Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent first installment of a new series

Would you consider the audio edition of Death by Didgeridoo to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily, but the narrator was excellent.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was interesting and unusual and the author was very successful at making it intriguing.


Which character – as performed by Carrie Lee Martz – was your favorite?

The protagonist, Jamie Quinn. Quinn is at a personal crossroads when the murder occurs, and so the book combines a classic "fish out of water" story (a family practice lawyer having to learn criminal law) and a tale of self-discovery with the traditional cozy elements of small town life, friends, and family. That adds depth and works well as both motivation and characterization for the protagonist.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not necessarily.


Any additional comments?

I think "charming" is the best word to describe this first installment in a new cozy mystery series. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

Great first in a series!

What did you love best about Death by Didgeridoo?

I liked the fact that it took just over two hours to listen to, and that it was tame enough that I could listen to it in the car with my preteen son.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes! We felt really bad for poor Adam, and knew that he COULDNT have committed murder! The suspect list was so long, though. It was hard to tell until the killer was revealed near the end of the story. Not what we expected !


What does Carrie Lee Martz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Carrie Lee Marx is a MASTER storyteller! I realize that she didn't create it, but she adds such interest to the characters. I will be reading book 3 in ebook format, and I will definitely hear HER voice in my head as I read .


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Guns don't kill people.....Didgeridoos do!
