Aurora Teagarden is basking in her new pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids have gone missing from school--and her teenage brother, Phillip, is one of them. Whil

About a hundred years ago I went through a phase I like to refer to as the “summer of vampire.” I read all about the sparklies, the ones from Morganville, the ones teenage girls write diaries about. I read everything I could get my hands on except those written by She Who Shall Not Be Named. Eventually a friend took pity on me and informed me about the wonderful world of adult vampire stories which featured actual peen rather than an e

Aurora and her husband have recently married and they have just discovered that Aurora is pregnant with their first child. They are so happy at the addition to their family and there are tears of joy when they first see a scan of the baby. This wriggling blog on screen has a heartbeat and after they leave the doctors surgery they set off to share the news. They can't stop grinning but little do they know their happiness is soon to be shattered in a way they couldn't imagine in their worst nightm ...more

Definitely my least favorite book in the series. I'm not sure if the problem was too much time had passed since the author had written the previous book or it's just difficult coming up with good stories when you are on book 9 of a series.

Aurora Teagarden and her new husband, Robin Crusoe, are going to have a baby. The news is just settling in when her half-brother Phillip goes missing along with three other kids. If we know one thing about Aurora it's she is not going to sit around wa

"I had never been able to fathom what people did with their moments, if they didn't read."

Just as she and Robin are happily making plans, her 15 year old brother does not return home. Initially Aurora is not worried until she receives a frantic phone call from a mother looking for her son who is one of Phillip's friends. Aurora soon learns that Philli

I love that marriage and pregnancy has not slowed Aurora down. Charlaine did well in moving the characters on with her next phase in life. It's clear her life as a Bartell is in the past and she has recovered from her grief and moved on. it was a good read. I still hope that she writes more

I have read all the previous Aurora Teagarden books so I was delighted to discover this book. A variety of emotions is covered including joy, kindness gays, bullying, and evil. Roe and Robin are celebrating their marriage and the bundle of joy they are expecting. Four teenagers are missing and another is found dead. Philip, Roe's brother is among the missing. As events began to unravel the facts that one of missing has been bullied, another has a gay lover and another teenager has been kidnapped ...more

What I liked:
- Love the small southern town setting.
- I really like Roe and Robin and I hope Harris is going to now write more books in this series so we can meet their baby and see how they manage parenthood with solving mysteries.
- The mystery was well thought out and I couldn't guess the ending or who the kidnapper was.
- As with all Harris books, it was very easy to become engrossed in the story; very well written and entertaining to read.

What I didn't like:

All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris.
This was my 2nd try at possibly enjoying this book since I had been a fan of 3 series by this author. But it was not for me. I found the characters shallow and the relationships superficial. No depth or quality to the writing itself. She chose, in my opinion, to have little if any depth to the environment.

I have found that the authors I most enjoy seem to enjoy their own characters. This adds life and depth to every aspect of their lives, that includes r

Aurora is happily pregnant, living content with her new husband and her ½ brother Phillip, when suddenly her world is torn apart when Phillip and three other kids disappear. Of course, Phillip being a new comer to town and a runaway, is blamed for their untimely disappearance. Now Aurora must pull out all the stop to uncover the mystery behind the missing kids before it’s too late.

Harris writes a tale that uncovers bullying and hate crimes all within the heart of Aurora’s home town. This puts a

Aurora Teagarden is one of my favorite characters, but this entry into the series was very disappointing. The characters were flat and uninteresting. Pull one of the first books of the shelf and reread it instead.

In this installment of the Aurora (Roe) Teagarden series we have Roe expecting her first child, she's getting to know her half brother Phillip and just enjoying her new marriage with Robin. But things are about to be shaken up for Roe once again when Phillip ends up missing. Police are called and find that more teens are missing and then a dead body is found.

I'm really bad about jumping into the middle of a series and I have not read previous books... yet. I read this authors Sookie Stackhouse
Why did I read this? I've read all the rest & they tickled me for some reason. It's been a long time, so when I saw my library had this one, I thought it a good idea to grab it. Not really. Harris phoned it in, repeating herself a lot, & coming up with a completely ridiculous scenario. Unfortunately, I was most of the way through before I found that out so I finished it.

Reminder to myself - don't read any more of her books, especially this series.

Let me start off by first saying, I love the Aurora Teagarden series. That being said, I loved this newest book in the series too! I couldn't put it down. I devoured it a day. I really love the characters in this series. Can't wait for the next book.

Review - It has been a while since I read the last book in this series, but I immediately got sucked right into the action and back into the life of Aurora Teagarden. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy the mysteries of Charlaine Harris, and how much better they are than the Sookie Stackhouse novels which I have also read. I love Aurora and Robin together, and this mystery is a little different as it involves more of Roe's personal life and more emotional connections than other mysteries, which I rea ...more
I am so glad that Charlaine Harris decided to continue the Aurora Teagarden mystery series, and I'm even more glad that she picked up right where she left off. All The Little Liars was an excellent book in a series I highly recommend.

Roe was obviously back, but she didn't seem quite as sassy as she normally is. Robin is really growing on me, and I can honestly say that Phillip is one of my favorites. I hope he continues to have a part in the series for books to come. Roe's mother is the only cha

Just as an aside - I remember when I first joined Goodreads and I was reading a review of one of the books in this series, where the reviewer mentioned the detailed descriptions of the clothing really dated the books. I said remember when she was at the dance and she wore that forest green dress with the off-white shoes thinking we'll LOL together. Nope, the reviewer said that she would appreciate me not leaving spoilers. Spoilers?! I described the color of the dress for crying out loud. Anyway, ...more

Woohoo! One of the first series I picked up when I started reading was the Aurora Teagarden mysteries and it quickly became a favorite so I was freaking thrilled to see All the Little Liars. And it was a good time. I loved being back with Aurora!

The quick of it is that things are going pretty good with Aurora and her family. Her stepbrother is settling in, she's pregnant, she and Robin are married. Things are good. Until they

13 years after finishing book 8, Harris came to the party and wrote this little number.
I'm so glad she did.
Aurora, her friends, and her town, are just all too interesting to walk away from.
What does make it interesting is how Aurora hasn't really aged since the last book, but the technology has leapt 13 years. ;)

In this instalment, Aurora's half brother goes missing and the mystery seems to keep deepening.
There is also the personal story of her new relationship, her father visiting, and a baby
All the Little Liars is the ninth novel in the Aurora Teagarden series by American author, Charlaine Harris. After more than ten years since the previous book, Poppy Done To Death, Harris has restarted this series at the request of fans who wanted to know what happened to Roe and co. This book takes off immediately from where the eighth book ended. Aurora is (very happily) pregnant, married to Robin Crusoe and looking after her 15-year-old half-brother, Phillip, when Phillip and his new-found fr ...more

Charlaine Harris, most notably known for writing the Southern Vampire series (which was then turned into the TV show True Blood) commenced writing the Aurora Teagarden mysteries in 1990, and published the eighth (and last at that time) in 2003. Fast forward 13 years and she has written and published book nine in the set.

Aurora Teagarden is a librarian turned sleuth, and is up to her 4'11" (5'0" on a good day) height in trouble. I like most of Harris' characters, each for different reasons, but A

This is the first of this series that I have read. I have read the Skokie Stackhouse series by Ms. Harris though so I am familiar with her writing.

It's a good quick read, especially for those who aren't comfortable with graphic scenes, and I enjoyed it.

Aurora is now married to Robin and her half brother, Phillip, is living with them. Phillip and his friends Josh, Joss, and Liza have all gone missing. A girl has been found dead and one of the more affluent families also has a son missing. But c

I have read all the Sookie Books and the new ones but this one is my first Aurora Teagarden book. I have to say, this one was pretty good. There were a lot of suspects and I had no idea who did it. I just love Charlaine Harris and I am glad to see that see that she is still giving us good books to read!!

This was a crazy and I mean crazy one. I could not believe the ending. I don't want to spoil it for you, but this ending will blow your mind. And Aurora's dad and his new wife, too bad they weren

I am a big Charlaine Harris fan. I have read all of her series, every single book. I started with Aurora, moved on to Lily, plowed through Sookie, devoured Harper, and finished with Manfred. I love these books, and I was so excited to get this newest Aurora book in my hands. I have been waiting for a long time for her to return to her older series which I thought were much better than the Sookie books. All the Little Liars wasn't what I was expecting.

Wow, This installation in the Aurora Teagarden series was really relevant to events that happen today. Mean girl bullying, parents covering up for their children for their immoral acts... super real stuff. Roe’s brother goes missing with two other teenagers and a pre-teen. Another teen is found murdered, one commits suicide. The storyline does not tread lightly on these topics but treats them quite Matter-of-fact. This mystery is not for the faint-hearted who become upset easily over such topics ...more

Less relevant content to the mystery than filler, Aurora's internal monologue constantly made me want to bitchslap her, and I am rating three stars for it. The mystery itself wasn't bad, but she's definitely just milking her cash cow again at this point. Should've stopped at #8. MOO.
