Finally, life is good for reluctant family law attorney, Jamie Quinn--her father may get his visa soon, her boyfriend is the bomb, and her law practice is growing like crazy--but when she agrees to take on a high-profile divorce case, everything falls apart. What looked like an opportunity to work with her friend Grace and make some serious bucks has turned into a deadly game, one that could destroy their friendship and tear their town apart. Why couldn't Jamie just leave well enough alone?
I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I have listened to several of Barbara Venkataraman’s books including the Jamie Quinn mysteries. I like her sense of humor and enjoy listening to her books. Engaged in Danger was no exception although the narrator seemed to be really concentrating to get the different voices right, so she ended up just reading the story. The voices were easy to differentiate though.
The story flows well and there is more than one mystery to be solved. Jamie is working on two different mysteries at the same time and the way they twisted and were solved was interesting and unique.
Jamie’s boyfriend Kip isn’t in this book much. They’re still very much in love but he has to go out of the country for work. Duke is Jamie’s go to PI and is a good friend. I didn’t think I’d like him when he was introduced in the first book but he’s a good guy and a good friend.
I definitely recommend this book but I would have enjoyed it more if I’d read it rather than listened to it. It’s one of those books that leaves you with a good feeling. It is part of a series but does stand on its own.
I've always loved this author's books, and the Jamie Quinn books are some of my favorite cozy mysteries. I'm a little sad that she changed narrators for this book, as I always hear Martz whenever I read the ebooks. Fay Annette did a good job, and her base voice is very similar, but some of the character voices were different, and it messed with me. Sort of like watching a favorite movie dubbed over by different actors. All in all, I'm glad I listened to the story, and I am looking forward to more in this series.
