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?

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "Don't bother. A tedious farce."
    What would have made Murder My Neighbour better?

    Another author, another reader, and an interesting plot. The characters were predictable and hackneyed, the dialogue was forced and improbable, the story line was boring and unsatisfying. The only thing that could make this muddle worse is printing it backwards.


    Has Murder My Neighbour turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has certainly turned me off from the author. Never again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader seemed as bored by the story as we would be. The best parts of the performance were the subheadings: "Sunday morning.... Monday evening."


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    1. Disgust, that the subtext was so offensively Christian, and bordered on the absurd at times. 2. Irritation, that I'd wasted actual cash money on this trash. I'm not particularly anti-religion: I like Katherine Hall Page and Faye Kellerman. But when one can't pick up a physical book and leaf through it, reading the front leaf or back cover, one becomes dependent on the reviewers, and the integrity of Audible. I wish Audible would warn us in advance about explicit Christian proselytizing...
