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

Did I enjoy this book: 
If you’re looking for the perfect book to read while relaxing by the pool sipping some fruity drink with an umbrella peeking over the side, this is it.

Clever and comical, The Case of the Killer Divorce has romance, murder, mental breakdowns, and even a search for 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 dead.

I have to go with 4½ stars out of 5 because I don’t like the ending. For me, it’s too abrupt.


Would I recommend it: Yes. It’s quick, fun, and unpredictable.

When she can’t untangle truth from lies, Jamie enlists the help of Duke Broussard, her favorite private investigator, to try to clear her client’s name. And she’s hoping that, in his spare time, he can help her find her long-lost father…
