I just finished reading Never Buried, Leigh Koslow Mystery Series, Book 1, by Edie Claire. It's a mystery, that I found for free on Amazon. It's also available on Smashwords.

I think that the reason the author made this book available for free is that it's the first book in a series, and was originally published in 1999.

This was a fun, fast read, but also a really good mystery. I didn't guess 'whodunnit' at all, until the end of the book.

I'll just say a few words about the plot. Leigh has just moved out of her apartment (cockroach problems), and moved in with her pregnant cousin whose husband is in Japan. One of the first nights Leigh's sleeping in the old newly renovated Victorian house, she notices a strange man in the yard. The following morning she makes a very unpleasant discovery in the hammock outside. It's soon apparent that someone wants the two cousins out of the house and the threats escalate. Leigh's cousin won't be scared from her home and she and Leigh start looking into the history of the house (despite the disapproval of the investigating police officer, Leigh's old room mate from college).

Unlike many other Kindle freebies, this was a well written and well edited book. I think I only spotted one spelling mistake in the whole book. I can recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries (or who appreciates any well written freebie book).
