Book "The Case of the Killer Divorce" by Barbara Venkataraman

About the Book: 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.

My Review: Another masterpiece from this talented author! In this book, we find Jamie Quinn back at family law practice. One of her cases is a divorce that turns into an homicide investigation and her client is the prime suspect. Too much for a family lawyer... Again she needs to use the help of her best friend Grace (a criminal lawyer) and her favorite private investigator Duke. While this investigation is taking place, Jamie is also trying to find her father. She always believed her father was dead and her mother never gave her much information about him. But after her mother's death, aunt Peg gave her a letter from her mother explaining the story about her father and she asked Duke to try to help her find if he was still alive.
Excellent story, excellent plot and a very entertaining story that will keep you hooked until you turn the last page! It took me around five hours to read the whole book.
I received this book from the author for reviewing and I was not requested to write a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
