The Case of the Killer Divorce (Jamie Quinn Mystery #2)The Case of the Killer Divorce by Barbara Venkataraman


Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. We share the first sentence and whatever thoughts of impressions it provokes. For the Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice, we share a few lines from either page 56 or 56%.


Opening Line:

“With all due respect, Your Honour–” I interrupted, desperate to keep my client out of jail. I knew better than to argue with a judge, but still, I had to try.



We were ushered into a drab room where everything was brown, the carpet, the table ,the chairs. Even the walls were beige/ It looked like a room were hope went to die. We sat down and waited.


Book Summary: 

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.

  1. The Case of the Killer Divorce sounds like a fun read! I think the only book I’ve read by an author on your recommended list is the Lightning Thief! I need more hours in the day to read 🙂

  2. The first person voice gives it intensity. I agree with some of the other comments that the father subplot might be challenging. Depends on how it’s handled.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. Ooh, The Case of the Killer Divorce sounds really intriguing. I love the title.

    And hm, I think I constantly am throwing Krista and Becca Ritchie at NA readers, Taylor Jenkins Reid at all readers and Stephanie Garber at YA fans. But definitely not limited to only them. I’m sort of spacing out today on authors? Because there’s so many that I recommend ahhaha

  4. I haven’t read many Discworld books, but the ones I have I’ve really enjoyed. Seanan McGuire is one of those authors that keeps popping up on my recommendations but I still haven’t read any of her book – yet. 😉
    I hope you enjoy your weekend, Louise. Here’s my BBH Post

    1. Thanks Flora! I really hope you enjoy anything you pick up by Seanan MacGuire. The great thing is, she writes in so many genres, you can pick something that suits you!


  5. The Case of the Killer Divorce sounds good! I hope she didn’t get in trouble for speaking up to the judge. Seanan McGuire made my recommendation list too. 🙂 Love her books! I really want to give Intisar Khanani a try. I hope you have a great week!
