A Great Fun Entertaining Series!

What made the experience of listening to The Case of the Killer Divorce the most enjoyable?

A great cast of characters, a fast moving plot with no filler text and the amazing vocal talents of Carrie Lee Martz.

What other book might you compare The Case of the Killer Divorce to and why?

It reminds me of the Stephanie Plum books but doesn't have the never ending pursuit of weird boyfriends, which gets tiresome.

Have you listened to any of Carrie Lee Martz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, the first book in the series, 'Death by Didgeridoo' .. she continues the wry funny and very natural performance.

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

Yes, but I needed to get some sleep, lol.

Any additional comments?

The Case of the Killer Divorce (Jamie Quinn Mystery Book 2) - Barbara Venkataramann has written another winner. 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 was happy to read the first book in the series, 'Death by Didgeridoo' but I was delighted to read this one because it showed me that this was truly a great series I could stay with.

Written with humor and insight, the plots develop the characters more in this book. Jamie enlists PI Duke Broussard to help her track down her biological father. Jamie is also the lawyer representing the wife in a bitter divorce that ends in the husband's death. Jamie needs Duke Broussard to help clear her client.

It kept my interest and was highly entertaining throughout. This series stands out as exceptional among fun cozy mysteries. I'm glad I got the next book in the series because the plot between Jamie and her search for her father develops further.

Thoroughly enjoyable mystery!

I enjoyed the characters and the writing was very good. It is a really fast read and you don't have to think a lot. If you are looking for a quick read (or listen in this case) for that boring airplane ride, this is a good choice!
