Cate Kinkaid arrives at H&B Classic Auto Restorations 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. Owner Matt Halliday wants to hire her, but not for this case. Instead, Cate is charged with finding a man who owns a particular motorcycle Matt would like to buy. As her search progresses, she begins to suspect that the shooting in Matt's office may not have been as cut-and-dried as it appeared.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lorena McCourtney takes readers on another wild ride of mystery in this clever cozy mystery, part of her popular series The Cate Kinkaid Files.

My take on this book:
Cate Kinkaid has a knack for finding a mystery, and with Death Takes a Ride it's no different. She has no idea that she was going to be a witness to a robbery and shooting and the victim just might not make it. To complicate matters Cate is hired to investigate, but here's the deal, she isn't hired to investigate the shooting, instead she is looking for the owner of a particular motorcycle. Of course things rarely are what they seem, and Cate always finds herself up to her eyeballs in a who-dun-it!

I always enjoy a good mystery and this series has certainly provided that. My only complaint was that I figured out the ending early, which was sort of a bummer. That said, I always enjoy the humor that is woven into the Cate Kinkaid Files, and I think Cate's character continues to get stronger with each installment. I love whenever animals are woven into a story and with this one we have a cat and dog! Overall this book is a good clean mystery that isn't so hard to solve, but still is well worth reading for anyone who loves a cozy mystery. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
