God, I had a feeling I shouldn't have borrowed this from the Kindle Library, but I went ahead and selected it anyway, hoping it would be better than I thought. It wasn't - should have gone with my gut.

Kate went to some school she saw on TV to become a private detective. While I admire her determination to start her own business, don't you think she should actually get some real life experience first, with an established agency, before striking out on her own? Well, she doesn't - she thinks she k
There is just a weird vibe to this one: an Irish name in a Greek family that talks and acts like New Jersey Italians.
It just tilted my mind and I couldn't finish it!

Whiney and stupid

Whiney and stupid

Katie doesn't know anything about doing the job she wants to follow she spends all of her time feeling sorry for herself and she lets her cousin take advantage of her.She needs to get a job and go to school to be a PI then throw her cousin out on his ear and tell her family to get lost and she also needs to quit living off her family I will not be reading any of the other books in this series

Kinsey Milhone she's not!

Both of their names may start with K but Kinsey Milhone she's not. Kate was a little too naive to be believable. I wanted to shake her at times - like her reaction when she learned that Mac had a gun concealed under his jacket at the club. Too stupid. I have the next two books yet to read and I hope Kate has gotten wiser by then.
This was an entertaining read. I liked the main character Kate. She was perky and whimsical, Her roommate/cousin Nick also a good well rounded character .These two were very well written. The rest of the family was annoying and overbearing, however some families are like that in real life as well. The mystery was unclear, I never really got a good feel for exactly what I was supposed to be interested in here. There were several plot lines going on and quiet a bit of silliness mixed in .It wasn’t ...more

#1 in series. Kate McCall has gotten her private eye license and is hoping to get some cases. She gets three that she solves, but no money. She is in it with her cousin, Nick, who has been in jail. They live together with power, etc turned off because bills haven't been paid. Her family is after her to become a temp, but she perseveres in her private eye job.

Kate finally gets some money from a cross-dressing man, who designs pocket books, who wants her to keep his secret from his wife. She agre

Kate McCall, Private Eye

Hilarious! Good story line; fast paced; believable situations & conversations..Excellent 1st book in the series. Can't wait to read the next one!
I enjoyed reading this book a lot. It is quite funny to read and I was laughing loudly various times, which I hardly ever do when reading books. For me the story brought back memories of the good old TV series Magnum, just don't expect the expensive sports car or the helicopter :)
This book was incredibly entertaining--I quickly read it and the next two books in the series. I hope that the author, Tina Lencioni, is working on a fourth installment!
A light and entertaining read!!! Perfect for these hot, summer days!!! I'm moving on to the next book in the series!!!
This is series worth watching. The characters are developing nicely. Easy read for late at night.
It had some funny moments. I am curious to find out what happens in her next adventure.
