Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best seller Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden mystery series with a fabulous new book featuring the small-town Southern librarian.

In the latest installment of the number one New York Times best-selling Charlaine Harris's Aurora Teagarden series, Robin and Aurora have finally begun their adventure in parenting. With newborn Sophie proving to be quite a handful, Roe's mother pays for a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come help the new parents for a few weeks. Virginia proves to be especially helpful when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.

One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Roe's brother Philip helps her search the house, and they happen upon a body outside. But it isn't Virginia's. Now, not only does she have a newborn to care for and a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, but Roe also has to contend with a new puzzle - who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia?

This heart-pounding and exciting next installment of the Aurora Teagarden series will leave fans happy and hungry for more.

Best book of the series

I liked that the story grabbed my attention immediately and held on till the last word. The narration is amazing. I was so sure I knew who dunnit through most of the book, that I was surprised to find i was wrong. The previous book in the series stressed me out because of the main plot line. This story has danger, intrigue, and a corpse which all lead to a fabulous plot line. The story touches on all parts of Roe's past and neatly weaves the old with the new. It is done with a masterful touch that keeps the story feeling fresh and new. There is no sense of the author putting the story on while while refreshing the readers memories. Masterfully done. I love seeing how well Roe is adjusting to motherhood. It is written well and feels true-to-life. Yet, it doesn't overwhelm the murder plot line. It has been a while since I've picked up a book this good. I highly recommend it!

Enjoyable

A homey mystery, with enough turns and twists to keep you captivated. I was honestly a bit dissapointed with the end, but that could easily just be me. I finished within a few days despite how busy I have been because it hooked me quickly. And the narration was fantastic, brought the book to life.

Happy for a new book in the series.

I love this series! I was so happy to find that a new book was on the pre order list. If anything I think this is the best book in the series. Most of the time I have the "who" figured out before the reveal. Not this time!
My favorite parts of the book are finding out what is happening with the minor characters from the series and the little hint at the end about a possible new story in the future.

Worse book yet

Ok I get she had a baby and that changed her well into a whiny pretentious Brat who is no longer her self but spoiled but done have to hear about the baby when breastfeeding every few pages? we get it. She had a kid and yes breastfeeding is hard and that would be reality based but do we have to hear about the baby constantly.
o have loved all of Me Harris books and the TV shows but this one disappointed me.

I really wanted to like it...

I was so excited for another book in the Aurora Teagarden series. Aurora Teagarden is one of my all-time favorite series and I re-read the series in preparation for this release which seemed to be out of sync. I found the story to be rather slow moving and all the focus on her baby was distracting and annoying. I'm not sure what Charlaine Harris was going for in this release, but for me, it missed the mark. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry

Fun series

I really like this series, I’m also very happy with the narrator. It’s good pairing. Man, did they blow the TV versions though.

Normally <3 Charlaine Harris.

Not suspenseful as expected. Normally <3 Charlaine's books, but this one didn't grab me in and keep me on the edge of my seat. I didn't fall in love with any of the characters. Reader was pretty good, but if I listened at night bf bed, it put me to sleep quickly.
