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.

Interesting story line, but too much baby

Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Therese Plummer?

It was well read and I do like Charlaine Harris overall works.

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

I kept going despite the fact that the constant dialogue about baby eating, burping, the cuteness of the baby, baby diapering, on and on baby reference was so overdone. But I thought the story was interesting and I really wanted to find out what happened in the mystery. The story didn't benefit from all the over the top baby references.

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

I thought she did a great job with all the characters.

Do you think Sleep Like a Baby needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, there might be top much baby in it. Heaven forbid that there would be another child....

Any additional comments?

The book could have been 1/4 to 1/3 shorter without all the needless baby crap.

Better than the last one or two

I really enjoyed this one. The first few in this series were riveting and then my interest waned a bit. I picked up this one though and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Love Ro

This story didn't disappoint. I love the storyline and the cast of characters are great. I also love how loose ends were tied up. Please keep them coming about Ro.

Another wonderful Charlaine Harris novel!

I have read every one of Charlaine Harris' books and I love them all (but it's been several years since I binge read them all). I was thrilled to discover there was a new Aurora Teagarden book that I hadn't read. It was wonderful just as I expected. Plus it was great having Aurora & Robin together. I had just watched the new Aurora Teagarden Hallmark movie Last Scene Alive and was confused as to why Aurora wasn't with Robin (bad call Hallmark, the chemistry is already there between them, kill Martin off already! ) I think it's time to re-read the whole series.

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.

too much baby

Way too much baby stuff in the story! I did not enjoy reading about everything that comes with a newborn.

Great family cozy

Fast-paced story with engaging characters and just enough surprises. A cozy cozy with Aurora in the thick of it as usual.

I love her books, but

This one was so boring it was almost white noise. I didn’t finish it. 3 hours left.
