    "Another Meander with Aurora"

    In this installment we jump over the possible double lover dilemma that ended the first book and go straight into the aftermath of both a failed relationship and the death of a friend. It is another slow meandering stroll through Roe's life and it is mostly pleasant, witty, and humorous enough. The biggest problem with this story is that, even more so than in the first, the solution to the mystery is revealed rather than solved. The action at the end seems more than a little implausible as well. Moreover, we discover at the end that if Roe had been a little more methodical and a little less clever in the beginning, there would have been no mystery for her to solve--or attempt to solve, rather.

    The narrator does a generally good job, but she does not use a Southern accent and her nasally voice doesn't hint of the South.

    Still, this is a mildly enjoyable pleasant stroll through Aurora Teagarden's evolving life and worth the few hours of listening.

    "Team Teagarden All the Way!!!"
    Where does Bone to Pick rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bone to Pick ranks pretty high among the audiobooks I have consumed. It kept my attention start to finish.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it was engaging, funny, and an enjoyable read (listen).


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    All of them. Some books really don't transfer well to audio, mainly because the characters are not distinctive enough for you to recognize them based on their actions/attitudes/tone. But Ms. Harris defined distinct characters who stand out alone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was, and yes I did.

    "A BONE TO PICK"

    The more I listen to these stories, the more I enjoy listening. This is the second in the series and I like the style and wit of "Ro". She's quite down to earth and very likeable. Ready for book three. Enjoy.

    "Another Aurora Teagarden hit"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely - but only to my friends who are lovers of mystery. Roe Teagarden is a fun character, and this novel provides a solid mystery.


    What other book might you compare Bone to Pick to and why?

    This book had a Mary Higgins Clark feel to it - it is definitely not a cozy mystery, if that is what someone is looking for. What it is: a fab mystery with a strong heroine and an interesting story.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    Aurora Teagarden - but I loved all the characters. Plummer really brings life to the story, and I think it would be a different experience if I had read it. She really sells the story.

    Story
    "Early Entry in the Series"

    My introduction to Charlaine Harris was the Aurora Teagarden series. I read the early books and loved them. I was delighted when I found this series on Audible (and I suspect I have the later, very popular, vampire series to thank for that.)

    This story sets the stage for Aurora's later adventures. Aurora matures as the series goes on, and I find the later books more interesting and fun. Even so, it was good to be reminded of how it all began.

    You will not find anything supernatural in this series. However, you will find interesting characters, good mysteries and a little romance. The violence is not excessive, the language is not offensive. These are light entertaining stories.

    Therese Plummer is excellent. She makes Aurora and all the characters seem real.

    "Another Entertaining Chapter"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the point in the series where our librarian heroine becomes unexpectedly well off, freeing her up to spend more time investigating mysteries. I was pretty surprised at the direction Roe's love life takes at the beginning of this book. As fans of the series may know Roe's love life is something of a challenge. Like all Charlaine Harris books, we hear a lot about that and about what Roe is wearing etc. Similarly typical is that not everything that occurs seems entirely likely, but this does not diminish my enjoyment. But there is a mystery that gets solved, and an exciting ending. Good installment in the series.
