I love the humor Venkataraman brings to her stories and I found myself laughing out loud several times. I'm eager for more of Jamie Quinn and her crazy group of friends.

Engaged in Danger is a fast-paced story with a compelling plot filled with intriguing subplots threading through the story line. The interesting characters and dilemmas are cleverly woven together to form a sensational story line. Jamie is likable and easy to relate to. This is a fantastic sleuth mystery. ~Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite~
This is a good cozy that romps through the lives of the characters and the case both. It's just the right length and it has a surprise ending. ~Long and Short Reviews~

A little background on the cast of characters… Jamie Quinn is a family law attorney in a small (one person) practice. She attended law school with her BFF, Grace Anderson, who is a lawyer in a prestigious securities law firm and has awesome connections. Duke Broussard is a playboy and P.I. who, besides being a client and friend, Jamie keeps on retainer for his creative investigative skills. Nick Dimitropoulos, State Attorney, appears to always be at odds with Jamie. Kip Simons, Jamie’s current and also first high school boyfriend, an outdoorsman and adventurer. Guillermo Franco, a Cuban activist, also brought into the storyline from Jamie’s past. Ana Maria Suarez, a surrogate mother, always ready with an encouraging word or a hug if Jamie needed one.
Jamie discovers even more about her lineage from several sources. This is a great continuing and intriguing storyline that runs between the books of the series. No spoilers here. This storyline alone is worth reading the series.
Romance fills the air, but not everyone is breathing healthy air if you know what I mean.
Is family law considered a high-risk profession? I would not have thought so prior to reading this story. Over two-dozen family law practices have turned down her client’s case. Taking this case could mean death to a legal career. Jamie convinces her BFF, Grace, to act as co-counsel in this high-profile divorce case to help a woman who wants only to cut all the strings binding her to her husband. She has lived under his thumb for decades. The problem, her powerful husband insists it will not happen. Will he go as far as to kill to keep his marriage, and secrets, intact? Will Jamie and Grace become collateral damage in this case?
Barbara Venkataraman is a gifted storyteller in my favorite genre of cozy mysteries. You will discover a fabulous cast of characters and more than one mystery to be solved in this story. It is not your typical whodunit. Romance, along with drama from friends and family alike are added to enrich the story. If you enjoy an entertaining, well-written, fun, and easy read; this book is for you.
In "Engaged in Danger" - A Jamie Quinn Mystery by Barbara Venkataraman anything is possible. And even though Hollywood, Florida where Jamie lives and practices family law is a small, quiet town surprising things happen there.
Three days after Kip announced his temp job and is packing for a three-month stint in Australia, an elegant, older woman walks into Jamie’s office seeking a divorce. Someone is trying to kill her spouse, but she doesn’t care—she just wants a divorce, and money is no problem. Interest piqued, Jamie soon learns the husband in question is the most “famous/infamous” (translated, rich, powerful, and politically connected) attorney in town. He also proves to be a crafty, dangerous opponent with fingers in many pies. On the home front, Jamie’s neighbors who are caring for their orphaned niece, ask Jamie to look into the details surrounding the recent plane crash that killed the child’s parents.
Enlisting the assistance of her BFF, corporate attorney Grace Anderson, along with that of the charming PI, Duke Broussard, a good old Louisiana boy who has one foot on either side of the law, Jamie simultaneously takes on the high-profile divorce case and the suspicious airplane crash. What ensues is an intriguing mix of characters and events interwoven into a mystery that satisfies even the pickiest fan.
While written as a stand-alone, this book is like a gift of Babushka dolls. Allusions to backstories and Jamie’s history with Kip, with her dad in Nicaragua whom she’s never met, with Grace, and with Duke can at times be distracting, at other times, tantalizing.
"Engaged in Danger" is a fast-paced, well-written cozy with its complex, quirky characters, and unique plot brings unexpected twists and turns and has more than a bit of romance tucked between its pages. Venkataraman tempers the story with wry, self-deprecating humor that entertains and engages the mind, tickles the funny-bone, warms the heart, and leaves the reader ready for more.

I have to admit after the first chapter in this book I was ready to throw my iPad across the room but that was Kip's fault not Jamies I was so angry at him I nearly didn't go back to the book seriously if you're in a committed relationship you don't go looking for a new job without discussing it with your partner let alone actually applying for and accepting a job on the other side of the freaking planet even if it was just for 3 months it was just so wrong the way he did that but I am proud of Jamie for internally freaking out heaps and only marginally freaking out in the restaurant that whole thing just didn't sit right with me that Kip didn't at least talk to Jamie about it all first but I guess they'll work it out they made some progress by the end of the book it's just not the way I thought there relationship worked in the previous books since they got back together they talked about honesty??? that seemed to be missing here.
ok rant over lol once I got past the first chapter and especially after Kip left I loved the mystery is was riveting so much so I couldn't put the book down which is why I still gave it a 5 star rating even after the first chapter :-)
