I had the pleasure of reading Dial QR for Murder by A.E.H. Veenman.
This would technically be called a cozy mystery. The main character is a young attorney in a prominent Boston firm. When one of her clients is murdered, she teams up with the sexy assistant D.A. to solve the murder, butting heads both with the victim’s rich relatives and the main character’s mob-boss uncle, from whom she is in hiding.
This mystery is fast-paced and complex. The book has an intelligent and realistic romantic element, as well as rich subplots, but the main plot is definitely the mystery.
I really liked the characters, who are believable and nuanced. Having worked in a law firm, I enjoyed the work dynamic, as well, though I’ve never known an attorney who would try to solve a murder mystery, or who would openly date opposing counsel. But that’s part of what makes this book fun.
If you enjoy an intelligent mystery, I recommend this book. Ordering details are below.
✦✦ SYNOPSIS ✦✦
For defense attorney Isis Ferrelli, life is good—until the second day of the Norman Kane trial…
Her client was accused of using QR code software he’d developed to steal a drug called Fentanol. But when he’s murdered, Isis fears someone from her own past might be involved. Her uncle, Louis Fernoza, put her through law school. Now a mob boss, he wants to end their estrangement and make use of the star attorney he created.
To protect those she cares about, Isis turns to her crime blog and her alter-ego Marjorie Gardens to find answers…
MyThugShot.com is Isis’s resource to find out how Kane’s QR code was hacked to set him up for the theft, and who had decided “dead” was a better strategy than “framed.” With the help of her blog followers, she begins to dig into the Kane family, where no one is who they seem.
Photographs of a building, a Nieman Marcus loafer, and a programmer with two names…
When a new online member appears at the Kane estate, Isis’s investigation is thrown into chaos. He seems to know the murderer…and how to take Isis offline permanently.
In order to find a tech-savvy killer, Isis must take her search into the digital age…even at the risk of her own unmasking.

My passion for writing began with a hunger for books from fellow New Jerseyan Judy Blume, and Nancy Drew mysteries. And each Saturday, a side dish of The Hardy Boys whet my appetite for hunting down clues and solving crime. Thus began a three-course menu for becoming a writer.
For hors d’oeuvres, I sampled women’s fiction for a bit with novels, All Waters Gathering (2008) and Carruther’s Place (2011). It wasn’t until I realized murder should really be on the menu when the main course became my thriller, Barbecue(2011).
My plate’s not quite clean of things that go bump in the night—plenty of horror and creepy thrillers in the works!—but one must always save room for dessert.
Rich and sweet came Dial QR for Murder, the first Digital Age Cozy™ in the Marjorie Gardens Mystery series.
And I haven’t reached the icing on the cake just yet! I couldn’t have enjoyed this feast of writing from my home in Holland without my husband and our daughter—to who I owe thanks for all their patience and compassion when (at times) I bit off more than I could chew!
