Full Product Description
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?

Myriad suspects, plot twists, good dialogue, romance: mystery fans will find itPW Review
Fans of McCourtney?s Ivy Malone Mystery series will quickly get the clue that the Cate Kinkaid Files will be just as quirky, charming, and fun. Cate Kinkaid sees her job as an assistant private investigator with Belmont Investigations as a stop-gap until she gets a real job. She just needs to find out whether Willow Bishop lives at a certain address, then write a report. But one quick stop turns into one huge mystery when Cate stumbles onto a dead body and a host of suspects, including the elusive Willow. As Cate follows the clues and questions the suspects?the Whodunit book club, a greedy niece, a sleazy boyfriend?she becomes enamored of her PI job, not to mention the helpful Mitch Berenski. Things turns nasty with two attempts on her life in the same day, but Cate, despite her misgivings, triumphs. Myriad suspects, plot twists, good dialogue, romance: mystery fans will find it all in good form. (Aug.)
