Cate Kinkaid is nearly a fully licensed private investigator. Adventure and mystery, however, do not wait for her certificate to come in the mail before they find her yet again in this third mystery novel in the Cate Kinkaid Files series. When Cate witnesses what seems to be a cut-and-dry case of robbery and self-defense, her detective skills tell her not is all that it appears. Further investigation proves her hunch is correct. As Cate struggles to discover the mysteries behind this attempted murder case, she must depend on her wits, smarts, and sidekick boyfriend to unravel the mysteries of this auto shop before someone murders her.
This fast-paced, light mystery novel is bursting with adventure from page one. Death Takes a Ride is written in simple language that allows the reader to speed through the pages and discover the surprising ending. The romance is not complex but adds a nice flair to the crime and murder that accompanies Cate’s life. Although the story is not very deep, the author does a wonderful job of keeping the reader guessing as to the truth behind each event in the plot. While this novel can stand alone, it serves as a nice addition to an exciting series. This book is recommended for lovers of contemporary mystery.
