Death by Didgeridoo – Barbara Venkataraman


3/5 Didgeridoo Stars

On The Back:

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.

My Thoughts:

*I was contacted and asked by the author to write this review. All thoughts and opinions stated in this review are entirely my own.*

Most Indie books are hit and moss for me. There’s some simply amazing ones, and there’s some horrible ones; they’re just like every other type of book. However, this book was one of those hits. It was slightly rushed, but for it’s length there was nothing that could be done about it.

The characters were great. I loved Jamie and especially Duke. He was hilarious! I also loved Adam. In most cozy books 95% of the people are the same old same old. The MC has red, unseemly hair, her mom is overbearing, her dad is slightly detached, and her siblings seem to be so much more put together than the MC. However, I absolutely love it when authors deviate from that mold, like the author did in this book.

The mystery was well put together, there was no real reveal and it seems slightly rushed, however this book was short and in many shorter books the mystery feels rushed. Honestly, I don’t think there was anything the author could have done to prevent that.

Overall a solid first book. I’ll read the next one!
