"entertaining amateur sleuth"
Lilah Murchison is not a very nice woman so when she dies
in a plane crash nobody mourns her passing, not even her
son Dean. He does expect to inherit her sizable estate so
he's shocked when the will is read and he learns that Lilah
was not his mother. She left the bulk of her estate to her
true heir provided he or she comes forward in five years.
Leah Koslow is also at the reading of the will, standing in
for her father who was a beneficiary as long as he provides
medical care for Lilah's cats until their deaths. From the
time the will is read, Leigh's father's clinic is
threatened, Lilah's housekeeper dies, and somebody gets
murdered who is connected to the case. Concerned about her
father and his employees, Leigh investigates and almost
gets killed in the process.
Edie Claire always writes an entertaining amateur sleuth
novel, and NEVER TEASE A SIAMESE is her best work to
date. The heroine is so earnest and logical it is
impossible not to like her while the supporting cast lends
humorous moments to a very serious story line. Fans of
Lydia Adamson and Susan Wittig Albert will definitely want
to read this book.
