Then, she meets a woman who will be perfect for the preacher, and just GIVES UP? And then assumes he's going to know, without...more
Seriously DO NOT CHASE DANGER. DO NOT BREAK INTO A MURDERERS HOUSE. CALL THE DAMN POLICE!
Also this book made me feel like I'd been banished to adverb hell for awhile. The dialogue tags almost always had an adverb to explain further what the words meant (because apparently understanding the words themselves mea...more
Since Roe quit her job at the library, she's got a bit of spare time on her hands, so she decides to hang around Select Realty, which happens to be her mother's business. She wants to see if she likes it, and maybe then she can purs...more

I think I like this book more than the previous ones because it seems Charlaine Harris has finally found that little something that makes books addictive. And this "something" is certainly sexual attraction between her characters. She did a great job describing intereactions between Roe and Martin in this book. Although I have to...more
Review -- still an enjoyable mystery. I like mysteries, but I don't read them that often. I like this series because of course it's about a librarian, and I like the setting and characters, though there are a few too many of them. It's a good book to read during a high stress time --just enough, not too much, thought required.
But once I got over that, it was very easy to get drawn into the mystery. I actually quite like Roe. She's feisty in a good way, though prone to fits of stupidity. But hey, nobody's perfect.
I kind of like Martin too, though I'm very uneasy about him...more

Roe has a lot more cajones in this book. When she eventually confronts the murderer, she doesn't tense up and become afraid. She fights back, which I think is mighty bad-ass. I almost forget that she is a pet...more

At the beginning of this book Aurora is still dating Aubrey Scott, the priest. But it soon becomes apparent that this relationship is comfortable but not everlasting. Simultaneously, Aurora tries to be a real estate agent and shows one of the nicest houses in Lawrenceton to a new businessman in town, Martin Bartell, and it is love at first sight on both sides.
While all these hormones are f...more
Like Sookie Stackhouse Aurora attracts trouble without meaning to. She's always present when something crappy happens and that's got the town thinking she's kind of bonkers herself. Oh...more
I mostly don't enjoy romance in a mystery as it often detracts from the plotting, but it works well here. A good entry in a long series, this third of the Roe Teagarden stories simply raced along, pulling me further, and faster, into the story. Female realtors are being found strangl...more

There's a love interest introduced in this book who Aurora attaches onto rather quickly, and I never understood why. She talks to her mother and best-friend-from-afar about how much she likes him, but the conversations sounded more like Roe trying to talk herself into it than th...more
Meanwhile Roe also has continuing relationship issues. She keeps running into her ex police officer boyfriend and his new wife, plus for awh...more
Third in the Aurora Teagarden series, one great new look.
Deciding if she wants to go into real estate becomes a life-or-death choice for Aurora "Roe" Teagarden. A naked corpse is discovered at her first house showing.

At loose ends after her adventures in A Bone
