Review: The Case of the Killer Divorce by Barbara Venkataraman

Product Description:
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 Thoughts:
A couple of months ago I listened to the first Jaime Quinn mystery, Death by Didgeridoo, and liked it but had a hard time with the narration. For that reason I chose to read this second book instead of listening to it and thoroughly enjoyed this quick book. 

Jaime is a fun character and I love her adventures. The Case of the Killer Divorce has three main plot lines but they don't distract from each other and they wrap up nicely with one possibly segueing into the next book in the series. 

If there was one downside to these Jamie Quinn mysteries I would have to say that they're too short. I would love more mystery and investigating but I do love them as quick and short reads.

My Recommendation:
I recommend this book and the series for anyone who loves cozy mysteries.
