I have a Kindle app on my iPad and iPhone, and I receive email from Book Bub and Amazon about free or special priced books. Thank goodness for iCloud to store all these goodies.
I’ve been reading Dying To Read by Lorena McCourtney for over a month now. I’m on page 61 of 313 pages, 19% complete. It’s not just Lorena McCourtney’s skill as a story teller that’s held me back, to be fair it’s Christmas and a very busy time of the year.
It wouldn’t be right to rate an unfinished book. We can look at Amazon reviewers, 4.2 stars out of 5, and Goodreads, 3.51 stars out of 5. I think I agree with Goodreads rating. If this had been an intense mystery with scrupulously obscured clues, if Cate found danger at every turn I would finish in 2 days.
Synopsis – Cate Kinkaid is just dipping her toe into the world of private investigating until one of the many resumes she has floating around lands her a real job. All she has to do is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? When the big and brooding house happens to contain a dead body, this routine PI job turns out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?
First sentence – Cate glanced at the identification card her Uncle Joe had printed out just before she left his office.
I’m enjoying the book well enough to finish, and I’ll let you know more next week. I’m anxious to finish it because I have some interesting titles begging to go to the top of the stack.
