Edie Claire talks about Never Buried
What of mystery do you like to read? My favorites have always been the classics: Agatha Christie, Mary Stewart, and Barbara Michaels. I admire these writers' ability to engage me right off the bat, then keep the suspense going--all without resorting to the use of vulgar language or graphic violence! I like a book with characters that seem real to me, with women who are more likely to pack a box of Dexatrim and a lottery ticket than a gun. And I like a sense of real mystery--lingering questions about the past, hidden compartments in rambling old houses, and a puzzle I can sink my teeth into without needing to take notes. Plus, as an animal lover and a veterinarian, it's always nice to have something furry slinking about!
In writing Never Buried, I've tried to write the kind of mystery I most love to read. So if any of the above intrigues you, please give it a try. Here's what Carolyn Hart, Tamar Myers, and Eve Sandtsrom had to say:
Carolyn Hart: "Never Buried, Edie Claire's debut mystery, features down-sized ad exec Leigh Koslow in a funny, fast-paced, clever, and unusual mystery that will have readers clamoring for more. Edie Claire writes with style and dash, creating characters with real pains, aches, fears, and foibles. Sheer delight."
Tamar Myers: "A thoroughly delightful debut. Bright, breezy, and witty. I couldn't put it down."
Eve Sandstrom: "Never Buried kept me up until 2 a.m. Leigh Koslow is a great addition to the ranks of amateur detectives. The setting was a welcome change."
I hope you agree!
