“Lorena McCourtney’s lively cozy mysteries hit all the right notes for me, and her newest doesn’t miss a chord. A quirky, likable heroine, a handsome guy, and oh, a murder. Don’t miss Cate Kinkaid’s first case as a PI. It’s a killer.”–Lyn Cote, author of La Belle Christiane
All she wanted was a paycheck. What she got was a murder.
Cate Kinkaid’s life is . . . well, frankly it’s floundering. Her social life, her career, her haircut–they’re all a mess. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to work for her PI uncle, even though she has no experience and no instincts. After all, she is just dabbling in the world of private investigating until she can find a “real” job.
All she has to do for her first assignment is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? But when she reaches the dark Victorian house, she runs into an hungry horde of gray-haired mystery readers and a dead body. This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?
