New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney

About the book:


All she wanted was a paycheck. What she got was a murder.

Cate Kinkaid's life is . . . well, frankly it's floundering. Her social life, her career, her haircut--they're all a mess. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to work for her PI uncle, even though she has no experience and no instincts. After all, she is just dabbling in the world of private investigating until she can find a "real" job.


All she has to do for her first assignment is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? But when she reaches the dark Victorian house, she runs into an hungry horde of gray-haired mystery readers and a dead body. This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?

My thoughts: I don't have this book to review so I have no opinion. However, a number of years ago I found a book by this author called Whirlpool at an airport bookstore and I enjoyed it very much, so she knows how to write a good story. 

And now for the question:  What's your favorite kind of mystery? Do you like women sleuths, amateur sleuths, Sherlock Holmes type stories? I'll pick a winner next weekend using the Randomizer program.

I haven't read any books by Lorena McCourtney yet. I am a big mytery fan, I love thrillers, historical mysteries and cozies. Cozies are like the comfort food of mysteries.

Thank you for the chance to win this mystery!

I'd love to read this book.
I love mysteries where the heroine is just a regular gal, but I also love the ones where she is the detective, spy, cop, etc. I can't choose. That's a great question!

My favorite mysteries have to be logical with not too many coincidences. I like feeling like I can almost work it out. I guess that makes them the Sherlock Holmes type, though I read lots of other types too.
