Charlaine Harris—#1 New York Times bestselling author—delivers a “strong and authentic” (The Mystery Reader) Aurora Teagarden Mystery. Though Roe has proven she can handle just about anything, this part-time librarian may not be ready for the full-time crises that comes her way…

Aurora Teagarden’s life finally seems to have settled into a comfortable pattern. Her marriage to Martin is going well, she’s back at work at the Lawrenceton library—and she hasn’t found a dead body in quite a while. But then one afternoon her handyman goes crazy in her front yard. Roe suspects this is a sign of more bad things to come—and she is right.

Soon Martin’s niece, Regina, shows up with a baby that no one knew she had. Then she disappears, leaving behind the child—and a murdered husband. To find her, Roe and Martin retrace her steps from sunny Georgia back to snowy Ohio, where they will uncover dark family secrets—at their own peril.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A gripping tale...Harris mixes elements of a cozy and her darker themes with skill and panache.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This second Roe Teagarden mystery is capably written and accurately captures the varied landscapes of Georgia and Ohio. Although the tale starts out like an endearing cozy with a Southern accent, Harris ambushes the reader with a stunning ending that carries the impact of Sherlock Holmes falling into the Reichenbach Falls.”

    Booklist

  • “Live-wire action, small-town antics, unexpected plot ramifications, and a humorous tone make for fine reading.”

    Library Journal

  • “Gossipy, blithe, often funny—with a wind-up that’s fierce, shocking, and poignant. A winner for Harris.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mirah W | 2/18/2014

    " Once things got started with this book I was like "what?". I really didn't get the plot....it seemed to come out of nowhere....and the side story with the wood delivery at the beginning was just bizarre. I thought the "mystery" part was pretty good aside from it feeling out of place. I wasn't expecting the twist in Aurora's life at the end. I'm wondering where the series will go at thiis point with currently two books left. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/6/2014

    " When Martin's niece shows up at their home with a baby, Aurora and Martin don't know what to do. After putting them in the garage apartment, they out to dinner, returning they find a dead body on the steps leading to the apartment, the niece missing and the baby left. They travel to Ohio to try to find relatives to care for the baby, and in the process find out why the niece was running and the killer of the baby's father "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine Taylor | 1/29/2014

    " I love this series (and this author's other series too) and this was no exception. Quirky characters, gruesome murders and a light fun tone make this a really enjoyable read. And as a bonus, Roe is a librarian! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 1/28/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley | 1/25/2014

    " This one was a bit darker then the rest but still exciting and a fun read. Looking forward to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann Marie | 1/20/2014

    " This was the first I've read by Charlaine Harris. This was a lightly written, modern day mystery. While I had the who done it part figured out, nothing surprised me more than the totally unexpected twists and turns. Aurora Teagarden's niece shows up on their doorstep with a baby no one knew she had. This was the beginning of a saga that brought Aurora and Martin back to Martin's hometown where they learned more than they bargained for about their family and neighbors. I liked this book and look forward to reading more from Harris. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 1/11/2014

    " I have loved every book in this series, until now. So bummed. Didn't enjoy the plot & hated the ending. Can't say anything else, because I don't want to spoil for others who may be reading. "

    " The sixth Aurora Teagarden mystery. Sure, I'm hooked and have the seventh on hold at my library because this one is a real shocker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K. | 12/6/2013

    " I love this series, but this was the last one I read. I won't tell you why, because it will reveal too much, but I dont have the heart to read the next few. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Christiansen | 7/8/2013

    " Another quick & easy read. This series is my favorite Charlaine Harris series because she leaves the sex out and just sticks with the story. I appreciate that. "

    " not as engrossing as previous books but it was ok "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 11/16/2011

    " just not into this series...this was a decent story, but at the end, the long term arc just happened...we began the book in a certain "stage" of Roe's life, and now, it's changed with little fanfare. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 10/28/2011

    " One of the librarian Teagarden series. Woman disappears, leaving her baby behind. Husband found dead at the scene. Who did it? Whose baby is it really? Suspenseful, fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Flynn | 10/27/2011

    " Very entertaining. A quick read. This is the 6th book in a series, but the first one I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 10/13/2011

    " I just finished book #6, A Fool and His Honey, in this series, and I just loved it. I couldn't stop reading! I have actually read three books in this series in two days, because they are so good that I just have to see what happens next to Roe and the other characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bookmole | 4/21/2011

    " Even though I am reading (have read) the whole series in one gulp, this book make me wonder why I bother, what with a murder, a baby, a mystery explained, snow and lots of it, more death and finally the writing out of a main character. Fun times.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 4/4/2011

    " This is a new series staring Ro Teagarden and I was so bored with these two books that I ended up reading the first fifty pages then finishing the last forty. Charline Harris is a wonderful writer but I just don’t like Ro. She’s a weenie, whinny, silly woman. Well, you can’t win them all. "
