Publisher's Summary

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.

This series just keeps getting better!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes yes yes, it's smart, funny, the main character Jamie never acts foolishly, there's no crazy stuff, and the plot moves right along.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Peril in the Park?

Oddly, the scene where Jamie goes into "lawyer mode" with her boyfriend Kip when he doesn't want to tell her what is going on with the parks he manages. Also, I love that Jamie eats healthy vegetarian food.

Any additional comments?

Peril in the Park (Jamie Quinn Mystery Book 3) - This is the third book in Barbara Venkataramann's engaging series. I listened to the audio book narrated by the wonderful, almost addicting vocal talents of Carrie Lee Martz.


Carrie Lee, as the first person narrator's voice of Jamie Quinn, is perfect - touching, wry, tough, and vulnerable in turns. As the voice of the other memorable characters she is outstanding. It made this mystery very very entertaining. The author has the ability to write a naturally flowing story, nothing seemed forced or contrived.

I read the first book in the series, 'Death by Didgeridoo' and the second book Case of the Killer divorce. This book continues the story of Jamie and Kip, but could also be read as a stand alone book.


I was delighted to see the return of PI Duke Broussard. This time he's assisting Jamie in a personal matter. Kip, Jamie's boyfriend, is having problems with the parks he manages. There is a vandal at work. Then Jamie gets a threatening message and she is drawn into the mystery of who is doing this.

I love Jamie in her "lawyer mode", she's smart, but never loses her sense of humor. I love her realistic approach to problems, her vegetarian life style, and her cautious nature.

Barbara Venkataramann has created a character I can live with, one that is never cloying, foolish, swooning or implausible. Her books are not padded with filler, they move right along, keeping my interest.

For anyone that wants fun, easy to read books with a smart strong main character this is the series. I plan to listen to every one, and more than once.

It was good

It was good but not as great as the first 2 books. I enjoyed it but unfortunately didn't find it as well written or as interesting as the first two.
