Short Book Description:

It’s official. This case is above her pay grade–and Cate’s in over her head.

Cate Kinkaid arrives at H&B Vintage Auto Restorations to give a friend a ride. But, as usual, trouble finds Cate even there–this time in the form of one dead man, one wounded man, and what appears to be a pretty obvious case of self-defense.

Despite having been merely an unfortunate bystander, Cate finds herself sucked into the case. And the deeper she gets, the more she begins to suspect that the shooting in the H&B office may not have been as cut-and-dried as it appeared.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lorena McCourtney takes you on wild ride in this clever cozy mystery that will keep you guessing.

My Thoughts:

Having read the first book in the series, I couldn’t wait to read the rest of the books. I haven’t read book 2 yet though. I really enjoyed these books since it’s hard to find good Christian mystery books with clean romance these days.

I couldn’t help laughing at Cate throughout the book; she and her situations are just hilarious for the most part. Where ever she goes there is bound to be trouble following her there. What I like though is how ‘human’ she is. Often in books the main characters have absolutely no flaws to count for, they are just ‘perfect’.

The ending for me was the perfect one to the story; it was sweet, hilarious, and romantic. I won’t spoil it though for those of you haven’t read it yet. I hope there are more books coming in the series as I want to see Cate’s story finished.
