A Fool and His Honey (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries #6)
Dead Over Heels was definitely not one of my favorites in this series. The mystery seems contrived--a body is pushed out of a plane to land in Roe's yard, and the fact that a couple of murders and assaults have arisen from someone's unrequited love for Roe feels artificial. Roe's complete obliviousness, meanwhile, is not at all Roe-like. A whole array of core characters have emerged out of Roe's...more
Aurora’s been around long enough to know that when a day starts out with your handyman going crazy in your front yard, it probably won’t get any better. Sure enough, her husband Martin’s niece Regina shows up with a baby whom no one knew she was expecting. Then she disappears, leaving behind the child—and a murdered husband. To find her, Roe and Martin retrace her steps from sunny Georgia back to snowy Ohio, where they will uncover dark family secrets—at their own peril.From Publishers Weekly
The main character, Aurora Teagarden came off as whiny and self-centered. Many times throughout the book she alludes to the painful situation of not being able to have children, yet she complains continuously about a baby who has been dropped in her...more
Just when Roe is sure her day can't get any worse--after the handyman dropping off some timber flips out in her backyard--Regina, Martin's niece, drops in unannounced. With a baby. When no one even knew she was expecting. If that's not strange enough, the erratic behaviour of their dinner hosts adds to her list of worries...more
And that is just the start of it. After Martin heads into work to do a couple of things bef...more
The day everything went rotten was the day the woodman went crazy in my backyard.
Well, that's a fine how-do-you-do! Harris seems to have more fun with this one, and also things get good and dark here. The book lagged at points, and characterization of Aurora is still all over the place; she remains not especially likable, but, without giving too much away, at...more
Ok, spoiler alert: If you plan on reading A Fool and His Honey, STOP READING RIGHT NOW!
So, Aurora Teagarden works with books, part-time, and her husband is fifteen years her senior. How can I (until recently a bookstore clerk, and with a man fourteen years my senior) not relate? Said husband dies horribly of a heart attack at the closing of this book, after being present at a shootout. Ok...more
Un nuevo misterio asoma la pata por debajo de la puerta de la casa de Aurora y es que quién llama al timbre no es más que la sobrina de su marido Martin disfrazada de problemas, Regina. Para empezar aparece con un recién nacido del que nadie tenía ni idea, ni Martin ni Barby (su madre) ni ningún conocido de és...more
At first I thought I would enjoy this tale of a liberated Southern belle librarian and would recommend it to a friend who is an avi...more
In this book, Roe's husband's niece Regina shows up unannounced on their doorstep with a baby no one knew she had and a secret. Regina disappears as fast as she shows up, leaving behind her baby and the body of her ax murdered husband.
Roe is left with the baby, struggling with the...more

I was mind numbingly bored by the time I decided...more
This is definitely one of the better books in the series. Writing is very engaging as usual. I enjoyed seeing Roe interact with a baby which she thought she wanted to have so badly but couldn’t. I also thought the mystery itself...more
I picked this up in the library assuming it was a teenage book of sorts, from both author and cover, and so when it had none of the engaging hallmarks of a teenage book, that was mildly confusing. And from that point on at which I realised it wasn't that sort of book, I really wanted to know what sort of book it was...and I never did...and I didn't really care for it at all. The characters didn't ring well for me, the plot seemed rambling and uncomfortable, and I just wanted to know what was goi...more
There were lots of deaths in this one, an implausible story and again with the final explanation right at the end. Also, a lot more of Roe feeling sor...more
No that I forgot the first novel already, that would be lying.
It has this kind of refreshing style, simple and direct, a page turner without being unforgettable, but still, a really nice moment passed while reading those books.
With this 6th volume, it's an other story. The main character, Aurora, gained in depth...more
A Fool is also a good read. The characters were varied and most believable. The story was fun and sad at the same time. But the most enjoyable part of the book was the main character. She is strong and vulnerable. She is loving and mean or hateful. The author allows us in that mind to expe...more
Martin and Roe are even more surprised by another young man who appears behind the couch in their front room. He is a friend of Regina's and her husband. Aurora and Martin have to take him back to Regina's home town and hope...more
Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was wr...more
