Overview

Sixth in the USA-Today and Nook Top-5 bestselling Leigh Koslow Mystery Series!

After a real-time, 10-year hiatus, Leigh and all her friends and family are back... and better than ever!

It's been ten long years since Leigh Koslow last stumbled onto a body. She thought she had a reprieve.
She was wrong.

Hapless advertising copywriter Leigh Koslow, who was last seen joyfully announcing to her politician husband that she was pregnant, is now a middle-aged mom who is more than happy to leave the macabre pandemonium of her thirties behind. Unfortunately, Leigh's killer karma hasn't really deserted her... it's only been biding its time.

When an innocent walk in the woods with her dog turns up yet another corpse, Leigh begins to get worried. It's bad enough that the victim is a client of her agency. It's even worse that he is the same unscrupulous real estate developer who's been conniving to bulldoze her Aunt Bess's homestead. And it would be a whole lot better for everyone in Leigh's family if her cousin Cara's husband hadn't brawled with the man in front of a churchful of witnesses an hour before the murder. But fate is what it is, and as Leigh's beleaguered friend, Detective Maura Polanski, sets out once again to save the Koslow clan from self-destruction, the women face their toughest battle yet. Because not only has Leigh failed to grow out of her inborn talent for trouble, she's bestowed it on the next generation...

Her romantic novels range from women’s fiction with romantic elements to a blend of romance and mystery, beginning with her traditionally published contemporaries, the award-winning Long Time Coming and Meant To Be (now a Nook #2 bestseller), and continuing with her exciting new series of interconnected romantic novels, Pacific Horizons, whose characters follow the migration of the humpback whales to some of the most gorgeous locations on earth.

I read and enjoyed all of the previous Leigh Koslow mysteries. They are fun and entertaining and the mysteries don't suffer a bit from the lightheartedness. Koslow has a weird habit of happening upon dead bodies. Lucky for her she know some good folks in good places to keep her out of trouble. Most of the time, at least. It has been a while since the last Koslow mystery, and I wasn't sure how it would all come together. I did find my answer! It all came together beautifully! Koslow is married now and has a set of twins that absolutely add to the story! There is a husband and also, of course a Corgi who fits right into this madcap extended family. By extended, I mean... well, I think I will let you find out. This is an excellent stand alone read. But why would you want to deprive yourself of all of the equally fun and entertaining books that lead up to this one? Don't do it! Start at the beginning of the series, and for a little added spice, read the other novels by this author. I suspect that you will consider it time well spent. All of these books are fun and appropriate for all ages, I promise. And one last thing, the Koslow books take place in the Pittsburgh Pa area which might make it even more fun if you live in the area. Oh, and one more thing.. Edie Claire, the author, is an animal lover, and this shows in her books. The cats and dogs have as much personality as do the other characters. No silly discussions among themselves you understand, they just behave as they are meant to, and add much to the stories. highly recommended.

Glad "Never" series has a new installment. 10 years have passed, and the characters have changed, like we all do. Nicely done, very enjoyable.

A very enjoyable series. Each book is a stand alone mystery but you get a real feel for the characters if you are able to read the series starting with book 1. Written with a touch of humor. If you like the Kinsey Milhone mysteries, you will also enjoy the Leigh Koslow mysteries. The only criticism I have is that all the books in the series so far, 1 through 6, do have a few editing errors such as missing words; repeated words in the same sentence, etc. Without the editing issues, this would be a 5-star series.

Own a Corgi...so I was totally sucked in by the title! I haven't read the earlier ones, but was able to meet the characters. They are charming and lovely and funny. And our Corgi is also as smart as a clothes hanger... It was good enough that I'll go back and look for the earlier books to start at the beginning (which is how I prefer to read my books - to meet the characters at the beginning and be with them as they evolve).
