Books 1-3 of the Jamie Quinn Mystery Series! Including:
"Death by Didgeridoo"-Winner of the Indie Book of the Day award. 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.
"The Case of the Killer Divorce"-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.
"Peril in the Park"-There's big trouble in the park system. Someone is making life difficult for Jamie Quinn's boyfriend, Kip Simons, the new director of Broward County parks. Was it the angry supervisor passed over for promotion? The disgruntled employee Kip recently fired? Or someone with a bigger ax to grind? If Jamie can't figure it out soon, she may be looking for a new boyfriend because there’s a dead guy in the park and Kip has gone missing! With the help of her favorite P.I., Duke Broussard, Jamie must race the clock to find Kip before it’s too late.
A preview of the next Jamie Quinn Mystery, "Engaged in Danger," can be found at the end of the book.
I can not for the life of me remember if I have read a cozy where the main character is a lawyer. So this is going to be probably a first for me.
Thank you so much to Barbara for allowing me to read your books. I loved it.
I am not going to go into detail about the story, however the book started with a sad note. Death of Jamie's Mother.
She was grieving and when life threw a curve ball and she went with the flow. I loved that about her. She is caring and wants to help people as much as she could.
But even for me I think one thing that made me come back was for Kip and Jamie. The mystery aspect of this was not as strong as I would have wanted it to be. The suspense and the humor with some down to earth relationships and over the top relationships made me want to come back every time.
This is a Collection of the first three books in the series which could be read as a standalone but I would suggest you get it all and read it all in order.
