Surprising twists and a delightfully engaging main character
December 30, 2018
By practicing family law, Jamie Quinn often sees the worst side of people, like her current divorce case where a couple is fighting over their children. When the husband turns up dead, she needs to find evidence to keep the wife, her client, from being charged. To help discover any proof of her innocence, a PI named Duke Broussard is hired. Jamie knows the charismatic man after being his lawyer, plus he is helping her with a private matter. Hopefully, he will be able to give her some crucial facts related to both problems.
Barbara Venkataraman has Jamie living through a wide variety of experiences in the second book of the cozy mystery series, and some of the events are personal while others are connected to her being a lawyer. When she once again becomes involved in a murder investigation, she is not at a loss like before and comes across more confident. I liked how she has turned her life around, from feeling like she had no real purpose to helping others to the best of her ability. As Jamie tries to aid her client while dealing with her own issue of finding out what happened to her father, she must make some difficult choices. There is an abundance of amusement in the story, as discussions are packed with quick witted banter. What goes through her mind is frequently comical, too, and certainly clever. THE CASE OF THE KILLER DIVORCE has surprising twists and a delightfully engaging main characters. Rating - 4.5 Stars
