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!

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.

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.

Easy reading

This was a cute ,easy read. Loved the characters! The author did a great job painting a vivid picked what they looked like physically. Loved the humor also. If you want something with a nice little ,relaxing evening,I would recommend this. Ready to read the next in series,see what kind of trouble Kate and cousin,Nick can get into!

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 :)
