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.
This was a very fast and witty read. I received this as an E Book and decided to read it the other night before I went to bed. I was instantly hooked and finished the book in under 2 hours. The story was intriguing for the murder mystery and a bit funny and witty for the characters and the humor in their interactions. The story was short but there was a lot of great character and plot development in these short pages. I instantly connected with the main character Jaime Quinn and could picture the settings easily from the authors descriptions. I would classify this as a “fun” murder mystery and this would be a great poolside or beach read this summer! I can’t wait to check out some of the author’s other stories. She has a great skill for weaving a tale that makes you shiver and laugh at the same time!
