Aurora “Roe” Teagarden’s life was pretty much in order, though she wouldn’t have objected to a nice relationship. All things considered, however, there wasn’t anything to complain about. Then Jane Engle died. Roe and Jane had been friends. Not particularly close friends, but they’d both been members of the Real Murder Society and on occasion had shared tea, as well as an interest in crime. So Roe was surprised to discover that she was named in Jane’s will as the heir to her home and some money—about half a million dollars, in fact. A nice house, a lot of money … things were looking up nicely. But the house held a secret—a fact that was frighteningly obvious the first time Roe went there and realized that someone had broken in to search for something. It didn’t take long to discover the secret: Jane had hidden a skull, and Roe had just found it.

Aurora Teagarden is no stranger to a good mystery, but she isn’t quite certain what to do with this one. Before she has a chance to consider her next move, someone decides that she already knows too much. Now she has a few more questions to answer: Whodunit? Who was it done to? And who seemed to keep on wanting to do it?

    " Once again - very engaging. I love her characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 1/26/2014

    " A VERY light read. Not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Korry Thorpe | 1/24/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 1/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summer Nettleman | 1/15/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 1/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennie | 12/31/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 12/30/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianna | 12/17/2013

    " Liked this book much better than the previous one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cara | 12/12/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 9/14/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 9/3/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollyhocks | 6/18/2013

    " 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 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 8/31/2012

    " It gets points for being a quick and entertaining read. I don't know that I would recommend this series to anyone though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie (jjmachshev) | 4/22/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 6/15/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 6/12/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keli | 5/20/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 4/29/2011

    " I enjoyed the series..but not really my favorite. I probably wouldn't read again, but enjoyable nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 4/26/2011

    " I liked this one better than the first. It kept you in the dark until the last 25 pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 4/25/2011

    " Man, these books are so short I find myself wanting more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 4/5/2011

    " Aurora Teagarden mysteries are a great read, no thinking, a good laugh and mystery combined. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 4/3/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 3/31/2011

    " As always Charlaine Harris writes clearly and easily. The story was a bit lackluster this time and the book was average, although enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 3/16/2011

    " Aurora gains a fortune, solves a mystery, births a baby and dates a minister. "
