to read more of Ms. McCourtney's books.

I didn't think the title of this book actually had much to do with the storyline. Several characters were introduced and had small roles seemingly just thrown in and not having much to do with the story afterwards. I did enjoy the basic premise of the book and I like the main character but I didn't feel that the character of Cate was developed enough to really get to know her. There were just too many details that didn't quite make sense to me. I have read several of Lorena McCourtney's other books which I have enjoyed much more, namely the Ivy series. I'm not sure I will read the other books in this particular series.

I have read this author's 1st, 2nd & 3rd books on her older character Ivy Malone sure the first book setting up the premise started a bit slow but it wasn't very long when things really got going! The plots are always well researched & well written the characters fully fleshed out & the Christianity kept real within the plot. Unlike many Christian writers this author doesn't beat you over the head with Ivy's being Christian. It's beautifully written into Ivy's character & unlike many Christians I've known Ivy is refreshingly open minded, at least to not loudly discounting what she doesn't believe in, her style is more the wear them down with comments that are friendly & thoughts of showing those not as Christian as she what the other side has to offer.

This series character Cate is much younger then Ivy, who is 65 or older, she is about 20. And like I was at this age has conclusions about people she doesn't know well. The synopsis of this book sounded interesting her helping out her Uncle as a P. I. but her constant refrain of not going to be a P. I. long gets old. Or her constant noticing she has begun to think like a P. I.

Sadly it's just not worth to me wading through the book to see if it ever picks up. I'm sure other readers might really enjoy this book but right now where I am at my life stage I share many common traits with Ivy. I'm a recent widow which Ivy isn't but I'm 63 & like Ivy my life has changed like her old neighborhood had. Old friends are also dying on me as well & though my son & my wonderful daughter in law live with me to help me get my house ready for sale I think this is one reason why I enjoy the older Character better. And can understand her feeling alone without those who have knowledge of how life was in the past.

I have to agree with a reviewer who said she wished that the author had used more of the writing club in the plot that might have made it more enjoyable for me.

I love mysteries and read them almost exclusively. "Cozy" mysteries are not my favorite sub-genre but I do enjoy them when they're fast-paced, funny and well written. This book, in my opinion, is none of those things.

The official book description doesn't mention that this is a Christian novel. (Some of the posted reviews DO point that out but I missed them before acquiring the book.) I have no problem with uplifting, inspirational stories that skip unnecessary profanity, extreme violence and graphic sex. However, when God, faith and religion are used as nothing more than a vehicle to allow the main character to waft through life without making decisions while she's waiting for God to tell her (directly) what to do, I find that unappealing and unnecessary. The God, faith and religious references were not excessive or overly preachy but nor were they affirming, inspiring or comforting. That being the case, why bother to incorporate a Christian theme at all? To me, it seemed like the author did so soley to ensure the reader knows that the protagonist, Cate, is a good Christian girl.

The underlying idea for the story is a good one. At times the writing is witty and the pace fairly brisk. The problem is that it doesn't stay that way throughout. There are times when speculation about minor characters, along with Cate's ruminations about her own life challenges, become so convoluted and irritating that is was hard not to skip over them. I think some good editing would have made a huge difference.

For me, Cate alternated between being someone I'd consider spunky, brave and likable to someone I wanted to (metaphorically) shake until her teeth rattled. Most of the secondary characters were shallow and poorly developed. I'll admit that I did not immediately figure out "whodunit" but by the time it was revealed, I didn't really care - the whole story ended up seeming trite and formulaic. But that's the great thing about reading - to each his or her own! There was some clever dialogue and some good observations buried amongst the whining and indecision and for a fast, easy, light read, you could do worse.
