Review: Death by Didgeridoo by Barbara Venkataraman

Product Description:
Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, still reeling from the death of her mother, is pulled into a game of deception, jealousy, and vengeance when her cousin, Adam, is wrongfully accused of murder. It's up to Jamie to find the real murderer before it's too late. It doesn't help that the victim is a former rock star with more enemies than friends, or that Adam confessed to a murder he didn't commit. 

My Thoughts: 

I thought that Death by Didgeridoo was a cute and quick read. The mystery was simple and easy to figure out. Jamie has a wonderful sense of humor and there were several lines in the book that made me laugh out loud. She was fun and I really wished that she would have had an opportunity to get to know the prosecuting attorney, Nick, a little better. Hopefully there will be a little more romance in book two of the Jaime Quinn series, The Case of the Killer Divorce.

My review is based on the audio book read by Carrie Lee Martz. Carrie's reading style was a too monotone for me and her portrayal of the PI Duke's southern accent drove me absolutely insane. Each and every word was slow and drawn out in an overly exaggerated manner. I feel that had I read the book, I would have given Death by Didgeridoo a full five star rating.

My Recommendation: 

I recommend this one for anyone who loves cozy mysteries.
