About the Book

(from Goodreads)

Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, has returned to her family law practice after a hiatus due to the death of her mother. It’s business as usual until a bitter divorce case turns into a murder investigation, and Jamie’s client becomes the prime suspect. When she can’t untangle truth from lies, Jamie enlists the help of Duke Broussard, her favorite private investigator, to try to clear her client’s name. And she’s hoping that, in his spare time, he can help her find her long-lost father…


My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

I have listened to several of Barbara Venkataraman’s books including the first and third Jamie Quinn mysteries, Death by Didgeridoo and Peril in the Park. This is the second book in the series so I kind of knew what was going to happen in Jamie’s personal life but I still liked finding out how it happened and, of course, there was a mystery to solve. 

I like Barbara Venkataraman’s style of writing and her sense of humor. I also think the narrator of the Jamie Quinn series is perfect for these stories. 

Even though there’s a murder to solve, it is still a fun and quick read (or listen). I definitely recommend The Case of the Killer Divorce. It is part of a series but does stand on its own.

Available on Amazon.
