    Ann-Marie

    The only reason I read this one is because it has a corgi in it. It was moderately amusing. I will read more of the series, because the corgi is true to life, totally motivated by good and cuddles.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. I'd only read one other Leigh Kaslow books, 4 years ago, but got right back into the family of characters! Many plot twists, red herrings, and possible suspects.... and I didn't foresee the ending until it happened. I'd definitely read more by this author.

    Okay, I have to admit what I liked most about this book was the corgi in the story — I’m a sucker for stumpy dogs. But I also enjoyed the story itself. The characters were well drawn and interesting. The family dynamics made for some good dialogue and there were plenty of spunky female characters, including a very smart and independent elementary school age girl who was instrumental in solving the crime. We had the requisite villains, both male and female, who were as nasty as they needed to be t Okay, I have to admit what I liked most about this book was the corgi in the story — I’m a sucker for stumpy dogs.

We had the requisite villains, both male and female, who were as nasty as they needed to be to add drama and conflict. Admittedly closer to a 3.5 than a full 4, this murder mystery kept my interest and entertained me. I recommend it for a good beach read.

    Leigh is still finding dead bodies. Her children are already pre-teens and she is very protective of them; her very inquisitive daughter is far too interested in police work and bodies. While out walking her corgi, she finds the body of a well-dressed man near the church, who turns out to be a former client of her ad agency who is trying to buy up the land around the church and their homes. Unfortunately he also had a fight with her cousin Cara's husband Gil while trying to persuade the church b Leigh is still finding dead bodies. Her children are already pre-teens and she is very protective of them; her very inquisitive daughter is far too interested in police work and bodies. While out walking her corgi, she finds the body of a well-dressed man near the church, who turns out to be a former client of her ad agency who is trying to buy up the land around the church and their homes. Unfortunately he also had a fight with her cousin Cara's husband Gil while trying to persuade the church board to sell. Leigh's mother gathers the women of the family to find someone to provide an alibi for Gil. Meanwhile, the nefarious Diana Saxton is doing her best to pin the murder on Gil, to get revenge for his spurning her advances and firing her. Lots of other suspects enter the picture, but with her police detective friend Maura, they eventually figure it out. Fairly riveting, as more suspects (and bodies) keep appearing.

    Listening at work while doing brainless things -- typing, filing, etc. If you don't know this about me, I have a corgi named Buttercup. The corgi that introduced me to corgis was a five-year-old stray my kids dragged home and named Chewy over a decade ago. The corgi in this story is named Chewy. I'm hoping for a bit of corgi fluff to help pass the time. Update 8/5: This narrator is so freaking irritating! Also, not enough corgi time. But mainly, I can't stand the narrator. I got about 1/4 in bef Listening at work while doing brainless things -- typing, filing, etc. If you don't know this about me, I have a corgi named Buttercup.

I got about 1/4 in before being completely done with her grating voice, terrible accents, and weird intonation. I think it should be a quick read but I'm not motivated to drive to the library and pick up a physical copy and the ebook isn't an option so...I'm over it.

    Typical mystery series, but when a dog is involved, I seem to enjoy it more.

    This was the first book I listened to by the author. I enjoyed the mystery. However, there were so many sighs by the characters, throaty growls by characters, and very motile eyebrows by the characters that I found myself almost counting those distractions.

    A complex murder mystery A complex murder mystery, with a calculating harridan throwing all manner of false clues and theories mixed with a secondary plot—that to the well attuned reader would have given the answer.

    Excellent mystery I love books about dogs and mysteries. Leigh stumbles across a dead body and her cousin’s husband is accused of killing him. The family works to clear his name. Rated PG

    Kind of boring . Lots of interrelated characters. Lots of pets. LEIGH accidentally finds all kinds of murder and gets caught up in the fray. Accidentally solves it too - Brandon Lyle the bad developer trying to buy up everyone's property found shot.

    Pat Oatman

    A cute and excitingly funny little mystery. The best ingredients for a really good story is children and dogs. This cozy mystery has both. It is a fun time, an easy read and a good story. Characters are believable and interesting. Keeps you on your toes, keeping up with the girls

    Robin

    This was enjoyable. Basically a soap opera/murder mystery with descriptions of a cute corgi thrown in. I got it as a free ebook and I only downloaded it because of the corgi, expecting it to be terrible. It exceeded my expectations. It was a quick escapist read.

    Very cozy mystery This book started slowly, but picked up the pace as characters were added. There were a couple on interesting 'bad guys', which made it more interesting than some of the cozy mystery books. .. the real killer was a surprise! I enjoyed this quick read!

    Never con a Corgi It took me forever to read this book. I wasn't find of the writing, not the characters. To me, the story didn't flow and seemed forced, with too many characters that had no real depth to them.

    Review Always love a Leigh Koslow mystery. I can never guess who the murderer is. I especially like the local locations and the animals.

    Good mystery. For once a mystery which had no obvious solution. A totally unexpected killer. Lots of good people, though most are quite weird.

    Sure, the cute dog on the cover drew me in, but the mystery was involved, the characters interesting, and the writing excellent. I'll read more from this author. I liked her sense of humor, too.

    I was very excited to find out that after a 10 year hiatus, Edie Claire had written a new Leigh Koslow mystery. This series began with Never Buried in 1999, and I have read and enjoyed all the books. This new one begins with Leigh and the others in her circle all aged as if the series had been going on in real time since the last of the five previous books was published (about 10 years ago).

So now we have Leigh middle aged and happily married with two great kids and a successful part time career. She certainly has grown up. but she hasn't lost her propensity for stumbling upon the bodies of murder victims. I liked this book, but not quite as much as the earlier ones. If you have never read a Leigh Koslow mystery I suggest you start with the first one and read them in order. I was disappointed in the way the story was resolved, and somewhat annoyed that some of the plot threads were left hanging. Recommended.
