Algunos puntos son predecibles (miren mis updates si no me creen ;) ), pero no los principales, al igual que el primer libro logró confundirme y tomarme por sorpresa.
Amo la naturalidad de Harris para escribir y lo poco que llevo leído de esta serie me está gustado mucho.
Death comes calling on a small-town librarian whose life is passing her by.
Aurora "Roe" Teagarden's fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat.

On the heels of her mom's wedding, Aurora (Roe) inherits the estate of a fellow Real Murders Club member. In addition to the house and money, she also acquires a skull and a mystery, as well as a new beau and some interesting new neighbors.
