Publisher's Summary

Love at first sight turns into newlywed bliss for former librarian Aurora Teagarden-until violence cuts the honeymoon short. Wealthy businessman Martin Bartell gives Roe exactly what she wants for their wedding: Julius House. But both the house and Martin come with murky pasts. And when Roe is attacked by an ax-wielding maniac, she realizes that the secrets inside her four walls - and her brand-new marriage - could destroy her.

I LOVE AURORA!

I read most of the books in this series when they were first published. It is a treat to hear them as audio books years later.

I have read books from other series written by Charlaine Harris, but Aurora has remained my favorite character. As the series progressed, Aurora matured and progressed as a character. I believe that is one of the reasons she seems "real" to me, and I've never tired of her.

In this book Aurora has married, and found her "dream house". However both her marriage and the house include a few nightmares that she hadn't expected. This is the story of how she deals with those nightmares.

Ms. Harris populates her books with interesting and unique characters, many of whom show up in later books. This book is the first appearance on the Shelby and Angel Youngblood. I hesitate to write much about them because I don't want to include any "spoilers." I will just say I find them unique and fascinating.

Narrator Therese Plummer is superb. Her work added so much to my enjoyment of the story.

This is a mystery that includes a little romance, a little humor, and lots of puzzles. If' I'd had the time I could easily have listened to the entire book in one sitting. It was great fun to listen to, and I was sad when the end came. I intend to "revisit" all the books in this series.

Loved it on Hallmark and even more as a book.

We love this series on the Hallmark Channel, but we love it even more as a novel. The Character is much more developed. The best part about this book is that I can listen to it when my middle school and high school kids are in the car. No foul language and no crazy sex sequences even though it's a murder mystery.

Narrator makes this book a great listen

I read this book some years ago between the early Sookie books and I was searching for more Charlaine Harris. Ms. Harris has always been a good writer, but the feeling here is very different from Sookie, and for me there was no joy here, just some contentment, and a bit of self-pity. Terese Plummer's reading gives this book a bit of bounce and energy that I didn't enjoy just reading the books. I am so glad I paid attention to audible reviews and downloaded this book.

LOVE this series!

Where does The Julius House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Thank you Charlaine Harris for creating these stories for me to submerge in to. I enjoy your characters and appreciate sharing their lives without having to give advice or listen to their problems. I LOVE being in total control of my visits with them and that makes our times together most enjoyable!

Better and Better

I fell in love with "Ro" right from the start, but this one was absolutely the best... the ending was an absolute surprise, and I am so disappointed that I don't have a credit until next month to download book #5. I really like this lady!

Story line

I love listening to Aurora Teagarden, but I was offended by the language. The story line did not those to get the point across.

Great book, horibble skipping

I love this series of books, but starting at chapter 14 the skipping is so bad I had to quit listening. If it gets fixed, please let me know...for now I'll be returning it.

Not at all up to Ms Harris' usual quality.

There was just too much that was not believable especially the new husband. Just to "cutsie" for even a cozy mystery.
