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.


Review:  I just finished reading The Case of the Killer Divorce, a new book in the Jamie Quinn mystery series by Barbara Venkataraman and it was a great story. I thought it was exciting and a fun read. Jamie Quinn is a lawyer who is working on a new case that takes a bad divorce to another level. It involves  murder and her client is the suspect. Jamie will have to work hard to solve this case. Divorce is rarely pretty, but how often does it end in death? This is definitely more than splitting up assets.

The author did a great job of keeping me interested in the story and I really liked how the characters had endings. There were characters from the first book, that I did not read. I would have liked a longer ending. It felt a little rushed to me. However it is a short read, so I did not expect a lot of explanations. The characters are fun to read and I would love to read about them in another book!  I give this book a 4 out of 5. I was given this book for the purpose of a  review and all opinions are my own.
