Roe and her new and considerably older husband Martin are settled into their new life quite nicely when everything changes with the arrival of Martin's niece Regina. The fligh ...more

Wow!! Huge twist at the end that I didn't see coming....I'm actually a little speechless. Great story but a completely different feel then the previous five books. Much more serious and dark. Good for Charlaine Harris for mixing it up and keeping us on our toes!!

Recommends it for: Die-hard Charlaine Harris fans; I wouldn't even recommend it to Aurora Teagarden fans
I've really been enjoying this series. Aurora is a cute, fun protagonist. But ever since she's married Martin Bartell, it's driven me crazy. I don't see the chemistry between them at all, and he's just a jerk. Then Harris adds these mysterious things in his past that do absolutely nothing for the story. Then in this installment, he suddenly begins treating her (even more) like a stupid woman who's there to serve and take care of him. It drove me absolutely crazy. In the first few books, Aurora w ...more

I think I'm just reading these to say I finished the series at this point. This book finds Roe's husband's niece showing up at her front door with a baby no one knew she had. The niece disappears, leaving the baby and a dead body behind. Roe and Martin then head back to his hometown to try to give the baby to some relatives. Any relatives, I think.

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

Local, part-time Librarian Aurora Teagarden is about to be pulled into a mystery that is almost too close to home. In fact, that is where the adventure starts. With winter setting in, Roe and her husband Martin have ordered some wood. The gentleman who was hired to bring in the wood seems to totally go nuts while doing so. After being led away by the police, it becomes clear that someone spiked his asprin.

And that is just the start of it. After Martin heads into work to do a couple of things bef

Warning: This review contains spoilers for this and the previous book in the series, Dead Over Heels.

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

Well, I am starting to recover from the shocking ending which I sure did not expect! She gives plenty of hints but I totally failed to pick up on them. It may take me awhile to get over this. I felt so sad for Aurora.

I really enjoy this series. Every time I pick up the next book, I get totally captivated by what's going on in Roe's life, and can't believe just how much trouble she gets into.

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

I don't think I liked this book. The people are all unlikeable, most particularly the main character. She really is just selfish and whines a lot. I appreciated one of the characters actually saying this to her face, but it doesn't seem to have helped as the author kept her very unpleasant. Also, how incredibly stupid to not go to the police with everything. You find someone you don't know in your house after someone is killed on your property? Call the police! You figure out the baby you aren't ...more

Another good mystery, better than the previous book. Surprisingly, after 4 books, she suddenly got over her sudden wrap up, which I found annoying. Instead, she's added a bit more complexity with a second mystery along the way & then stretched out the finale. Still tied up as neatly, but not all in a single page. I liked it much better.

Another lackluster Aurora Teagarden book. The best part was when Aurora's friend Sally tried to gently tell her that she was being selfish and Aurora flies off the handle and describes herself with harsh but appropriate language. Not that she learned anything from the conversation. The book seemed a little disjointed, with the majority of it focused on the disappearance of Martin's niece Regina and Aurora and Martin trying to take care of Regina's baby. Despite having friends who have plenty of ...more

“My mouth was dry as cotton and my head hurt like hell. I tried to lift it, and the effort left me shaken and nauseated. I satisfied myself with just shifting my eyes around. I thought of all the books I'd read, all the mysteries. Spencer wouldn't have ended up this way. Neither would Kinsey Milhone. Or Henry O. Or Stephanie Plum, Well, yeah, maybe Stephanie Plum.” 5 likes
