Engaged in Danger

Jamie Quinn solves mysteries with a difference.  She is a single practitioner divorce/family practice lawyer who doesn't usually take on the high profile cases.  Then Nan Glasser walks into her office and says she wants a divorce.

Nan's soon to be ex husband is one of the well-known lawyers in town, and he has blocked every legal office in town from helping Nan.  He is also up to a whole lot of no good.  With the help of her best friend, Grace, Jamie is determined to help Nan.

Barbara Venkataraman has an engaging writing style.  She makes the reader feels as if Jamie is telling you the story.  The characters are real, as are the situations they get themselves embroiled in, and believe me trouble finds Jamie wherever she is.

I am enjoying reading a series where the main character isn't tripping over a body in chapter one.  It's not that I don't enjoy those books too, it's just that small towns don't really have a murder once a week.  Jamie's crimes that she must solve are different and entertaining.

I will definitely keep reading (or listening to)  the Jamie Quinn mysteries, if not just to keep up with the direction of the characters.  Could be fun!
