Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney is a fun "cozy mystery" with elements of humor and romance. I loved the characters. Cate Kinkaid, the heroine, is a private investigator. Sounds impressive and fictitious, right? Well, she's a private investigator about like I would be! She's actually just helping her uncle (who is in the hospital) track down a "long lost relative" of one his clients. Nothing espionage-ish or glamorous about that. Until she, and the oh-so-colorful members of a ladies book club, stumble across the body of the book club's hostess. Even then it seems like a pretty open-and-shut case-- cause of death: accident. But, of course, things are not always what they seem.
