The whole point of a mystery is to solve it. When a mystery writer leaves major loose ends I always feel cheated, as I did here. Where was the body all that time? And why didn't the murderer search or destroy the house during the years it was empty? Why didn't Paul Fischer make some better provision for getting his secret out before he died-- it wasn't as if he died suddenly and without warning?
Because this was a first novel some mistakes are forgivable, but I would wish the editor had been a little more on her toes when it came to catching these things.
I did have a favorite character though and I don't think he got enough space. Warren the unrepentent Trekkie politician gave me the only laugh outloud moment in the book.

As always I got the first book for free and was really surprised to get a good crime story with likeable characters. The story keeps you guessing until the end. I will buy the other books in this series for sure.

In addition to the great mystery plot, I enjoyed the setting and the characters. Leigh Koslow is very human and very humourous. She is also more likable, more normal, and more moral than most other single female heroines. Edie Claire's writing reminds me somewhat of Joan Hess. But Joan would have written Maura as the heroine and had the Ozarks instead of Pittsburgh as the setting. I would like to read more about Maura (the police woman)and her mother. In fact the book explores three very different mother /daughter relationships: Cara has 'cut the cord' and married, Maura left but returned to care for her mom, and Leigh is still entangled in breaking that cord. I look forward to reading more about these six women.

I enjoyed reading Never Buried. It was the type of mystery I enjoy---an intriguing plot with believable characters. I stray away from mysteries that are too horrific and scary because I'd never sleep at night. Never Buried was a refreshing change---it got me thinking about who did it in an entertaining way. It's a great book for an afternoon of enjoyable reading. The plot had many twists and turns---it kept my mind running! I found the main character, Leigh Koslow, to be a very likeable 90s woman with a good sense of humor. I could identify with her--- turning thirty, being single. I can't wait until Edie Claire's next book comes out so I can see what new adventure Leigh has found!

Just finished reading this mystery and went on-line to see if there is a sequel. Leigh is a good natured person who agrees to assist her pregnant cousin and ends up with a long-dead body in the garden. The twists and turns of the plot are intriguing. The characters are interesting but I found her cousin (Cara) too self-centered despite her medical problems. Cara's husband was also rude and ungrateful. I found that a bit annoying. However, I enjoyed the rest of the characters and hope Leigh finds some romance in the future. I look forward to more of her adventures.

This book has all the elements of a classic mystery: evolving plot, evocative setting, and engaging characters. It was a pleasant addition to have it set in Pittsburgh, a city with its share of old neighborhoods and charming scenery. The mystery was compelling, with more than a touch of humor (cat lovers will recognize life with a spoiled, beloved,pet). I look forward to more Leigh Koslow adventures. There's plenty of possibilities here! Thank you, Ms. Claire!

As a mystery lover, Edie Claire's Never Buried was the best I've read in a long time. The story has everything a mystery buff could want--an old house filled with secrets, great characters who are like old friends and a dead body in the backyard hammock! You will be hooked from the first page, fill your coffee cup and sit back to enjoy this one!

I picked up this book and loved it! The characters are so human and there are three women with three different relationships with their mothers. It's fast paced, witty and enjoyable. I suggest picking up a copy and discover the talent of Edie Claire!

I just finished the book a few hours ago and I am still thinking about it. It is an excellent first novel for Edie Claire and I cannot wait to read her next one. Good job!!!
