Overview

"A funny, fast-paced, clever, and unusual mystery that will have readers clamoring for more. Sheer delight."--Carolyn Hart

"A thoroughly delightful debut. Bright, breezy, and witty. I couldn't put it down."--Tamar Myers

The truth about what happened in 1949 went to Paul Fischer's grave... Too bad his body didn't!

Advertising copywriter Leigh Koslow doesn't pack heat--just a few extra pounds. And she doesn't go looking for trouble. When she moved into her cousin Cara's refurbished Victorian house, she wasn't planning on discovering a corpse--certainly not one that had been embalmed ten years before. But as anyone in the small Pittsburgh borough of Avalon could tell her, her cousin's house has a history attached. A history dating back to two mysterious deaths in the summer of 1949.

Someone wants Leigh and Cara out of the house--someone who has something to hide. But that someone doesn't know Leigh's impetuous cousin, and when Cara digs her heels in, Leigh looks to her old college chum, local policewoman Maura Polanski, for help. But the answers the trio find only point to more questions. Were the scandalous deaths of fifty years ago really an accident and a suicide? Or were they murder?

The nearer the women get to the truth, the more desperate someone becomes. Because some secrets are better off kept. Especially when they hit close to home!

Originally published in mass market paperback by NAL/Penguin, Putnam, Inc. in 1999. Large-Print Edition published by Thorndike, 2002.

    700 page nook book. The editing was well done. How nice it is to be able to say that! This was an entertaining story. It was well written, the plot was great and had a good flow to it. The scenes changed smoothly. I was not over whelmed with too many people. There was a bit of humor and sexual tension. The murder was not overly graphic. I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it for mature readers, ages 16 and up. Younger then that would be scared off by the length and bored by the details.

    Good book

    Would recommend to someone who wants a good, entertaining book to relax with. The series is well worth reading. The author is good to start but gets even better as she goes along. One reviewer mentions sexual tension but I am not sure where they found that. A future interest is introduced but not even begins to explore. If you are looking for any explicit sex this wont be where you find it!

    Highly Recommended--do check out all of her books.

    I think I've read all of the "Never..." books now, and I'd be hard-pressed to choose a favorite. The characters are well-developed and endearing. I even love the cat. Romantic without being cheesy, suspenseful without being too dark. They never give away the villain too early. Can't wait for the next one!

    different

    The book was interesting reading and I did not suspect the villian in the story. Never buried was a different twist for a plot.

    Review

    This book starts with a dead body in the back yard that opens old wounds from decades past. Sassy ladies and long buried memories keep this a real page turner. A must read.

    This is the first Leigh Koslow book I have read, and I got it be

    This is the first Leigh Koslow book I have read, and I got it because a lot of people have recommended her series to me. They said it is funny, light reading, a quirky mystery, and they were right! I enjoyed it and liked it enough to try the next one. It's not the greatest mystery I have ever read but the characters are fun to spend time with, and that is an important part of a cozy, so I liked it and would recommend it to others who like cozy mysteries. It's funny in places and the characters and the town are vividly imagined.

    Not bad

    I thought the book was great for being free, but if I had bought this, it would have become another book I donated somewhere. The story was well written, but I don't know why people keep saying that the ending was shocking/a twist, I thought it was pretty obvious. It's a great read, but don't expect anything amazing

    A great cozy

    This was a cozy mystery that I really enjoyed. For once I hadn't accurately named the villain, which doubles the enjoyment for me. I look forward to reading more by this author.

    Great Read and Very Intriguing mystery!

    Loved this mystery, and could hardly put it down to sleep! The Leigh Koslow character was good, and not the usual scenario for mysteries. I would definitely recommend this book, and I plan to read more by Edie Claire!

    Okay

    The author has a fairly good plot going. I just never connected with the main characters. The story overall did not draw me in.

    I liked this mystery enough to buy the next one. I enjoyed the characters and hearing references about Pittsburgh. I did not guess the ending which makes this story a true success.

    Loved it

    I love a good mystery and this book sure delivered. It was witty and well written. Having grown up across the river from Avalon, it was a kick reading all those familiar towns, roads and familiar places. I am looking forward to reading more of this authors work.
