Death Takes a Ride, The Cate Kincaid Files, by New York Times bestselling author Lorena McCourtney

It's official. This case is above her pay grade. Cate's in over her head.

Date Kinkaid arrives at H&B Vintage Auto Restoration 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 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 a wild ride in this clever cozy mystery that will keep you guessing.


Excerpt from Death Takes a Ride:

She spotted shadowy movement inside the front door, but Aunt Rebecca had said to go to a side door. Cate nosed the Honda around the far corner of the warehouse and stopped by a door with an Employees Only sign illuminated by a bare bulb overhead. She hesitated before turning off the engine.

Maybe that sign should read Muggings-R-Us. She couldn't even see the front parking lot from around here. Bare metal showed through the old paint on this hidden side of the building. Weeds grew in a crack between the metal and the asphalt, and a pile of discarded tires out back looked as if if might harbor anything from murderous thugs to mutant rats. A bicycle leaned against the tires. Was that something moving beside it?

Nah. Cool it, Cate. You're not working a PI case tonight. Nothing's moving. Just a trick of shadows in the moonlight.
