My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cate is helping her Uncle Joe out as a Private Investigator while she is looking for a job. She thought she wanted to be a teacher, but found out that she is no good at teaching kids, so a series of dead-end, short term jobs have lead her to Uncle Joe. This is one job that she actually doesn't want to mess up.

What starts out as a routine locate job, turns upside down when she finds a dead body instead, and a whole book club full of people who wanted the lady dead! Cate just can't seem to let this one go, even though her job was to find an employee of the lady, the lady's death has overtaken her and she just can't seem to stop herself from wanting to find the answers.

A new cozy mystery series about a semi-young, almost 30, single gal who has no idea where she is going in life, when an offer to help her Uncle Joe turns into so much more. Maybe being a Private Investigator was her calling all along.

Aside from the murder mystery, you have an extremely slow moving possible relationship between Cate and either her ex-fiance or the new, knight in shining armour guy. You also have a clean cut gal who prays when in trouble and attends church every Sunday.

Very clean story - no bad language or sexual scenes. Does include references to religion and a belief and faith in a God. I found it to be an interesting story, although I know some readers will not enjoy the faith, others will. It is a matter of personal preference, and so I mention that it is included so you know going into the story.

Author +Lorena McCourtney has four cozy mystery series available to read.  The Cate Kincaid Files, The Ivy Malone Mysteries, The Julesburg Mysteries, and the Andi McConnell Mystery.
