My Thoughts

The Jamie Quinn Mysteries by Barbara Venkataraman is a box set collection of the first three books in the Jamie Quinn Mystery series. The collection comes in at a little over 330 pages. I thought the length of each book (especially when brought together as a collection like this) was just right. I found myself really liking Jamie from the start of book one, and I quickly read through the three books in this collection. I liked the story lines. These were cozies with just a little more ‘oomph’ than others. It just felt like they had something special going on in them. 🙂 I definitely recommend these books to anyone who likes fast, page-turning cozy mysteries with interesting stories and fun characters.
