Twelfth in the USA-Today and Nook Top-5 bestselling Leigh Koslow mystery series!
How many dandelions does it take to spell disaster?
Claudia Hemmings never cared for her next-door neighbor. Theodore Milton, MD neglected his lawn, frightened trick-or-treaters, and flagrantly ignored the Homeowner Association's mailbox specifications. But when she began to suspect that he was engaged in criminal activity, she decided it was time to act.
Then she disappeared. Now, six months later, her house stands empty and Dr. Milton's is up for sale. And while Leigh's house-hunting Aunt Bess may think that the doctor's humble 1940s ranch has potential for greatness, all Leigh can think about is the creepy stuff he left behind.
Something about buying a house from a man who's in a coma gives Leigh the heebie jeebies. But when mysterious third parties start bidding the price up, strangers prowl the empty house at night, and Aunt Bess insists she's moving in anyway, Leigh gets officially worried. What was the eccentric doctor really up to? And what is it that everyone keeps searching for?
Leigh isn't sure she wants to know. But somebody has to look out for her intrepid Aunt Bess. Because in this neighborhood, every dog walk may be your last.

Edie Claire's Leigh Koslow Mystery series just keeps getting stronger and stronger. “Never Nag Your Neighbor” brought me back to my friends in Pittsburgh with a curious mixture of plots and subplots. Leigh has a large extended family, not to mention a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, each of whom has a carefully crafted persona. From Aunt Bess, a very wise, VERY independent woman in her 80's to Allison, Leigh's almost-in-college daughter who is smart as a whip and a budding investigator, we watch intergenerational spats and exchanges of wisdom. The mysteries woven throughout the book are intriguing. Leigh, as usual, delves into the situations trying to determine truth, alternatingly annoying and assisting her long-time friend and highly regarded detective, Maura. Ms. Claire has a gift for creating well defined characters and believable story lines. She has promised a new book every year. The journey will continue to be interest-grabbing now that Leigh and her husband are entering the empty nest phase and both are setting off on new paths. Together. I highly recommend this book, this series and all Ms. Claire's books.
