Dolled Up to Die by Lorena McCourtney

Dolled Up to Die (The Cate Kincaid Files, #2)Book Description:
When Cate Kinkaid receives a frantic call about a triple homicide, she drives to the scene against her better judgement-aren’t triple homicides more up the police department’s alley?-only to find that the victims are not quite who she expects. Now she has a new rule to add to those she’s learned in her short stint as an assistant private investigator: always find out if the victims actually have human DNA. Because these three do not.
But who would shoot this nice lady’s dolls? What possible reason could the shooter have? And then there’s the startling discovery of another victim, who definitely does have human DNA . . .
With tension that is matched only by humor, Dolled Up to Die is the exciting second book in Lorena McCourtney’s The Cate Kinkaid Files. Mystery fans won’t find a place to stop and take a breath in this fast-paced and intriguing tale.

My Thoughts:
I liked this one!  Cate responds to a call about a murder, well actually three murders.  She is an assistant PI and really the police should be called for murder right?  Well except the victims aren't exactly human.  They are life sized dolls so Cate doesn't understand why someone would 'kill' them.  Then a victim is found that IS human and Cate should let the police investigate....right?
I really liked Cate.  She is determined to figure out the case when it was just dolls but then when the human victim is found, she knows the police should be investigating alone.  There are plenty of suspects but narrowing the list down is harder than adding suspects to it!  The author does a great job with balance in the story and the whole thing just flows and you can't put it down!
I rate this one a 4/5.  It is a great follow up to the Dying to Read (Book #1)
