When death comes from out of the blue, part-time librarian Aurora “Roe” Teagarden lands smack in the middle of a baffling murder case—in the latest Aurora Teagarden mystery from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris.

Roe never liked Detective Sergeant Jack Burns, but she never wanted to see him dead—especially not dropped from a plane right into her own backyard. Luckily, even Lawrenceton, Georgia’s, finest know that Roe couldn’t possibly be in two places at once, so her name is crossed off the suspect list.

But then other strange things happen around Roe, ranging from peculiar (her irascible cat turns up wearing a pink ribbon) to violent (her assistant at the library is attacked) to potentially deadly (her former lover is stabbed). Clearly there is a personal message in this madness that Roe must decipher-before it is too late.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/14/2014

    " Very disappointing! Harris can do *much* better than this book. The plot is just incredibly unbelievable. Once again the Youngbloods are wasted characters and Martin is just two-dimensional. But that's not really even the worst of it! It's almost as if Harris sat down one weekend and decided to write this book without any thought or planning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 2/13/2014

    " The first book in the 2nd Omnibus about Aurora Teagarden picks up two years after the previous book, with Roe living happily with Martin, and Angel and Shelby their bodyguards living above the garage. A body is dumped from a plane and a series of brutal attacks follow. It's a little nonsensical and Roe is a bit annoying, especially her habit of describing every detail about what everyone is wearing, but they're quick reads and vaguely entertaining so I will complete the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 2/11/2014

    " I am going to run out of these books! Just can't put them down "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serena DeNardo | 2/6/2014

    " Def. not the strongest of this series. Im still scratching my head over the ending. Still, over all it was pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed this next Aurora Teagarden book. It was a slow build and a fast-breaking climax. The series seems to have quite a bit of life going for it and I'll stay along for the ride! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Klein | 1/19/2014

    " Same rating as the 4th book, The Julius House. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/17/2014

    " When Detective Sergeant Jack Burns is dropped from a plane into Aurora Teagarden's back yard, secrets are discovered as Aurora tries to find out who killed Detective Burns and why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirk Fowler | 1/12/2014

    " AMAZING!! This book was great! Best so far!!! I love Roe and Martin together!!! The killer was a shock to me! Can't wait to start the next book TODAY!!!! "

    " Nice easy little read, forgettable but entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcy | 12/28/2013

    " This book kept me guessing until the end. Overall I liked it. Charlaine Harris has really developed Roe as a character - she has changed so much from the first book until now...which is good because I didn't care for her in the first couple of books. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat | 12/27/2013

    " just started it but guy falling out of plane has promise as a beginning.Okay so this was a pretty good book for the light fluffy mystery that it is, it won't knock your socks off but it's a good time filler. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 12/17/2013

    " These books are so fluffy I can rip through them quickly. The plot in this one was hard to believe--Roe now has a secret admirer who loves her so much he kills people for her? Please. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irishgirl1247 | 12/7/2013

    " This is a series that gets better and better! I liked the first book, but it wasn't brag to my friends good. They have been steadily getting better from book to book. Maybe because this is one of Charlaine's earlier series and she needed to find her grove. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raina | 12/6/2013

    " I just had a difficult time getting into this series. I think she is trying to be James Patterson with one too many different themes going on. Stick to one or two series and make them great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 11/27/2013

    " I was surprised at how funny this was. Think I found another author to like! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ragan | 7/16/2013

    " These mysteries are pretty good. I dead man falling out of an airplane onto your lawn is a pretty good way to start a book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jena | 5/4/2013

    " This one had the worst mystery of them all. I hope the next one is better. "

    " I was a little crazy and read the last book first. Now i have to read the rest. This book was a great read and can't wait to read the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lele | 2/2/2013

    " This is the first Aurora Teagarden book I read and I really liked it. I will probably look for more of them or start with number 1. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 10/10/2012

    " In this one, the mystery was pretty good, and Aurora and her husband are very romantic together, but the twist at the end less than stunned me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/16/2012

    " While this is my least favored of the Charlaine Harris series I still must recommend this as a decent mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 6/6/2012

    " Charlain Harris' Aurora Teagarden are really quick, not really thought provoking books, which offer a really nice distraction when reading heavier books...this one was no exception... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/31/2012

    " Typical Charlaine Harris, where the seemingly ordinary female lead solves a mystery, is in the action and becomes the heroine, all while just wanting to have an ordinary life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/11/2011

    " I loved it!! One of my favorites in the series. I thought I knew who the killer was the whole time, but alas, I was wrong. Great mystery. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 12/5/2011

    " Number 5 in the series and Aurora is back at the library! Yea, this librarian says. And about time, she says. Can you tell that I am absolutely gobbling these LOL mysteries up? My daughter and daughter-in-law love Sookie. Give me Roe every time! "

    " I just love the Aurora Teagarden mysteries!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 6/21/2011

    " What a fun, little light read. I throughly enjoyed the characters and even though this is the first Teagarden mystery I've read the fact that it is the 5th book didn't effect my enjoyment. This is a 'just for fun' read when you don't want anything meaty. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gizzard | 6/19/2011

    " A lower than average mystery. And sheesh, could Harris work out her racism problems with a therapist and not in her books. Ya know what all black people have in common Charlaine? Nothing! Not even a common skin color. "

  • 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 4/28/2011

    " Another great book, the blend of mystery, humor and romance makes you want to read continuously to find out how who did it. "

    " I haven't read about Aurora Teahouse for a while and I really enjoyed this book. It is set about 18 months after the last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/10/2011

    " Sometimes these books are trying to work out relationship problems and the mystery without maybe giving each the time they deserve, but I did like the bizarre nature of this mystery and the stuff that happened was kind of neat... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/23/2011

    " I loved this book. I am reading my way through this series as fast as I can read, because I am enjoying it so much. I am afraid to get to the last book, though, because I don't want to leave Roe and the other characters! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley | 1/4/2011

    " A fun one from the start. "
