Jeopardy in July by Barbara Venkataraman

Finished listening to Jeopardy in July by Barbara Ventkataraman.
This was my second Audible book. I could get used to it. The narrator did a great job with different character voices. :)

This is the 5th book in the Jamie Quinn Mystery series.



"Old people were dying at an alarming rate at La Vida Boca, a posh assisted living facility in Boca Raton, Florida. With its sterling reputation, dedicated staff, and top-notch medical care, none of the deaths are considered suspicious, but when members of the poker club start to die under strange circumstances, attorney Jamie Quinn finds herself once again embroiled in a mystery. With help from her new friend, Jessie Sandler, and her favorite P.I., Duke Broussard, Jamie uncovers a crime that took place forty years earlier. Can she stop the killer in time? Or is she in danger of becoming the next victim?"

I am so enjoying the Jamie Quinn mysteries. This one takes us to Boca Raton. As I mentioned before, I lived there many years ago. I enjoy the references to familiar places and culture. 

Jamie is still contemplating what the best fit for her as a lawyer may be. She really wants something less stressful. Ha!

Jamie continues to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and get mixed up in more murders. Assisted living facility? Art forgery? FBI? Never a dull moment. And her boyfriend, Kip is staying in Australia longer than planned. She thought things were getting serious and he seems to be finding reasons to stay away. Things are not going Jamie's way. 

This book is fast paced - a page turner if I had been reading it rather than listening to it. lol

There is never a dull moment much to Jamie's dismay. 

Barbara is currently working on Book Six - Villany at Vizcaya. I got a sneak peak and it looks really good. Jumps right into where Jeopardy in July left off at a fast pace. Can't wait to read it.

  1. Sounds like a good one. And it is a page turner, even if you are listening. I consider that reading just as much as turning an actual page or virtually turning a page on my Kindle. Glad you're liking a few audiobooks. :-)
