When her new neighbor Jake Carstairs is murdered in her driveway, square dance caller and accidental sleuth Darla King has a new mystery to solve. This time, it hits close to home. The mystery, and Jake’s wife, follow Darla to the National Square Dance Convention in Nashville. Darla needs to figure out what Jake’s wife and the killer want before Darla faces more trouble than she can handle. As the tension builds, Darla and her friends from Clearton Squares once again contribute to solving a mystery. Her romantic life tangles up with her professional life and her sleuthing, but eventually Darla figures it all out.
Follow Your Neighbor is the third book in the Darla King mystery series. The first book in the series, Right and Left Grand, found Darla and her friends involved in solving a string of burglaries. The second book, Load the Boat, featured a square dance cruise where Darla encountered a dead crew member, a mysterious man with a satchel, and the return of an arrogant yet irresistible FBI agent.

About This Author
Rosalee Richland is the pen name of two square dancers and writers. As Rosalee, co-authors Cyndi Riccio and Rhonda Brinkmann joined forces to create the Darla King cozy mystery series.  Darla’s curiosity often puts her squarely in the midst of unusual circumstances, and Darla can’t let go until the mystery is solved.  Through Darla and her friends, readers are exposed to the warmth and friendship among square dancers, as well as the enjoyment square dancing brings worldwide.
When not writing, Darla’s co-authors enjoy reading, traveling, meeting readers and fans, networking with other authors, and – of course – square dancing.  The first in the series is RIGHT AND LEFT GRAND and takes place at various locations in Texas.  The second in the series is LOAD THE BOAT. As you might guess from the title, this one takes place on a cruise ship.

My review:  Follow Your Neighbor
This is the third book in the series.  The mystery was okay.  I guessed right about a lot of it before the reveal.  To me I liked best the relationships between all the characters.  Especially the square dancers and callers.
I liked the ending of the book. It fit really good for me.
The square dancers and callers sure go to a lot of events.  They work hard on learning the calls and the dances. It makes you want to check out square dancing in your own area.  It brings lots of my own memories from years ago trying to learn it.  It sounds like a lot of fun and companionship.
Darla King is the main character.  She is a caller for square dancing and travels a lot with it.  While she is away her new neighbor is found dead in her driveway.  Darla is a widow and her daughter is away at college.  She is dating a FBI Agent.
Darla is curious about her neighbor.  She only met him once for about 5 minutes but know one believes her.  Especially the bad guys.  Someone broke into her house and gave it a good search.
This a clean read and a fast read.
The setting is in Texas.  It shows the life of square dancers in the area.  It is full of drama and mystery and makes you want to dance.

I was given this ebook to read so that I could give a honest review and be part of Follow Your Neighbor blog tour.
