Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 

If you’re like me,  the first question you ask when you see this title is, what’s a didgeridoo? It’s defined in the book as “an Australian Aboriginal wind instrument.” Basically, it’s a long wooden tube . . . 

We can all rest peacefully tonight with that little tidbit of knowledge.  It’s definitely not a typical murder weapon. And the story’s not a typical mystery. 

I enjoyed reading about Jamie Quinn and her lovable band of characters having the time of their lives solving a murder mystery. Not a lot of violence. Not a lot of drama. Just a fun, short, enjoyable story.


Would I recommend it: Yes. It’s not a serious work of art but it’s a quick, lighthearted read. Enjoy.


About the book – from Goodreads: Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, still reeling from the death of her mother, is pulled into a game of deception, jealousy, and vengeance when her cousin, Adam, is wrongfully accused of murder. It’s up to Jamie to find the real murderer before it’s too late. It doesn’t help that the victim is a former rock star with more enemies than friends, or that Adam confessed to a murder he didn’t commit.




  1. This sounds like a book I would love, I’m definitely going to check it out!

  2. Woah…that is incredibly strange. o.O Haha! I live in Australia, so I’ve seen/”pretended to play” a digeridoo before. They’re weird. lol I can’t say the premise drags me in, but I’m glad you enjoyed it!


  1. […] the main character’s long lost father. Many of the same lovable characters that solved crimes in Death by Didgeridoo are back. They work together to discover how a man in a contentious divorce ends up unexpectedly […]
