Divorce Is Murder by Elka Ray-Goddess Fish Promo Tour-Review

About the book 
As teens, they bullied her. Twenty years on, she's not scared of them. Except she should be...

After returning to her quiet hometown to care for her ailing mom, divorce lawyer Toby Wong is hired by Josh Barton, a guy who broke her heart as a teen at summer camp. Now a wealthy entrepreneur, Josh wants to divorce Tonya, the mean girl who tormented Toby all those years ago. When Tonya is found murdered, Josh is the prime suspect. 
Together with her fortune-teller mom and her pregnant best friend, Toby sets out to clear Josh, whom she still has a guilty crush on. As she delves deeper into Tonya's murder, Toby keeps running into catty ex-campers she'd rather forget. Are her old insecurities making her paranoid? Only too late does she realize she's in danger. 

The first entry in an addictive new series, Divorce is Murder introduces fans of mystery and romance to an irresistibly smart and sarcastic new heroine - Chinese Canadian divorce lawyer Toby Wong. 

And I thought 
Fast paced.  A very fast read for me.  Divorce Is Murder kept me interested and turning the pages. 
I enjoyed the characters.  Toby is hard to describe.  She must be a very good lawyer.  She's a very good friend and cares about people.  But she is really, really insecure and can't get past all the drama from one summer at camp.  
The flashbacks and all the references to summer camp became a bit daunting to me.  
I enjoyed the mystery part of the story. 
I enjoyed the ending. 
I was left wondering how this series continues on since this first
books plot centered so much on the group of characters teenage years. 

I'll give this series a whirl when the next book is released and see how it goes from there.

  1. Many thanks for reading & sharing your thoughts! I'm starting on edits for Book 2 now - by facing her past in Book 1, Toby has gained confidence in the next installment, allowing her to make good romantic choices (and of course to solve a new mystery...)
