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 was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the fourth installment in the Jamie Quinn Mysteries. I have read the previous three and so when I was gifted this book I was happy to read and review. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series and I have to say this installment did not disappointed. Ms. Venkataraman has written a main character that I find to be very likable and can relate to both on a personal and professional level. In addition to Jamie, the series has a cast of re-occurring characters that add to the strength of the story. I have to same I think my favorite secondary character is Duke Brussard, the PI who Jamie occasionally hires to assist her with her cases. What I particularly enjoyed about this installment is the way that the author wove together what appeared to be seemingly unrelated mysteries into a much larger mystery which is revealed toward the end of the novel. There is even a nice twist on the case Duke is working on which is unrelated to the case for which Jamie has hired him. The story had plenty of twists for me and I have to say that I was a little surprised at how the two mysteries related to each other. The story is well written with a nice pace. I find this series to be a quick and enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing what the author has in store for Jamie Quinn in the future.
