After reading Death Takes a Ride, I found that all three novels in this series are certifiably enjoyable while balancing action, adventure along with romance.  Cate Kincaid is an unemployed young lady who begins as an assistant private investigator working with her uncle, starting in book #1, Death Takes a Ride.  Cate’s adventures continue in the sequel titled, Dolled up to Die.  Each novel has continuing characters so make sure to start with book one.  Cate goes through some suspense-filled mystery she just happens to find herself involved in and then she is often calling her friend Mitch to come to her rescue.
Mitch is a single guy who, after finding himself unemployed, began a software company with his friend Lance.  Now the company is being pursued by a large corporation to be purchased.  If sold, Mitch has his future filled with possibilities that may or may not include Cate.  In what may or may not be the last installment, readers will embark on following leads that include homicide, deception, and embezzlement, with a surprise ending.
There are twists and turns in the plot that I found very enjoyable along with busting out laughing at some of the quirky situations and anecdotes.  I cannot tell if the author is planning any more in this series, a spinoff from the series or what, but whatever the author comes up with, I will be reading!  It is fun to just sit back, read a fun and exciting story without worrying about high tension possibly robbing me of sleep!  There is just something about the mysteries that captivates the imagination along with the easy way it reads that makes for a great summer book!
I hope you take time to read all three books in order to fully appreciate the tale, plots and characters within!  Enjoy the adventure beginning with Death Takes a Ride, and then Dolled up to Die, ending with Death Takes a Ride.
My rating is 5 stars!
