    " I enjoyed this book a great deal. It wasn't predictable and it cracked me up several times. Will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series. "

    " Although this is a murder mystery, it's a pretty light read: easy, funny, and quick. Roe Teagarden inherits a house from an older friend, and as she is cleaning it out and trying to decide if she wants to sell it or keep it, two equally shocking things happen: she finds a skull (yes, a human skull) in the window seat...and her ex and his very pregnant wife move in across the street. Roe finds it hard to figure out which one throws her off more, but she does spend more time trying to figure out A) whose skull it is and B) who was responsible for for killing...whoever it is. "

    " This series is much like watching a soap opera. It's a quick read, with a decent flow of the story and enough twists to make you question what you think is going to happen. However, this book in particular was not my favorite. It felt like there was too much of the same lead in and then all of the sudden the mystery was solved and nothing happened with it. I read it in a couple of nights so I'll probably finish out the series. "

    " I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I picked it up at the library as a quick read for the commute to work, but was quickly drawn into the world of 'Roe' and her friends/enemies. It was entertaining and well-written, I will be checking out the other books in the Teagarden series. "

    " While the series doesn't have the sparkle or the edge of the Sookie Stackhouse series, it features interesting characters and a serviceable mystery. I found the first book to be enjoyable bujt averamge. The second book engaged me more quickly and made Roe a more likable character. "

    " While this fits into my favorite cozy mystery genre it seemed to be like so many other series I'd read. Just change the names, places, and theme (tea, knitting, librarian...) and they're interchangeable. "

    " As far as mysteries go, this one was pretty sub par, but as a story with a mystery in it, it was ok. The narrator does a fantastic job of reading, and is one of the main reasons I keep listening to these books. "

    " My first of the Librarian series. I understand it is not so good as her other series BUT I will be the judge of that. "

    " This was standard Harris style - quick, easy, fun. I think this may be one of my favorites of hers. "

    " Kinda boring. I'm hoping not all books will strictly go the same way as this one did. It follows more the day-to-day boredom of Aurora's life and then adds a few mystery details here and there ... then all of a sudden, solved .. I don't know ... maybe I just need to get used to this formula of story "

    " LOVED IT...! I identify with Roe Teagarden in SO MANY WAYS... I had a LOT of fun reading this book and look forward to going to the library and getting another one tomorrow :) PS Buuvei thought this book was about pirates because there is a skull on the front. "

    " This was just as good as the first Roe Teagarden book. I didn't expect the perp to be who dun it - I am usually pretty good at figuring them out long before the end of the book, so this says a lot. Well worth the read. "
