Publisher's Summary

Troubles never come singly. Ellie’s old friend and housekeeper falls off a ladder and hurts herself after seeing a “ghost” in a neighbour’s house, while Ellie is trying to get rid of a desperate young man, who says he’s looking for his great aunt… who happens to own the house in question. Mrs Pryce had told everyone she was moving to a retirement home, but never arrived there. A walk round the block reveals someone is still tending the vegetables in Mrs Pryce’s garden. Perhaps the house is not as deserted as it looks? So where is Mrs Pryce, and who knows more about her departure than they are prepared to tell?

Tedium personified

The story is substandard, the characters one dimensional and reader enough to send you over the edge. I think the book may have been do-able, but the reader read as if she were half asleep. I can't even finish this book.

Neighbor Beware!

Would you try another book from Veronica Heley and/or Julia Barrie?

I have read all but 2 of the books in this series (Ellie Quick) and have loved them. I will definitely be looking for the next in the series. I'm hoping to find the two I haven't read (Murder by Suicide & Murder by Committee) so I can have the entire series.
