Death by Didgeridoo (A Jamie Quinn Mystery, Book 1) by Barbara Venkataraman BOOK REVIEW

Death by Didgeridoo (A Jamie Quinn Mystery, #1)Death by Didgeridoo (A Jamie Quinn Mystery, Book 1)
by Barbara Venkataraman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Death by Didgeridoo is the first in a new Cozy Mystery series called the Jamie Quinn Mystery Series by author Barbara Venkataraman.

Jamie Quinn is a lawyer, family law that is, you know custody, divorces and those types of things. She knows nothing about criminal law and even less about murders. She is still trying to gather herself after her mother's death six months ago, when she gets the phone call that her cousin is at the police station on suspicion of murder. Her cousin Adam has Asperger's Syndrome and would never hurt anyone, so this has her and her aunt in a panic, now what to do.

With the help of her best friend Grace, a securities lawyer and Duke, a private investigator that she represented in a divorce, Jamie sets out to find out who the real murderer is and get her cousin off the hook, before the pretty-boy District Attorney has him tried and locked up without blinking an eye.

The story is cute and well written. There is great information on dealing with Adam and his Asperger's. There is also some great music information in this book and it deals with a death by a musical instrument. The investigative work that Jamie herself undertakes is pretty simple and most people could do, the more complicated stuff Duke handles, but over all it is a cute story that is a quick read. It will have you wanting more!
