The Case of the Killer Divorce by Barbara Venkataraman
The Case of the Killer Divorce, the second book in the Jamie Quinn Mystery series, has Jamie returning to her family law practice. While representing a wife, Rebecca Soloman, in a hostile divorce, the husband turns up dead. Jamie investigates with PI Duke Broussard to uncover the truth and find a killer.
I enjoyed this, the plot was very intricate for such a short book, lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. There was a little more character development, plus meeting an old high school boyfriend and rekindling a romance, and progress on the search for her father. Handled in her characteristic wit, the story was touching, funny and charming.
Overall, an enjoyable book, and at novella length, a great way to spend an afternoon. This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the first in the series, because it’s just so darn good.
